Impartiality is in our genes, so it's only right to point out that the BBC is under fire from the Corbynistas again, this time over BBC reporter/presenters' comments on Twitter.
It's another of the remarkable turnabouts of the past couple of years that BBC staff are now getting slammed from the Left as well as the Right for their tweets.
The interesting thing in the past - as painstakingly documented by David Preiser - is that it was a Herculean, maybe even a Sisyphean task, to find even one 'right-wing tweet' from a BBC reporter. They almost invariably came 'from the Left', reflecting the BBC's tendencies towards left-liberal groupthink. (We've posted countless examples of that too).
But, oh my, the Corbynistas are on the case now! Oddly, however, it only seems to be Laura Kuenssberg and Nick Robinson whose tweets really get their goat. They haven't, as far as I can see (and I keep on looking) found many other examples of 'right-wing tweets' from BBC staff (except for one apparently far-right-supporting QT staffer) - so the contention that BBC people almost invariable tweet 'from the Left' still seems to stand.
The tweet that has caused the biggest 'stink' over the past week came from Nick Robinson:
That went down like a lead balloon with Corbyn supporters, and calls for Nick Robinson's sacking have piled in again (which much take him straight back to 2014 and the cybernats calling for his head in huge numbers over the Scottish referendum). Nick has defended himself by saying that Mr Corbyn wouldn't disagree with a word of his tweet. So is that just Nick stating utterly non-contentious facts about Jeremy Corbyn, or is it Nick being rude about Jeremy Corbyn? (I have to say that I first read it as the latter).
The great irony here, as regular readers might remember, is that it was Nick Robinson who (apparently) broke rank with the BBC a year or so ago and, in contrast to his latest protestations, said that he thought the BBC had been biased...against Jeremy Corbyn. The Corbynistas seem to have forgotten that.
