In the footsteps of John Simpson

Jo Coburn, provoking me into assonance

Oh woe! 

I have to say I’ve got annoyed about all the claims of Brexit bias on the BBC. 
You have to imagine the BBC as this massive information tool broadcasting on radio, on television, on websites. 
Now, do we balance every single interview, every single day, every single time we mention Brexit and who’s judging that? Well, no. But is there some ingrained bias? No – and there certainly isn’t here at political programmes. 
I think we’ve done a very good job of hearing the voices from Leave and Remain and then even within that the shades of complexity. I mean I can’t talk for the whole of the BBC and I don’t listen to all of the BBC output all of the time, but I just don’t think it’s justified.

Altogether now (channelling our collective inner Mandy Rice-Davieses)!: Well she would say that, wouldn't she?

  1. Here's the Mail Online take: "Jo puts on a flirty display in nude heels and a royal blue knee length pencil dress with plunging 'spearhead' neckline...looking fresh thanks to her on trend bob and sun kissed complexion, she offers up a feisty defence of BBC journalistic standards..."

    Here's my tip for Jo this Autumn if she wants to maintain BBC neutrality: just because you hate a guest's politics doesn't mean you should avoid looking them in the eye. It's so obvious! - specially when you coo and bill with the ones you like!!
