The FA Cup coverage wasn't in the least bit biased. I my opinion it was balanced. They showed the flare on the pitch. Referenced it, showed the pitch invasion, and showed the stewarding.

I don't work for, or have anyone who works for the Beeb who's a relative.
I don't buy into the biased Beeb narrative. Never have.

I think it's the same as the Beeb's supposed left-wing bias, i.e. it's there in certain people and departments, but not in others.

The BBC is a bloody huge organisation and inevitably every part of it ends up getting tarred with the same brush.


Just recovering from shock at that comment, Lt Dan ! Sitting down with a stiff drink, recovering. I thought to work for the BBC you had to be a paid-up member of Momentum, and to have signed the "Politically Correct Magna Carta" ?

The Beeb is chock-a-bloc full of Oxbridge alumni. So, plenty of dear old lefties. And plenty of Jacob Rees-Mogg-alikes. So any bias, conscious or unconscious, is likely to vary in political stripe from programme to programme, department to department. Just as Dan states.

From a news perspective, study after study has revealed a consistent right wing bias. It’s s big old place though, so there will be other areas where that’s not true, or where there is a left wing bias.

I've always thought that the BBC is neither left or right, but a classic liberal establishment.

I think the BBC is neither effective as a left or right winger, but has shown potential in a false number nine role just behind Sow

But we're the studies conducted by left wing bias researchers?

No, Hitler did them. Rigourously.
