@JosephineFormby @afneil So Neil is not biased and @OwenJones84 who does not present a #BBC flagship programme is?
1. He was a member of The Glasgow University Conservative Club
2, He was a member of the Federation of Conservative Students.
3. He briefly worked for the Conservative Party
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 4. He is the current chairman of Press Holdings Media Group, whose titles include The Spectator, and the ITP Media. The Spectator is known for its leanings to the Right!
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 In 2018 the The Spectator published an article online headlined ‘In praise of the Wehrmacht.’ Despite the copy being quickly changed, the original was screen-grabbed and shared on Twitter. I assume you know about the Wehrmacht?
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 The author of the article has been well known for his right wing articles. Taki In 2007 took the time to write a piece: "In praise of Mussolini"
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 Taki also referred to the New York Times as the "Big Bagel Times," Can you see why @OwenJones84 was questioning The Spectator's role in British Politics. Neil had to try and shut Owen up because he was attacking rag that Neil presides over! but let us continue with Taki!
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 Taki also wrote that "Orientals ... have larger brains and higher IQ scores. Blacks are at the other pole." In another, he described black American bastketball players as having "arms hanging below their knees and tongues sticking out". Boris Johnson had to apologise for him
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 In the context of the discussion @OwenJones84 had every right to raise concerns about The Spectator. People should also be concerned that a #BBC flagship political review programme is presented by a person with #Tory leanings and chairs a #Conservative leaning news group!
@JosephineFormby @afneil @OwenJones84 But wait its all Owens Fault! @ThreadReaderApp unroll
