Obama visit. Pro-EU bias from BBC presenters. Classic inter-BBC discussion.
At about 7.10am, 3-way chat between BBC presenters Sopel, Kuenssberg and Montague. Craftily scripted piece which gave 90% of discussion time to implying validity of Obama’s call for the UK to Remain. All 3 BBC presenters conveyed the global institutions in favour of Remain as speaking the unpalatable truth, without any attempt to recognise the self-interest, EU connections and faultlines in their arguments, nor the massive historical mistakes made by them, eg UK joining the euro.
Having conveyed Remain as the voice of reason, supported by great pillars of global reliability, the BBC inserted snippets of objections from Leave. Done in such a way as to convey Leave as intolerant and indignant in the face of reason.
