BBC Journalist Calls Government “New Nazis”

When Boris criticised the BBC’s impartiality in his conference speech the Beeb’s panjandrums mumbled about how everyone complaining means they must be doing something right. Crazy Corbynistas claiming Auntie props up neo-liberal patriarchy is not quite the same as most fair-minded people recognising that on issues such as immigration and Brexit she is out of tune with mainstream Britain. Don’t take Guido’s word for it, listen to former director-general Mark Thompson, in a Media Masters interview last week he said: “journalists as a group tend in their personal politics towards the Left.” That it would help “to have Conservatives, people who tend to think from a perspective that goes with the Right rather than the Left, across your newsroom.”

The BBC has guidelines about journalists mouthing off their left-wing views on Twitter, guidelines ignored by Danny Carpenter of BBC Look North, who has rip on Facebook about the government in a comment on a post by Caroline Lucas of the Green Party:

“Hear hear! Now let’s see the Labour Party grow some proper balls and unite in the lobbies to vote out every cynical, vicious, racist and xenophobic piece of legislation these new Nazis propose and let’s start by demanding a commons debate on Brexit and voting out this utterly undemocratic and non-legally binding referendum result which was achieved by a combination of dishonest fearmongering and lies about the economy”

A view no doubt shared widely in BBC newsrooms…

“By 2012, the number of Brits with more or less active Twitter accounts had overtaken the number of people who regularly bought a newspaper.”
