The British Broadcasting Corporation (commonly called the BBC), is the world's largest broadcaster, it proliferates cultural Marxism and is regarded by most intelligent British people as a fifth column. The KGB defector Gordievsky refers to it as "The Red Service"[1], Norman Tebbit called it "Britain's very own dedicated political broadcaster" and Conservative Party MP Peter Bruinvels called it the "Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation."[2] The title of the official history of the BBC, by Jean Seaton, is Pinkoes and Traitors: the BBC and the Nation 1970-1987. Reports continue to condemn it for constant bias.[3][4][5][6] In July 2017 the Sunday Times carried an article with a sub-heading stating: "The BBC long ago metastasised into a different kettle of very rotten fish from its founding precept of 'public service'."[7]

BBC News-gathering is the largest news system through its regional offices, foreign correspondents and agreements with other news services. [8] The BBC reaches more than 200 countries and is available to more than 274 million households, significantly more than CNN's (its nearest competitor) estimated 200 million. Its radio services broadcast on a wide variety of wavelengths, making them available to many regions of the world. It broadcasts news - by radio or over the Internet - in some 33 languages.

In December 2016 Dame Deirdre Mary Hutton (born 15 March 1949), an anti-Apartheid activist and civil servant in meaningless roles, termed by the British media as "Queen of the Quangos"[9], was controversially announced as expected to be appointed the new Chairman of the BBC.[10]. Another leading contender was John Mackinson, an internationalist left-wing journalist, married to an Indian actress. This was further clear evidence that the conservative government, in even considering her, are part and parcel of the Liberal-Left hierarchy. Fortunately she failed in this, and the new Chairman from January 2017 is Sir David Cecil Clementi, a former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.

Structure

The BBC was the first national broadcasting organisation[11] and was founded on October 18, 1922 as the British Broadcasting Company Ltd; It was subsequently granted a Royal Charter and was made a publicly funded corporation in 1927. The corporation produces programmes and information services, broadcasting globally on television, radio, and the Internet. The stated mission of the BBC is "to inform, educate and entertain" (as laid down by Parliament in the BBC Charter);[12] its motto is "Nation Shall Speak Peace Unto Nation".

The BBC's domestic programming is primarily funded by levying television licence fees (under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949), although money is also raised through commercial activities such as sale of merchandise and programming. The BBC World Service, however, is funded through a grant-in-aid by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. As part of the BBC Charter, the Corporation cannot show commercial advertising on any services in the United Kingdom (television, radio, or internet). Outside the United Kingdom the BBC broadcasts commercially funded channels such as BBC America, BBC Canada, and BBC World News. In order to justify the licence fee, of which abolition is constantly called for[13], the BBC is expected to produce a number of high-rating competitive programmes in addition to those that commercial broadcasters would not normally broadcast.[14]

It employs 28,500 people in that country alone and has an annual budget of more than £4 billion/$6 billion.[15][16] Its employment policies come in for constant criticism[17] not least because of nepotism. The BBC is a quasi-autonomous statutory corporation as a public service broadcaster and is governed by the BBC Trust; it is, per its charter, supposed to "be free from both political and commercial influence and answer only to its viewers and listeners".[14] Of course, this is a joke as it in reality answers to no-one.

The BBC is well-known for the disproportionate number of Jews it has promoted and employed since World War II, such as Vladimir Rubinstein (from a Ukrainian Jewish family who had moved to Reval, in Estonia, then to Berlin etc.), who was long a mainstay of the BBC Monitoring Service[18].

Other well-known Jews at the BBC include:

  • Jeremy Isaacs, son of a jeweller, worked for the BBC in the 1960s and was the founding Chief Executive (1981-1987) of Channel 4, a TV channel devoted to the promotion of non-indigenous people and their 'rights'[19] in the UK. From 1990 to 1998 he acted as interviewer in a revival of the BBC series Face to Face, and between 1997 and 2000 he was President of the Royal Television Society.
  • Gideon Rachman, journalist who started his career with the BBC World Service in 1984.

In 2004 he presented The Norman Way, a three-part BBC Radio 4 documentary looking at "régime change" in 1066. He also hosted the BBC series The Blair Years (2007). The selection of Aaronovitch to interview Blair was criticized by the Daily Mail's Peter Oborne, who stated in July 2007 that "over the past ten years Aaronovitch has never... ceased to extend a helping hand to Tony Blair....... Aaronovitch cannot be regarded as an independent figure who could be trusted to interrogate a former prime minister on behalf of the British public."[21][22]
  • Adrian Goldberg, BBC Radio journalist (Jews from Germany).

  • David L Baddiel, a Jewish 'comedian' regularly on the BBC, notably the radio channels. He is an anti-semitism campaigner.[40] He is also employed by TV's Channel Four.

Several of these people have held senior positions, some for decades. In February 2014, BBC director Danny Cohen[41], also Jewish, announced there were too many white people in the broadcaster's content and its shows would include more Blacks and homosexuals "to reflect modern Britain".[42][43]

In July 2017 it was claimed in The Sunday Times that Jewish staff at the BBC got their positions and their high salaries through nepotism.[44] The writer was immediately violently attacked by the Jewish lobby, and other cowards including a government minister, with the Jewish lobby calling for a ban on the author ever working for any media outlet in the UK again.[45]

Other minorities

On 11 January 2000 the famous author, the late Chapman Pincher, had this letter published in the London Daily Telegraph: ".........over-representation of racial minorities in BBC television programmes conveys the false impression that immigrant minorities already constitute at least 25 per cent of the population. My studies of all the news programmes - BBC, ITV, Sky TV and the advertisements that ITV and Sky TV carry - suggest a much higher figure. Whenever possible, the television cameras concentrate on the relatively few blacks who may be in the hospital, store, school, bank, office, on the street or wherever. I say "black" advisedly, because they are almost always Afro-Caribbeans. What many of the indigenous population would like to know is, why do cameramen concentrate on blacks in this way? It is hard to believe that they are all so politically correct that they do so voluntarily. Are they working to instructions? If so, where do the instructions originate, since all channels and all advertising agencies seem to obey them?"

The BBC is known for its affirmative action programme[46] where it fires people for being white and hires nonwhites for its racial quotas. It often advertises for anyone but Europeans/Whites to fill vacancies.[47] In May 2016 the BBC presented a series called "The Hollow Crown" based on Shakespeare's Henry VI, where the Corporation deliberately cast a Black as the English Queen. In areas where there are no white people at all, the BBC is happy with it.[48] The BBC also requires one to be homosexual for many of its jobs.[49] The BBC blatantly pushes a multi-racial and multi-cultural agenda in all things, notably in its childrens channels.

Amongst the minorities employed by the BBC is

  • Naga Munchetty (born Subham Nagalakshmi Munchetty Chendriam), a Malayan-Indian journalist who had previously worked for the left-wing newspaper The Observer. She has also been a reporter for Reuters Financial TV, after which she worked as a producer for CNBC Europe, a business producer and reporter for the Far-Left Channel 4 News, and was a presenter on Bloomberg Television. Munchetty narrated the BBC documentary Fear and Faith in Paris looking at anti-Semitic attacks in Paris and the impact on Jewish community in France.

  • Rajini Vaidyanathan, regular contributor to BBC World News, World News Today, World News America.

The BBC is frequently attacked for its blatant anti-White bias.[59]

Immigration

Helen Boaden, former BBC Director of News (and who is now the BBC's Head of Radio) said the Corporation has a "deep liberal bias" in its coverage of immigration matters and that "coverage was skewed" as a result. She told a BBC Trust Review report that the BBC did not take the views of the professional lobby group Migration Watch seriously. The report said that the BBC had been "slow to reflect the weight of concern in the wider community" about issues around the topic and must do more to seek out opinions "which 'people like' us may find unpalatable", thus confirming the political leanings of those at the Corporation. A previous internal report in 2007 said there was self-censorship at the BBC which led to certain opinions being routinely under-represented.[60]

Migrationwatch UK which campaigns for tougher migration rules, said the Corporation was guilty of a strong bias in favour of immigration, and a reluctance even to address the case for reducing immigration.[61] The BBC's own Radio 4 presenter John Humphrys told the Daily Telegraph that BBC coverage of the EU and immigration issues has been biased to the Left.[62]

Cultural Marxist bias

The BBC enabled and encouraged paedophile monsters such as Jimmy Savile.

Equalities obsessions

Over the last few decades the BBC has engaged openly in cultural Marxist activities. They have engaged in a continuing positive discrimination campaign for women in prominent positions and as newsreaders (notably with men's sporting activities), and have deliberately and provocatively sent female reporters to Muslim countries, driving home the 'equalities' agenda. They have announced that by 2020 they aim to have women being at least half of their staff, which even many women have described as "lunacy".[63] In addition they consistently and disproportionately promote aliens and homosexuals in home broadcasts, whether it be in childrens' programmes, newsreaders and presenters, or interviewing their selected and edited 'members of the public'.

In 2015 the BBC deliberately "bought in a foreign lesbian feminist", who decorated the podium with homosexual banners etc., to conduct the famous patriotic "Last Night of the Proms" concert, and who, "in between Rule Britannia and God Save the Queen divested herself of a tirade of leftish internationalist banalities".[64]

Monday Club hostility

The BBC is legendary for it's hostility to traditional culture and being partisan in favour of social liberalism and socialism, despite the fact that, as a tax payer funded organ, it is supposed to be neutral. As far back as July 1964 the Conservative Monday Club produced a political paper attacking the general bias at the B.B.C.’s Overseas Service and for its "lack of energy" in attacking communism: "there is too little sustained and deliberate propaganda levelled at the peoples living under Communism and those in the neutral states subject to its wooing", they said. On April 6, 1970, the leader writer for The Daily Telegraph had commented on blatant BBC bias, and four days later Stephen Hastings, M.P., and former M.P., Paul Williams, both from the Monday Club, had letters published in that newspaper attacking BBC bias and "the greater use of Left-wing intellectuals" presenting their angle in programmes. Hastings added that people were "increasingly and deeply concerned about the ceaseless Leftist bias on TV." Conservative MP Peter Bruinvels called the BBC the "Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation"[65] and Norman Tebbit, M.P., called the BBC the "Stateless Person's Broadcasting Corporation" because of what he regarded as its unpatriotic coverage of the Falklands War. In March 1991 Gregory Lauder-Frost, speaking again on behalf of the Monday Club, stated: "What annoys us is that the BBC does not support the British people"[66], and the following month the Club called publicly upon the Home Secretary "to vet senior appointments at the BBC……the governors have failed in their duties."[67]

Complete bias

Muslims in Britain protesting against the Zionist BBC.[68]
White people also protested at what they saw as Zionist coverage of the Gaza conflict in 2014.

There is a website dedicated to highlighting the bias of the BBC.[69]

The Spring 2002 edition of the Traditional Britain Group's Newsletter carried an article entitled "The BBC - an employment service for Leftists", using the fake cultural historian Patrick Wright "from the liberal-left fringe" with his "sneering, deconstructionist and pro-multiculturalism" opinions as an example. The Daily Telegraph, on August 3, 2005, carried a letter from the KGB defector Oleg Gordievsky referring to the BBC as "The Red Service". In 2006 Norman Tebbit said: "The BBC was always against Lady Thatcher."[70] Mark Thompson, Director-General of the BBC admitted in 2010 "In the BBC I joined 30 years ago [as a production trainee, in 1979], there was, in much of current affairs, in terms of people's personal politics, which were quite vocal, a massive bias to The Left. The organisation struggled with impartiality." [71]

The BBC's leading political journalist Andrew Marr stated in 2006: "The BBC is not impartial or neutral. It has a cultural liberal bias". However, many of the BBC's journalists and "luvvies", such as Francis Wheen, are well-known Marxists. The BBC never invites anyone from the old Tory 'Right' who might proffer a traditionalists' opinion, and on their many chat shows and programmes, such as Question Time, their invited guests and audiences are all broadly Left (includes those they invite from the non-Conservative Party).

In 2007 Robin Aitken, who had worked as a reporter and journalist at the BBC for 25 years at all levels of the corporation, produced his book: Can We Trust the BBC?. In it he argues that the BBC makes and shapes the British nation in a way no other institution can, and states that the Corporation has a strong internal culture which is biased to The Left and which imperils its objectivity; that by analysing the BBC's coverage this soon becomes obvious in, for instance, seeing and hearing how left-wing groups and viewpoints get favourable treatment, while others are left out in the cold.[72]

One of the BBC's former leading news broadcasters stated in 2011 "At the core of the BBC, in its very DNA,is a way of thinking that is firmly of The Left………In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told "it’s all in there"".[73]· A standard joke amongst British Tories is that the BBC is The Guardian on air.

BBC's Newsnight programme on August 8, 2013 went out of their way to smear and attack the Traditional Britain Group (including interviewing a well-known Communist, Gerry Gable, who they portrayed as an "anti-fascist campaigner" without revealing his politics, for his view on the organisation which he naturally stated to be "National Socialist"), for opposing the Labour Party's nomination of Mrs Doreen Lawrence, a Jamaican negress, for a Life Peerage, which the TBG said was "totally without merit" and a "politically correct appointment". Newsnight's presenter Kirsty Wark also slated the TBG for upholding the Conservative Party's 1970 General Election Manifesto pledge to halt immigration and encourage State-assisted voluntary repatriation to their natural homelands. Gregory Lauder-Frost, for the TBG, replied that this pledge was more relevant today than it ever was in 1970. Wark's response was to ask him if he was a member of the BNP, a deliberate slur witnessed by millions.

Their biased reporting can be found throughout their news and current affairs programmes. A good example was Saturday March 15, 2014 on BBC Radio 4's Today programme (8.40 a.m.) where the presenter interviewed Jack Straw (Marxist) former Labour government Foreign Secretary for the UK, and the USA's James Rubin (also Jewish) on the Russia-Ukraine crisis. Naturally both were hostile towards Russia.

In July 2014, even Muslims protested outside BBC headquarters for its biased coverage of Palestine.[74] A few days later, white people joined in. The protests continued for days.[75]

After the Rotherham rape scandals came to light, CNN and the BBC hid the fact that all the victims were white and then put a Paki race-hustler, Muhbeen Hussain, "Muslim Youth Spokesman" all over the TV to spread propaganda that it was only non-whites who were the victims. They then showed only white people in the government, trying to imply white people raped them. Also all the news casters were nonwhites too.[76][77]

The BBC were exposed for their jaundiced reporting of the Swiss referendum to cap immigration, when they were accused of "going ballistic" about it.[78]

In June 2015 a senior Conservative Party Member of Parliament, John Whittingdale, called for a proper enquiry and examination of the BBC's well-known left-wing bias before its Charter could be renewed.[79] With the death of the murdering dictator Fidel Castro in November 2016 the BBC excelled itself in demonstrating its left-wing bias.[80]

James Purnell, the former Labour Government's Minister for Culture, who is said to have left active party politics in 2010, was appointed to a £295,000-a-year job as the BBC’s Director of Strategy three years later. On 22nd August 2016 it was further announced that he would be taking up the powerful role as Director of BBC Radio stations, with a huge political influence over programming decisions across the airwaves. Conservative Party Member of Parliament Damian Collins attacked the appointment saying: "I can’t think of any other example of a former politician running such a major part of the BBC’s programming. Because of his political background there will undoubtedly be questions about impartiality."[81]

Complaints were also levied following the BBC's blatant campaigning against Donald Trump's candidature for the Presidency of the USA, and especially following their reporter Laura Kuenssberg's first interview with Trump after he became President, on the same platform as Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, where Kuenssberg literally abused Trump for his policies and suggested her views were those of the British people whom the BBC represented.[82] This was widely condemned in Britain.[83]

Following the death of IRA terrorist Martin McGuinness in March 2017, the BBC's eulogies to him were widely condemned as nauseating and an insult to the families of the victims of he and his fellow murderers.[84]

European Union

As well as being under constant criticism for its left-wing bias, its pro-European Union (the New Soviet Bloc) bias is also criticised at a time when it is felt that most UK citizens wish to leave the EU.[85] A Government Report published on March 15, 2015, said they were "deeply concerned" about the BBC's biased coverage of EU matters and said something must be done to improve it.[86]

During the UK campaigns to leave or remain in the European Union the BBC received huge funding from the EU[87][88] and unprecedented levels of complaints about pro-EU bias.[89][90][91][92][93] One Member of Parliament stated "Both the EU and the BBC have an unhealthy air of entitlement to huge amounts of taxpayers' money, they resent scrutiny of their affairs, they are both unaccountable and undemocratic."[94] When the Chairman of the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee called for "proper monitoring so the public can check whether or not the BBC is really being impartial" during the EU referendum campaign, arguing that "editorial judgement is unacceptable", the BBC blatantly refused to publish detailed records of their pro and anti-EU coverage.[95]

Nigel Farage the UKIP leader presented a report to the BBC hierarchy clearly detailing the BBC's pro-EU bias. [96] Following the referendum, when a clear majority of those who voted called for the UK to leave the EU, the BBC became even more vitriolic in its opposition to so-called "Brexit". On March 21, 2017 over 70 Members of Parliament complained in the Daily Telegraph of the continuing BBC anti-Brexit bias.[97][98] October 2017 saw Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative Party MP, charge the BBC with excessive bias against the UK leaving the EU and attempting to undermine the process.[99] BBC bias nevertheless continues[100] as they are apparently unaccountable to anyone.

Gypsies

The BBC also blames white people for gypsies being unemployable and unhygienic.[101]

Popularity

Older complacent domestic UK audiences often refer to the BBC as "the Beeb", a nickname originally dubbed by Peter Sellers in The Goon Show in the 1950s, when he referred to the "Beeb Beeb Ceeb". It was then borrowed, shortened and popularised by Kenny Everett.[102] Another nickname, now less commonly used, is "Auntie", said to originate from the old-fashioned "Auntie knows best" attitude, (but possibly a sly reference to the 'aunties' and 'uncles' who were presenters of children's programmes in early days)[103] in the days when John Reith, the BBC's founder, was in charge. The two nicknames have also been used together as "Auntie Beeb",[104] and Auntie has been used in outtakes programmes such as Auntie's Bloomers.[105]. This terminology is more commonly recognised as being that of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, also a Public Broadcaster, which may also be referred to by older generations as 'Auntie'. This old popularity has all but vanished over the last decades of the 20th century, into the 21st, as obvious left-wing bias and the revealing of the high salaries the BBC pay themselves at the license-payers expense has infuriated critics and ordinary people alike.

Public outrage

The Executives at the BBC run it like a private club where they pay themselves, despite criticism, fantastic and unjustifiable salaries.[106] It was announced in September 2016 that BBC journalists are paid up to 40 per cent more than their competitors in the commercial sector. Staff in senior positions were paid an average of 34 per cent more, with those at editor level paid around 20 per cent more.[107] The BBC have reached such heights of arrogance that they even carry their own reports on huge salary increases for themselves.[108] Such was the outcry in July 2017 over their salaries that the BBC were forced to announce protection measures for their overpaid staff.[109]

Other

The BBC also has promoted the idea to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that people who heavily use Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are to be assumed to be pirates.[110]
