    The BBC World Service is to receive a "significant" sum of money from the US government to help combat the blocking of TV and internet services in countries including Iran and China. In what the BBC said is the first deal of its kind, an agreement is expected to be signed later this month that will see US state department money – understood to be a low six-figure sum – given to the World Service to invest in developing anti-jamming technology and software.
  • BBC bias is getting worse – Trotsky would fit right in

    How Left-wing do you have to be, do you think, before you’re beyond the pale at the BBC? Would open admiration for Mao be too extreme? I doubt it. Stalin? Borderline, I’d say – didn’t he improve tractor technology or something? Trotsky? Barely even worth mentioning. ... The BBC’s bias seems to be getting worse. Yesterday it made enormous play of the fact that Barnardo’s was to run family welfare services at the government’s pre-departure accommodation centre for failed asylum seekers, and implied they were collaborating in some terrible crime. Why is this a story? If a court has decided...

    Being an Englishman and a political junkie I watch BBC Newsnight regularly. As with the US networks the BBC has an inbuilt left/liberal bias but, although you could never get an Obama/Clinton style love-in for Governor Palin, the recent Newsnight profile of her was reasonably fair.

    London's Sunday Mirror newspaper says a BBC series called "The Real Hustle" is deceptive because it hires actors to play the victims of con artists. The newspaper said the reality show claims it isn't staged, but that its investigation allegedly found that some people taking part in the program are actors and are paid for their time.

    The British television station goes out of its way to trash the film Iranium — and to label its director as an Israeli Jew. The movie Iranium premiered on February 8, and has made a lot of noise since then. First, the Iranian Embassy in Canada tried to prevent it from being shown. Then Islamic thugs threatened the organizers. Then the Iranian Foreign Ministry released a statement saying the documentary shows Western countries will do anything to hurt Iran’s nuclear activities. Quite clearly, the Islamic regime is fearful of this documentary, which vividly reveals the truth of Iran’s three decades...

    ....It was the day that a host of BBC executives and star presenters admitted what critics have been telling them for years: the BBC is dominated by trendy, Left-leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism. A leaked account of an ‘impartiality summit’ called by BBC chairman Michael Grade, is certain to lead to a new row about the BBC and its reporting on key issues, especially concerning Muslims and the war on terror. It reveals that executives would let the Bible be thrown into a dustbin on a TV comedy show, but not the Koran,...
  • How BBC warmists abuse the science

    02/05/2011 2:52:10 PM PST · by Berlin_Freeper · 3 replies ^ | Jan 29 2011 | Christopher Booker
    ... The formula the BBC uses in its forlorn attempts to counterattack has been familiar ever since its 2008 series Climate Wars. First, a presenter with some scientific credentials comes on, apparently to look impartially at the evidence. Supporters of the cause are allowed to put their case without challenge. Hours of film of climate-change “deniers” are cherrypicked for soundbites that can be shown, out of context, to make them look ridiculous. The presenter can then conclude that the “deniers” are a tiny handful of eccentrics standing out against an overwhelming scientific “consensus”. Monday’s Horizon exemplified this formula to a...

    As many here on this web site has advocated. The English soccer hooligans - i.e. the normal lower class Brits - are finally standing up. The cannon fodder of Gallipolli, Sword Beach etc. are standing up and want to be heard. You even have the British equivalent of Sox and Yankees fans walking arm in arm. Even the BBC have noticed. Have a look at it. Cheers.
  • Mexicans furious after being branded "lazy, feckless and flatulent" on UK's Top Gear

    TOP GEAR is under fire today for comments its hosts made about Mexico, labeling Mexicans as "lazy, feckless and flatulent" and condemning the country's cuisine as "refried sick." On Sunday night's episode of the BBC's top-rating motoring show, presenter Richard Hammond described the similarities between Mexican cars and Mexican people, saying both were "lazy, feckless, flatulent, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat."

    A protester holds up a placard during a rally in front of BBC's Bush House in London on January 26. BBC World Service radio listeners throughout the Balkans this morning tuned in to some disappointing news. Citing budget cuts, the World Service announced that it was closing down radio programming in five of its broadcast languages -- Albanian, Macedonian, Portuguese for Africa, English for the Caribbean, and Serbian. The move effectively shuts down the last World Service broadcasts in the Balkans, after earlier closures of the Croatian, Bulgarian, and Slovenian language services. The departure of the World Service leaves RFE/RL,...

    For 20 years I was a front man at the BBC, anchoring news and current affairs programmes, so I reckon nobody is better placed than me to answer the question that nags at many of its viewers — is the BBC biased? In my view, ‘bias’ is too blunt a word to describe the subtleties of the pervading culture. The better word is a ‘mindset’. At the core of the BBC, in its very DNA, is a way of thinking that is firmly of the Left. By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The...

    LONDON, January 19, 2011 ( – BBC Radio 4 has marked the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible by claiming that King David, the Jewish king of the Old Testament who slew the giant Philistine Goliath, was in the Bible’s “only gay relationship.” On a literary program, one of a series on the historic Bible translation, aired on Sunday, January 9th, playwright Howard Brenton claimed that David had been in love with Jonathan, the son of King Saul. Brenton said, “To a secular reader the story of David and Jonathan’s love is obviously homosexual, the only...

    Oil has been steadily on the rise since the beginning of 2009. But could it reach mid-2008 levels or climb higher still? Jim Rogers, an American investor who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros, told the BBC’s Justin Rowlatt on Wednesday the prices are certain to exceed those levels. “Well, the surprise is going to be how high the price of oil stays and how high it goes, because Justin [Rowlatt] we have had no major elephant [field] oil discoveries in over 40 years,” Rogers said. “The International Energy Agency is going around the world pleading with people to...

    Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been sacked after the newspaper conceded photos of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake. In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a "calculated and malicious hoax" and that it would be "inappropriate" for Morgan to continue. The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures. Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt "vindicated". Mr Goodman added: "It is just a great pity it has taken so long... and that so much damage has been done in the meantime."

    THE BBC has angered Christians with a TV drama in which the Virgin Mary is branded a prostitute and sex cheat. In The Nativity, written by EastEnders scriptwriter Tony Jordan, 15-year-old Mary is attacked by people who do not believe her claim that she is pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph accuses her of “whoring” and even suggests that her pregnancy might have been the result of rape. The Church of England has described the four-part drama, which goes out before the 9pm watershed from tomorrow, as “a gritty interpretation”. But Stephen Green, of the ministry Christian Voice,...

And yesterday friends and colleagues were counting the loss of war reporter Brian Hanrahan – as a great bloke. The BBC stalwart, who made his name in the heat of battle in the Falklands, has died aged 61 after a short illness. He delivered his famous line about Harrier jump jets during the 1982 conflict to get round restrictions on revealing how many planes had taken part in any particular operation....
