BBC Reporting
« on: June 29, 2016, 16:24:12 pm »
I find it rather strange that as todays' main news is the atrocity committed at Ankara Airport, which has been covered on all the online news lines (Sky, ITV, Daily newspapers), there has been NO mention on BBC news online. Mind you as the BBC are reluctant to recognise terrorists perhaps they are awaiting confirmation that these three men actually found the guns and body bombs and were taking them to airport security when the guns accidently went off. When they realised that 41 were dead and many more were injured, they were so full of remorse for their carelessness that they detonated the body bombs as an act of contritution!

The media, particularly the BBC (Brussels Broadcasting Corporation) reporting over the referendum has been shockingly one sided, it's like Iceland (underdog) beating Germany (favourite) in the Euros but all the media attention is on the losing side.

Michael, you actually do wear a tinfoil hat, don't you.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

It was just a question, and I thought those complaining about the BBC might find some agreement with it, not saying I think the Beeb is biased. ;)

No, but it doesn't make you a feminist either, but it could explain your attitude to certain issues, if you look at them from strictly male point of view.
