Opinion: BBC bias and revoking TV licence fee – John Gelmini

Dr Alf poses an interesting hypothetical question but the reality is that the BBC is incapable of “balanced reporting” because of the left-wing backgrounds of their reporters, editors, program makers, Director Generals and interviewers.

It is broadly favorable to the ideals of the Fabian Society, Common Purpose, the Club of Rome and the Bilderberg Conference which it attends each year but never reports on.

The licence fee is an anachronism and the BBC’s output far from being the best in the world is increasingly vacuous and trivial whilst the organisation is bloated, full of grossly overpaid people in non jobs or possessed of no talent.

In addition, it is overstaffed and favors closet socialists, like Miliband, who like the idea of a muzzled press and a cheerleader for the Labour Party.

The BBC which is incapable of meaningful reform, is in daily abrogation of its charter and is run by an out of touch “Board of Governors ” and an even more out of touch “BBC Trust.

It is an outmoded institution which has had its day and which should have its licence fee revoked rather than cut as Grant Shapps suggests.

The BBC which makes boastful claims for itself should be forced to sell its services by subscription.
If the BBC is as popular as it likes to pretend then people will pay and watch/listen and if not then it will have to fund itself through advertising like other channels or go out of business.

Minister’s TV licence fee threat – Telegraph.

Personally, I have mixed views on the BBC.

On one hand, I think that the BBC produces some outstanding programs, especially documentaries. The quality of the BBC often reflects the gold standard in TV programs.

On the other hand, I agree with the Government that the BBC’s reporting is often seriously biased. At it’s worst, this is like a huge propaganda machine representing extreme views. As an institution, there are concerns that the BBC seems to have a higher than national average share of Left-Wingers and gays; there are worries that these groups are only advancing their own views.

Personally, I think that the TV licence fee should be contingent upon independent evidence of balanced reporting.

Let me turn this to an open question:es to the BBC

How should the Government ensure that the TV licence fee that goes to the BBC is strictly contingent upon evidenced of balanced reporting?

Any thoughts?
