BBC - Biased Broadcasting Corporation

This is the primary reason why I declined a request by the BBC for an interview a couple of weeks ago. There was also a time constraint, but the BBC's lack of credibility when it comes to fairness and balance was the main reason. Bottom line: Like most of the mainstream press, I simply don't trust them to be fair, balanced, and to tell the whole truth. The BBC is one of the worst for slanting the news to fit their European/socialist agenda. There was no way I was going to be a party to them belittling and impugning what they view as "backward" small town, rural America. My Mama would slap me.

As I stated in my previous post, they wanted to discuss my views on "faith and values in small town, rural America" and its impact on the presidential election. Since they did this same dog and pony show four years ago, I suspect whatever they ultimately do, it will be more of "red-state hicks" vs. "blue state sophisticates."

It is sad, really. At one time the BBC was the finest news gathering and reporting organization in the world. I sat by my shortwave radio every night listening to 'The Beeb'.

Your decision to decline was a good one and I wish more people would do the same.

Thanks for commenting Dave.

Being run by the state, wouldn't that classify everything produced by the BBC as propaganda?

I guess we can expect the BBC to promote Sharia law as an effective incorporation into existing British law. Like socialism, if it's good enough for the Mother Country it should be good enough for us.
