Man renowned for his truthfulness, honesty, integrity and unbiased even-handedness has fair and unbiased comments to make about the BBC.

A week in the life of Today that has made me despair of BBC bias: Flagship news show offers only a Left-wing progressive take on everything from Brexit to statue toppling and the NHS, writes STEPHEN GLOVER

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/arti ... LOVER.html
Today, which goes out every morning for three hours Monday to Friday, and for two hours on Saturday, is Auntie’s most important news and current affairs show on radio or television. It attracts around seven million listeners every week, more even than The Archers. What the town crier was to our medieval ancestors, Today is to our modern nation.

Only, it is not always even-handed. In the early days of this administration, ministers avoided appearing on Today because they feared being monstered if they did. But it is too influential a platform to ignore. So they now dutifully troop along — and are not infrequently monstered all the same.
Waah. They're not blowing smoke up our arses.

This week, as the NHS battles with Omicron, and the Government’s critics call for tougher measures, I have listened to Today with more than the usual care and attention. What a depressing — and sometimes infuriating — experience it has been!

Not just on Covid, but with several other key stories as well, Today has displayed breathtaking bias. Again and again, one side of an argument — the progressive or Leftist or anti-Government side — is presented without the other point of view.
Probably because the "other point of view" consists of lies and patent bullshit.

He then goes on to spout utter shite about the following subjects:
NHS IN CRITICAL CONDITION
Any fule kno all is tickety-boo in the NHS so evil lefties should stop saying it isn't.

FAVOURITISM FOR HARD-LINE EXPERTS
God! Haven't we had enough of those bastards?

DISTASTE FOR BORIS JOHNSON
This is inexplicable. Who, other than evil Britain-hating lefties, would feel anything other than unconditional love for this fine, upstanding, hard-working self-sacrificing workaholic who has nothing more than your best interests at heart?



What a load of bollocks.

At the risk of being a victim blamer.

If you (Jenrick, Baker, Patel, Francois - I could go on) don't wish to get called out for misdeeds.
Try not doing the misdeeds.

Surely the BBC gives de Piffle a platform when we have PM broadcast to the nation, and we all know how coherent and informative they are, don’t we Steve

A few years ago, Glover was one a Radio 4 review of the year. The discussion touched on Katie Hopkins' "cockroaches" comments. Exchange went as follows (roughly):
Glover - Well, her comments were disgusting, beyond the pale. The Sun were quite right to sack her.

R4 presenter - And then she was hired by the Mail.

Glover - Ah. Yes...
