BBC 6 o’clock news

There was hardly any coverage of the fishermen’s flotilla sailing up the Thames. Most of the footage focused on the boats with ‘in’ flags on them. The fishermen had the right to protest and it was ignored by the BBC. There was no mention of Mr Geldof waving two fingers at the fishermen. The main headlines for that evening were about another threat from the chancellor. Making sure that he got his message across. But not giving the leave campaigners any real time to argue against his claims. Why are you headlining guesswork as fact? Surely it could be mentioned further down the order of news rather than at the beginning.
