# 184 WAR - Mark Thompson admits BBC was bias.

The BBC’s coverage of the Arab Spring has been heavily criticised – by the corporation’s bosses. Head of news Helen Boaden admitted that her journalists got carried away with events and produced ‘over-excited’ reports. She told BBC Trust that in Libya, where reporters were 'embedded' with the rebels, they may have failed to give both sides of the story properly.

So says By Paul Revoir, Daily Mail - June 27, 2012

May have failed!!!!!!

Look at the coverage of Syria now. Are they again 'embedded' in with the rebels?

The BBC never seems to learn from its mistakes and is still bias to the left of centre of British politics.

Just consider how Mark Thompson admitted the BBC was left-wing in the Thatcher era.

So has anything changed???

  1. Hi,

    during the attack on Libya I never once heard the facts of the incredible achievements of Murmar Gadaffi who led his country from penuary with various tribes mostly at war and few homes for the tented and poverty stricken peoples after the destruction during WWII.

    Gadaffi put ALL his citizens in homes, raised the standards of living hugely and was in the process of de-desertifying large tracts of his desert lands and those of his neighbour states.

    Gadaffi raised his peoples from illiteracy to the highest standard of literacy in Africa with access to free medicine world wide for his citizens and university entry in world class universities and where specific courses were unavailable ensured they could be taught in THE appropriate university overseas.

    Where exactly was BBC balance in its reporting?

    The BBC was soo busy selling propaganda it failed miserably to provide balances news - just as it did in promoting the obscene invasion of Iraq or the catastrophic failures in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

    How can one call such a biased organisation a news source when it is merely a propaganda mouthpiece for the betrayal of Britain?
