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

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.Waah. They're not blowing smoke up our arses.
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.
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!Probably because the "other point of view" consists of lies and patent bullshit.
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.
He then goes on to spout utter shite about the following subjects:
NHS IN CRITICAL CONDITIONAny fule kno all is tickety-boo in the NHS so evil lefties should stop saying it isn't.
FAVOURITISM FOR HARD-LINE EXPERTSGod! Haven't we had enough of those bastards?
DISTASTE FOR BORIS JOHNSONThis 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.
