This afternoon in London, crowds estimated at well over 100,000 have taken to the streets to protest the visit of Donald Trump to the UK.
This evening, as huge numbers of people gathered in Trafalgar Square, the BBC News channel was broadcasting an interview as cameras covered the crowds. Sudden deafening cheers erupted and the interviewer pointed to the announcement of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s appearance as the cause of the cheers.
But then a BBC bias all too familiar to left-wing viewers took over:
A mass gathering of people from all walks of life and all parts of the country became simply ‘liberal Britain flexing its muscles’ – but even more tellingly, the interviewer told his guest:
But it doesn’t travel beyond that, does it?
This was not a question, as the framing and tone of voice showed. The only surprise – and potentially was that the BBC showed such frank footage of the scale of the demonstration. Perhaps it’s only marches against NHS cuts, poor pay and insecure employment that the BBC wants to keep from the public’s view.
