Is the BBC biased? [Copy link] 中文

The British Broadcasting Corporation has waged an extraordinary campaign against China over the past few months. Despite its claims to superiority and impartiality, the organization has produced an overwhelming proportion of intensively negative coverage focused on China which has led its editorial coverage, featuring on its news homepage throughout July, August and September.

Although this has focused largely around events in Hong Kong, it has also covered a range of other topics including anything which may be used to place the country in a negative light, no matter how trivial it might be. In doing so, it has placed a critical take on China at the forefront of its coverage every single day for several weeks now.

The stories themselves have not offered much nuance in their coverage. Rather than offering a balanced perspective and considering the other side of the argument, they have instead passed liberal assumptions off as given and dismissed dissenting views as mere propaganda.

This has included the religious-like glorification of Hong Kong protesters and their narrative, the demonization of the city's police forces, repeating and talking American government talking points at face value and the mobilization of anti-China "experts" to project misinformation.

When considering it all, the BBC appears to be waging a full on information war and public opinion campaign against China.

Is the BBC biased? Its defenders will say it isn't. Believing in the rudimentary liberal assumption that only "other" countries with different political systems engage in "propaganda" and that the BBC is therefore truthful, honest and as it claims, impartial. It cannot possibly have an agenda behind it.

But what's your opinion?

Off course it's biased, it let me think about what the UK media report about the Three Gorges dam wall a few months ago..."The Three Gorges Dam Wall is Buckled and "At Risk of Collapse!"

What is my opinion ? My opinion is that each reporter and each news organisation is freely entitled to present news items as it wishes. Surely China's coverage of events in other countries is not completely unbiased and offers a slant on news items that suits its own political system. Beijing repeatedly insists that what is happening in HK is an internal, domestic matter. If the BBC and other media organisations seek to offer their own views of events happening there or on the mainland that is up to them. In this digital age of internet media coverage China can't control news reportage over the entire world as it attempts to do within its own borders. Vive la difference.

News is a special commodity.
To westerners, news is a consumer commodity!
If one traced BREXIT, it was clear that Boris Johnson cooked that UK gave to EU billions each week but only received a small insignificant fraction in return. Yes, present UK PM Boris twisted and turned so that he could be UK PM. Now, he is cooking himself in the same hot soup!

GREAT FOR UK!

"Beijing repeatedly insists that what is happening in HK is an internal, domestic matter."
Are you disputing that?  Isn't it so plain that it is 'an internal, domestic matter'?  Or, are you, like the foreign media, trying to justify meddling in it?  The BBC should stick to reporting facts, not engage in promoting its own agenda, if it wants to be respected!
