Weekend Thread 25 January 2020

The BBC has a policy line that it is doing ok because it is attacked by left and right . So the challenge is – list those policies of the Right to which the BBC is biased or supports . And I write that as a challenge to readers and users of this site . Who are the right wing BBC journalists ? And explain why they are ‘right wing ‘ Where is the anti left wing bias ? Oh yes – show all ‘workings ‘ in your answers….

    BBC : “US Space Force logo looks like one from Star Trek”

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-51245262

    Good to see our much respected national broadcaster maintaining a sense of maturity, we wouldn’t want the BBC to dumb-down.

    “The newly unveiled logo for US President Donald Trump’s Space Force appears to have boldly gone where Star Trek went before.”

    Oh, now I understand, the Beeb are having a poke at that Donald Trump – the US President they don’t approve or respect, at least not in the way they did his predecessor Obama.

    “Twitter users noted that the emblem, revealed by the president, bears an uncanny likeness to the insignia from the cult sci-fi TV series.”

    Well, blimey, if it’s on Twitter, I guess the BBC are bound to take this nonesense seriously and promote it to a top story on their news page.

    “But others online insisted the logo was really based on the US Air Force one.”

    So eventually the BBC has to admit this Twitter storm was nothing more than a few motivated anti-Trump people desperate for some excuse to have a moan about a President they don’t like.

    Which pretty much is what the BBC are up to in bringing us this non-story.

      The CEO of a charity called ‘ combat stress’ has announced that any ex military coming to the charity will be referred to the NHS ( join the queue ). The BBC led with this story – which I would suggest might be a bit on ‘ nes management ‘ to pressure the taxpayer to give more to this charity . I saw that it has a turnover of 18 million quid .
      There was no challenge to how this charity is managed . No mention of other charities like the Royal British Legion or Help For Heroes or the other military charities .

      Instead Toady went for the ‘ soft ‘ option of reciting the causes and consequences of combat stress PTSD rather than challenging the management of this charity / company on its failure to get enough money –

      There’ll be an announcement soon about a ‘whip round’ to fill the gap – probably with the £300k which had been raised to get the bells ringing for Brexit.

      As an aside – as moderator – I put up a challenge in the preamble for examples of right wing bias in the BBC . I’ve not spotted any examples yet ….

          Stew – being both an anorak and having a general interest in the Charity industry I had a little look at the accounts for ‘combat stress Ltd’ . – looking for clues regarding funding – I noticed £500k is assigned to pension provision ..

          But it should also noted that it is a charity industry where there is competition for the money of the sincere and well meaning public . Generosity is exploited but I fear so much generosity becomes syphoned into pay and stuff not directly benefiting those for whom the cash is given .

          PTSD is a complex and long term condition / illness so even though we are not involved in nonsense wars ( except at home ) there will still be victims .

          Personally I think the government should remove the need for these charities and pick up the tab itself since it got the military involved in the first place .

            “The total remuneration costs of the CEO and Executive Directors in 2018/19 was £674k (2018: £665k).
            This does not include the costs of Interim Executive Directors paid as consultants. ”
            (That’s 4 staff)

            Personally if a fundraiser is a superstar and brings in £20m funding I think it’s OK to pay him a £1m if he/she demands it.

              And if they fail they go onto the Toady programme to moan about cuts in tax payers money which pays the 100k plus wages and package . And get the soft treatment with a back text of ‘ nasty tories ‘ . Maybe pay it out of the overseas give away money ( borrowed ) since the PTSD was caused overseas …. ( except fighting Corbyn’s IRA of course )

      I am reminded of an instance from some years back – certainly prior to the 2012 London Olympics – when a female BBC 5 Live presenter proudly proclaimed that Usain Bolt was the hero of her 4- (I think) year-old son.

      The Jamaican runner was not particularly a household name at the time in Britain and the hundred yard dash was not to my mind a sport closely followed by youngsters. Surely boys tend to adopt a football team and their stars as their initial interest in sport.

      But then if you saw this for what it was – a blatant bit of virtue signalling by the BBC-type mother – now it made sense.

          When “easy” apparently means visiting every hotel car park in the city and scouring them for a Tesla with NY licence plates.

    Good piece in the DT today by Charles Moore about how the BBC has undermined its own position by its political and cultural bias which isn’t shared by the majority of those who are forced to pay for it. Unfortunately he spoils it by suggesting that the BBC should be funded by a much reduced LF rather than being forced to fund itself entirely by subscription. But I am feeling optimistic because I see signs of the previously silent majority, who despise the Wokist values of the BBC, beginning to rebel against Wokism in all its forms. The culture war has at long last started in earnest. The government MUST take this anti Wokist rebellion at its flood and decriminalise non payment of the LF which will allow more people to show their deep resentment of being forced to pay for the BBC under threat of imprisonment without risking a criminal record. Forcing the BBC to become a subscription only service will then be a much easier proposition. Losing the culture war will be a terminal blow to the Globalist elite. We can see the first light of liberation on the horizon.

        The programme was somehow third-rate, like a scrappy amateur football match. Ed was somehow third-rate. Hard to believe he was actually Shadow Chancellor once and an economics bigwig. Says a lot about Labour.
        Says a lot about beeb, that they should think him fit to do this series.
        It is a series, I think. About ‘populists’. Think I’ll give the rest a miss.
        If The League wins in Emilia Romagna tomorrow, Ed may soon have some more populism to worry about/puzzle over. Viva Salvini!

      I haven’t seen it and I won’t be it watching either. Guaranteed.
      The Beeb have recently completely mangled two of my favourite books, A Christmas Carol and War of the Worlds. They got rave reviews as well. What you have to consider is that the people reviewing these shows are all part of the same PC club. Both were appalling, wokified versions of the classics that I so enjoyed.
      And look what they’ve done to Sherlock and Dr Who!
      David Copperfield was the first Dickens I ever read. I was awarded it at primary school for “Good Progress” and the Beeb were serialising it every Sunday as well. They did it brilliantly.
      These days everything they touch has to be filtered through the prism of the liberal agenda. They’re not recreating a Dickensian classic, that’s just the vehicle to carry the message. What they’re giving you a piece of BBC propaganda. David Copperfield being Asian is only the beginning. There will be unsubtle references to racism, sexism, Islamophobia, even bleedin’ Brexit and, if they can, transgenderism.
      Mary Beard (oh dear) was interviewing the bloke who’s given us this “up to date” version, Armando Iannucci, last night. I only managed about three minutes…They were talking about some of Copperfield’s nicknames “Oh, he was called Daisy, so he was gender fluid” joked Beard.
      I’m afraid I’ll have to miss this classic. I’m busy washing my hair that night.
      All three of them…

          I seem to recall that at Primary School we had some abridged ‘Childrens Versions’ of Dickens. I read several – possibly all three or four or five that were available in the School Library.

          Not that that would have mattered, too much. Firstly my Dad was a Dickens fan and I’m sure I would have caught the bug from him in later years anyway. But also the BBC, for Childrens’ Television on Sundays, did some great adaptions. I still remember being scared by Magwitch and Miss Haversham in Great Expectations and we only had a 12 inch screen and black & white TV then.

            I agree Up2, sometimes Dickens was heavy going for a schoolchild, but I found the stories easier to understand, alongside the book, from watching those grainy black and white BBC adaptations back in the late 1950’s.

            I thought this Armando Iannucci was some Italian filmmaker in the style of Frederico Fellini, but it appears he’s from Scotland of Italian heritage. After all the critics worshipping at his feet, no doubt his next project will be to turn the works of Jane Austin on its head, now he’s got the bit between his teeth.

            Well I like my stories to be true to the way they were written , albeit 200 years ago, and seeing BAMEs dancing around in crinolines and top hats, doesn’t make my brain comfortable.

    In my view the current discussion about a subscription model for State Broadcaster will end in one of three ways.

    No change.

    An undertaking to review any alleged bias exhibited across the broadcaster’s output.

    The replacement of the TV tax with funding by subscription.

    Personally whilst I favour the last option the first is the most likely outcome.

    On the question of bias I wonder whether the most determined defence of State Broadcaster is coming from the Left or the Right?

Maybe he doesn’t realise he’s a racist because all those white, woke BBC types he surrounds himself with are too scared to tell him…in case they are labelled racist themselves.

    Perhaps what he needs is a wake up call, maybe someone should smack him in the face with a shovel everytime he says something I think is ‘unacceptable’…too harsh you think? Wait, hear me out…a bread roll just doesn’t cut it and a glass full of acid is too savage and brutal…..so maybe a wee shovel in the kister is just the thing…let’s face it you’d never notice…it’d hardly make any difference to the smug features of Pish Kumar.

    No? Still think it too harsh?

    You’d be right of course…it’d be extremely nasty and thuggish to rearrange Pish Kumar’s features with a shovel just because you disagree with his views.

    However it seems Pish Kumar is not so tolerant and forgiving hmself. It seems that Laurence Fox is such an evil person, has said things that are so abhorrent, and has not prostrated himself enough and begged forgiveness for those sins, and has stocially refused to atone or make reparation for his appalling views that violence may be necessary…or as Pish Kumar said when talking about Brexit, or was it HS2…they are..

    ‘Shovel ready like Laurence Fox’s face’

    And you know exactly what he means. Just a little joke huh? But it’s all so very apparent from that little joke what Pish Kumar really thinks…one, that Fox’s thoughts are not ‘acceptable’ and two, that it is OK to suggest such thoughts might be met with violence…only joking though…just a bit’o’banter….but you know that Pish really does think that….just as Jo Brand really thinks acid should be thrown at Nigel Farage and his ilk.

    Old Pish doesn’t like Britain, as with Abbott he thinks the problem with Britain is that there are too many white people…and their history is appalling and racist.

    Well, let’s channel a bit of Trump and suggest he goes back to the country that his parents came from and then have a look round and discover why they left to come to nasty, racist Britain…then come back and maybe appreciate the country that all those nasty white people built…along with its democracy, laws, education, human rights, welfare and of course the NHS that he and his fellow people of migrant heritage so eagerly use.

    Take a few Beeboids with him…they could learn a lot….just don’t expose the little snowflakes to too much squalor and brutishness as they might get PTSD and have to retire to a BBC backwater.

    Or maybe just have a word with Nige…

      Its truly amazing how ethnics love to hear the sound of their own voice, and take delight in shouting anyone else down. Last night The Pledge and Afua Hirsch was in full ‘Afua Hirsch’ mode, hogging most of the debate to the detriment of the others. One subject never saw Nick Ferrari speak at all (which was unusual), but Hirsch was in full flow constantly, with “I just want to make this point”, and “my final point is…..” and “if I can make another point”, um, is there a second shovel available ????

    The news items on my google home page directed me to an article in the i (Independent) stating that as well as cutting Victoria Derbyshire (who watches her anyway?), the management have declared less film clips on Newsnight and cuts from the Today programme. Well who watches Newsnight? And I don’t care about Today because after a lifetime listening (Monty Modlin anyone?), I gave up in the autumn and never miss it. But I expect the BBC are hoping for an outcry and that the funding will be found. I was on a BBC panel when there were proposed cuts to BBC Radio 6. It became obvious that the panel’s Chair had been directed to find the right results from questions to the panel for the station to be saved. And hey ho the Trust took the panel’s advice and Radio 6 was saved. I think we are in a whole different paradigm now.

    Heard Bowen on Today this morning…no need to over-elaborate, you can take it for granted that whatever he said was slanted against Trump and the Israelis. But did laugh when he said that it was very important that Journalists didn’t become the story…before then immediately launching into a long spiel about himself and how the Israelis had tried to kill ‘him’…hmmm…rather suggest they were trying to kill what they thought were terrorists as they were in a war zone. Nothing personal Jezza…though you might wonder how many Jews have died as a result of BBC reporting under the editorial guidance of Bowen and how much anti-semitism across the world has been fed by that reporting. BBC news kills Jews.

    Anyone ever seen Bercow and Bowen in the same place? Short-arse, pompous little blowhards who have an over-inflated opinion of themselves. Separated at birth?

        Bowen needs to accept that his colleague died because Bowen put him in danger…they knowingly went into a war zone in which those fighting the Israelis didn’t wear uniforms…it is extremely dangerous thing to do. In Afghan the Taliban would leap out of a taxi and launch a rocket and then try and drive off…..and there was that famously ‘infamous’ occasion in Iraq where a US helicopter shot up some journalists and the BBC used this to cry ‘war crime’. However…the people with the journalists were clearly carry AKs and the dumbest journalist in the world pointed his large camera at the helicopter from a position of ‘cover’…looking like an RPG…and if you know how many helicopters have been shot down by RPGs you’d understand why there might be some itchy trigger fingers.

        Bowen killed his colleague. No wonder he is trying to push the blame elsewhere.

    Very little on our screens about the ongoing COUP in the US (disguised as ‘impeachment’) and nothing about the illegal activities of a certain CIA operative, Mr Brennan, whom we saw on the beeb tv last year. Nothing about the cause he was serving then, or its leaders, Obama and Killary, who -on day one of the Trump presidency- launched the coup.
    A certain Mr. Mueller tried hard for two years to link Russia to the Trump victory, as a basis for impeachment, without success. Now they’re using the Ukraine. Nothing about WHO was really involved (Clinton, Biden) with both Russia and the Ukraine.
    Killary can escape, in the unlikely event she is brought to justice. I see she has been made Chancellor of Queens University in N Ireland. Enough place to hide there, in the green hills…We can always trust our western Universities to do the WRONG thing!
    Meanwhile, the Democrats are hoping the impeachment will divert attention from the coup, and also throw enough mud at the President to help them in the forthcoming election. I very much doubt they think this impeachment will happen, but hey, they’ve ‘got’ Trump impeached. Together with their other objectives, we can see one thing: how good they are at multi-tasking.
    Misuse of the impeachment process will do great damage to the US political system and suck up vast resources of time and money. The Democrats don’t seem to care. Sure the beeb will give them a big thumbs up, though!

      So as far as I understand it, the crooks are trying to impeach a President for asking about reopening this investigation.

      Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor who was fired and who had been leading a wide-ranging corruption investigation of Burisma at the time, said afterwards: “We had plans that included interrogations and other crime investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden”.

      The fact that we import far more from the ReichEU than export to them is one of our biggest weapons . The remain / BBC camp have played this down as part of their campaign .

      I think it is dangerous to celebrate such a pro brexit article too much because it is based on current economic circumstances . Stock markets and employment levels can’t go up for ever .

      In my experience when you read something in the media saying “ this time it’s different” it’s time to panic – and I know Chartists will be looking for the ( global ) economy to ‘flip ‘ and recess .

      I think issues such as fishing rights will be a big test . The French will accuse UK of being unfriendly and continue to undermine our independence using traitors in the establishment such as the BBC and peers . But we ll see .,

    Under Lord Hall’s administration, a moronic wokeness began to infest each and every part of the BBC’s output. For sure, the news and current affairs programmes were hideously biased on the issues of the European Union, immigration, Israel, Islam and identity politics, even more so than they had been before. And one became used to presenters sneering and snarling at anyone who dared to offer a different view to their own. But it was as nothing compared with the rest of the programming.

    The rapidly dwindling audience for the latest, execrable Doctor Who series is the obvious case in point, a once glorious piece of fun for kids which is now a propaganda sheet for agitprop middle-class London liberals (and, for kids, virtually unwatchable
    … Every drama had a message shoehorned into it.

    There was no respite on comedy panel shows, either, where participants thought it enough to say ‘Trump’ or ‘Boris’ to gain a laugh. Radio 4 meanwhile transformed itself into an endless fugue of misery and victimhood: listen to it for more than an hour and you begin to reach for a razor blade. No wonder the audience share plummeted.

    The News Quiz, and indeed just about everything on the BBC from its news, to drama and entertainment, science and even sport, are all deeply engaged in promoting the BBC’s cultural war against Leave voters, Tory voters, white people, white men in particular, Christians, ‘Israelis’, Hindus, climate sceptics, Trump, anyone who thinks abortion at 24 weeks is questionable or maybe that there are issues with men declaring themselves to be women, people who think border controls are a good idea or that a nation state is the best way to run things…for instance the National Health Service…it just won’t, can’t, exist in a world without borders and taxes. I could go on and on and on. The BBC just doesn’t like Britain, England in particular, the nation state and white people and their history and does everything it can to denigrate, rubbish and discredit them as much as possible.

    Odd then that Pish Kumar, as he stated on The News Quiz, believes that…

    ‘This government is waging an ideological war against the BBC!!!’

    Odd that the BBC allows him to use The News Quiz as a platform to peddle his bias…but then it also allowed him to suggest that Laurence Fox be smashed in the face with a shovel for daring to speak truth to Black Power.

    The whole of The News Quiz provides ample evidence of precisely why the government might want to ‘check the BBC’s thinking’ as what we got was a relentless barrage of anti-Boris/Trump/brexit/government sneers that were purely an expression of the entitled, self-indulgent bubble-speak that streams out of the BBC every minute of the day and night masquerading as comedy or unbiased, honest, accurate news and comment.

    One day change will come…let’s hope sooner than later.

    Some perspective on the coronavirus….

    Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate that’s higher than the previous one of 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year.

    The new figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other groups were published Dec. 13 in The Lancet medical journal.

    Falls are the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths worldwide.
    Each year an estimated 646 000 individuals die from falls globally of which over 80% are in low- and middle-income countries.
    Adults older than 65 years of age suffer the greatest number of fatal falls.
    37.3 million falls that are severe enough to require medical attention occur each year.

I have an old colleague (married to a German) complaining on twitter about how they’ll never be able to move there if they so choose in a few years time to which I point out that the US ins’t in the EU and that you don’t need and EU to move countries.

        The US immigration stuff (pay attention UK) is no more difficult than a loan application. If you’re employable then you get in, if you’re someone from the 3rd world looking to move to California and get a free house and free healthcare, you don’t get in. Ironically those that sneak in and make it work are the subset of people that you actually want (go-getters) and they thus undermine the whole immigration control thing.

    Ok the left-wing press have decided their tactics after the massive Boris surge, especially in the North.

    They are going to paint him as a liar to all those trusting Northern folk!

    Apparently Boris is single-handedly working behind the scenes to actually cut spending in the Northern areas and cities and instead switch it to what they called the South’s leafy shires.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/topic/local-government-association

    …way down the text they craftily reveal that this garbage is coming from the LABOUR group on the local government association…

    As for the Independent publishing this fairy tale scare story, it’s not really going to achieve much because most of the people in the North who they are trying to stir up and get back into the Labour fold don’t go anywhere near the Independent and Guardian etc. who will no doubt pick this thread up and pass it along their buddies at the BBC…

    ‘Sunday’ on R4 this morning had a piece on the Holocaust that looked at an exhibiton of photographs of Jews being taken away to the camps.

    This photograph was highlighted as the most famous…

    main_1200.jpg?1420518938

    We were told that it was almost benign and that we didn’t get the real horror that it actually represented…and that such pictures were taken as propaganda meant to dehumanise and ‘other’ the Jews.

    Many pictures were taken by individual German soldiers and found after the war in their photo albums or by Allied soldiers liberating the camps or by Jews themselves secretly inside the camps and ghettoes.

    This particular photo was taken as part of an internal report on the arrest and round-up of Jewish people…

    ‘A group of Jews, including a small boy, is escorted from the Warsaw Ghetto by German soldiers in this April 19, 1943 photo. The picture formed part of a report from SS Gen. Stroop to his Commanding Officer, and was introduced as evidence to the War Crimes trials in Nuremberg in 1945. ‘

    The BBC of course couldn’t miss an opportunity to exploit this for its own purposes as it does with all history…the Romans invading Britain had three black soldiers thus Britain is really a black nation, Muslims invented science[lol] thus we owe everything to them [so just ignore the bombing of kids and the head chopping of people on our streets]…and we are all a nation of immigrants.

    In this case we hear that the Nazis used the photos to ‘other’ the Jews and this resonates today as photographs are used to ‘other’ immigrants and asylum seekers and to make them seem a threat.

    Hmmm…they of course mean this photo in particular…

    Once again the BBC is calling anyone who makes the case for sensible controlled immigration a Nazi.

    The only ‘othering’ is the BBC trying to label and demonise anyone who voted Leave as racists and Far-Right…Nazis.

    The Telegraph tells us ‘Rupert Murdoch to launch rival for BBC’s Radio 4 ‘

    But don’t get too excited….that’s a commercial rival not an ideological one. The new station is meant to attract the very same people that listen to R4 and to get them to buy the Times…so it’s not going to be UKIP Live.

    ‘Rupert Murdoch is poised to mount an attack on the vulnerable BBC with a new radio station designed to threaten Radio 4.

    The UK arm of the media mogul’s News Corp empire is due this week to announce details of Times Radio, a DAB channel funded from the marketing budget of The Times titles.

    The “opinion-led” programming is expected to draw on writers such as Giles Coren in pursuit of Radio 4’s wealthy metropolitan audience.

    Sources said Times Radio does not intend to interrupt programmes for advertising. The station’s main commercial purpose will be to recruit “young, aspirational” subscribers to The Times.’

    And it’s Dab radio so that must limit the audience.

    Still anything that chips way at the dominance of the BBC must be welcomed.

    I’ve just read the Vlad Tepes blog and saw this. Look at item 2 and download the UN pdf report on Population Replacement. It explains why the evil bastards in power throughout the Western world, with few exceptions, are determined to import so many unwanted invaders.

    And of course, there’s no mention that if we hadn’t been murdering babies by the millions each year for the past 50 or more years, we’d have been replacing our national populations and thus would have no need for any immigrants:

    BBC News

    President Trump has called climate change: “mythical”, “a hoax”, not a hoax, and “a very serious subject”. What’s the truth?

      I’m not ‘up’ on tennis, but Coco ? really ? its funny how some names are ok and others aren’t. I once had a black Labrador called Sambo decades ago, and got the odd look. Imagine that name today, but I guess Coco is ok.
