via IDS: BBC is ‘downgrading’ Cameron’s referendum pledge – Telegraph.

Iain Duncan Smith accuses the BBC of biassed  reporting,  in its low priority given to   coverage of Cameron’s referendum  pledge.

Personally, I am saddened that the BBC, once famous worldwide for the quality of its reporting, is now taking  a biassed view on the news.

Any thoughts on what to do about  institutional bias at the BBC?

  1. David Cameron’s referendum pledge is not worth the hot air he used to make it and both he and the BBC actually want a United States of Europe.

    The last promise from David Cameron on the British people having “their say” was not kept and at this weekend’s Bilderberg meeting held in Copenhagen which the BBC attended but as in all other years since 1954 did not report on, he will have been given new instructions about what to say and do next, which will not include giving the British people a say on anything.

    Dr Alf’s question about the BBC is a separate issue.

    The BBC is biased, over managed, left-wing and does not report what is really happening.

    The solution to the BBC is to abolish the licence fee and force it to operate by subscription and paid sponsorship.

    This would be the first step and the second would be clearing out the Board of Governors and the 100 executives the BBC employs on salaries in excess of £100,000 gbp a year.

    Then I would restructure the whole thing with a clear-out of about 33% of their staff, plus the more useless presenters and left wing reporters.

    This anachronistic purveyor of propaganda would then have to pay its way and earn its keep.

    Actors, playwrights, impresarios, musicians, authors, film stars, comedians, theatre directors and anyone selling something would no longer get free publicity and a long advertorial plus hagiography to plug their latest offerings as they do now in complete abrogation of the BBC Charter which forbids advertising.

    Muslims of an extreme or radical persuasion, Druids and other people opposed to progress, would no longer be handled with kid gloves and those preaching sedition, the beheading of infidels, Sharia Law, global caliphates would not be able to use the BBC as a platform to create trouble for everyone else.

    BBC reporters would have to actually report what was going on without endless speculation or any presumption about what ordinary people were thinking or feeling as was the case with the death of Princess Diana when we were told “that the nation was coming together in grief”.

    You cannot grieve for people you do not know so this sort of presumption is offensive since none of us were consulted or asked about how we felt and BBC reporters are not to my knowledge mindreaders.
