I've always said that the BBC are neutral betwen Tories and labour - they're happy to attack the Tories (from the left) or Labour (from the left).
Good to hear this from the BBC's ex-business editor, Jeff Randall.
But surely the BBC's journalists give the government a hard time?
'They attack Labour ministers, but usually for not being sufficiently left-wing.'
On business :
'On the whole, they treated business as if it was a criminal activity'
On the BBC and immigration :
'Whenever we had an anti-immigration interviewee, it was a Nazi with a tattoo on his face who looked like he'd just bitten the head off a cat. I pointed out that it's the white working class who have to make immigration work. Immigrants don't move to Hampstead, mate'.
and on BBC bias :
'It's not a conspiracy. It's visceral. They think they are on the middle ground'
