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.

    placate the windowlickers with some red meat but be careful not to mention the truth says:

    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.

    BBC editor says:

    It just happens to be the case that anybody who opposes Harriet Harman’s thought-crime Equality Act is a racist, sexist, white, male, little Englander so obviously we can’t give those right-wing males a platform and we are able to find more people with approved modernised opinion, who understand the difference between good terrorism and bad terrorism and the importance of remaining within the EU and maximising immigration among Guardian readers. What’s your problem?

    Good points and well made in this post. I see no reason why the bbc should be paying for recruitment ads in any newspaper. Why can’t they just advertise them on-line on their own sodding website?

    I have had no instructions from Brussels telling me to scrap the BBC. Just another email telling me to give them £45million by lunchtime. Damn. Where can I get that sort of money? I know, I’ll close a hospital or two. I wonder where I’ll get £45million tomorrow..

    Mark says:

    Er or could it be that for many many years the Grauniad has been the place for hacks and flacks to look for jobs as they cover the media better than the Torygraph or Times. Sort of a market forces thing, you see.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    After his recent pursuit of divers Tory MP’s and apparachiks who allegedly, have been somewhat less than pure, it would be diifficult for all but the most convinced “progressive” to maintain that Guido is a Conservative mouthpiece.

  16. 16
    David says:

    And this is nothing to do witht he fact that the Guardian is the only paper with a dedicated media supplement? Glacing at their websites the following number of jobs are being advertised in media industries:

    Times: 41
    Telegraph: 26
    Guardian: 1021

    It’s hardly just the BBC is it?

    Desperate Dan says:

    This morning an unelected political reporter gave us the BBC’s Manifesto for the Autumn. Apparently they’re going to continue with the Coulson story come what may (regardless of whether or not there is any evidence to back-up their story). Then they’re going to give the LibDems hell at their conference (as a punishment for forming the coalition). And they’re planning to hammer the Tories into the ground if they do anything to cut the national debt.

    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    I’m not sure the BBC can imagine there being any politics outside the narrow band between Blair’s right arm and Cameron’s left arm. And as to understanding that there is such a thing as libertarianism and that it even has a right and left wing…

    PhateonFlanFlinger says:

    Guido, if you are not a Conservative per se.. then according to the BBC you will be:

    “Of the conservative right”
    “Holding views to the right of….”

    The last thing you will be be described as is a libertarian. If the word is used, it will be applied with that distainful raised-eye brows expression that is taught to the vastly overpaid BBC auto-cue monkeys to use as an expression of ridicule.

    Also, if you do get to speak to someone at the BBC could you ask whoever it is that applies Huw Edwards make-up to use a less obvious tone? He looks like one of those overmade up perfume counter clowns on my HD TV. It only makes the delivery of the latest left-wing pronouncement from BBC news even more comical.

    A bit like a counter-culture version of the Black & White Ministrel show.

    wealthy guardian reader says:

    Hear hear, finally we can vote for a tory now he is a labour politician. You peasants need to stop complaining and get back to work to pay your TV tax, it’s not much money really – I spend more on organic guacamole every week than TV tax per year. Stop being so reactionary!

  23. 23
    British Bolshevik Corporation says:

    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.

    Funny how a left-wing American paper is able to recognise the BBC’s clear political position, even if the DG has managed to delude himself that he’s captaining an impartial ship.

    Gordon Bennett! The reason the hacks and flacks flock to the Guardian is because it’s where the BBC chooses to advertise because it thinks it’ll find ‘our kind of people’ there.

    Stephen Poulson says:

    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?

    twatwatchwatch says:

    I was about to say exactly the same thing. Nobody in media reads the Times or Telegraph – so why bother advertising there? That would be a waste of license payers’ money.

    If the BBC wanted to employ fat old ex-colonels with bladder control problems, a racial inferiority complex and an issue with anyone who doesn’t enjoy the homoerotic frottage of a rugby match and then rant on about “poofters” afterwards – then they could advertise in the comments section here. Otherwise, Guardian it is.

    Engineer says:

    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.

    Penfold says:

    Guido, my dear chap, the thrust is in the use of the letter c.
    Are you a big C or a little c.
    The former would be used as a noun or adjective, giving you the descripitive of being a member of the party.
    The latter used as :-
    1. disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.
    2. cautiously moderate or purposefully low: a conservative estimate.
    3. traditional in style or manner; avoiding novelty or showiness: conservative suit.
    1.a person who is conservative in principles, actions, habits, etc.
    2. a supporter of conservative political policies.

    So the response is to ask whether you are being called a big C or a little c.

    Libertarian is all very well, but really, do you take liberties?

    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.

    Engineer says:

    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

    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.

    BBC - a nest of nests says:

    Did you know, the BBC has received more than £200,000 for a ‘Prevent’ project.

    Prevent (Preventing Violent Extremism) is some demented government scheme where £millions of taxpayers money are used for conditioning propaganda, and given as bribes to brownies (who might be inclined to protest against our lovely brave boys in planes dropping fletchette cluster bombs on infant schools in Afghanistan, and other invaded places).

    I understand the BBC used the money to pay the used retarded slapper rag-head, konnie huq, to swan around exposing her self like a £5 proz. The dead-eyed creature was on the BBC non-stop a few months ago, with the subliminal message, “forget politics and human rights – fornicate your troubles away. Self-actualisation can be had at your local doggin site, through DP + felatio with random perverts.”

    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.
