Apologies to anyone who has covered this in the comments….I haven’t read them yet.
The BBC seem to have lost all sense of journalistic direction and proportion with the latest manufactured UKIP ‘scandal’……it proves the BBC is way, way out of touch with ‘normal’ people who more than likely agree with UKIP….as indeed a majority of the emails and texts into 5Live today seemed to ….it’s not as if the UKIP MEP was a ‘purveyor of death and fear’ now was it?
Further to David’s post on UKIP the BBC has been highlighting this strongly all day…and it is all over their website.
Unlike the UKIP candidate who said he wanted to introduce sharia law and cut off people’s hands…the BBC didn’t mention that at all….as I noted in a previous post.
But what else is going on out there on the fringes of the political world?
The judge told Simpson:
“It’s not an exaggeration to describe you as a purveyor of death and fear.”
That report was also in the Daily Mail print edition and presumably other papers…..so no excuses for the BBC to not report it….
…and yet…nothing from the BBC, the world’s finest news broadcaster with more journalists than any news organisation outside of China…as Mark Thompson told us..
This is the best the BBC could do…a link to the Daily Star:
