The Noble Liar: How and why the BBC distorts the news to promote a liberal agenda [9781785903496]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

To some, it is the voice of the nation, yet to others it has never been clearer that the BBC is in the grip of an ideology that prevents it reporting fairly on the world.

Many have been scandalised by its pessimism on Brexit and its one-sided presentation of the Trump presidency, whilst simultaneously amused by its outrage over `fake news'.

The author of this controversial book, who himself spent twenty-five years working for the BBC as a reporter and executive, argues that the Corporation needs to be reminded that what is `fake' rather depends on where one is standing.

From where his feet are planted, the BBC's own coverage of events often looks decidedly peculiar, peppered with distortions, omissions and amplifications tailored to its own liberal agenda. This punchy polemic from the author of Can We Trust the BBC? promises to add to the debate over how the licence- fee payers' money is spent, and whether the BBC is a fair arbiter of the news, or whether it is a conduit for pervasive and institutional liberal left-wing bias.
AUTHOR: Robin Aitken is a former BBC reporter and journalist. He spent twenty-five years working across all levels within the Corporation, from local radio to the Today programme. He is the author of Can We Trust the BBC? (Continuum, 2007). He is co-founder of the Oxford Foodbank and was awarded the MBE for this work in 2014.
