# 214 - WAR - Michael Buerk on the BBC

Michael Buerk joined the BBC in 1970 quitting his £175,000 a year job in 2002 but still continues to be employed by the BBC on Radio 4 with his programmes the Moral Maze and The Choice.

So his articles in the Sunday Mail today criticising the BBC's dumbed down coverage of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and its general bias carries a great deal of weight.

Here is his take on news readers:-

" You get a great deal of money, you have very little work to do and don't need a brain. There are some real lame-brains doing it.

It is the only job that actually requires no talent at all. If you can read out loud, you can do it."

He of course should have added that they must read and take note of the loss making Guardian, support the EU, climate change and the left of centre of British politics!!

Michael Buerk is of course 100% right the BBC is bias which is why I don't pay my TV licence.

# 213 - WAR - Evan Davis Radio 4 presenter.

The Conservative party has complained to the BBC about a 13 minute interview between Evan Davis and George Osborne on Thursday morning Radio 4's news programme. Evan Davis continually interrupted The Chancellor, was extremely aggressive and used on more than one occasion the phase " let's not waste any more time on it" when he hadn't allowed is question to be answered.

My question is very simple can anyone name a single interview in the past 10 years when the BBC have ever been that rude to a Labour politician?

# 212 - WAR - The sacred Guardian newspaper!

The Guardian newspaper is read by a declining readership and as a business is I believe a loosing money.

BBC journalists use it as their default point of view despite the fact it represents such a very small proportion of our population.

During the review of the newspapers on BBC 2's Newsnight at the end of the show the Guardian gets a far greater showing than the the far more popular Daily Mail - if you don't believe me clock it for yourself!

Tonight on the 6 and 10 O'clock news on the item showing the Editors leaving Downing Street 3 Editors were asked for their comments and the longest of the three, which include the journalist and Editor side by side, was the one with the Guardian which was also the third and last thus leaving the viewer with the image of the Guardian Editor.

This is subtle bias but bias none the less!

# 211 - WAR - Attenborough - 60 years in the wild.

Anyone with an open mind would know that on Climate Change the BBC is bias in favour that it is happening and will do all they can to support the thesis.

So it has been with David Attenborough and the above series, especially last night, with loads of crashing glaciers into the sea (a perfectly natural annual event) and lots of comment on there being less ice in the Arctic ( nothing of course on more ice in the Antarctic) which is afterall not a continent but is actually called the Arctic OCEAN!! So so what if the Arctic goes and Greenland once again becomes green?

David Attenborough also added into the mix the worries that the loss of ice in the Arctic would cause the sea levels to rise when anyone knows that after an ice cube melts in a glass the water level actually goes down as the ice cube displaces a greater level of water than the quantity of water when melted!!

The BBC on climate change can simply never report in an unbiased way they have brought into the myth and peddle it for all its worth.
