How interesting. I happened to be listening to the BBC Today programme this morning and around 6.55am there was an item on the French Presidential election. Those of you will follow these things will know that the BBC is cheer leading for the Socialist candidate, Hollande. He has said that if elected he sees “finance as the enemy”, he will raise taxes and he will employ tens of thousands of extra public sector workers. You can see why he appeals to the BBC. Anyway, the BBC item concerned itself with Sarkozy’s declared intention to run. Naturally his chances were given as being low (despite the latest poll showing the significant narrowing of Hollande’s lead). Then came the moment. Whilst discussing which candidates would get through to the second round of the Presidential election contest the BBC journalist (Hugh Sykes, I think) said “We wouldn’t want to see the National Front through to the second round” He quickly corrected himself to say “France wouldn’t want to see the National Front through to the second round.” Now I carry no torch for Le Pen and his wretched Party BUT I was disgusted at this clear insertion of BBC prejudice against that Party. Surely ALL parties should be treated fairly and with impartiality? I went looking the link for you but guess what? It is not there yet items before it and after it are available to link. Looks like a black hole has swallowed up this blatant instance of bias. The “We” is the term the BBC are most sensitive about using since it reveals the groupthink and they much prefer to hide behind euphemisms. In this instance, it was blurted out but it is now covered up!
