The BBC were never the epitome of unbiased news. George Orwell worked for the BBC – where do you think he got his inspiration for Winston Smith’s ‘fictional’ job re-writing the news?
The big lie is that the BBC was ever unbiased and has somehow been laterally infiltrated by fifth columnists.
It’s like the old gag about Punch magazine. Not as funny as it used to be. Mind you, it never was. Same with the BBC. Not as unbiased as it used to be. Mind you, it never was.
