I'm utterly sick at the BBCs bias over Brexit and how we are expected to pay through a licence to listen to it.

Unfortunately I don't frequent Facebook or any other big outlet to promote a petition to have the BBC lose its fee. I would like to know the process though.


It is pretty scary when you delve into why there is such an anti Brexit bias. Perhaps the BBC should be disclosing past revenue interests to show that they are not vested interests?

EU FUNDING OF THE BBC
EDM #791
Tabled 28 January 2008
2007-08 Session
That this House notes that soft loans and payments amounting to 258 million euros over the last five years were paid by the EU to the BBC; believes that such payments compromise the independence and objectivity of the BBC on EU issues; further notes that the BBC benefited by a cash-equivalent of approximately 39 million euros which is made up of 20.4 million actual saved interest on loan facilities of 240 million, 2.5 million in grants, 14.6 million to BBC World and 1.7 million euros in indirect payments; further notes that there are, in addition, undisclosed sums in respect of joint projects; further believes that these substantial benefits may offend against the BBC's Royal Charter, which demands independence, and also its editorial guidelines which state that the BBC should not `accept funds from any organisation whose interests or actions could raise doubts about the objectivity of programming'; and cites, as continuing evidence of BBC bias in its coverage of EU affairs, the BBC's refusal to broadcast coverage of the National Pro-Referendum Rally at Westminster on 27th October 2007; therefore calls on the Government to establish an independent inquiry into EU funding of the BBC and its impact on the BBC's objectivity on European matters and current debate over a referendum on the EU C?onstitution; and congratulates the Campaign for an Independent Britain for its initiative in uncovering this information.

May I suggest searching for the Holy Grail rather than expect fairness in any media outlet? They all have their own agenda.

The BBC is governed in what they can charge for the license and what targets they must pursue by HMG.
If you are looking who pulls their strings you don't need to look as far as Europe.

Really? I think you need to look further thatn HMG in any case just not this one. As the funding issue shows.....IMHO

What facts? Please explain where you have seen facts? (John's comment isn't fact its an unsupported opinion. Whether correct or otherwise is not the issue; just like most of your facts...)

The facts are... the BBC takes money from the EU to peddle EU propoganda and then charges the UK public for the prviledge...

Early Day Motion states that the House recognises that the BBC was/is largely funded by the European Union. Those are facts. This while the BBC portrays itself as holding the moral high ground, yet ignoring the democratic result of the referendum. To further compound the insult it takes licence payers fees while promoting a remain perspective.

As Harry says:

Thoroughly biased bunch of c!$%s.

Hang on a sec. Biased Bunch of c!$%s = BBC:thumbup:
