It’s funny really that if the BBC did it’s job as an impartial broadcaster for instance showcasing the true devastation of the Tory cuts then Labour could well have prevented the Tories winning in 2015. But hey ho.
My sister has lived in the USA for five years now. She has a great life, misses some things about the UK. But what she misses the most is the BBC.
If we’re talking about bias and corruption in terms of broadcasting, look at Fox in the USA. It’s right-leaning, sure, and all points of view should be represented. But it’s also got it’s fingers in political matters. Would you rather a broadcaster that at least *tries* to be unbiased or would you like the world’s media to be run solely by Rupert Murdoch?
My sister has ceased watching broadcast telly in America, by the way.
The BBC is far from perfect. And it gets a kicking from the Left and from the Right. But it’s important. As Mark Gatiss once said “we should always be critical of the BBC, but we should also defend it to the fucking death”.
