BBC NEWS PRODUCER REGRETS MISSING LEFTY RALLY

Jane Bradley, producer at BBC London TV News, tweeting yesterday:

She’s your typical Guardian-reading BBC lefty, but don’t just take my word for it:


I notice that she groups the BBC journalists in with all the other lefties.

Also, check out Ros Ball from BBC Parliament. Gender politics is her thing. Likes – female Marxist historians on the BBC and mooncups. Dislikes – Tories and, er, Doris Day.


Whip crack-away!

    So what can be so offensive about the film Calamity Jane?  It’s donkeys since I’ve seen it; but from what I remember it is about a really tough woman, one who is as tough as the men, but remains a woman.  In other words the left hate to think that any woman can love a man and remain true to their feminist ideals.

    These lefties are so sexist and heterophobic.

        The BBC is studiously avoiding all the anti-Semites, the violence inherent in the effigies on spikes, the people shitting on police cars. As Mary Katharine Ham tweeted yesterday: “Imagine a world in which Tea Partiers clogged a bridge in urban area & crapped on a cop car & it was not THE ONLY STORY on TV.”

        Yes, just imagine if someone at a Tea Party rally had taken a dump on a police car. How many times do you suppose THAT would’ve been mentioned across the BBC empire?

        The point is to tell you that these people are on the side of the angels, and truly representative of the US public.  Exactly the opposite of how the BBC treated Tea Party people.

        Oh, and did you notice they’re all white?  Curious that the BBC hasn’t bothered to point that out.  Exactly the opposite of how the BBC treated Tea Party people.

            And also how oblivious they are to their own guidelines. There is not even an attempt to hide their political leanings.

            “In some cases, you will need to consider the risk that “retweeting” of third party content by the BBC may appear to be an endorsement of the original author’s point of view.”

            http://www.reportr.net/2010/05/18/revised-bbc-social-media-guidelines-offer-practical-advice/

            Its not the re-tweeting that endorses the leftist credentials, it’s their own tweets that confirm them.

            Note also

            “Even if they are not identified as a BBC staff member, editorial staff and staff in politically sensitive areas should not be seen to support any political party or cause.”
            http://www.bbc.co.uk/editorialguidelines/page/guidance-blogs-personal-full

            If I ignored all the rules and regulations of my employer I would be sacked. That these people can associate with hard line leftists protests and not face any consequence at all, proves to me that the guidelines mean that even the top brass at the BBC  have no intention of keeping to them.

      Strewth, they never let up, do they?  Yes, the King saw Emily Pankhurst out for a stroll one day and knocked her down with his horse and killed her for being a feminist.

      If it wasn’t for Ros everyone might still think Emily Pankhurst died because she flung herself in front of the King’s horse during a race.  Now we can be pro-feminist and anti-Monarchist all at the same time.

        What is so obvious is that anyone knows that the woman deliberately threw herself under the hooves.  At the time,  a very brave act.  For her cause,  getting the vote for women,  Which a male Parliament was resisting.

        This stupid woman cannot even tell the truth – the truth that we all know.   She DEMEANS the sacrifice of life,  making it see like an accident.

        Now that,  to me,  is anti-feminist.  But she is too bloody dumb to see it,  too damn dumb to understand the meaning of words.

        And we are being forced to pay what – £40K a year plus expenses,  with overheads including office space,  pension etc more like £100K a year – for such pig-ignorance and bias.

    As you say so vividly – the BBC is squatting over our culture like an incubus – and undermining it at the same time.

    OT

    I don’t watch live TV these days – I just trawl through eg BBC iPlayer once a week to check if there was anything worth looking at.   Today,  as usual,  I found just 3 programmes on 4 channels of BBC TV over 7 days. 

    iPlayer shows very clearly how much of the BBC stuff is either old repeats or repeats of the current week recycled a couple of days later.  There is maybe enough “original” programming to fill 2 TV channels max.   (Much of it total dross,  of course).   

    The BBC review should have axed Channels 3 and 4. 

    Someone remarked the other day about the glory days of BBC 2 – the great programming David Attenborough as Channel Director sposored. 

    How are the mighty fallen.

    ………………………….

    I know there would be copyright issues,  but if someone gave me a budget of a few tens of thousands a year I could compose a better video channel from random trawls of YouTube and selections from the Internet. 

    eg

    US News Hour

    – clips from RealClearPolitics,  DailyCaller and Breitbart for the right-wing stuff,  and from HuffPo etc for the lefties – I would provide more scrupulous balance than the BBC does because it is NOT in their genes.  Probably for one ten-thousandth of what Lardy Mardy and his US-based gang costs.

    eg Introducing Herman Cain  – Yes We Cain :

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/10/07/herman_cain_addresses_the_values_voter_summit.html

    What “OccupyWallStreet” is really about :

    http://www.breitbart.tv/defecate-wall-street-protesters-trash-gotham-defecate-on-nypd-car/

    http://www.breitbart.tv/occupy-atlanta-mob-refuses-to-allow-civil-rights-hero-john-lewis-to-speak/

    Travel Hour – YouTube clips from all over the world

    eg Aitutaki Lagoon (20km across) in the South Pacific :

    and by contrast,  Annapurna Sanctuary in Nepal,  an “amphitheatre” surrounded by peaks of 6, 7 and 8000 metres :

    Arts Hour :

    eg La Stupenda :

    and Joan Sutherland with Pavorotti,  also from Lucia di Lammermoor :

    and maybe a bit of Olivier :

    or the Cassius plotting monologue from Julius Caesar :

    ………………………………..
    and as an example of cute children’s programming,  things like this :

    …………………….

    etc – maybe with a cribbed news-headlines slot every hour.

    Easy-Peasy – that lot took about 20 minutes to string together,  and every “classic” YouTube link has dozens of othert links for further programmes

    So who needs £ 4 billion a year to”Deliver Quality” back on screen ?

    ‘..but Jesus, it’s offensive’ (talking presumably about DD in ‘Calamity Jane’).

    In itself the use of ‘Jesus’ in that context is highly offensive to a lot of the folk she relies on to pay her wages.

    The BBC reaction was typified in  interview with Doris Day by Rebecca Jones (Arts correspondent):

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9567000/9567248.stm

    Doris Day, did you ever get fed up ….?

    Doris: No. I liked it the way it was!.

    Elsewhere on BBC site:

    “She may lack sex (and camp) appeal but when talking about the Magic Of Doris Day then…”

    Sex and camp…tres BBC!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/xfqv

    All in all, Doris is , in BBC metrosexual eyes, a bit of a kipper.

    PS She is my Mum’s age. I recognise a lot of the instinctive cheerfulness and ‘wholesomeness’ in many of her generation that want through real privations in the war years and bounced back.

      I bet she’s not a Marxist still.   Sensible people grow out of that sort of thing.  And what’s the point of some BBC daft floppertigibbet having a crush on her – she’s married.

      Judging  by her website,  she has more ability and real achievement  than 99% of the people at the BBC.

    Something is missing. Oh. It’s Jane Bradley’s self awareness.
    Look at me! “Too hung over to attend the lefty rally!”
    Look at me! “plastic cup of cheap alcohol in hand!
    For some reason those boasts reminds me of Waynetta Slob.
    “I’m smoking – a fag.”     brahn baby, maybe?

    I looked her up, and I think she’s just trying to look grown-up.

    The edict re disclaimers on tweets: ‘These views are my own, not those of the BBC’.
    Jane Bradley jauntily pares hers down to “Views my own.” That’s so confident, so jokey, so cavalier it makes you want to punch her in the face.

    I still want to know why the BBC thinks putting a disclaimer will fool anyone into believing that the BBC isn’t biased? I mean, who is the BBC if not the sum of its parts?
    Or is there a man behind a curtain, like the Wizard of Oz, who represents the BBC’s views? If so, can we see him sometime, and hear exactly what his views are?

    Twitter is dire. I couldn’t stop thinking about Bella Freud and her incessant harping on about Palestine. She mentions her great grandfather Sigmund. That takes self loathing to new heights. If all her ‘Hitler was right ‘ mates had their way, she wouldn’t even be here. What a dope.

    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      The disclaimer “Views are my own” is what the BBC thinks is a get-out-jail-free card on the issue of bias.  What they fail to understand is that, regardless of how many times they state that these far-Left views are not official BBC positions, when the entire staff is on side, it’s impossible to claim there’s anything resembling balance or intellectual diversity at the BBC.

      The constant stream of opinion expressed by Beeboids on Twitter shows there is no one there to rein it in, and it’s clearly not just the on-air talent.  Possibly there are a couple of editors or senior producers who have a clue and work for some semblance of reasonableness, as Rod Liddle claims he used to be, but there’s scant evidence of it.

    It’s like the BBC’s attitude to being green or enjoying diversity. They urge others to do it but they don’t want any of it for themselves or their children, preferring an affluent, consumerist lifestyle surrounded by their own type.

      Still waiting on some after years. Which is what they rely on. And even if you do chase, the result is usually some vapid ‘sorry it’s taken so long; we were busy’ insincere brush off.

      The top of the tree, in theory, is Helen ‘Hugs’ Boaden, who rather infamously was outed for claiming she has a special email to nowhere if anything does get as far as her.

      This well-remunerated woman has been in the frame a lot of late.

      Sadly, only interviewed by her subordinates, lest any dodgy questions sneak in.

      For instance to challenge the integrity of the corrupted petri dish that is her cherished impartial staff DNA. Frankly, the whole sorry edifice that is the BBC seems to be square on top of Raccoon City, though the danger may be more to the mutants with what drips down.

      Or one might ask why, for all her title and pay, not one of those underneath her seems to pay a blind bit of notice to her pathetic chummy ‘please don’t make us look bad’ emails, especially on twitter.

      As this latest post shows, it remains the gift that keeps on giving, as the Waynetta wannabees air their… very dirty… laundry.

      Several of my complaints from last two years have yet to receive any reply. Most replies are dismissive and if you reply to their email, there is no response, so you have to complain again and so the cycle starts over.

    Well done DB! Its great to “out” the Beeboid Twatteratti – It really is astounding how these media types don’t actually understand how modern media works.. They want to have a presence and a profile to build their career and so they bleat on oblvious to the fact that everything they tweet is recorded for eternity to be analyzed by anyone forever and brought back at the click of a button. So what do we make of Jane – alcoholic, disorganised, unreliable, lack of self-control, irrational, comfortable only in her left leaning clique and doesn’t like Doris Day in Calamity Jane – nice CV jane you will fit in well at the BBC – you arsehole..  Isn’t it strange but I get the impression that like many others I can almost accept all this (I’m no saint myself but at least I have the sense to keep it to myself as opposed to announcing it to the world – note: add stupidity to Janes List) but its the fact that she dislikes Doris Day which seems to really grate. FYI: Doris Day is not just a gay icon.

    Twitter! BBC so-called unbiased journos should be completely banned from it because the thing is in essence no more than an adolescent leftie ‘look at me, I’m oh so right-on’ echo chamber.

      Actually I think the beeboids should carry on, they can’t help themselves and their lefty views get outed, just a shame the right wing press don’t catch on.

    Twittering is anessential part of Institutional Narcisism: I am a Leftie because I care about (insert latest victim group), and I hate Tories ( broadcast tweet as proof). I must therefore be a nice person, so I feel good about myself (Narrcissus falls in love with his own reflection).
    She is surrounded by people drifting in the same delusion within the media hive. They all feel good about themselves. Institutional Narcisism.

    The bias shown by Ros is one hell of a find and a bigger stroy than Jane (I mean at least she’s acknowleding her own bias and trying to do something about it by exposing her to a wider range of viewpoints)

    As for Ros, it’s not as if she’s some secretary or sports reporter or anything where politics is less of an issue. No she works for BBC Parliament of all things!

    there is some political diversity as Lib dems get as much of a look in as labour which surprised me tbh, but it’s her feminism which reveals the most. A few feminists are in fact relatively rational and sensible people, but she’s clearly not one of those. Ros is following some of the most extreme and uptight ones:

    Huge Schwyzer- the worst of the lot, every single thing he writes bascially attacks men and fathers in some way.

    Cath Ellitot – one of the mroe extreme man haters at the Guardian (and that’s pretty damn impressive as there are so many)

    An anti-porn project

    misogyny watch

    The Fawcett Society – the most dishonest and sexist pressure group ever? famous for its made up stats.

    Harriet Harman – need I say any more?

    No wonder the BBC is so biased when they are infested with so many staff with such ridiculous, one sidedand out of touch views

    Do you remember the last election and twitter was ablaze with support for the LIB-DEMS? Particularly during the debates. Polls apparantly predicted some 30% support for them. yet when it came to the day the actual vote was the usual 20%. The thing about Twitter is that I think its a lot of people talking to themselves (mostly the left) fooling themselves that everyone is listening. I think its a large reason why Guardian print figures are tanking all these technology aware lefties are reading the paper online. ABC figures are out this week I predict  a futher decline under 240000 for the Guardian.

    If the Beeboid lefties want something to demonstrate about, there’s Livingstone and his Islamic Republic of Iran-PRESS TV (Ealing,London) connections; oh no: they’re anti-Israel.

      I suppose Livingstone is only going with the flow .After all London is rapidly becoming a foreign city and has little to do with the rest of England.
      If he wants to be mayor I can’t say I blame him.
      On a more serious note this disconnection between London and England is going to be the dominant problem facing this country within a generation. There are no precedents for this and it can only bode ill.
      I spend a fair amount of time in Wales and it is definitely beginning to feel different as if the people are collectively preparing for a seperate future in a Balkanised Britain.

        You often post sentiments like that.   I think you are right.  In many parts of London it is like being in a foreign country.    And even allowing for “diversity” – when I go to the East End I feel almost alien

          Visited relatives in Kingsbury the other week, near where I grew up. Strangest part was at the station when the tube train doors open, there is an overwhelming smell of curry hanging in the air. The shops in the main road are virtually 100% Asian, as were most of the people in the street There must have been an awful lot of people sold up and moved to make way for the replacement population. Difficult to believe they were all “racists”: maybe they just didn’t much like being “colonised” and having diversity stuffed down their throats. As seems often the case, the replacement community is monocultural.

    To the assorted lotus eaters named, can I include Stephen Fry as a late entry for the pits?
    Just caught the end of his “language” show…apparently we`re to glory in the rebelliousness of hip-hop rapping and not to be so…well, fuddy duddy I suppose!
    Unless it is racist or hate speech as Stephen or any of his chums would judge it.
    Clearly he managed to get a few BBC heroes…yes, those poor lambs who suffered institutional homophobia in the 60s.
    You know….the likes of Kenneth Williams and Joe Orton who were on some reverse McCarthy list, where they got way too much work given how unfunny they were…Allan Carr Syndrome of its day!
    Anyway…he`ll have no kids our Stephen so won`t be worrying about words like shanking and wilding in Homerton after pub closing…it`s that joyous celebration of rebellion that gave us things like the riots.
    Guess Stephen calls them uprisings…for he can spell and read having had an education and not a beat box as his teecha!

    Will these ‘lefty’ demonstrators of Trafalgar Square, London support the Christian demonstrators of Tahrir Square, Cairo who are  being persecuted by Muslims and by the army and police?

    Egypt: Muslim thugs, military attack Christian protestors, 19 dead

    Of course, INBBC has relegated its reporting of the build up to all this, and writes off the Islamic persecution
     of Christians in Egypt as mere ‘sectarian’ conflict.

      The comely bint on News 24 has just been reporting this as ‘clashes between Coptic Christians and Egyptian Police.  The Copts were protesting about a Church being burned in the north of the country’.  Footage of burning cars in the street and disorder.

      Fighting the Police eh? Setting the streets alight.  Aren’t these Christians bad.

    A TV Licensing spokeswoman explained that once someone is convicted of licence evasion, their records are wiped clean and any fines are pursued purely by the courts.
    So they wipe the records ?? why ? every system I know that involves possible prosecution has to keep records! well unless your pay masters want the paper trail to stop with the courts so they can announce that ‘the BBC have sent no one to prison ‘ they just make the courts do it for them !
    “However, TV Licensing has a duty to uphold the law and is not able to make concessions other than those granted by Parliament.”
    So [the evil Tory controlled!!]parliament  set the ‘concessions’ for the BBC’s hired thugs investigations and illegal entry methods? the [baby eating cons!]government ordered the ‘concession’ that the BBC must  force any one unable to pay  into the legal system A.S.A.P  TO BE punished and imprisoned ?

    Just had a scan through some of Ros Ball’s tweets, this one is especailly illuminating:


    Rosball Ros Ball Just broke one of my crucial Internet rules: never read the comments at the bottom of ANYTHING. (Espec articles on Playboy clubs opening) 5 Sep

    So she works for the BBC and would need to know a full range of views to be able to do her job properly. She obviiously choses to focus on rading feminist nonsense which is bad enough, but then she further filters out any possible dissent from the man hating matra by totally igoring any comments (which in my experience can often be far more illuminating than the article itself)/

    Littel wonder that so many BBC staff are so trapped in their own bubble
