Some would have it that the caricature of BBC news editors as Thatcher-hating, Green-loving, Tory-bashing, anti-Israeli types is just that, a ridiculous caricature of over-the-top nonsense only existing in the minds of paranoid Telegraph readers. Is it really paranoia?
Yet it is fascinatingly revealing to see how BBC luvvies talk candidly amongst themselves on Twitter, exhibiting uniformly left-wing group-think straight out of the pages of the Guardian.
The Biased-BBC blog highlights Rachel Kennedy, a ‘strand editor’, responsible for sections of the rolling news programme on the BBC News Channel. According to her Twitter feed George Osborne is going to “knacker” the economy and “ruin lives”, she loves the Green Party’s Caroline Lucas etc.
