When I asked you re the BBC Media Show interview with James Harding to guess what my two word response was a reaction to, I knew that Beeb Bias Craig's isthebbcbiased.blogspot.co.uk would give a full report on that same interview.
Here's that report http://isthebbcbiased.blogspot.in/2017/01/one-thing-that-is-true-of-bbc-is-of.html and here's the part that elicited my reaction:
' SH: I guess is . . . I mean, this is a very cheeky question . . .
JH: Hm-hmm (laughs)
SH: And there's no reason why you should have a proper answer to it, in fairness . . .
JH: Can I just say, 'No I don't'(laughs)
SH: Do you . . . well, that might be the answer. Do you know anybody on the journalistic or editorial staff at the BBC, who is pro-Trump?
JH: (two second pause) (inhales) So . . .
SH: As an individual I mean.
JH: So, so really important . . . there's a really important thing here, which is that, people inside the BBC, they are all journalists, actually, one of the great misunderstandings about journalists is that there is such a thing as groupthink. Journalists, by nature, have really contrary opinions, they have different opinions, certainly when, when there's a group of think— er, people who go in one direction, they, by nature, want to go the other direction, you know them as well as I do. Erm, one thing that is true of the BBC is of course, you leave all your personal opinions at the door.'
Craig's response is "Yeah right", mine was a little stronger.
Does anyone truly believe a that any BBC 'journalist' or editor is pro Trump or b) that all BBC 'journalists' leave their 'personal opinions at the door'?
I think bullshit is a fair response.
