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.

The hourly news from 7 am through until 12 noon did not mention that the EU Parliament vote for Northern Ireland to be given special status was rejected.

BBC news website, main news article headlined: ‘British Attitudes Survey: More Britons ‘back higher taxes’ also in the subheading ‘peeople are also becoming more sceptical of the EU, and more socially liberal’. When you click to read the article the Brexit related info is buried towards the end, with a shocking statistic that ‘76% of people said the UK should leave the EU’. The BBC has been running relentless pro EU and Anti Brexit articles on its website for a sustained period of time, one would have thought that a statistic of ‘76% of people said the UK should leave the EU’ would have been the main headline – in the interests of balanced reporting, but as usual the BBC website editors like to use subtle techniques to bury pro Brexit news and promote pro remain views.Author:Todd Landers

As always the ‘speakers’ were in the majority for the ‘remain’ argument and Dimbleby increasingly struggles to restrain his neo-liberal stance. The audience is dominated by left wing ‘boo-boys’ and the lack of people like Freddie Forsythe, Dr David Starkey, Norman Littlejohn Nigel Farage etc, is lamentable. Metropolitan, cloistered £150k + leftiy BBC apparatchiks who just use this platform as a Remainer propaganda conduit. God BBC take a look at yourselves!Author:Patriot
