@IanDunt @BBCNews Just watched the 17.10 News Bulletin and now the 22.10. The piece about the #PeoplesVoteMarch opened with a statement saying that it was ‘THOUGHT to be the largest Brexit demonstration to date’. Face slap. Also time was given to #Farage's 'much smaller demonstration
@IanDunt @BBCNews but one of a series' and further time given 10? Leave supporters who were on the march. In 17.10 2 mins was given to the March, 1 min to Leave / Ukip events. Ridiculous. Also an interview with Farage but no i'view with anyone from #PeoplesVote. Or from Labour or Cons hierarchy
@IanDunt @BBCNews reacting to the March. This is abysmal reporting. Totally missing the real story - which is the size of the march, so large it is almost without historical precedent, despite lacking the organising power of a political party or major charity. Also no assessment of its potential
@IanDunt @BBCNews impact. Rather these micro-moments of Leave / UKIP (eg a political party) campaigning made the reporter feel entitled to end with some seemingly anodyne statement re 'how divided we still are'. As the whole of the debate the march is participating in is about how opinion has
@IanDunt @BBCNews developed and shifted since 2016 - and, on the evidence of this march it may well have shifted conclusively – this analysis is basically a #Leave talking point. Shameful to the point of being boneheaded. So #BBCNews in my opinion absolutely failed to cover the march.
@IanDunt @BBCNews And that’s serious - if you can't give fair coverage for a march of this scale, you are damaging not protecting democracy. I also noticed that even at 3pm, the march was the 2nd news story of the day on the website, behind news that the Turks 'might' release new information
@IanDunt @BBCNews re #Khashoggi. e.g. 2nd behind the 'news' that there 'might' be some other news on another news story! Shameful. More than half a million people gathered calling for a specific political action. And #BBCnews failed to mark how striking this was nor what the consequences might be
@IanDunt @BBCNews Is a #2ndreferendum now more justified more likely? What’s next for the movement? BBC never even asked!
