Even if you ignore brexit for a second, does the fact that the nation has to fund a biased broadcaster in order to watch a football match on Sky Sports (for example), not take away from Britain’s image as a democracy?

How do we persuade countries like North Korea towards impartial media coverage if the BBC can’t manage it?

I'm extremely surprised that none of the political parties (especially the ones who claim they represent the poor) are promising to abolish the license fee in order to make it easier for people to pay other taxes to fund far more important things like the NHS and housing projects.

The BBC was biased towards an objectively better choice for the British economy.Maybe they needed to factor in more voices from individuals wanting to blame the EU for their rubbish lives.


I think on the whole plumbers, builders, bus drivers, carpenters, electricians, plasterers etc. etc. were perfectly happy with their "rubbish lives" (your words not mine) until the floodgates were opened to the workforce of Eastern European EU member states driving down their wages to a point where they could no longer feed their families and pay the bills.
You don't have to be affected by this to show solidarity with British workers who fell victim to this non-negotiable EU policy that ruined their lives and that is one reason I and millions of others voted leave. It's called empathy, you should look it up.

As for your usual patronising comments about working hard and bettering ones self - You have often said on here you were brought up on a sink estate that your parents couldn't get out of so you of all people must be well aware that no matter how hard people work to advance themselves in reality that is not quite so simple.

I do believe the tv licence should be either a subscription service (Netflix has been proven to work) or means tested.

That graphic shows that only 44% supported leaving the EU and 46% were against.

Unless I'm missing something, doesn't that survey prove that the majority were against leaving the EU? Or, alternatively, the survey is a pile of dog*** which you are quite happy to quote as a freddie fact?

The bbc chose to interview experts rather than Harry from down the pub. So clearly it was biased.

It might have been that they could see the writing on the wall and acted responsibly. Accusing them of being biased

Almost nobody loves the licence fee it is a tax why would they ?
the Tories do but they hate the BBC and in its remit is freedom of speech so why not ?

Labour proposed a scrapping of the fee about 15 years ago

TV licence is a tax on the poor . Now the government has created £1200 fee before you can claim employment discrimination to employment tribunal to help their rich businessman friends.

I'm not a fan of the BBC....

But I can find 100s of "reports" online and in printed press that assured me smoking was safe.

Occasionally the writers of "reports" have their own agendas and funding....

Do you think the same should happen at the general election? Only let educated, employed people vote?

And regarding education, what if someone isnt educated about how a democracy works. Should they be allowed to vote?

To believe the Brexit decision was wrong is to be willing to believe that 52% of British people aren't smart enough to make an informed decision on a complex issue.

I'm just surprised that anyone finds this surprising. The BBC has always had its own agenda.

Of course what do you expect, They are the propaganda machine of the hypocritical luvvies and private school lineages that arrogantly think they are our superiors and masters, They have become a very Evil institution, Liars meddlers and egomaniacal, Apart from the programmes made by David attenborough and suchlike it is not worth watching at all.
They should stop taking the **** out of the public and drop the Tv licence to £50 a year and stop hassling people with lies and threats of prosecution through their Capita extortion racketeer criminal partners or sattelite tv providers collect the fees by optional ad ons to tv packages, This hounding of the public for licencing and the costs of that should stop it is pathetic.

It only CONFIRMS things if you're credulous and not very smart frankly.

My thought process: They 'analysed' a few episodes of the Today programme? That doesn't really justify the headline at all and why did they pick such an odd sample?
Who are news-watch anyway? Let's have a quick look at their website... Oh right, it's just Eurosceptic Tory blog posing as something else.

Such insights can be yours in as little as 2 minutes with an open enquiring mind.

While your at news-watch's straight-as-an-arrer site be sure to catch:

All news organisations and media companies have biases. That's a very simple concept to understand for most people.

The BBC skews towards educated, socially liberal individuals because that's the type of people who are qualified for such a job in such an organisation.

That's why you fail to identify with much of their output.

The only thing expert about the so called experts is how hypocritically expert those professional troughers are.
Unless you can produce concrete time tested facts in simple English then all it boils down to is possibles or probables.
So far the experts are wrong on many fronts so stop with your condescending harry down the pub belittling cheap shots.

There's lies damned lies and statistics and you've proven anyone can twist things to suit their agenda.

What those figures tell you is that EU leavers have stayed pretty resolute despite the rumblings from the bully boy EU. It also shows us that half those who voted remain only believe in democrisy when it suits. Much like the EU really.

Sure feel free to get your operation done at the pub then, forget these doctors.

Or ask your mate down the pub to build your house, rather than a proper contractor or architect.

The anti intellectualism sentiment is frankly the most dangerous thing to come out of the referendum debate - Even more than the racism and xenophobic elements, which can be challenged by reasoned and critical debate. It's comments like yours that has lowered the tone for the next critical phase of leaving the EU.

No surgeon has a 100% record. Does that mean that you should ignore their advice? It's a stupid argument that doesn't live up to any basic logic.

so the BBC counteracted nearly all of the rest of the media that were spreading lies about immigration, all the money saved going to the NHS and blaming health & safety nonsense on Europe. Personally I thought they were pretty much spot on, they even went to Iceland to report on the only other nation to leave the EU and how they have progressed since.

No, it goes deeper than that. You'd have to believe the rules of democracy do not work as there is a percentage of the voter population that are unlikely to agree with you.

You shouldn't hate the players, you should hate the game. Or accept the argument is flawed. Either is fine.

It's got nothing to do with agreeing with positions. I'm simply suggesting that the majority of people in this country aren't capable of understanding complex economic issues.

You may object to that notion because you may feel you're in that majority of people but I'm not saying it's necessarily those people's fault. The education system in this country isn't great and people's own limitations aren't always their fault.

I actually agree with you but there is no other way of doing it fairly and yet still live in a democracy. Educating them rather than filling them with fear before a referendum or general election would be a sensible start.

Unfortunately the leading parties lead by example by acting like idiots far too often...
