A WONDERFUL MAN

As we approach the end of the US Presidential campaign, Justine Webb becomes ever more outrageous in his shilling for Obama. This time round he manages to firstly quote from the far left blog The Huffington Post (again) and then he digs up a comment from John McCain back in 1999 praising Colin Powell. Apparently the defection of RINO Colin Powell to the Obama camp was ” a psychological blow” … Continue reading

THE KILLING OF GEORGIE.

You have to hand it to the BBC, they sure know how to keep a story going. This morning sees the Osbourne non-story once more hoisted right up to the top of the news agenda. More tit for tat allegations and the BBC positively beaming with delight at the opportunity to smear the Tories. My critics here suggest that I am showing bias myself by attacking the BBC over this … Continue reading

“MR OSBOURNE, WHEN DID YOU STOP BEATING YOUR WIFE?

“ Hi All, been away all day so just catching up now! Well, what about poor Georgie Porgie and that “conversation” with that Russian billionaire? A few points strike me.1. Osbourne has been foolish in the extreme and has left himself – and his party -open to the smears of sleaze now being generously applied. For that he deserves no pity.2. The BBC coverage has been exultant, almost hysterical. The … Continue reading

Not even trying

Is the loathing of Bush’s Republicans so firmly established in the minds of all right thinking people that the BBC, as with global warming, has abandoned even the pretence of impartiality? Here’s Peter Marshall’s Newsnight blog following in the steps of Justin Webband the rest in this review of Oliver Stone’s film ‘W': Indeed Stone’s Bush is remarkably similar to the “hollow man” I identified in the 1999 election campaign, … Continue reading

OPPORTUNISM?

I am sure you will have read about the brutal murder of Christian charity worker Gayle Williams by the Taliban near Kabul in Afghanistan. Her killers, those intrepid followers of the religion of peace, plainly state that they shot this defenceless lady because she was a Christian and that she was trying to convert people. The BBC was quick to declare that this was most likely NOT the case and … Continue reading

“FLEXIBLE WORKING”?

Caught the truly appalling Patricia Hewitt being interviewed by Eddie Mair on PM. This was concerning Peter Mandelson’s suggestion that the legislation bringing about a mandatory requirement for employers to accommodate flexible working hours for all employees with children under 16 be knocked on the head, for a while. The BBC was keen to offer Hewitt this soap-box from which she could witter on about how essential for small business … Continue reading

MARXISM IS BACK.

I see the BBC reports that Marxism is resurgent in Germany. (I suppose that makes a change from certain other toxic ideologies that Germans have also been attracted in the past…) You can sense Beeb hearts swelling with pride when they repeat that “Globalisation, which is implicit in capitalism, not only destroys the heritage and tradition but it is incredibly unstable, it operates through a series of crises, and I … Continue reading

Brought to book

To be honest, I don’t think the the BBC should be publishing opinion pieces, but since it does, do they all have to be so crashingly predictable? Here’s the review they’ve decided to run on the Jewel of Medina, the fictional account of Muhammad’s child bride that’s caused a stir. Based on your knowledge of the BBC see if you can guess whether it’s supportive before clicking through. If the … Continue reading

EVERYBODY LOVES OBAMA

I see the BBC lead story is that hip hop and rap fan Colin Powell has endorsed The One. Quelle surprise! Now whilst I accept this is news to those who do not follow these matters closely, I wonder why Justin Webb gets the opportunity in the same item to eulogise as to how “re-assuring” this endorsement will be for “many” American voters. Webb also uses it to further attack … Continue reading

JOE THE PLUMBER

Fascinating to read this example of character assassination the BBC runs on Joe Wurzelbacher aka “Joe the Plumber”. The way this US election has turned out, the BBC has become a partisan propagandist for Democrat talking points. At every point away, it has chosen to run the Democrat perspective on every issue and when an unscheduled item such as Joe the Plumber breaks through the MSM filter – and challenges … Continue reading

OBAMA OR DOOM.

I see that Simon Schama, he who the BBC is using to present “The American Future” series is of the opinion that America has to choose Obama – or certain doom. Clearly no hint of bias there. Click through to read and contribute comments on this post.

Toa Kitu Kidogo + Icon Management ( BBC PrObamaganda roundup)

For those non-Swahilli speakers who visit this site (there must be at least a few), the first part of the title above means “give a little something”- and is a common expression in Kenya, used in particular when a policeman wants a little bribe. Well, I should imagine the inhabitants of Kisumu, West Kenya, could be using the expression once the One has won as is clearly the wont of … Continue reading

HANGING AROUND

. I see that the BBC are hailing the news that Iran has decided to stop executing juveniles. Amnesty have also been welcoming of the Mullahs alleged decision. I suppose with all the hanging of homosexuals and stoning to death of adulterers the Iranian judiciary may be too busy to hang the kids. Not that you’d know the latter from the BBC report. Great to see the enthusiasm to give … Continue reading
