A recent survey revealed that over 25% of British adults get virtually all of their exposure to ‘news’ from the BBC, whether online or on TV or radio. Any BBC bias in relation to the EU referendum could well determine the outcome of Britain’s EU membership for a generation.
BBC bias towards the ‘Remain’ campaign is both predictable and outrageous, and in breach of its own editorial guidelines, which are consistently ignored. Our own experiences, and those of others, tell us that even highly detailed official complaints about breaches of editorial guidelines are virtually always futile.
A tip of the hat to David Keighley, a former BBC news producer, for this.
