Ian Hislop makes his point on Have I Got News For You.

This should be self-explanatory. Any readers who think the BBC isn’t biased against Labour and for the Conservatives should read the reports to which the source article links.

When Ian Hislop, editor of current affairs magazine Private Eye posed this provocative question about BBC bias on a BBC show, it was predictably awkward:

We should remember that Hislop is a satirist, and was arguably playing with reports and complaints of anti-Corbyn bias in the media in general and the BBC in particular.

Nevertheless, he makes an important point about media bias, particularly in national broadcasters like the BBC who stake their reputation on their impartiality.

In Theresa May’s own words, this is going to be ‘the most important election’ in her lifetime.

So it pays to call out bias and prejudicial reporting where you see it.
