Bias is a curious beast.
Isn't it just?
I don't watch Eastenders
Surely you must have a microsecond or two between bursts of spray-painting the internet with your every thought? Then again, maybe not…
but I believe that London Mayor Boris Johnson made a cameo appearance in "The Vic".
Who, pray, are these soi-disant EastEnders?
Big deal, eh?
If you say so.
Well, it bothers the BBC who ran an item on it this morning...
Orders from central command c.c. Sir Michael Lyons & Ben Bradshaw: All outlets must mention EastEnders/Boris. Typical!
…pointing out that a/ Their hero Red Ken never got on despite seeking appearances,
Typical pro-Tory bias. (Can that be right?)
b/ That Boris was "a national joke"
Are you sure that that was The BBC's opinion?
and c/ Is this how we are going to treat "our coming Tory masters"?
A serious admission from the save-Gordon-at-any-cost Beeboids, surely?
d/ It was all simply too awful.
Well, it was EastEnders.
Let's re-wind: The BBC, which makes EastEnders, apparently turned down Ken Livingstone for a cameo in the Walford soap. You maintain that The BBC is upset that Their hero Red Ken never got on the show.
So The BBC is complaining that The BBC did not allow Ken Livingstone to appear on The BBC's most popular programme, whilst The BBC allowed Boris Johnson to do so. Am having trouble working out who is the hero and who is the whinger in that scenario. Perhaps you can help?
And the critique of Boris's turn - and the joke about our Tory masters - came not from the BBC itself but from the TV critic of The Times, whose hands-on owners, the Murdochs, are vociferously opposed to the BBC's existence.
Outstanding. Give yourself a break. If you can.
