I was more prodding with a stick those that in recent weeks would have it that the BBC are totally biased against Brexit.
But with MPs and the opposition wary of talking in any way against Brexit there is only the media that ask the questions of those leading the way... it appears as bias to those that see leave as meaning leave no matter what but really it may largely just be confirmation bias on their part when it appears the questions are unreasonable.
Politicians that talk about second refendum get short shift when pinned down by the BBC. On the weekly review of the BBC on a Sunday morning they regularly get accused of bias and they reply with the usual excuses ... more or less similar to the above. It doesnít mean there isnít bias of course and I may be too laid back in not accepting the level that most on here see, if so I understand but choose to see the BBC as still the best news organisation of any that Iíve watched (and could understand).. Australia, New Zealand, USA or South Africa.
Anyway didnít mean to cause rancor amongst the troops, just some food for thought on the BBC coverage
