Proof the BBC is the Guardianista’s Broadcasting Arm

Guido has reflected on the shared culture and worldview of the Guardian and the BBC in the past;

The BBC is viewed by many right-wingers as the broadcasting arm of the Guardianistas. The Beeboids argue that this is unfair, and that the BBC is an unbiased, objective, public service broadcaster.

Yesterday the regular Guardian contributor Tim Montgomerie described the BBC as Guardian TV. Is this the ranting of right-wing blow-hards? No. The evidence is clear, via the excellent Biased BBC blog we learn thatguardian-logo the BBC deliberately focuses recruitment advertising on the ranks of the Guardianistas.

Look at how it allocates the spending of hundreds of thousands of pounds on recruitment advertising:

When the BBC spends 86% of its recruitment advertising budget in the Guardian, we’re entitled to question the objectivity of the BBC’s editorial culture…

N.B. On a personal note, could BBC interviewers stop mistakenly introducing Guido as a “conservative”, if they do Guido will thank them for allowing him to appear on the left-wing BBC – as Nicky Campbell will tell you. Guido is a libertarian, not a conservative.

      Mr Cameron stressed that he supported the BBC

      He said: “The BBC is an important national institution. I want to see it prosper and succeed and be a fantastic cultural asset.”

      He added that he was a “supporter of the licence fee”

      Jeremy Hunt Conservative MP, Culture Secretary

      “I believe that the BBC is a great national institution.”

      “I am proud of the BBC. I think that most British people think that we are very lucky to have a BBC and most people who aren’t British, if they don’t have a BBC, wish they did have one.”

      “I don’t see the BBC as a State broadcaster. “I think people see the BBC as operating at arms length from the government and it’s very important that it should continue to do so and that’s why we’ve said we will protect the BBC charter.”

      Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has defended the BBC, saying it’s “unique in the world and we should be proud of it” and said the trend for politicians to constantly attack it was wrong.

          As we all know the BBC was exceptionally bias before the election towards Liebour, and creeping Thompson has recently visited No 10 to try to mitigate this and his future. Scrap the licence fee because it is an imposed tax. The BBC has gone way beyond its remit as a public broadcaster and it should now be funded comercially then it can give any bias its wants but NOT at the public’s expense. It might be a test for those highly paid executives who all claim their salaries are commercially weighted, they could test their comments for real. Who would employ them at their current salary rates? Thompson worth £800k+ my ass. Remember the recent £100 million pound over spend where no one was held to account, they learnt lessons from it- at our expense. Proud of what- incompetence, bias news reporting, poor programmes, repeats etc. They try to compare the cost of the licence fee with Sky, they forget we do not get a choice, people who watch Sky do so at their own free will and leisure. We have to pay whether we watch the BBC or not. Scrap the licence fee.

            Don’t be upset when called a ‘reactionary’.

            I was taught by my father to be one.

            He did this by allowing me to stay up late to watch the speeches of Martin Luther King.

            By sending me to a good catholic school were I was taught Christian values like : compassion, concern, consideration, co-operation.

            All very helpful in my time in the Royal Navy (Fighting fire, flood and flirting with death ).

            Doing God’s work were politics failed on behalf of HM the Queen, the British people and the commonwealth.

            Now every time I come across an injustice, corruption or other unpleasantness I react in a very robust manner.

            I am a reactionary, like Christ, King, Wilberforce and Crazy Horse.

    Interesting to see how the NYT described the Coulson situation in terms of media coverage:


    The publication of the Times Magazine article has starkly exposed the fault lines in the media and political landscape in Britain. Papers supporting the government — including The Times of London and The Sun, both Murdoch-owned — have devoted little space to the new accusations. But media outlets critical of the government, including The Guardian, The Independent and the BBC — which itself is in a bitter feud with Mr. Murdoch’s company, which has extensive television holdings in Britain — have covered The Times’s article, and the subsequent calls for new investigations, extensively.

    Great work on the Hague story but think you’re barking up the wrong tree on this one.
    The BBC advertises in The Guardian because The Guardian has an excellent media section. If you’re looking for a job in TV, you buy The Guardian (or look on their website and other websites) because that’s where jobs are advertised.
    Now the BBC could spend your money advertising in The Sun, but I’m pretty sure you’d then start complaining about the BBC wasting taxpayers money.
    Anyway, when are you going to start complaining about 95% of newspapers backing the Tories?

      Exactly. the Guardian has an effective monopoly of media jobs and can charge what it likes to it’s clients. When the Guardian supports an administration, the risk of a government effectively subsidising a newspaper by accepting high charges for advertising is clearly unacceptable. The answer is for public service jobs to be advertised on the government website or in the case of the BBC on it’s own website, and for lowergrade jobs, through the job centres.

    The BBC has an extensive website. The criticism of its policy of advertising predominantly in the Grauniad could easily be solved by adding a Vacancies section to the website. Placing adverts in all the major papers directing interested applicants to the website would ensure that everybody knew where to look. That would completely remove the appearance of political bias.

    This shouldn’t exclude many possible candidates since the media industries make extensive use of fast communication technologies, and internet familiarity would presumably be a requirement of most, if not all, BBC posts.

    2. cautiously moderate or purposefully low: a conservative estimate.

    I think the BBC do have a problem with an internal culture that leans in the arty-lefty direction, and it knows it. Some in the BBC actively support that leaning, perhaps because it accords with their own beliefs, whilst others recognise that the perception of bias is damaging to the BBC’s credibility. Mark Thompson’s statement rather reflected that, but admitting the problem is one thing, solving it is another.

    I listened to Roger Harrabin’s programme “Uncertain Climate” yesterday. For the first time that I can recall on the BBC, the programme set out to report some of the complexities in the science behind the climate debate, and within the limits of available time, did a pretty fair job. However, Harrabin made an interesting statement before he embarked on this – that his editor did not wish him to do so.

    Perhaps that’s part of the problem. I don’t know whether his editor did not wish the facts broadcast, or whether his editor thought that the listening public can’t cope with complexity and uncertainty, but that editor was dead wrong. We want the facts, reported honestly and as accurately as possible. If they happen to be complex and uncertain, so be it.

    BBC editors – don’t treat the listening public as fools. We don’t appreciate it.

    For those old enough to remember…during the Thatcher/Major Years the BBC operated as the unofficial Opposition and then after 1997 as the unofficial Government Cheerleader and Propaganda Arm. During the middle/autumn of 2009 their strategists realised that Labour had no chance of winning the next election with Brown as leader unless they could start bombarding the public with the view that a “Hung Parliament” was good and a Tory overall majority bad. They apparently achieved their aim as immediately for 5 days after the 5 May 2010 they actively encouraged talk of Labour going into coalition with the LibDems allowing Labour politicians and left leaning LibDem politicians virtually a free hand to trumpet this to the watching public. Then when that wheeze bore nothing they switched to becoming the “Unofficial Oppostion” again until such time as Labour could re-constitute itself and started attacking the coalition for cuts etc conveniently not mentioning that the need for cuts was created by Labour’s gross mis-management of the UK Economy
