WEEKEND OPEN THREAD…

I see the BBC are delighted at Obama’s roll-over to Cuba. I caught an interview this morning on the Today programme with a Labour MP who enjoyed a travelling to Cuba to have a chinwag with ol’ Fidel and who was able to inform us that the REAL cause of Cuba’s woes was….yes, America. The BBC never changes — sighs. A new thread for you!

AL SWEADY

BBC limbering up for a new bout of blackening the reputation of the British military today, ahead of the publication of the Al Sweady Inquiry report. I heard a BBC journalist intone this morning that on some occasions Iraqi combatants were…..gasp…SHOUTED at. Oh the horror. When you combine this with the BBC’s embrace of the partisan Democrat Senate report on the CIA, we see the remarkable sight of the State broadcaster damning OUR armed forces whilst the enemy slaughter at will around the world. It’s my view that had the BBC been as pervasive in WW2 as it is now, we could not have won the war because we had to actually FIGHT back. In this refined times that is not possible and the BBC ensures this is the case by pushing the £30m absurdity of this report, in my view.

START THE WEEK OPEN THREAD

Here you go, a new Open Thread. I see the BBC are virtually orgasmic about the latest UKIP “revelation” and I heard them discussing on the Today programme whether there was a core UKIP support that is indeed homophobic and racist. Plus ca change. Meanwhile, BBC doing all they can to suggest that a devout Muslim has been taken hostage by coffee extremists in Sydney! The floor is yours…

WEEKEND OPEN THREAD….

Here you go, a new Open Thread for you to complete. The BBC has been quite hysterical in recent days, wallowing in the Senate Democrat attack on the CIA, trying to suggest that Miliband’s woeful speech on the economy could represent a leap forward for the glorious leader in waiting…..and the rest. The floor is yours.

WHY LISTENING TO THE BBC IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH

In the past few days, I caught a couple of BBC stories which did little for my blood pressure.

On BBC NI, they ran an item explaining the the “traveller” community was the most discriminated against in Northern Ireland. This was based in feedback from..the travelling community! Honestly, you couldn’t make it up although I suspect the Travellers do.

I then heard another story elsewhere on the BBC network explaining that the Arts Council was DEMANDING that those who it sponsors (with taxpayers money) MUST ensure more racial “diversity” or else funding will be cut. This was portrayed as a “good thing” with no contrary opinion expressed. It appears quality comes second to diversity and the pursuance of inverted racism.

Watching the BBC is not good for your spirit or your health!

OPEN THREAD

Here we go, an overdue Open Thread! BBC went into food bank frenzy yesterday. I was invited into the BBC NI studio to take part in a discussion on such. My view is that Food Banks are street theatre agitprop sponsored by the left. To my amusement, the BBC in Belfast put on a caller from Cheltenham (!) who gave a tale of woe and explained how Food Banks saved his life. The particularity becomes the generality in the eyes of the BBC, as they do everything possible to help Labour. With an improving economy and falling unemployment the Left need SOMETHING to keep the gospel of despair going so welcome to the great Food Bank meme.

PAXMAN TO KNOCK STUFFING OUT OF BBC?

I was on BBC5 live last evening doing the Paper reviews and this story came up.

Jeremy Paxman, the broadcaster, will tell of his decades-long career at the BBC as part of a three-book deal for almost £1 million, it has been claimed. The former Newsnight presenter will not pull any punches in his recollections of an illustrious 42-year career at the broadcasting corporation, the Sunday Times said. The second of the three books he will produce with publisher William Collins will tell of his time at the BBC, the paper said, including his experiences of the politicians he interviewed.

My view is that Paxman is entitled to make as much loot as possible from his memoirs and I am sure he will lift more than few rocks so we can see what crawled underneath. The problem is that it took him to LEAVE the Corporation to spill the beans. Can I also add I think he is overrated?

WHY DOES IT (NOT) ALWAYS RAIN ON ME…?

A Biased BBC reader brings this example of a BBC programme faking weather for climate change inspired program!

“Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond swapped steering wheels for wet weather gear when filming his latest TV series. The star of Total Wipeout and Richard Hammond’s Blast Lab is hosting a new three part BBC1 series entitled Wild Weather with Richard Hammond – and naturally motored up to Cumbria for an episode on water. But they had to make their own rain when they got here. He and the crew filmed at Honister Slate Mine as they explored the force and effect water has on our weather and our land.”

My aching sides…
