    I’m sure we’re all going to hold our breaths waiting for the One Show to run an equally partisan piece against Gordon Brown

    Thing is will it make any difference if the Tories win the next election?

    no for some reason the Tories think Al Beeb is great value for money and does an outstanding job

    maybe they have to say that in oppossition otherwise the leftish propaganda machine that is Al Beeb will launch all out war at the Conservatives

    The One Show is not having a good week. http://www.mirror.co.uk/celebs/news/2010/01/13/ronnie-corbett-gets-apology-from-bbc-after-four-letter-email-outrage-115875-21964249/

    Apologies if it has been done before and for being slightly more to do with arrogance than bias but grist to the mill.

    Got my own apology from the One Show editor afterng lodging a complaint with them as well. Here it is:

    “”I am sorry you felt the film was unfair to the Conservative Party and I would like to start my reply by acknowledging that we should have made clear that the film was one of a number of profiles of the main political parties. In this case the aim was to show it was no longer necessarily the case that voters felt a politician’s public school education or privileged background was a reason not to vote for them.  The views of potential voters were evenly balanced on this point in the film and we highlighted the fact that Labour’s “toff” attacks on the Conservative candidate at the Crewe and Nantwich bye-election had not worked.  The film also highlighted Tony Blair’s attendance at a public school termed “the Eton of the North” by one contributor.  However I do accept that, overall, the reporting style and tone of the film may have under-played these points and led some to the impression of unfairness to the Conservative Party.  The One Show production team is very aware of its responsibilities to ensure fairness in our output and I apologise that, on this occasion, the film did not fully do justice to that aim”.

    If you’re pissed off by the BBC’s biased coverage then please make sure you lodge a complaint. If nothing else, it will make the buggers work a bit harder for their money.
