BBC Libdem bias

Posted by davidburbage on October 15, 2008


Here the BBC give higher billing to the comments of the Libdems (popular vote around 15% nationally) than the Conservatives (popular vote around 45%).

The quotes from Chris Huhne get 6 paragraphs at the end, whereas Dominic Grieve’s get just 2.

EDIT : Here’s another one; David Laws goes first, Michael Gove at the end.


EDIT 2: The BBC Education journalists can’t even get their apostrophes in the right place. World class.

Shadow children’s secretary Michael Gove welcomed Mr Ball’s announcement to reduce the amount of testing.

    Bit obvious as the LibDem party spend 80% of their time attacking the Tories, and when push comes to shove are willing to join and support NuLabor to keep the Tories out of government.
    Since the bbc is truly biased toward our incompetent government their bias to the LibDems fits their agenda.

    Assuming the apostrophe error is supposed to be in the itallicised quopte I can’t see the error. Are you sure you know how to use apostrophes correctly?
