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.

Yet more anti-Brexit comments as well as continuing attempts to bring down the Government. The BBC and its employees seem hell-bent on bringing-down the current Government with niggling comments ands hi-jacking of interviews with MPs.Author:Dave for Brexit

The BBC repeatedly state the that if the UK leave the EU without a deal, then we’re “Crashing out” which is clearly designed to communicate a negative result. In fact, not even “an expert” can possibly know if that would be a Positive or a Negative in the Short or Long term. The term is clear BBC bias.Author:Phill

Long interview with arch remoaner Anna soubrey – no brexiter being asked to offer alternative comments. The interviewer did not challenge her statements when a clean break with the eu is what us leavers voted for. It seemed the interviewer was almost agreeing with her.Author:Noeudeal

Repeated reference to Britain “CRASHING” out of the EU by both the main newsreader and Laura Kuenssberg. This implies that leaving the Union without a deal because of the intransigence of EU’s negotiators would be disastrous – hardly impartial reporting. #crash and burn….Author:Crashing departure hardly impartial.

Congratulations to Andrew Marr on his Sunday 12th November show and his James Dyson interview. However Dyson’s comments go completely unreported on other BBC news and internet BBC news. Dyson suggested UK should walk away from extortionate EU money demands.Author:European Engineer

45 second opinion piece in the middle of an opera programme by the presenter saying how brexit would have made his career impossible followed by ‘ode to joy’. Vomit.Author:DRS
