    Female white blonde Emily Maitlis has apparently been stood down from Newshite tonight after the accepted bias ruling.
    She has been replaced by ………errr………..a female white blonde.

    Now what was Lord Haw Haw saying about diversity and inclusivity?

        Of course, when you see the groaniad’s sort of headline, you know it’s going to be bolleaux, so you can safely ignore it!

        As I’ve so much more to do than ‘worry’ about the awful BBC, I’ve only just heard about their Em’s misfortunes.

        What an unbelievable shower her lot are in the Londonistan cesspit of W1aa, disrespectful, rather unpleasant, untruthful, non-informative, and squelching through a whole lot more negativity.

        Has she gone yet?

    The Police and Crime Commisioner for Northumbria is kicking off on Newshite.
    Oh wait. She, Kim Mcguinness was a third rate Labour Newcastle city councillor, from only 2015, with no relevant experience , but presumably dropped in by the party apparatchiks to fulfil this role. How else would she earn £85,000 pa ?
    Strangely the Emily Maitlis replacement female blonde presenter managed not to mention her background as Kim was allowed to trample unchallenged over the Test and Trace plans as if her role gave her some sort of expertise.

    Hilarious…Prima donna, diva of fake news, princess of pap, Emily Maitlis launches a highly political and prejudiced attack on Boris Johnson and Cummings that presented a totally skewed and dishonest picture of events and when she gets a slight slap on the wrist [the BBC refusing to actually broadcast an apology or correction] she swirls off in a huff and doesn’t dane to appear on Newsnight.

    Somewhat thin-skinned for such a thick but educated person.

    Can dish it out but can’t take it.

    ‘Emily Maitlis failed to appear on Newsnight after the BBC said her monologue about Dominic Cummings breached impartiality guidelines.

    Ms Maitlis caused a politic storm when she opened Tuesday night’s BBC Two programme with the words: “Dominic Cummings broke the rules. The country can see that and it’s shocked the Government cannot.”

    She criticised Boris Johnson’s “blind loyalty” to his special adviser and said the public mood is one of “fury, contempt and anguish”.

    Following a day of furious criticism, the BBC released a statement saying that the BBC Two programme had fallen short of required standards.

    Although the BBC did not go as far as an apology, Maitlis was said to be furious that she and her colleagues had been publicly reprimanded and she did not appear as planned on Wednesday’s programme. The presenter Katie Razzall took her place.’

      Maitlis (upwards of £260,000 per annum) has form of course, for instance that social justice piece on Newsnight earlier on in the Covid crisis, in which she was practically preaching to the camera about inequality. If she feels so strongly, then fine, get a job on the Guardian or some such, outside of an ‘impartial’ state broadcaster.

    The preying Mantis is no different to all the other beeb presenters, they all like hearing the sound of their own prejudiced opinions and have that glow of self importance. I think it was Tim Wilcox yesterday evening who ridiculed Michael Gove’s comment on LBC that he, like DC, had once driven a short distance to test his eyesight. The presenter’s comment was along the lines this was “an absolute joke”. No doubt Cummings could have done without such an intervention by Gove but the prime responsibility of these presenters is to report the news and not put their own spin on it.

    In the “old” days Ms Maitlis would have made the following introduction on Newsnight – “This evening we are looking at the issues raised by Dominic Cummings’ statement to reporters in Downing Street and I have with me in the studio to discuss this and the wider implications with ……

    These presenters need to go back to the basics of accurate and unbiased news reporting but I fear they are all beyond redemption.

    Hilarious moment at the end of Newshite.
    Doing a double-quick review of the newspaper front pages, the Telegraph has a huge picture of Emily Maitlis. It attracted no comment at all.
    Less hilariously anti-government headlines in other newspapers did not attract such omission.
    Every day they dig themselves a bigger hole.

    And tomorrow’s edition will apparently be hosted by ‘Emma’.
    Could this be Emma Barnett?
    If so Newshite will have been presented by three different female blondes in a row!

    Seems like the BBC’s attitude to inclusivity and inclusion is….ahem……rather selective.

    Sky’s Beff is still up for prolonging the fight with a few carefully selected clips from the 90 minute Parliamentary Liaison Committee grilling of Bojo today, 20 or so against one. Cannot see that ever happening in France, Germany or Italy and that also goes for the daily covid briefings with questions the Minister and scientists have no chance to prepare for in advance. Plenty of opportunities for the gotcha merchants. Have tried to find out if any other Countries have these regular televised interrogations of senior politicians but have drawn a blank so far.

    Plenty of Labour M.P.’s shouting the odds today and Sky chose to show the only occasions when Bojo was under any real pressure. One said “When you spoke to DC for 6 hours did you see the evidence that proved some of the allegations were untrue? Did you see it, YES OR NO? If there is evidence why isn’t it being made available for independent scrutiny?”. Boris struggled to come up with a killer reply, e.g. can you prove all the allegations were true? If so where is your evidence?

    He handled this charade fairly comfortably overall but his usual mental dexterity is still not quite fully restored.

    Newssniffer shows me the BBCnews story about Newsnight have been stealth edited 3 times so far

    0 to 1 Paragraph deleted

    The BBC has increasingly struggled to hold the line on issues of impartiality in its news coverage, having tied itself in knots over comments about Donald Trump by BBC Breakfast’s presenter Naga Munchetty. It also struggled to deal with the enormous levels of criticism from both Labour and the Conservatives during the 2019 general election.

    1 to version 2
    “Maitlis’s profile, already high, has skyrocketed since ” changed to “risen further”

    Version 2 to 3
    paragraph added
    \\Amid growing criticism of the reprimand, Newsnight’s editor, Esme Wren, wrote on Twitter that Maitlis
    “hasn’t been replaced tonight in response to the BBC statement”.//

        For some strange reason Newssniffer has not monitored the BBC Maitlis page.

          Nothing startling about the edits maybe
          I had a quick look at later edits
          In today’s edit all they did was change
          the disrespectful “Cummings”
          to “Mr Cummings” or “he”

          Early on the article ended with the takeaway : ‘BBC admit error’

          “As it was, we believe the introduction we broadcast did not meet our standards of due impartiality.”

          After about 90 mins they buried that by adding this at the end

          Cummings’ 260-mile journey has been the focus of intense media scrutiny since coming to light last week.

          On Monday, the prime minister’s most senior adviser explained that he decided to make the trip because he felt it would be better to self-isolate in a place where he had options for childcare if required.
          On Wednesday, Boris Johnson ruled out an inquiry into his adviser’s conduct, insisting it was time to “move on” from the row.

    As we would expect: Emily Maitlis lives in a part of the country called, Notting Hill. Which is as far from a Communist enclave that such BBC hypocrites could possibly get to in this country.

    The allegations are that Cummings broke the lockdown rules. But Police and Journalists haven’t provided any proof that the allegations are true or false. Labour MP asks Boris if there is any evidence that the allegations are false “If there is evidence why isn’t it being made available for independent scrutiny?”. Boris could have said “Probably because the only evidence one way or the other is provided by statements of opinion from Cummings and his family, police, journalists and other witnesses”

    The only solid evidence is provided by BBC Journalist, Emily Maitlis, who said “Dominic Cummings broke the rules”. So a Labour MP is accusing Boris of withholding evidence that he is innocent, but Emily Maitlis has solid evidence that he broke the rules.

    Solid evidence from the BBC comprises the ten elements of “BBC Fake News”. (1) Assumption (2) Speculation (3) Guessing (4) Supposition (5) Hypothesis (6) Belief (7) Consensus (8) Suggestion (9) Conjecture and (10) Groupthink. All said with great emotion. As Emily says with great emotional insight into the thoughts of her part of the country, Notting Hill “The country can see that and it’s shocked the Government cannot.” But Richard Pinder says with hope for the end of censorship “I hope the patriotic parts of country can eventually see that and is deeply shocked that the BBC cannot.”

    Guest – Another Susan is at it this a.m. Susan Hume is on Toady, weaving together what she thinks Boris said yesterday, that will condemn him ‘in the public eye’.
    She replays ‘move on’, over and over again , in a mocking refrain.
    Day 7 of beeb’s anti Cummings/Boris campaign. Or is it day 8?
    Nick R. picks up Simon Hoare MP (Con), thick as a brick, as he does Labour’s job for them. In Dorset we saw beauty spots filled up cos DC went Durham. “People see nothing exceptional” from DC in the garden. Simon is surprised that the PM is ‘digging in’. Never mind, he will now appear regularly on beeb.
    Nick is delighted. Startup of Surkeer’s next election campaign is in full swing, but not using Labour MPs in the main. Toady thinks traitor Tory MPs are a far more potent force.
    My feeling is that if Simon is not happy in blue Labour, he is always free to move onto red Labour. It does sound as if he would feel more at home. Should just resign his seat.

    Where Jonathan Ashworth is currently telling us what a good PM Surkeer would make, and that HE would definitely have sacked HIS adviser, in the same circumstances.
    A relentless drumbeat of partisan aggression from Toady. That is where the beauty of off-message Tory MPs comes in. Toady can now be partisan without obviously trotting out only Labour and LimpDumb MPs.

    Hmmm….. Stephen Kinnock (Labour MP) blatantly breaches lockdown rules to attend a birthday party. The BBC hardly reacts at all. Does Keir Starmer and his party immediately demand his resignation as an MP, and claim that he will be responsible for any deaths arising from other people deciding that they might as well breach the lockdown ? No chance.

    Tahir Ali (Labour MP) blatantly breaches lockdown rules to attend a funeral with about 100 others. The BBC hardly reacts at all. Does Keir Starmer and his party immediately demand his resignation as an MP, and claim that he will be responsible for any deaths arising from other people deciding that they might as well breach the lockdown ?

Does Keir Starmer and his party immediately demand his resignation as an MP, and claim that he will be responsible for any deaths arising from other people deciding that they might as well breach the lockdown ? No chance.

    Dominic Cummings (Adviser to the Conservative Prime MInister) does his best to protect his son from harm, works within the guidelines for the lockdown, and takes care to avoid contact with other people in the process. Keir Starmer and his party immediately demands his resignation from his job and claim that he will be responsible for any deaths arising from other people deciding that they might as well breach the lockdown .

    The BBC fuels the fire with only one of these cases for days on end.

    But this isn’t political, claim Keir Starmer and his party and, of course, the BBC laps it up and adds more fuel to the fire.

    What a country we have become.

She is still working but when asked, she only commented that her wages didn’t even cover their rent. She has two kids and gets no benefits for them ….. what age are they again ?

      As I said, these questions were not pressed. Compare and contrast the hysteria from Mishal Husain yesterday when trying to shout down a government minister.

      Solicitously questioning the Pakistani lady obviously fits the narrative, though.

        Showing precisely why we all need DC.

          They were right off the mark when being allowed to play with drones and other toys, though.

        I salute you sir.

        And yet there is a serious point here. We amateurs on this website seem able to provide more evidence-based truth than does a massive statist broadcaster receiving £4 bn a year of our money.

        Money which makes them totally immune from the effects of the pandemic, which is to their ‘journalists’ if anything a handy job creation exercise.

        Meanwhile over at ITV and the like they are wondering how they will survive as advertising revenue dries up. OK so you might not like Piers and Susanna but at least they have to provide their own funding.

    It seems riot season has started in the USA; Minneapolis.

    From what I understand, someone was shot and killed by cops. I think they may have deliberately killed the victim. Action is being taken against the cop (s).
    But that hasn’t stopped the mob gathering. They’re setting fire to buildings and looting others. Cue the man running away with a huge TV in his arms.
    I think there might also be a disturbance in California.
    Now for the Black whatever crowd and Antifa thugs to resume their animalistic antics.
    I wonder how long before the copycat riots start. Where will they begin here in England?

    It might be a long hot summer this year.

      Don’t worry it will all be DC’s fault – he gave them permission to loot.. it is ‘alleged’ by the BBC 🙂

      Looting is deep in their psyche, I regret to observe. Riots frequently degenerate into mob looting, whether in the US,GB,SA or elsewhere.
      One wonders whether some riots have nothing to do with the issue they purport to be a response to, but actually hope to be a cover for looting.
      ‘Democratic’ shopping..? Easier to do when the cops are trying to cope with the riots, which -in turn- are meant to provide a vague sense of ‘legitimacy’ due to ‘grievances’?
      Seen anything you like in the shops lately? Well, it’s easy and free, if you follow guidelines, and it will be a riot!

      Why are opposition MPS trying to negotiate with the EU (illegally ?, since they are, by definition, not Her Majesty’s Government) – and why are the BBC not down on this like a ton of bricks – after all, it’s a breach of the rules, isn’t it ? And we all know how important following the rules is for the BBC by now, don’t we ?

      And surely such actions will cause people to justifiably start just disobeying any rules, won’t it ?

        Richard, If it isn’t illegal to negotiate with Barnier and EU by the opposition then it should be. We have a government negotiator who has been instructed by the government on our behalf, these load mouth buffoons should be silenced. You can see desperation setting in now, they will do anything and try to take anyone down to get us to agree to an extension. They dont have long to act.
        As for the BBC interfering, well that’s not the agenda is it? After realising that is why Dominic Cummings was desperate to get back to downing street after his illness with Boris being out of action when the dark forces of the civil service and the opposition were ready to take over negotiations it all makes sense now.
        This is like a war being played out between us and the forces of evil. Boris had better keep his wits about him, nothing is safe until we get to July.

          Has anyone questioned why the democratic vote to leave the EU has taken four years to happen ? Its because there has been a deliberate intent to delay and sabotage it by certain politicians and media operatives, no doubt helped by ‘external forces’ alien to our shores.

      You certainly wouldn’t get many skiers or football fans or Cheltenham festival goers to go there on the off chance would you.

      (Watch ‘Fauda’ on Netflix rather than Al Beeb, much more realistic and entertaining.)

          I attended the engagement party of a Greek Orthodox friend’s daughters there in 1997. He was by then a long-term UK resident. He kindly paid for my ticket; the interrogation at Tel Aviv airport was not as bad as Fauda, but not fun.
          What was fun was a breakfast of falafel in the best establisment in Gaza with his very good friend, a top man in the Palestinian police force, and his 4 bodyguards who sat in the large booth with Kalashnikovs on their knees, scrutinising the entrance either directly or via the mirror behind us.

    ‘Dozens of travel firms and hotel owners have said the UK should scrap plans to force visitors to quarantine on arrival’

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52819575

    One suspects those lobbying the government for our borders to be as porous as possible will be pushing at an open door – if you’ll excuse the pun.

    Let’s see how this goes – whether the government does indeed give way and whether our liberal media, until now so keen on lockdown, screams and howls if these quarantine restrictions are eased?

      ‘This is what Fascism looks like.’ Followed up by a photo of Emily Maitliss…. a representative of the publicly funded (by government edict) broadcaster basically telling us what we need to think and feel, acting as judge, jury and executioner over someone they patently hate. Yup – that just about sums up what Fascism will do.

    God, I wish we could have a Bias Sky. Fatty Boulton is really going for the jugular at his Conservative interviewee. She had come on to talk about Test and Trace, and then he redirected the questions to DC, his questioning then verged on the bullying. Disgraceful.

      The response to the MSM swamp rats should be along the lines:
      I’m not going to discuss Mr Cummings. If you choose to obsess about him, that’s your problem. Not mine.

      If the MSM rat persists, terminate the interview. Better still, don’t be interviewed by them. Then they can make up lies without the inconvenience of having to edit what has been said by the interviewee. Less stressful for everyone, including the MSM rat’s audience.

        Totally agree John, tv news interviewing has become an uncomfortable and embarrassing watch. All the journalistic anchors, regardless of channel, just want to hang, draw and quarter the people who have willingly agreed to go on air. After watching Boulton’s aggressive attack on a woman MP this morning, I’d be surprised if she didn’t reach for the Scotch afterwards. There should be a boycott of all stations by potential interviewees until journalists can get a grip on their emotions and bias.
