The BBC’s Sarah Brett labelled Breitbart a Far-Right organisation saying its main followers were white supremacists. Whilst this may be the orthodox BBC liberal’s view, not only is it not true but even the BBC probably thinks Brett went too far in openly expressing such views as its usual description now is that Breitbart is ‘ultra-conservative’. Oddly dubious Muslim groups like the MCB, Cage, Mend or MPACUK are never described in such terms and in fact are treated with a grovelling reverence, their every word repeated with a degree of respect never given to respectable parties like UKIP or even the ultra mainstream Tories.
The BBC undermined its own claims yesterday as it fielded a media expert on the BBC news channel [not sure who he was as only saw last bit…1400 ish] who told us that Breitbart wasn’t about partisan reporting, it wasn’t an issue of neutrality…Breitbart was reporting what other news organisations don’t, or won’t, report…such as on immigration and Islam. He also gave us a clue as to why the BBC doesn’t like Breitbart. Not only does it reveal to the world facts the BBC would like kept hidden it is also in the top 30 of news providers on Facebook and something like 63rd in the US traffic ratings, which the commentator said made it a ‘leviathan’….with bigger reach than the BBC…75th in the US.
No wonder the BBC works so hard to malign this political rival just as it tried to destroy Murdoch and News Iinternational.
Good of the BBC to police the airwaves and decide who we can watch or listen to.
