The BBC, shorn from market regulation is a bastion of smoked salmon leftists who pay themselves obscene salaries

In Their Own Words – Biased BBC

The Conservatives are about to seriously take on this nest of smug, self satisfied parasite propagandists :

John Whittingdale to force BBC to reveal stars' pay


BBC ready to censor the Baftas if too many stars criticise the government

Why John Whittingdale's White Paper is a Tory coup on our beloved BBC - Kevin Maguire - Mirror Online

RTE talent will be watching closely

It was very pro Labour in the 1990s but now it comes across as anti Corbyn and pro Israel now just like the Tories and Blairites. It's disturbing the Tories want to gain more control over it including appointing stooges to its upper regions.

Back to sleep. Dream sweet dreams of McDowell, Lucy, IBEC etc.

Then wake up in a cold sweat when you have an epiphany of where those voodoo economics take society, turn on the TV to Irish Psychics Live (sic) & see where they take TV.

The BBC is the greatest broadcaster in the world. Ever.

Spot the oxymoron, though a few very honourable exceptions.

Corbin is a fruitcake, it seems the blair/brown years destroyed the labour party, much like the irish labour party under Gilmore and rabbite, burton and Kelly was just the icing on the cake but the irish labour party was already finished when they took over, of course immigration o'riordain didn't help matters much.

The BBC should be fully privatised and the license fee abolished. It's a bloated left wing organisation with a small number of closet Tory supporters.

A State Broadcaster will never be "taken on"; it's too much of a useful tool for government.

Plus, the subtle message/threat from the BBC & from RTE is - 'you're either with us or against us'.

The BBC is a load of overhyped rubbish that seems to fill its schedule with programmes about buying antiques, selling antiques, buying houses, rebuilding houses, selling houses, cookery shows, shows that show bits of old cookery shows, not-so-subtle propaganda (witness their Scottish referendum coverage), mindnumbingly boring quiz shows etc etc. Mind you, most tv is crap but at least other channels don't usually get ideas above their (tv) station! :)

The BBC is a mostly spineless organisation, that is currently bending over backwards to accommodate their Tory masters.

So as usual according to some the BBC is a bastion of loony leftism, and according to others it's a right wing extension of Camerons cabinet.

It must be doing something right.

It's bizarre to have Whittingdale deciding on this after the story of his affair with an escort - whom he claims he never knew was am escort.

The BBC is greatly over-rated. It is very far from being the organisation that gave us Dennis Potter. Its drama is mediocre, derivative and second class nowadays and its other programming equally wretched. This is the broadcaster which made a fetish out of Top Gear.

And its political coverage is abysmal - totally sold on the neo-liberal consensus and terrifed of the govt. The ones that set the licence fee.

If it's totally sold on the liberal consensus why would it need to be terrified of the government ?

Now now Wes, you know the answer to that - for the same reason we have Socialism for the banks and Neo-Liberalism for eveyone else ...

Nothing worse than a nest of spineless overpaid workshy leftist propagandaists.

Some sort of pest control firm is probably advisable to clear the building.

Knee deep in gayers and overly sympathetic to this climate nonsense.
Weather alarmism is the new religion of the middle class. Marx would have something to say about that I bet.

I gave up on the BBC after they allowed a Lexus appear on Top Gear. Bloody foreign cars coming over here with their efficient engines and low emissions! Boycotting them ever since.

You all missed the point of the BBC, it's owned and operated by the British government, it is simply the propaganda arm of said government, don't take it seriously....it's not a serious organization. It's a fraud. Read books. Turn off the TV.

But don't forget to pay your licence.
