# 210 - WAR - Press regulation - Leveson.

It is completely unacceptable and bias for BBC journalist, reporters and programme makers to allow Ed Miliband to get away with saying Cameron, who says he doesn't want to even underpin the new press complaints body with government legislation, is letting down the victims of hacking.

Hacking was CRIMINAL and should have NOTHING to do with considerations for the new press regulations.

To allow such shoddy and bias editing to only broadcast Ed Miliband comments without question is institutional bias pure and simple.

# 209 - WAR - The BBC's dirty little secret.

Christopher Booker on the BBC's secret:-

The BBC is heading for more and more exposure of its bias.

There has never been a better time not to pay your TV licence.

# 208 - WAR - Ongoing bias on Thatcher.

This is a great quote from Peter Sissons' article in the Daily Mail yesterday which is referred to in post 207 below:-

" The Lord McAlpine smear may have been a one-off. The bias against Margaret Thatcher is ongoing."

And Peter Sissons should know having spent 20 years as a presenter and 5 years as chairman of Question Time.

Never has there been a better time not to pay your TV licence as the BBC has a Royal Charter to report in an unbias way and yet in watching the BBC you get a left of centre political bias, a pro EU bias and a pro climate change bias to name the main 3.

I don't pay my TV licence and they seem to have gone very quiet in chasing for payment - I wonder why?!

They are guilty of bias and it may just be sinking into their liberal elite left of centre heads that they are.

However changing this is going to be impossible as turkeys will NEVER vote for Christmas!!

# 207 - WAR - Was the BBC's blind hatred of Mrs T to blame?

Simon Heffer asks this question here:-

The answer is of course too bloody right!!

# 206 - WAR - The BBC hates Conservatives.

Cameron of course is not a Conservative so he gets a relatively free ride but the likes of Lord Mc Alpine and Thatcher are classic hate figures within the BBC and so are fair game as often as they can be brought onto the airwaves.

This would explain why Newsnight would have jumped at the chance to broadcast the story about Mc Alpine and why on the Jeremy Vine show on an item on who people burn on their bonfires we had the obligatory caller who said they always burn Thatcher.

What about those of us who would like to burn Blair or Brown - we never seem to get a mention!

The trouble with the BBC is that it has a left of centre bias in its DNA and is summarised brilliantly by James Delingpole here:-

 Is the BBC toast? I wish!

# 205 - WAR - A further week of bias.

1. Reports of recession end - Typically each report on the statistics always included the loss of 1400 jobs to Turkey from the Ford van factory. However no surprise that the BBC didn't comment on the soft EU loan to Turkey to help their Ford factory take our jobs. The BBC of course has had soft EU loans and seldom likes to report the EU in a bad light.

2. Ash disease - Most reports during the week on this ended with a mention of global warming. Trouble is the world's temperatures have NOT risen in the last 15 years.

3. Andrew Marr's Start the Week - The panelists for this radio 4 Monday programme on Torture included:-
Ian Coburn - Guardian reporter (of course!) and author of 'Cruel Britannia'
David Anderson - QC
Clare Bayley - play write of play on Rendition
MR Hall - Crime writer
 The programme did little if anything to quantify the degrees of torture around the world but concentrated on the 5 British techniques of :-
1. Sleep deprivation
2. Starving
3. Hooding
4. Stress position
5. Subject to noise
There was also apparently an unwritten 6th technique which involved beatings if the subject refused to adopt the stress position.

Now while this is officially torture it is hardly on a par with finger nail extraction and should a book about this be titled 'Cruel Britannia'?

I'm against all torture as it doen't work but the BBC were bias in their selective coverage of torture and the clear assumption from the report that Britain was guilty of torture on a par with more severe regimes.

4. Hurricane Sandy - Most reports like the one at 8.57am on Radio 4 on 29th October comment on climate change yet as I say in 2 above the climate hasn't changed in the last 15 years.

5. Newsnight Thursday 3rd November - on an item on tax issues the 54 year old economist Richard Murphy whose report from his 'Tax Justice Network' was the subject of the discussion was excluded on gender equality issues!
The panelist assembled by the BBC included:-
Miss Dinsey - Fashion blogger
Miss O'Hagen - Junior colleague of Mr Murphy
Mr Dodwell - Deloittes
Typical politically correct bias from our Auntie!!

The BBC has bias in its DNA.
