BBC Trust Grilled Over Deaf Tory Smear

Where was BBC trustee Richard Ayre when Guido’s story about the Beeb smear of Alec Shelbrooke broke? Waxing lyrical at the DCMS committee about how Auntie “operates to higher standards than other broadcasters” and that “the trust requires accuracy” online. Unfortunately for him Tory MP Jason McCartney had clearly been checking Twitter:

“It’s a slam dunk case.”

Please, tell us more about your “higher standards”…

Moment BBC Cameraman Floored

Uh oh:

BBC Smear of Deaf Tory MP Goes Viral

The BBC and the rest of the lefty Twitter echo chamber are gleefully sending this picture of Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke viral. The nation’s broadcaster reckons he was asleep during last night’s debate on the Trade Union Bill:

The picture has been retweeted hundreds of times already. Just one problem: he was not asleep. That little thing you can see next to his ear is a speaker. Shelbrooke needed it to hear because he is partially deaf. He tells Guido:

“I am genuinely slightly deaf and struggle to hear. I had taken part in the debate and was trying to hear the wind ups. Seems a shame I get trolled due to being slightly deaf.”

Will the BBC apologise?

UPDATE: The Labour press team also shared the smear:

UPDATE II: This new picture from ITV’s Paul Brand proves Shelbrooke was awake:

UPDATE III: The Beeb offer their “heartfelt apologies”:

Diane Abbott made around £20,000-a-year from her BBC appearance fees, fees that her frontbench role will cost her in lost earnings. BBC sources confirm that she will no longer appear on This Week. A decision on a Labour replacement will be made soon. Plenty of bitter, Blairite ex-frontbenchers available now. Suggestions in the comments for runners and riders… 

Another Sexist Socialist: Skinner Mansplains to Emily Maitlis

Even Owen Jones is criticising Jeremy Corbyn over his failure to give top jobs to women. So it hasn’t helped Labour’s new women problem that Corbyn supporter Dennis Skinner and fellow bro-cialist lost it with Emily Maitlis on the BBC this lunchtime:

DS: “You’re spinning already. That was an example of spinning. Because you were trying to imply that I turned it down.”

EM: “No that was a joke. That was a joke.”

DS: “I think it’s time that you got real, and you understood that you’re not working for Murdoch at the BBC, because you seem to be following the same pattern.”

Everyday socialist sexism…

Team Corbyn Blast BBC “Character Assassination”

Last night’s particularly punchy Panorama special asked if Corbyn believed Iraqis had the right to kill British troops:

Corbyn refuses to answer the question…

It wasn’t just tin-foil hat wearing Corbynista trolls crying establishment stitch up. His top team are furious:

Look forward to the Panorama specials on Yvette Cooper’s links to Brownite thugs and Liz Kendall’s Progress shame… or not…

MPs Swamped By BBC Lobbying Effort

Surely the BBC would not be so silly as to orchestrate an attempted mass lobbying effort of MPs ahead of the coming battle for its future? This identical email has been sent to a number of MPs from a number of constituents today:

BBC World News has systematically been accepting ready made green propaganda programmes that were given to them for free or for negligible cost. They then ran the content as current affairs programming without telling their audience.

BBC Uses ECHR to Block Release of Spin Bill

Last month the BBC produced a cinematic advert to “celebrate the unique role that the BBC plays in all of our lives”. Taking advantage of their massive media monopoly to beam Auntie’s spin into the nation’s front rooms, ahead of the coming battle for its future…

Ever the optimist, Guido fired off a Freedom of Information request to the notoriously opaque Beeb, asking how much licence fee payers stumped up for the very expensive looking advert.[…]
