BBC Busted! Far Left Media Outlet Caught Fixing Political Debate
Guest post by DMartyr
It comes as no surprise that a left leaning media outlet would stack biased audience members against a right-wing candidate. One example we saw was during the 2012 Presidential debate in which Michelle Obama was repeatedly allowed to loudly cheer for her husband even though it violated debate rules. The media also has no qualms about selecting moderators with left leaning agendas.
Rarely, however, have those biases been exposed as deliberate. Until now. The BBC admitted it hand picked a biased audience for last week’s general election debate in the U.K.
(Ukip candidate Nigel Farage stands alone after being repeatedly booed by biased audience.)
From Sunday Express:
The BBC initially refused to disclose the political make-up of the audience but eventually released figures to Express online, which showed that the audience was Left-leaning.
Of the 200-strong audience, about 58 were Conservative or Ukip supporters, while about 102 backed Labour, the Lib Dems, SNP or Plaid Cymru, all Leftist parties. The remaining 40 described themselves as undecided.
The figures mean that just 29 per cent of the total audience were supporters of the Tories or Ukip.
Ukip is demanding an investigation.
