THE BBC - A DISGRACE TO THE NATIONBY COLIN BULLENOn many issues, including theEU, the BBC ensures that the public ispresented with slanted views whereverthey turn.I have written before about the bias and stupidity tobe found in the British media but increasingly thatdisplayed by the BBC eclipses the worst efforts ofthe print media. All Eurorealists will be aware of thecareful analysis made by Lord Pearson of the wayin which the BBC fails in its duty of impartialityand also of the way the arrogant, overpaid bureaucratswho run that organisation patronise those whocomplain, while making no effort to answer thecharges truthfully. However it is not merely on thematter of the EU that our so called national broadcasterblatantly supports one side of an argument asit can always be found on the side of the politicallycorrect chattering classes whatever the issue involved.For example, the questions as to whetherconsistent global warming is taking place and, if itis, whether is has anything to do human activity areobviously two of the mostimportant facing us todaybut, according to the BBC,these matters are settled andanyone who disagrees withthe line they constantly peddleare either fools orknaves. This attitude can be seen in the way theBBC asserts that the vast majority of climatechange scientists are agreed that humanity is toblame for the heating the world yet, as been shownby Christopher Booker and others, many of thosedescribed in this manner are not experts in climateat all, while a great number who are actually qualifiedin the field, but who reject the claims of thewarmists, are totally ignored.On a completely different matter, thequestion of religion, the BBC has once againproved itself biased and guilty of promoting its ownagenda. While it is true that church attendance hasfallen in recent years it is also true that the valueswhich underpin our society are Christian and thatthe presence of some minority faiths does not alterthe fact that the overwhelming majority of Britishpeople still consider themselves to be Christian. Forthe BBC the existence of other groups, howeverfew in number, justifies calling Britain a multi-faithsociety and allows them to marginalise Christianitywherever they can. Their head of religious broadcastinghas declared that Christianity should not begiven preference and, when confronted by objections,says "We'll listen to what they say but we'reclear that we know what we're doing and we'll stickto that". What arrogance. Of course when all themajor religions agree on certain moral values thenone can also rely on the BBC to take the other side,whether it be abortion, marriage or the role of religionin society.When reporting upon any conflict involvingBritish or Western forces the BBC alsodoes its best to undermine morale and cast doubtson the rightness of the cause. If such an attitudehad existed during the Second World War it couldhave cost us victory.On this and other issues, including theEU, the BBC ensures that the public is presentedwith slanted views wherever they turn. Althoughoccasionally they have allowed Nigel Farage to appearon Question Time, the vast majority of thepanellists can always be relied upon to take the lineespoused by the politically correct, giving the viewersthe impression that those such as Nigel are in atiny minority when in fact the opposite is true. Oneof the regular contributors to the five minute slot onRadio 4 every Sunday morning, in which commentatorsgive a personal opinion on current affairs,was Frederick Forsyth but the BBC were unable tostomach the truth about the EU and put an end tohis talks, while one of theworst programmes is Radio4's Broadcasting Housewhich makes a habit ofsneering at anyone who disagreeswith the acceptedwisdom and ensures thatmost of so called celebrities who review the paperscan be relied upon to take the same attitude. In additiontheir so called amusing pieces frequently deridethose who advocate patriotic or moral positions.Even in little things the BBC delightsin taking the politically correct line, whether it beinsisting on Centigrade instead of Fahrenheit in itsweather forecasts or the use of the metric system onall occasions, even though the latter means little tomost of the British people.The fact that we are informed that theBBC places advertisements for staff only in newspaperssuch as the Guardian and the Independentgoes a long way to explaining why it takes the positionsit does but it is clear that, should we eversucceed in electing a Eurorealist government, ahouse cleaning of that organisation must be amongits most important priorities. They have been underminingthis country for far too long.
