US - BBC bias gathering more attention

The Telegraph reports.

The Telegraph first notes the recent startling admissions from the BBC that they are anti American, anti British, pro Islamist and " dominated by trendy, Left-leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism."

Then they point out BBC commissioning editor for documentaries Richard Klein's admission:

"By and large, people who work at the BBC think the same and it's not the way the audience thinks. That's not long term sustainable."

"We pride ourselves on being 'of the people', and it's pathetic.....Channel 4 tends to laugh at people, the BBC ignores them."

Then the Telegraph points out:

The forces of reaction are conversely under-represented in pretty much every BBC panel show that I can think of. I'm not suggesting it has to bring back Jim Davidson, but are there any Right-wing funny men on the BBC? Meanwhile, any Guardian columnist who doesn't have a regular gig on the BBC needs, frankly, to change agents. That newspaper – or the Independent, if they're desperate – is the default button for BBC researchers phoning round for a studio guest.

The death, earlier this year, of Linda Smith, a regular on Radio 4's The News Quiz, and the subsequent glowing tributes to her caustic Left-wing wit from fellow panellists drove home the point that most of them were either serving or former Guardian columnists.

This no trivial matter. The BBC are openly supporting terrorism. Just today the BBC wrote a glowing report praising the Taleban, saying "There is no army on earth as mobile as the Taleban." Music to the terrorists ears no doubt and demoralizing to our troops on the battle field.

The Telegraph continues.

Anyone who could even be vaguely described as Right-of-centre is a rarity. Inevitably, this sets the terms of the debate. And so, as happened in the summer, when a panellist described George W. Bush as a warmongering moron, nobody so much as stirred in dissent. When, a month later, Newsnight tackled the controversy over Ken Loach's allegedly sympathetic film about the IRA, they interviewed two film critics. They were from the Guardian and the Independent on Sunday, and, sure enough, they agreed what a great director he was.

And the Telegraph notes how serious the BBC's problems are.

But does this all matter as much as accusing the Government of "sexing up" a dossier on WMD? Yes, more so. In embedding a liberal agenda in programmes where people's bias antennae may not be so finely tuned, the effect is more insidious. The rocks of the BBC's cultural assumptions are starting to fall apart somewhat: witness its second thoughts on its commitment to multi-culturalism. More reassessments will follow and the BBC, if it has any sense, should welcome them.

As it wrestles with the inevitable decline of its audience in the digital age, impartiality is that rare problem for the BBC – it's one that it can actually do something about.

But it won't. Like most of the left wing media, the BBC is too arrogant, it simply does not care what the public thinks. The BBC lies with impunity.

The BBC admits it lies in its reporting in Iraq but that doesn't stop them.

The BBC were caught red handed fabricating a UK Army desertion story. But that doesn't stop them.

In fact, the BBC have been caught red handed in all manner of fabrications, lies, spin, bias and outright support for terrorists.

The British public need to wake up to the danger the BBC pose to Western civilization and boycott the BBC until it is brought to heel.
