# 244 - WAR - Your money squandered and an admission of bias.

I make no apologies for these two stories coming from the Daily Mail as while the MSM can all be tarred with the same brush of often reporting in a very shallow and superficial way IMO I find the Daily Mail can be the most robust at times on taking on the BBC and the liberal left which is why the likes of Polly Toynbee sound so venomous when they mention its name. 

Interestingly this is probably why the Daily mail outsellsall the other papers!

Headlines in the DM on Tuesday read:-

The BBC broke rules with pay-offs of £369million

The BBC stood accused of an 'outrageous' disregard for license-fee payers' money on Monday after spending watchdog found it broke its own rules by handing staff £369million in severance payments.

This went to 7,500 staff of which 401 senior staff were given £61 million.

My comment - ' Nice work if you can get it!'

Then the next day I read the headline:-

BBC chief admits: We had a 'deep liberal bias'

This refered to the  the commnet from former news chief Helen Boaden who admitted that the 'deep liberal bias' in the institution prevented it from reporting on immigration properly.

The report also highlighted the bias over the BBC's coverage of the EU.

My comment - ' so no surprise there then I've been saying this for years!'

Incidently tihs report commissioned by the BBC Trust cost £175,000.

Sadly the BBC remains Institutionally biased.
