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.

A report of a close vote in Thatcham to use historically public open land to build a new school was alluded to by the reporter to mirror the divisive UK vote for Brexit. Surely it was just an important vote in a small community which effectively impacted to similar effect to both sides or the problem and Brexit had no relevance in the vote. To me this was an example of an inexperienced reporter trying to be cutting edge and probably reflects Thee BBC Remain preference.Author:Plqtty

While listening to date line london every single member of this panel was pro eu. There was no balance whatsoever. I observed with my own eyes and ears that the bbc is biased. This is a disgrace, i dont pay my tv licence to listen to a remainer patronise every one. The bbc should be reminded that many people who are licence holders voted leave. Therefore your presenters should reflect this.Author:Anthony

On the main page under the ‘Full Story’ section there is an editorial piece entitled ‘Have voters changed their minds on Brexit?’ yet hidden away in ‘World – Europe’ a story about the cronyism of the EU Commission – ‘Martin Selmayr: The man at the heart of a Brussels saga’. Clearly the BBC is still attempting to push their agenda. There is no need for the editorial piece and isn’t ‘news’ other than to sway public opinion that another referendum is needed / wanted.Author:Nomad
An otherwise worthwhile programme, in picking its guests, displays a consistent bias against Brexit. With only a few rare exceptions, hardly any of the guests have anything positive to say on the subject, so any claim of balance is laughable. And as someone who lives outside the “London Media Bubble” I have to say that the contempt shown by the producers of this programme towards the rest of the viewing UK, is the reason the reputation of the BBC is so low. The blatant bias exemplified particularly by the last 2 shows, has now stopped me (and others) watching what was previously a commendable programme.Author:Maggie123

The very first politician interviewed by the BBC after Theresa May’s brexit speech? The well known remainer troublemaker Anna Soubry. No other politicians in favour were interviewed.. it’s bias bias bias all the way with the Brexit bashing BBC. Sick of paying my licence fee for itAuthor:Chris4614

Anna Soubry at least 3 times before 3pm on BBC today. The breakfast programme on Radio 4, the lunchtime politics, Afternoon Live. Every time I tried to hear the news, I was subjected to an anti-Brexit rant from this zealot, totally uncontradicted by a balanced view. And she’s on again on Question Time. Also, I am fed up with hearing anything from the discredited ex- PM Tony Blair. Every time he speaks the BBC gives him a lot of air time, usually unbalanced, and provides him with a platform for his views.Author:Continuing BBC Brexit bias
