BBC - Be politically neutral or remove the licence fee
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
More people consider the BBC an accurate and trustworthy source of TV news than any other channel in the UK, but the corporation it not rated as highly for impartiality as its Channel 4 counterpart, according to research by Ofcom (16th Dec 2015).
Let that sink in. Your hard earned money goes (mandatorily) to a media channel LESS impartial than a commercial competitor according to Ofcom.
simply searching the term "BBC political bias" brings back link after link demonstrating the BBCs lack of impartiality.
The British public needs to see far greater oversight of the BBC, from a neutral governing body, to ensure they give all political views a balanced platform.
In these days of "fake news" and "social media news platforms" the BBC should be a shining light in terms of political neutrality.
If the BBC cannot do this in a robust and transparent manner then the mandatory licence fee should be scrapped.
