The growth figure of the EU was used in a report to highlight the lower growth of the UK. You never see this the other way round. I have never heard the growth figure of the UK quoted to highlight the low growth of the EU in the past. Why start comparing now? In the past the growth figure is just stated, not compared. I find it very divisive and misleading. Positive economic stories are spun in spite of brexit while negative ones are spun as because of brexit. The narrative of the BBC is incredibly biased and definately not impartial.
