Compare and contrast

It's a little odd how much energy the BBC are putting into furthering the Lynton Crosby allegations when they just happily just took Tony 'pretty straight guy' Blair's word that Bernie Ecclestone's £1 million donation to the Labour party was in no way linked to tobacco advertising legislation.

Likewise this recent BBC coverage seems somewhat more frenzied than their coverage of the accusations about Peter Mandelson's dealings with aluminium mogul Oleg Deripaska, and his role in setting EU aluminium import policy. In fact the number of Peter Mandelson stories that the BBC decided weren't worth covering were many, even down to the embargo on mentioning his sexual proclivities.

The BBC are the media wing of the Labour party, they angle their news coverage to support the Labour party and attack the Labour party's opponents as much as possible. Can anyone truly doubt this?
