The BBC's Charter and its Producers Guidelines state:
...'Due impartiality lies at the heart of the BBC. All programs and services should be open minded, fair and show a respect for truth? [BBC reports should] contain comprehensive, authoritative and impartial coverage of news and current affairs in the United Kingdom and throughout the world??
As few of you will know, this 60 year old Radio4 soap opera ("The Everyday Story Of Country Folk") has had major flood story line for the last two months.
Almost at the end of last night's episode, two middle ranking agribusiness managers are discussing the flood, and its effect on crops, when one of them says, "The flood was just a one off." The response is the standard (false) BBC assertion, "Oh, come on, you know they are happening more often."
Yes - I know it's a fictional flood in a fictional series, but that is just false information - even the IPCC admit that.
For the BBC it's a means to indoctrinate the masses with their agenda. Do you know any programme they make where they don't employ similar tactics whenever they can? They are sickening with what they've done and continue to do to society along with the politicians who have continued to maintain them.
At present, the BBC is only answerable to itself in deciding its standards and coverage. How does it measure up to what you consider good quality, and impartial and unbiased reporting as required by its charter? All TV viewers in the UK are forced by law to pay for this 'service'. Do you believe that what is received truly 'serves' the society, - or merely increases the problems within it?
