FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

Monday

At least they're being honest

You know, I can point to multiple examples of mainstream media left-wing bias. But, some people still refuse to recognize the truth. Perhaps one of these media outlets should come right out and admit it.

Well…one has.

It’s interesting that many on the political left point to foreign news agencies as truly reliable. After all, they aren’t a part of the “Corporate Media” that only looks out for the interests of the evil rich. Of course, the “Corporate Media” line doesn’t hold up to the slightest bit of scrutiny when you turn on the news and hear story after story after story demogoging the wealthy. But, I digress.

Many on the left put their utmost faith in foreign media outlets like the BBC. They can be trusted!

Well, the BBC decided to do a little internal investigating. It attempted to measure its own objectivity in its reporting practices. Guess what they found:



The BBC has failed to promote proper debate on major political issues because of the inherent liberal culture of its staff.

Interesting.



The report claims that coverage of single-issue political causes, such as climate change and poverty, can be biased - and is particularly critical of Live 8 coverage, which it says amounted to endorsement.

It warns that celebrities must not be pandered to and allowed to hijack the BBC schedule.

The report concludes BBC staff must be more willing to challenge their own beliefs.

A staff impartiality seminar held last year is also documented in the report, at which executives admitted they would broadcast images of the Bible being thrown away but not the Koran, in case Muslims were offended.

During the seminar a senior BBC reporter criticized the corporation for being anti-American.



So, the BBC investigated itself and found blatant attempts to promote left-wing causes, a lack of honest reporting on huge political issues such as Global Warming, pandering to celebrities with an agenda to push, disregard for anti-Christian messages while simultaneously avoiding any appearance of anti-Muslim messages, and anti-Americanism.

Yep. That sounds like left-wing bias to me. Now, I would never expect the American media to run similar investigations of their own reporting practices. But, if they did, I’m sure that the results would be strikingly similar.
