The BBC should be stripped of the license fee and privatised. There can be no possible reason for maintaining a government-owned media empire in this day and age – a poor concept now totally obsolete.
If the corporation is as good as it claims to be it will have no difficulty surviving when facing the cold winds of competition.
The BBC is a propaganda machine that gets some of its funding from the EU. It will be used to full effect in the referendum.
As an organization run by Guardian readers for Guardian readers (as John Humphreys, amongst others, has acknowledged) the very idea that the BBC’s wisdom should be challenged by anyone who doesn’t live in Hampstead must simply be laughed at.
The BBC is the integral part of the fifth column in this country. In no way does it reflect public opinion, it wants to lead public opinion. It tries to change the way people think. As an example – when some people fly off to Syria to join the death cult 99% of the population say ‘good riddance’. But all we get from the BBC is concern that they might get killed or injured, interviews with distraught relatives, how they came to be radicalised etc on and on and on for sometimes weeks on end. It is a pure propaganda channel and its extreme-left wing view of the world is so ingrained and institutionalised it has become impossible for them to change or to hide it.
Rotherham – No Panorama investigative journalism, no undercover BBC hacks tracking down the offenders, no response from the BBC at all until the scandal could not be hidden and then they worked harder at trying not to mention it and covering up the religion and nationality of the abusers than reporting the truth of what exactly was going on.
The BBC is totally out of control in pushing its left wing agenda. It breaks its charter every day and nothing is done about it. It must be independent and it is not. Much needs to be done or better still make it a subscription service so it has to stand on its own two feet. The TV tax must go.We must have choice.
They are sanctimonious hypocrites who laugh at, belittle, patronise, and hate the British, especially the working class, who pay their obscenely large wage packets.
The BBC Trust is totally discredited; its chairperson has been found wanting in other roles. It is not fit for purpose.
