Media bias isn't new

but this made me laugh today as I looking through my news feed, not the subject matter obviously, the reporting







(Not saying BBC is perfect either btw, far from it)

Those two, BBC and Guardian are two of the most loony left institution's going. Read that paper you know what the views will be and not surprised.
Read or listen to the BBC and it's just as bad, but as all tax payers pay for it, it should only tell the news straight, good, bad and ugly, not remove what the board of Directors deem inappropriate.
We only require the News and be allowed to decide for ourselves what is right or wrong and to do that they should shelve their blatant bias.

Possibly, agree it's harsh to pint out a failure, however for weeks they have been banging on about the 100,000 tests per day, as though it was the most important factor on Earth, every bloody day every time they were interviewed, so,, when they fail, as they have done now for four (soon to be five) days, they get it back at them with the full force of the MSM.

Had they been a little more modest and had some humanity and humility they wouldn't get the stark reality flagged up.

The BBC has been speculating on what Boris might say on Sunday making up their own lies as if it is fact and then spreading it around that the government is sending out mixed messages.

Just report the news when it happens.

One thing I will add that infuriates me is politicians, advisers and civil servants with big mouths. Desperate to leak a story.

I was reading today of the lady who as a seventeen year old worked at Bletchley Park during the war. She has held on to the secrets of her work for 75 years.

I just wish these people who think themselves some how clever for leaking a story would reflect on this lady and just keep their big gobs shut.

I'm OK with the reporting of the failure to meet a target, it's the fact that the three sources give us three different things that failed.

Yes I get that too, sadly it is actually very hard to get them to accept responsibility, for failings on any level, apart from the one day they did hit 100k then almost every member of the party wanted a slice of the old success claiming pie

It makes me laugh, all my left leaning friends on social media all berate the bbc for being in the tories pockets and not giving the truth.

It seems depending on you political views you believe the bbc is doing things it shouldnt.

Everyone know the guardian is left leaning and more liberal. Looking at the headlines of the tory owned papers you would be forgiven for thinking everything in the UK is great and the pubs are back open on Monday. Tally ho blitz spirit and all that

Very true again Leavers bieved the BBC was pro remain,,, Remainers were obsessing that they were very pro leave.

That really did prove to me that they are actually fairly neutral to be honest.

BBC neutral
They pretty much caught up with the Guardian during Brexit and the Guardian is loonier than a box o' frogs!
