BBC Media Action   has spent an astonishing £500,000 on a cod survey in Asia that is designed to spread alarm about climate change among some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
The latest News-watch monitoring report covers 14 weeks of the Today programme. The findings include:    • EU matters relating to the structure and operation of the EU were inadequately covered. There is systematic ‘bias by omission’.    • Withdrawal from the EU was only barely considered.
Headline of the week about the BBC is that they are sending 300 staff to cover the Glastonbury festival to deliver around 80 hours of coverage on their man channels on television and radio.
One of the ways that the BBC defends itself against criticism is to say that viewers have complained in ‘record numbers’ against particular aspects of programming. It’s particularly effective because it creates a smokescreen of the Corporation’s own making and largely within its own control that generates newspaper headlines in the BBC’s favour.
Another European election and the BBC are in full cry again trying to find ways of showing that those who support withdrawal are racist. They have form, and it has been tracked in detail by News-watch. Their justification, of course, is that the party has ‘controversial’ policies that need probing.
