“Biased BBC is curiously misnamed. It's only interested...”

Written on: 20/01/2008 by nebneb (1 review written)

Biased BBC is curiously misnamed. It's only interested in forcing a hard right agenda on the BBC and consequently the moderators and commenters tend to see left wing bias everywhere.

It's not uncommon to see posters blame the BBC for all manner or ills in the world and to see the BBC as a communal meeting place for nefarious left wing types plotting world domination, the installation of a 21st century caliphate and the annihilation of Israel.

And then there's the BNP contingent among the commenters that seem to ebb and flow in. It's always amusing to see the hasbara types find common ground with the commenters who see the reporter being marginalised and the BBC failing to face up to the plain facts: especially the Islamic ones.

Quite apart from that, moderators and posters alike have such limited understanding of the journalistic process that some of the example of "bias" they find are so laughable it always makes me wonder how they return the next day to declare that the BBC has no idea about journalism compared to their obvious expertise.

The best things you can say are that it gives the commenters, many of whom are, if not unemployed then clearly have a lot of time on their hands, something to do.
