BBC BIAS ROW

I’m not sure this is even news – given that most of us are painfully aware of the BBC bias towards leftist lunacy.

A senior BBC executive is being accused of political bias after calling for the corporation to promote ‘left of centre’ thinking. Ben Stephenson, controller of drama commissioning, made the comment on a blog for a left-wing newspaper.

The Conservatives have called for him to apologise and to retract the remarks.  Trying desperately to neutralise his remarks, Stephenson has claimed he was just calling for more diverse opinions and out-of-the-box ideas: ‘We need to foster peculiarity, idiosyncrasy, stubborn-mindedness, left-of-centre thinking.’

Sure.  Oh my G-d – what was that big pink creature that just went diving past my window??? It was a kosher pig.

And Stephenson’s pitiful wriggling is fooling nobody. Shadow Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has stated that the comments were a ‘clear breach’ of the BBC’s impartiality obligations.

The BBC being impartial?  Can anyone remember when this last happened…?

  1. HI LEE 🙂

    Yes, you are quite right – Ben Stephenson is simply confirming what virtually all of us already know!!!

  2. I’m confused. It seems that Ben Stephenson is just saying that the BBC needs to continue on its current course.

    And what exactly is “drama commissioning” and “Shadow Culture”? These sound very ominous.
