Tweedledum and Tweedledee

By updating posts from earlier today (which I've subsequently buried under long new posts) I may have I may have inadvertently 'avalanched' myself and disguised the main point of today's posts. 

However much Tweedledum and Tweedledee (Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell) may accuse the BBC of bias (from 'the other side'), their claims of bias (however frustrating they must be to some people who work at the BBC) are surely useful to the BBC as a whole as they seem to give credence to the 'we get accused of bias from both sides so we must be getting it about right' (complaints from both sides) argument. 

But in reality they don't give credence to the 'complaints from both sides' argument. 

Why? Because the claims of bias from Tweedledum and Tweedledee are demonstrably false. They are fit only for the bin (though they'll doubtless end up in a recycling bin and get recycled ad nauseam.)

There's no substance to them whatsoever. Disproving them is like shooting paraplegic fish in a tiny barrel. 

And worse, when closely examined, their fake claims of BBC bias actually steer us towards the monstrous crow of truth: that the BBC is biased in the exact opposite direction to that which Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell claim it is.  


  1. This Adonis and Alistair BBC Bias thing was obviously cooked up at one of their secret planning meetings chaired by Blair or who knows. It's only purpose is to whip the BBC to be even more biased in their coverage of Brexit (were that possible). There's probably stuff that goes on behind the scenes as well to exert pressure - you know, lunches with Hall where "concern" is expressed about coverage.

  2. Campbell was on Nolan show Sunday night so I switched off
