# 177 - WAR - BBC - show bias in London Mayrol election coverage.

Below exract is taken from :-

Current polls for the London Mayoral elections are quite revealing. The major parties – Conservatives, Labour and Lib Dems are naturally standing candidates – as well as The Green Party, UKIP, BNP and a number of independents and small parties.
Firstly, bear in mind that by current polling figures, UKIP is expected to poll around 3% of the vote - around exactly that of the Greens.
So you’d expect that the BBC would be giving coverage to these parties more or less equally, right? I did some snuffling around using Google and found the following facts.
However it is entirely in keeping with the BBC's Guardian view point that they would give more coverage to the 'socialist' Green Party over the 'rightwing' UKIP.
