# 095 - WAR - Yet more biasfrom our BBC!
I do often wonder when the institutional bias of the BBC will end? Year after year we get official reports commenting on the BBCs bias added to which retiring BBC journalists go to print to point out how they observed this bias at first hand. So two more examples form the Daily Mail this week. 1. Appearing on BBC London's News on Sunday , in African dress, Devon Thomas, who is described as Chair of the 30th Anniversary Brixton Retrospective, said the 1981 riots should be called an 'uprising', explaining: 'In the same way as the people of Egypt and Tunisia were being suppressed and rose up, that is what happened here'. The BBC allowed this pathetically self-deluding statement to be broadcast uncontested. 2. After monitoring coverage of the AV campaign the No2AV claims in a formal complaint to the BBC that the pro-AV movement are interviewed without the opposing view being expressed and points out the BBC has been seduced by the celebrity backers like Eddie Izzard and Kriss Akabusi. a BBC spokesman of course rejected this complaint. The BBC is bias to its core.
