The other day I mentioned my deep desire for the BBC to be sold off to the highest bidder. For years now it has been living off its old, former and decent reputation as a strictly neutral purveyor of news but that was then. Now, it is a heavily slanted, opinionated purveyor of metropolitan group-think which the British people have to pay for whether they like it or not.
Today, Guido offers the demonstrable proof of BBC bias in the Brexit debate by analysing the political nature of the 'guests' who feature on the three main news discussion programmes - Question Time, Politics Live and Any Questions.
Since the start of the political season in September, 72% of the official panel guests across the three shows have been Remainers, while a mere 28% have been Leavers. A whopping 87% of the panels had a Remainer majority – only 13% of shows had a panel equally balanced between Leavers and Remainers. Not once have Leavers outnumbered Remainers. [My emphasis]
Sell it off to my ex-best friend, 'Rupe', or better still, just give it to him!
