No, he is a professional.

A professional hypocrite.

Many such cases.

It's so transparent a child could see through it.

The Greens have had one appearance on Question Time in a year, yet random GB News journalists are rolled out repeatedly.

We're still living in complete denial about Brexit and have the state broadcaster basically refusing to acknowledge reality because it might hurt some people's feelings.


Still Emily Maitlis didnít hold back with her unbiased presenting on Newsnight!

Thank you and welcome back.

We could do with some more common sense and balance here!

So any view that you agree with is common sense!

All journalists need to leave their personal beliefs at the door when writing stories for a proprietor. Unless they are asked to write an oped. There's nothing hypocritical involved in doing your job. The job that puts bread in the mouths of your children.

I bet when you were a teacher you were expected to teach things you disagreed with. If not, and you were allowed free reign to teach whatever you believed in, there was something seriously wrong with the management of the curriculum.

How do work that out?

All I said is we could do with more. Hard to disagree with that!

Driving in to work earlier and heard on Times Radio that a Labour MP had been suspended - I already knew that a Tory one had.
BBC webpage - main page and news page - no mention of the Labour MP - just the Tory one.
Continued bias.
Defund the BBC

I read that more than 50% of the BBC's Christmas output this year will be repeats.

This has been the trend for many years I guess the beeb has just given up trying to compete with the streaming services.

Still it hardly justifies there argument for being value for money. Does that mean I can send them the old cheque I used to pay my licence?

On a more interesting topic the BBC has said they see the end of terrestrial TV (Freeview) in the not too distant future. For once I think they are right it will all depend on broadband coverage but I do think the end is nigh.

You are correct that the suspension of the Tory MP was mentioned on the main news page but the suspension of the Labour MP wasn't having been listed on the Politics page instead

A list that includes the President of the EU but doesn't include our beloved Meghan.

I believe that good professional journalists do that, but unlike you I regard that as rather rare today. Besides the injection of bias doesn't only include what's written but what perspectives are omitted and often not covered.

The difference between the opinion piece journalist and factual journalist was always a matter of degree, but today it might as well not exist in many cases.

As for me my subject was IT and computing science so thankfully subjective topics weren't on the table.

When I'd cover for subjects like history I wouldn't use it like some political opportunity, only the worse type of teachers do that. You would cover the topic from multiple perspectives because you are there to encourage critical thinking not whatever your politics are.

My history teacher at school has a Wiki page which lists him as a Trotskyist and activist. He once (1972?) threw a kid out of his class for wearing a Yes to Europe badge.
I must add he was a brilliant teacher.
