A Lib Dem councillor, Matthew Hulbert, writes an article for the pro-EU weekly The New European headlined 'BBC and Channel 4’s obsession with so-called ‘impartiality’ is stifling true debate' and argues that the BBC should be more like MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and make a stand against people whose views "should be mocked, not respected" (i.e. Brexit supporters).
The New European then sends out a tweet linking to this article, and the BBC's Nick Robinson responds to it:
It's the old 'Complaints from both sides' thing again. The BBC may be (and is) guilty of a pronounced and proven anti-Brexit bias but because some anti-Brexit zealots think that the BBC isn't as pronounced and proven in its anti-Brexit bias as they would like it to be - and they, as here, are fully open in wanting the BBC to abandon any pretence of impartiality and to take their side (the side of truth) instead whilst claiming that the BBC is guilty of "stifling true debate" (a sinister form of words if ever there was one) in allowing Brexiteers an equal say (sic) - then we're expected to believe that the BBC is getting it about right. It isn't, and The New European is 'coming it' massively.
