All The Presidents Ben: Brillo Slaughters Bow Group Charlatan

BHQ

Here’s the interview of the day. It was not pretty:

Guido thinks Tarzan spoke for us all when he said: who the hell is this guy?

Biased BBC Website Forgets Biggest Story of the Day

Head over to the controversial BBC Election hub if you DON’T want to read about Ed Miliband and his massively derided stone pledges stunt, that united the nation in laughter at the Labour leader. Not a squeak of it on the front page:

The one time it’s not littered with sympathetic Labour lines, it is conveniently not reporting Labour disasters.

Can they really think that if Ed Miliband screws up and the BBC website don’t cover it prominently, then it did not really happen? 

Michael Gove Slams BBC for #EverydaySexism

Michael Gove was unimpressed this morning when Radio 5 Live’s Rachel Burden had the cheek to assume he agreed with his wife:

“It was interesting to read your wife’s column in the Daily Mail referring to Labour’s position on the North, she says Labour will unite with Sturgeon and take power; the North and then Scotland will leech off us until we die… do you agree with your wife on that one?”

“I’m a feminist and therefore I think that my wife’s views are her views not my views… I’m afraid this is an example of what’s become known as everyday sexism.”

He’s not that (chief) whipped…

HIGHLIGHTS: Miliband Stumbles Exiting Stage Left

After a brutal decking by the Question Time audience, Ed could not get off the stage quick enough:

Oh dear…

This was a hell of a moment:

Apple Pillage the Beeb

apple eat bbc

Not content with poaching star DJ Zane Lowe from BBC Radio 1 in February for their upcoming streaming service, Apple have swooped in again to pinch four producers from the BBC’s youth focused radio station. It’s believed one of the producers leaving Broadcasting House is Kieran Yeates, widely regarded as the brains behind Radio 1’s talent spotting programme.

It seems working for a innovative and well respected company holds more appeal than rotting away in telly-tax funded bureaucratic hell . Techno hears worried BBC execs are calling it the ‘Apple crumble’…

Balanced BBC Forget Half the Election News Today

Head over to the BBC Election hub today and you won’t you won’t see Britain’s best read newspaper backing the Tories as a featured top story, nor the fact an opinion poll from a respected pollster has the Tories leading by five points. Apparently Natalie Bennett talking about climate change is news…

BBC Dodge Hodge Tax Scandal

Guess where you won’t find the Margaret Hodge story? Yep, on the BBC’s controversial election website…

They normally love a good Hodge tax quote. Odd…

1992 Newsnight Deja Vu: Tories Behind in the Polls, Labour Bookies Favourites

Paxman and Bad Al Campbell feature in this heavily as do rudimentary graphics showing Labour winning. Kelner pontificating, Heffer pessimistic, pundits pessimistically shaking their heads at the Tory campaign. Where did it all go wrong is the theme of Paxman on Newsnight.

Hmmmm…

Hat-tip: Ed Stradling for digging out the video.

Biased BBC Election Website At It Again

Here’s the BBC election website at the opening of play this morning. It’s a Labour wet dream:

Labour’s lines and policies feature prominently and are completely unquestioned.

The only mention of the Tories links back to an ancient story about […]

Quote of the Day

Out of the bubble prole Andy Burnham tells Mumsnet

“I’m afraid I’m going to depress you all by saying that I don’t have a sweet tooth and don’t eat biscuits… Give me a beer and chips and gravy any day.”
