Welcome to The Red Pill Report
Thanks for listening and a brief explanation of who and what The Red Pill Report is.
Around 70 MPs have apparently signed a letter to director-general Lord Hall complaining about the Corporation’s gloomy reporting of Brexit.
Tory MP Julian Knight
Tory MP Julian Knight, who apparently co-ordinated the letter, has warned that the BBC is in danger of losing touch with its viewers and giving too much airtime to ‘diehard Remainers’.
The BBC has a duty to offer impartial coverage of Brexit, said Mr Knight, a former BBC journalist.
He added: ‘It must be careful not to lose the trust of the 52 per cent who voted Leave, as well as those Remainers like myself who respect the will of the people and want to get on with delivering Brexit.’
Mr Knight gives the example of the prominent coverage given to so-called “regretful Remainers” in the aftermath of the vote, even though all available polling suggests no shift in public opinion towards the EU since the vote.
The Daily Mail gives these examples of BBC bias.
In January, the Victoria Derbyshire show visited Great Yarmouth, which voted heavily for Leave, but everyone they interviewed expressed doubts.
MPs said in October shows were ‘heavily biased’ against Leave campaigners. An analysis of Radio 4 found listeners were two and a half times more likely to hear a pro-EU speaker.
Pro-EU producer Nick Pisani, 53, handled a 50-minute debate on the BBC World news channel.
Assistant political editor Norman Smith predicted the pound would fall after Theresa May’s comments on the single market. The pound rallied.
Positive economic news is often presented ‘despite Brexit’. An online headline in November read: ‘UK construction rises despite Brexit vote.’
Former Tory Party leader Iain Duncan Smith, who is among the signatories, said: ‘Anyone can see that the way the BBC is covering this issue is not balanced. Everything is reported in a negative way, and we are subjected to endless coverage of the likes of Blair and Major. We are constantly told by the BBC that it is all too difficult and everything is going to go wrong – it is almost as if they feel they have to act as the opposition on this.’
This poor reporting by the BBC is one of the reasons behind us starting The Red Pill Report.
I know, I should not expect anything better today. But one sometimes hopes for the days when the BBC had a world wide reputation for honesty and unbiased reporting.
But today it appears to panda to sensational headlines and has a strong bias towards the liberal, left, globalist agenda.
Today I have two news items that illustrate this.
Trump: Four women protesting against the President-elect
Anna Bressanin interviews four women to who are unhappy with the vote for Trump as president.
The first statement in the interview is a woman saying that she does not think that had Clinton won the election, Trump supporters would have felt scared. But no balancing opinion is shared from woman or men who where very worried about how bad things could have become under a Clinton presidency.
It goes on to paint a a Trump precedence as being a bad thing for women and girl hopes of a future. But not every woman in America only thinks of what is between the legs when deciding on who to vote for. Making this election a sexist question is not a honest assessment of what toke place on the 8th. Again no balancing view.
America: The people’s rage
The second article is by Gavin Hewitt the BBC’sChief correspondent.
A headline stating “America: The people’s rage” strongly gives the impression that the majority of America is up in arms against Trump. The facts are rather different. Trump won the election by a huge margin. Even though it appears there was probably a great deal of election fraud on the side of the Clinton vote. For example, Gregg Phillips is reporting that there is “verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens.” It can be assumed that most illegal immigrants voted for the pro-open borders candidate, but even so… Trump won the electoral collage as was within half a percent of wining the popular vote. view government reach anything like this level of popular support. In 2015 the Conservative party only reached 36.9% of the popular vote. Yet we do not have riots in the streets and if we did would we say that this was, “The peoples rage’?
Most people who voted for Clinton are probably at home with a glass of wine and with the TV on. Those who voted for Trump are not on the streets raging. What we have is a few, often paid rioters getting the headlines, but by no means being a representative group of the people.
Lazy journalist like Gavin Hewitt, or possibly the headline writers back home would be better looking into the facts behind the riots and reporting on the facts not the sensations.
Why do we in the UK not hear about George Soros for funding groups that are leading protests/riots across America.
