BBC: Biased belief compliance

Carbon Brief reports that the BBC, one of the world?s largest and most respected news organisations, has issued formal guidance to its journalists on how to report climate change. Quote.

Carbon Brief has obtained the internal four-page ?crib sheet? sent yesterday to BBC journalists via an email from Fran Unsworth, the BBC?s director of news and current affairs. The crib sheet includes the BBC?s ?editorial policy? and ?position? on climate change.

All of the BBC?s editorial staff have also been invited to sign up for a one-hour ?training course on reporting climate change?. Carbon Brief understands this is the first time that the BBC has issued formal reporting guidance to its staff on this topic. End of quote.

Amazing cancer cure but BBC won’t say where it came from

Imagine an article about an amazing cancer drug that has cured 58% of terminally ill patients. A drug cocktail so amazing and effective that the United Kingdom has approved it in record time in order to make it available for their National Health Service. Now imagine an article about it written for the BBC that tells us everything except who is actually responsible for this amazing breakthrough in cancer research. Here is the article. As you can see no mention at all is made of where the cure came from.

Given the worldwide media bias that you know of, which country to you think this cure came from?

The Riot That Never Was

?Unemployed demonstration in London. The crowd has now passed along Whitehall and, at the suggestion of Mr Popplebury, Secretary of the National Movement for Abolishing Theatre Queues, is preparing to demolish the Houses of Parliament with trench mortars. […] The clock tower, 320 feet in height, has just fallen to the ground, together with the famous clock Big Ben, which used to strike the hours on a bell weighing nine tons.?

– Ronald Knox,?Broadcasting the Barricades

In January 1926, the BBC sparked a national panic …

It broadcast a 12-minute report of a murderous riot in central London, which turned out to be a spoof, masterminded by a literary priest.

The show was the work of a Catholic priest, a satirist, and a writer of detective fiction who all happened to be the same man: Father Ronald Arbuthnott Knox. Knox penned the skit to poke fun at the BBC, because he believed his countrymen took what they heard on the radio too seriously. But he copied the style of BBC news bulletins so well that some listeners mistook his satire for the real thing.

Broadcasting the Barricades ?reported? that a mob of unemployed workers were attacking London and lynching government ministers. A portion of Knox?s audience apparently believed these reports to be true, because newspapers and the BBC soon found themselves overwhelmed with calls about the fictitious uprising. This incident is often cited as a predecessor to the alleged panic surrounding Orson Welles?s 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast. But, as with the later show, there are definite indications that the reports of hysteria surrounding Knox?s broadcast were exaggerated. The BBC, for instance, later reported receiving an influx of mail from listeners who enjoyed the show, as Welles and CBS would in 1938.

Knox, interrupted an apparently genuine BBC talk on 18th century literature with a report that Big Ben had been toppled by trench mortars, the Savoy Hotel torched, and a Government minister lynched.

The Russian revolution was then less than a decade old, the General Strike already in preparation.?

In this febrile atmosphere, many took Knox’s satire seriously, besieging the BBC with worried phone calls. Bad weather delayed delivery of the next day’s papers, giving rural listeners prolonged reason to assume the capital was in flames.
The BBC made several announcements later that evening that the programme had been ‘a burlesque’ but these assurances went largely unheard.

Much lulz in this 2006 BBC drama/documentary, they get everything wrong

https://youtu.be/RSA4yPly0-A

Enjoy watching this video from 2006 where the BBC looks at our demand for energy…it was a blend of documentary and drama.

Here is their blurb.

The demand for energy has risen relentlessly over the last 150 years in line with industrial development and population growth.

And as economies of developing countries like China and India continue to grow, it is predicted demand will rise by a further 50% by 2030. ? Read more »

How gay is the BBC?

This gay:

Jeremy Vine, the BBC radio presenter, has been reported under the broadcaster’s “equality and diversity code” for saying he had man flu.

The 50-year-old broadcaster revealed he was suffering from a persistent cough at night after falling ill a few days ago during a feature about Victorian ailments on his Radio 2 lunchtime show.

He referred to his “man flu” while talking to Dr Sarah Jarvis about whooping cough – a highly contagious bacterial infection of the lungs – and other illnesses common in the 1800s. ? Read more »

I agree with Delingpole, Tyson Fury was robbed

James Delingpole explains why Tyson Fury should have been the BBC Personality of the year.

Tyson Fury has been a personal hero of mine ever since he told an interviewer?that ?a woman?s best place is in the kitchen and on her back?.making me a good cup of tea.?

I also was also quite entertained by his remarks about homosexuality, which he thinks should be banned and which he equates with paedophilia.

It?s not so much that I necessarily agree with every last word of his sentiments. (I wouldn?t dare. My wife would kill me. Also, I personally think I?m a better cook and tea-maker than her so she?s better off doing the washing). Rather, what I admire is his?sheer, bloody-minded, fuck-you, Trump-style outspokenness. ?

BBC Religion and Ethics department accused of bias

In yet another example of the influence of Islam within Western countries, a group of Hindu and Sikh leaders have accused the BBC of making a disproportionate number of programmes on Islam at the expense of covering other Asian religions.

A breakdown of programming from the BBC’s Religion and Ethics department, seen by The Independent, reveals that since 2001, the BBC made 41 faith programmes on Islam, compared with just five on Hinduism and one on Sikhism.
Critics say the disproportionate amount of programming is part of an apparent bias within the BBC towards Islam since the attacks of 11 September 2001, which has placed an often uncomfortable media spotlight on Britain’s Muslims.
