Good for him.

What's it got to do with the issues? Just one opinion.

You are actually medieval in your thinking - look up 'auctures'.

Well, the thread is in Other Media, specifically the BBC and Ken Loach, a respected director known for his socialist ideals made a speach that addressed bias in the BBC at a Media debate. So what "issues" are you referring to, Malcolm?

Why don't you tell me what you mean by the word?

How is it relevant?

Please stay on topic.

Did you even watch the video?

If not, then why post on this thread?

Quoting Chaucer, 'auctures' are those 'authorities' whose pronouncements are simply accepted as gospel and correct by the faithful. It's a sort-of cult thing, religious and intellectual. No intellectual effort required on the behalf of the believer.

And no, I didn't watch it. Why should I? I'm not in the cult...

Ken Loach is a cult?

You make this assumption without, by your own admission, listening to what he had to say?

Never mind. Please return to the topic or stop derailing the thread.

Neither am I. But I respect Ken Loach as a fine filmmaker who might have something interesting to say about the media, given he knows a few things about it.

Perhaps by Mailwatch standards, that does make me "in the cult". I wouldn't at all be surprised.

At least one response on this thread so far would be slated as "trolling", if it came from other posters. It's a sad state of affairs - 18 months ago, there would have been some interesting discussion. Now it's petty sniping.

This isn't a phenomena linked purely to Corbyn either. You could make similar claims about (among others) Richard Littlejohn, Nigel Farage, Richard Dawkins and pretty much any tabloid newspaper.

"Looking for Eric" is really quite upbeat, in the main part. Positive film about how family and friends can help us through bad times.

At 10:45 he talks about how the NHS was chronically underfunded but Junior doctors are not interviewed on the BBC.
