From the Telegraph:
The BBC was last night plunged into a damaging general election row after it admitted equipping three hecklers with microphones and sending them into a campaign meeting addressed by Michael Howard, the Conservative leader….
Last night, the BBC claimed that the exercise was part of a “completely legitimate programme about the history and art of political heckling” and said that other parties’ meetings were being “observed”. However, The Telegraph has established that none of Tony Blair’s meetings was infiltrated or disrupted in similar fashion.
Of course, this would never happen in the USA, where journalists are trained to be objective, unlike that amateur operation at the BBC. And I’m sure it’s merely a coincidence that the employees at the government-owned and operated BBC should actively favor the party that supports increasing the size and scope of government.
No wonder the Democrats seek a nationalized media.
