BBC Issues 2 Apologies in 2 Days Over Extremist Group’s Slurs

On Tuesday, the BBC was forced to issue an on air apology after Masoud Shadjareh, the head of the Khomeinist IHRC group, called Quilliam’s counter-extremism campaigner Maajid Nawaz a “hate preacher” in an interview:

Today the BBC has had to give another apology for Shadjareh describing Spectator journalist Douglas Murray in the same terms:

Almost as if the IHRC are a bunch of Khomeinist wrong ‘uns who peddle anti-Semitic bigotry and untruths about their critics. Their director is facing a police probe over alleged hate crimes at the pro-Hezbollah rally last weekend. Why do the BBC keep giving them a platform?

Prezza’s Boris BBC Bias Bunkum

Here is John Prescott complaining that the BBC has not covered Boris Johnson’s car crash interview conducted by the BBC’s Eddie Mair on BBC Radio 4. You can listen to Boris’ Diane Abbott moment, courtesy of the BBC, below. It is the third-most watched clip on the BBC website this morning.

Cripes…

BBC’s Simon McCoy Laughs at Robo-Mak

Tory MP Alan Mak did his best Theresa May impression on the BBC earlier, causing an exasperated Simon McCoy to laugh out loud. Ambitious Alan’s appearance has had colleagues joking about a leadership bid. Mak Britain Great Again?

BBC Presenter Breaks Impartiality Rules on Polling Day

A BBC presenter has broken impartiality guidelines by bashing The Sun, the Daily Mail and the Express on election day.

Shaun Keaveny, who presents the breakfast show on Radio 6 Music, said he had “much respect” for someone who had tweeted a picture of multiple copies of the newspapers that they had bought to burn.

Keaveny then tweeted: “The age-old advice never fails. Do NOT EVER stare directly into the Sun. Or the Mail or Express for that matter.”

The BBC’s official guidelines state that it is not “appropriate for [BBC presenters] to present or write personal view programmes and content…on ‘controversial subjects’ in any area.”

Guido thinks Keaveny’s Twitter bio sums him up rather well: “A parasitic tick in the ear of the BBC”.

Every BBC presenter is impartial…some are just more impartial than others, right?

BBC’s Jon Sopel Tweets Fake News

Oops! The BBC’s Jon Sopel falls for an obvious photoshop. This is the real image:

Diane Pulls Out of Woman’s Hour

Diane unwell apparently. Unfit certainly…

UPDATE: Oxford Circus is the nearest tube station to Broadcasting House. This is 20 minutes before she was supposed to be on air. Pulled at the last moment?

ComRes Insists BBC Audience Wasn’t Biased

Andrew Hawkins from ComRes insists his BBC audience last night was “scrupulously put together, selected and verified” and that right-leaning audience members are just not as vocal as lefties. Certainly true that Labour rabble’s are more likely to scream and boo, just ask Laura K…

BBC News at Ten Promotes Fake News Site Skwawkbox

The BBC has taken the inexplicable decision of promoting fake news site Skwawkbox on the News at Ten. Skwawkbox is not simply a left-wing or Corbynista news site. It deliberately peddles knowing untruths with the aim of going viral and misleading its audience – it is the definition of fake news. The BBC gave Skwawkbox’s lone author anonymity – Guido can tell you he is a far-left conspiracy theorist called Steve Walker. What on earth is the BBC’s media editor Amol Rajan thinking giving this nutter the platform of the News at Ten?

BBC Mocked Over ‘Most Left-Wing Audience Ever’

Journalists from Labour-supporting publications admitting the BBC audience was laughably biased towards Labour tonight. CCHQ going to be very unimpressed…

Another Corbynista Slips Though BBC Net

A few weeks back Guido told you how a prolific Corbynista was being used as a supposedly non-partisan NHS talking head on the BBC News Channel. Jezza’s fans are certainly having some success at slipping through the BBC producers’ net. The BBC News website has now run a story based on criticism of the Tory grammar schools policy by a Dr Alice Sullivan of the UCL Institute of Education. Sullivan is described by the Beeb as a “professor of sociology at University College London”. What they don’t mention is that she is also a massive Corbyn supporter who regularly promotes pro-Jez material on her Facebook page (which has now been taken down). Just last week she urged people to vote Labour “if not for yourself or your family… for the foxes“. She even signed a petition to get Jez on the leadership ballot…

Seems to be happening a lot…

Brillo Hammers May on Honesty

Via @liarpoliticians

The social care section of the Andrew Neil interview tonight was bruising for Theresa May. Brillo hammered her again and again on her lack of honesty. The strategy of u-turning and pretending “nothing has changed” isn’t working – it looks hugely dishonest and the Tories get no credit for ditching an unpopular policy. 

She didn’t fare much better on cash for the NHS, Brillo asked her three times where the new money is coming from and didn’t get an answer:

Pretty bad on immigration too:

May refused to give answers on what the social care cap will be, where the NHS money comes, whether she would rule out an NI rise, how many would lose their winter fuel allowance, what she thinks the consequences are of a no deal Brexit, and how long she plans to stay as PM. No positives for the Tories at all, except Corbyn has to face Brillo on Friday…

Academic Study: Broadcasters Were Biased Towards Remain

An academic study by a team of media studies professors* found that the Tory press is biased against Corbyn and the Labour supporting press is more favourable to Jezza. Taxpayers once again wasting money in academic studies of the bloody obvious. Well at least it keeps the hackademics off the streets…

They also found that the supposedly impartial broadcasters – the likes of Faisal and Peston – did give more airtime to pro-Remain voices during the referendum. Guido could have told them that for free…

Barry Gardiner Becomes Corbyn’s Media Basher-in-Chief

The usually cheery and mild-mannered Barry Gardiner has had something of a personality transplant over the last few weeks. First he lost it with Adam Boulton and accused him of pro-Tory bias. Then he accused the BBC’s Eleanor Garnier of being “fake news”. Last night on Newsnight he spent most of his ten minute interview moaning at Emily Maitlis’ coverage, calling her “silly“. This morning he had a bust-up with Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shepherd. And now he has had another whinge at Nick Robinson on the Today programme, claiming reading out the Sun’s headline is beneath him. This is a deliberate strategy by the Corbynistas to trigger their fanbase…

Barry Gardiner Claims BBC Reporter is “Fake News” Because She’s Related to Tory MPs

Top Corbynista Barry Gardiner has impugned the integrity of a highly-respected BBC journalist, claiming she is “fake news” and “compliant” because she is related to two Tory MPs. Gardiner, one of Labour’s top media spokesmen, tweeted a link to a conspiracy theory blog which noted that BBC reporter Eleanor Garnier is a relative of Tories Mark and Edward and accused her of “bias“. Gardiner commented:

Trump playbook on steroids. Barry is supposed to be one of the less mental Corbynistas…

UPDATE: BBC hit back at Gardiner: “All our political reporters are impartial.”

Corbyn Refuses 7 Times to Rule Out Keeping Britain in EU
