WANT TO STOP BBC BIAS AGAINST BREXIT?
Despite the vote for Brexit, the BBC output remains massively opposed to withdrawal from the EU. It is required by law to be impartial, but is not. At the same time, its complaints procedure is not fit for purpose. It is designed mainly to protect the BBC. With the process of Brexit now underway, it is vital that pressure is applied to force it to become properly fair. That is the purpose of this site.
This site has been created by News-watch. We have been monitoring the BBC’s output for 17 years and thus have unmatched experience and expertise. Our reports are already read at the highest level, and our purpose now is to ensure that the issues involved in the UK’s withdrawal from the EU are properly covered. But we have limited resources, so we need your help. The BBC’s output is massive and a main tactic is to defend against accusations of bias by claiming that balancing material elsewhere has been missed. Every complaint registered here will be considered carefully and used as an essential part of our monitoring efforts and analysis.
News-watch is continuing its monitoring throughout the process of withdrawal, using new technology that allows the recording and searching in retrospect of a greater range of BBC output than has ever been possible. This will allow us to attack the BBC’s phoney defences more effectively. We are analysing with unprecedented range and depth areas such as content themes, the editorial stance of individual programmes, or the approach presenters over time.
We intend to put intense pressure on the BBC high command as Brexit unfolds. BBC Complaints will be a core part of that process. It is an easy-to-use conduit for you to be fully engaged in holding the Corporation to account.
Report EU Bias
Our hope is that you will alert us to as many examples as possible of BBC EU bias. Please register your observations below. We’ll feature some of the most interesting contributions on the site, and create an archive of complaints that will serve as a clear record of the Corporation’s failings.
We’re not linked to or affiliated with the BBC, and can’t guarantee that we will use your complaint directly in our work. As such, you may also wish to voice your concerns directly to the BBC using the Corporation’s own complaints procedure.

Every morning I switch on radio 2 in the morning to be met with a daily negative onslaught of anti Brecht propaganda. There is no hint of shame about it. It’s a huge talking point amongst my colleagues. The BBC in general are totally out of control in their bias against brexit. No wonder I’m seeing more and more vehicle stickers saying “ is that the truth or did you hear it on the BBC”.Author:Mikemac

I cannot put all the dates down because you ask for one specific date, I am sick and tired as are everyone else with continuous anti Brexit broadcasting from Monday 17th September 2019 and continuing through the rest of the week. The news channel is completely taken over with Brexit and interviewing remainers who LOST THE REFERENDUM and cannot accept defeat. THE BRITISH PUBLIC VOTED TO LEAVE SO CAN YOU AT THE BBC ACCEPT IT? This is a time in our history to reclaim back our country and when I voted to leave I am not concerned with the terms as long as we once again run our own country. Perhaps it may be a good idea if the BBC moved all their headquarters to Brussels and give us all a break! As Brexit has never happened before how is it that the BBC know so much about what we are going to lose and regret leaving. Just do everyone a favour and change the recordAuthor:Disgusted with BBC Bias on Brexit

Laura Kussenberg article in which she describes a no-deal Brexit as “armageddon”, and a “catastrophe” that will create “turmoil”. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45555646Author:DrBloor

The female presenter today was trying to persuade Lib-dem MP to vote with his party to remain in EU instead of voting as his constituents did in the brexit referendum. I am an Eastbourne constituent & have not changed my mind about my leave vote in the referendum & believe that all MP’s should respect the way their constituents voted in the referendum. I find all BBC news programmes, without exception, are biased to remaining in the EU.Author:L Crouch

Report on a computer game where post brexit Europeans are held in concentration camps and only allowed to do menial jobs. Why the BBC saw fit to report this other than an anti brexit bias is beyond me I couldn’t believe what I was watching.. And kept wondering why it was on!!. Complained to BBC about its biased approach.Author:Mooredo

I wish to complain about the alarmist, clearly anti-Brexit reporting done by Laura Kuenssberg in the News today. Time and time again things which are only possibilities are reported and stressed in an alarmist manner thus attempting to alter the views of the public to a more anti-Brexit position. The BBC is supposed to be impartial and her reporting does not reflect this at all.Author:ChrisCwmbran
