BBC 23 oct 2019
And this follows the UK bashing DoH recently. Fascinating.
BBC just wants its perspective available to those living under "repressive regimes". UK commitment to keeping watch on its own people is different.
What's really fascinating is when people don't realise the difference between the British government and the BBC. They are separate entities.
So is BBC more like NPR than VoA?
I don't know who NPR or VoA are. The BBC report the news. They do not represent the British government or its policies. I would say more but it would only be moderated due to most moderators on this forum not being able to understand the idea of context. Needless to say, the BBC would view themselves as just a news service. I know, I've worked for the BBC.
Either way, when the BBC report the news they attempt to remain *politically neutral and without bias. They do not consciously promote or support the policies or views of any incumbent government. This may not be the case with news media in countries like the US, where truths, facts and realities usually appear quite subjective, but it's true in the UK with the BBC. The BBC has been unfoundedly criticised in the past, primarily by a particular *political party, but I can't discuss this here as it could be construed as *political.
Notes to moderators:
*The use of the adverb politically was unavoidable (in context), as was the term political party and the adjective political. Note that no actual **politics have been discussed as per TOS.
**The use of the plural noun politics was unavoidable (in context).
Thanks Good to know.
It sounds like the BBC is more like NPR than VoA, although NPR is arguably biased.
You're welcome. If you ask me; 'bias' is in the eye of the beholder.
