Perhaps this has been commented on but I just wanted to share anyway! The Guardian, Will Hutton, all singing the praises of the BBC. Where DO they get the idea we think them biased?

    I read one paragraph of Hutton’s crap and in that one paragraph was a blatant lie:

    “But with no fairness doctrine and no basic journalistic checking, Murdoch’s Fox News had rushed the tape on to air.”

    Fox News did not air the tape until after Sherrod resigned. Indeed its pretty obvious – as even lefties such as Chris Matthews and Jon Stewart admit – Breitbart was the one setup and was the most honest broker in the debacle.

    They are quite clearly worried. Otherwise why suggest big salary and pension cuts? As a sop to public anger perhaps or more likely to deflect criticism of the poor dumbed down programmes and the inept political coverage. This Hutton is a typical BBC stooge. He presumes , as they all are wont to, that the BBC is somehow a guardian of our democracy. The people are sovereign . If the BBC is on the ropes then it is about time. Abolish the tax and what will happen? Precisely nothing . The vacuum will fill of it’s own accord and we will be all the better for it.

    This fool obviously doesn’t realize that Breitbart actually showed the bit where Sherrrod realizes the error of racial discrimination.  That was in the original, so-called “heavily edited” version of the tape that Breitbart first put up online.  I saw it and commented here about exactly that at the time, before it even became a big story.

    The Guardian and the BBC are lying.

    I think we know where BBC luvvy Will Hutton is coming from: he wants to be the next Director General. He feel politically at home there.

     The title of Hutton’s piece is very revealing politically: –

    “Stick up for the BBC. It’s the last bulwark against rule by the mob”.

    Hutton, in his ivory tower arrogance, regards his/Guardian’s and BBC’s ‘political correctness’ and ‘multiculturalism’ as a bulwark against what most non-BBC people think; he regards them, disparagingly, as ‘the mob’. So, contradictorarily, the pro-revolution BBC calls the ordinary people who pay the bulk of the BBC poll tax, ‘the mob’. The attitude of the political elite and the ancien regime at the BBC!

     Hutton implies, absurdly, that the BBC provides political balance; he blatantly avoids the example of Israel, against which the BBC is totally unbalanced every day.

     Hutton’s ambiguous conclusion:-

    “This is a precious institution. It is time for more people to say so.”

     Yes, as Hutton implies in his conclusion, the BBC is ‘precious’, but not in the sense he tries to make out. The BBC is ‘precious’ to itself. It is so ‘precious’ that to criticise it for its obvious and blatant political bias, is to be called ‘the mob’.

      The BBC is a precious organisation, which is why it needs to be cleansed of the Marxist filth who infest it and make it look like an ugly whore.

    Will Hutton’s support is final proof of BBC bias.

    I remember Hutton when he was economic correspondant for Newsnight back in the 80’s and thinking then (as a teenager interested in the stock market) that he appeared to know bugger all. Yet it was onwards and upwards from there.

    Does anyone know what Huttons links to the Beeb are i.e is it family are University connections ?


    • George R says:

      Hutton is archetypal BBC-Guardian ‘politically correct’, ‘multicultural’ stock.

      He’s ex-BBC TV and radio producer/reporter, ex-‘Observer’ (Guardian group) editor, chief of Work Foundation; and he ended his public lecture for the BBC in 2008 with the words: “you are loved”.

      What a pitch for the BBC Director General job!
