# 292 - WAR - The BBC and the countryside.

From the Telegraph on Saturday.

I'm glad to see the Countryside Alliance is now led by an ex Army General who calls a spade a spade.

Sir Barney White-Spunner is particularly exercised by the BBC and its coverage - or lack of it - of rural issues. He goes on to say " We do not think the BBC is balanced or fair. It gives a view of rural  England as seen from central London and when the BBC says they try and give a balanced view they mean a balanced view between two people in central London, and not a balanced view between central London and the countryside."

Here here to that as of course has been obvious for years as the BBC is bias in favour of a metropolitan elite. For example while the BBC  clearly oppose the badger cull they focus less on farmer's cows and TB or the loss of hedgehogs to badgers. Also it surely worth a comment from the BBC that 1000s of deer are culled every year to keep the herds down to manageable numbers.

And this from the Guardian back in March.

Deer culling on massive scale backed by expert

New research shows that only by killing 50% to 60% of deer can their numbers be kept under reasonable control

The BBC is bias against the countryside.
