Even The President Is Trapped In Nasty Uncle Rupert’s Grasp

Here’s one for you:

Report: Obama top recipient of News Corp. donations

Political donations by News Corp., its employees and their families were evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, with President Obama the all-time leading recipient, according to a report from the Sunlight Foundation.
The transparency watchdog noted Tuesday that Democrats received 51 percent of contributions while Republicans received 49 percent, despite the firm’s highly publicized links to the GOP, such as a $1 million donation to the Republican Governors Association in August.

I say nobody should vote to re-elect the President until He returns all the money from this criminal organization.

    In the United States too, – more recognition of the political bias of BBC-NUJ:

    from ‘National Review’:-

    Competition in the Media? Start with the BBC

    [Extract]:

    “…the comparison of News International and the BBC — obviously employed in an attempt to appease the Left and Right and, in doing so, make himself appear above the fray — is a nonsense. The prime minister is comparing apples and oranges. Let us forget politics for a moment and focus on the facts: News International is a private company which grew on its own merits, selling newspapers, television, and new media in a free market by providing what people wanted. Its political bent and whether or not the editorial line happens to be to an individual’s taste is irrelevant to this fact. The BBC, on the other hand, is a government-instituted former monopoly, which forces everyone who owns a television to pay for it whether they use it or not, and collects an additional £293 million annually from government grants. The BBC is the largest media organisation in the world, with a budget of almost £5bn, almost four-fifths of which comes from British taxpayers.”

    I was going to post about this earlier, Richard Bacon called Daniel Hannan a ‘hardline’ politician today, Hannan was not happy, seem to remember Dame nikki Campbell calling Guido Fakes a facist and having to say sorry as well.

    And still people don’t think there is a collective leftism at the BBC.

      Well done, Hannan, for standing up to them for a change.  Since he got such a quick apology, it makes one wonder how different things would be if everyone who got the same biased intros had spoken out like this.  The fact that this is such a rare occurence does show just how powerful the BBC is, and how much so many people are in thrall psychologically to its legacy.

      But I think Hannan is seriously wrong when he suggests that the BBC can be more easily reformed because the bias is reflexive and accidental.  If they’re not even aware that they’re doing it, it’s going to be that much harder to convince them that they are.

      The number one rule of self-improvement and reform is that acknowledging there’s a problem is the first step towards recovery.  Maybe a few people who have to deal with the complaints are aware (e.g. the boss who sent that note to Hannan), but the people who need to be reformed sure don’t think there’s a problem.

        Having been once too often stymied by the ‘complaints’ process, i wrote to my MP.

        Got a note saying he was looking into it.

        His researcher eventually sends a sniffy note saying this was all best addressed by… BBC complaints.

        The one that kicks off by saying they may, or may not reply.

        But if you persevere, you may end up with Ms. Boaden’s email to nowhere.

        Is the BBC as key as defence, education, health etc, to sway my voting intention? Well… possibly. Because the BBC, as a monopoly public propaganda medium, has such vast infuence to sway decisions on these very topics.

        MPs and PMs come and go on their records. The BBC is like Herpes.

    Wasn`t Richard Bacon the druggie who got kicked off Blue Peter?
    If so, think it`s safe to say what the BBC tends to prefer in its “presenters”…we`re surely due a drugs bust there at TV Centre soon!

    Hope that Rupert bills our political class for every glass of wine and every Bombay(or is that Mumbai now!) mix that they have leeched off the great Crocodile Dundee of the Media!
    Then I hope that he shuts down the whole of his UK operation and throws the NUJ and Labour party into meltdown…before re-opening Fox/BSkyB with a better class of reporter.
    Imagine…no Parris, Aaronovitch,Self…but lots of Hannans, Delingpoles and Murrays, Phillips and Hitchens(P)
    We might start to get as country worth living in then!
