@BBC I should give this a plug:

Emily @maitlis joins @franunsworth & DG Tony Hall in the Guardian/Observer labelling anyone who observes a clear pattern of Establishment/Tory bias at the #BBC 'conspiracy theorists' theguardian.com/media/2019/dec… #BBCbias
@maitlis @franunsworth In my recent letter to DG Tony Hall, I point out that the term 'conspiracy theory' used & abused by #BBC staff is a CIA construct, employed to close down critical public debate docs.google.com/document/d/1T5…
#BBC license fee payers should ask themselves why a succession of BBC management & senior staff are writing articles in the @guardian, using CIA devices designed to shut down public debate on #BBCbias?

I've had enough of Senior #BBC Management & journalists gaslighting the British public & refusing to apologise for the BBC's appalling #GeneralElection2019ً coverage. Complaint letter to Director Tony Hall here: docs.google.com/document/d/1T5… #BBCbias
@bbclaurak @Renegade_Inc @nw_nicholas @medialens @BBCNewsPR @TheMendozaWoman @LabourLeft @SouthHackneyLab @ta_mills @D_Raval A key point here is the #BBC are completely out of touch with their audience, partly because BBC complaints & monitoring is palmed off to outsourcing crooks #CAPITA. Send your GE2019 #BBCbias complaints direct to BBC management instead👇docs.google.com/document/d/1T5…
@bbclaurak @Renegade_Inc @nw_nicholas @medialens @BBCNewsPR @TheMendozaWoman @LabourLeft @SouthHackneyLab @ta_mills @D_Raval Here is Tony Benn's 5 tests for those in power. #BBC top brass answer public complaints with nothing but contempt, because they don't represent our interests, and are in no way accountable to us. #BBCbias cc @jimwaterson

THREAD

For all those denying any #BBCBias on @BBCNews & @BBCPolitics shows, here's some of the formal 'corrections & clarifications' to "mistakes" made by the @BBC in 2019, which all *completely coincidentally* helped the Tories by damaging @UKLabour's reputation.
The audience laughing at Boris Johnson during the @bbcquestiontime Leaders Debate about his response to a question about 'trust' was *accidentally* edited out.
When Boris Johnson completely messed up Remembrance day by setting off to early then laying a wreath upside-down, the @BBC *accidentally* showed footage from the previous year.

Also, Fiona Bruce on @bbcquestiontime saying Vote Leave did NOT break the law - when they DID.

THREAD : This is a full on National Scandal.
I've gone back and looked at BBC's mendacious and cynical use of biased 'vox pops' during #GE2017 all trying to portray one message "disaffected Labour voters who'll vote Tory"

Heres a wee game. I’ve just searched the BBC website for a few things

First: a search for ‘Scottish Conservative party conference’. Here’s what appears

The BBC are on it, and have information up about the May 2019 2019 conference, which they will be covering live on BBC1
Next I searched for ‘Scottish Labour Party conference’. Here’s what the BBC website brings up for that search

The BBC tells us it covered the ‘Scottish’ Labour Party’s March 2019 conference live on BBC1

So they’re making an effort to help us stay informed about our politics...
Next I searched for ‘SNP party conference’. It’s on in Edinburgh this weekend

🤔 I was curious to see what coverage would be available for this sold out event, as there are major constitutional debates planned for the weekend.

Here’s what the ‘impartial’ BBC website brings up

A completely inadequate response to the petition. How does this address:
- Overspending
- Lies spread by secret social media adverts
- misconduct in public office (referendum lies)
- Press and media (partic. BBC) lies and bias
We need a #BrexitInquiry

This is not just about the referendum result, it's about ALL the abuses and wrong doings that have led us to a Government that wants to implement brexit
A BREXIT #PublicInquiry is needed, not a referendum inquiry.
/2
Take the #SecretFacebookAds. A previous gov't petition response put forward the idea that it's okay for political campaigners to lie, because it's up to the opposition to challenge them. On that basis alone, the FB ads should be banned, you can't challenge a lie you can't see. /3

#BBCBias off the scale on #bbcbreakfast
The segment was about 4 minutes, the clip below is a short edit of a propaganda piece. No fact checking or asking for evidence by the presenter who clearly has her own agenda given this soft interview.
More details on this THREAD..
(1/6)
Bias highlights (1)
- Progress described as a “Labour think tank”. They’re NOT. They organise in Labour, have contributed to candidate slates in internal elections etc. And crucially have been vehemently against Corbyn from day one. No reference to this or questioning of motives
Bias highlights (2)
Progress person allowed to say:
- Labour has taken no action on anti semitism (this is patently false, why not questioned the way #VictoriaLIVE did?
- Bullying widespread through Labour. No asking for what basis or evidence there is for saying this.

Dear @BBCNews

I am keen to know more about why you pay controversial “charity” IEA to come on @BBCNewsnight in front of millions & speak about how badly the NHS is doing & how it requires an “overhaul.”
Could you tell us more?

#BBCswitchoff #BBCBias
Lots going on for the IEA at present. Why is the @BBCNews paying them to appear on television? [yet not paying other thinktanks?]

See .@CHPIthinktank report

Come on, then. As it's 8am Sunday, and you're all still in bed, let's do this.
If you can summon up the strength to click through to the article it opens with these two lines.
We'll come back to the 1st sentence in a bit, but the 2nd one is important.

This study is measuring bias by counting how often Tory- and Labour-supporting newspaper stories are reviewed on the BBC.
