Whats all this about impartiality for talking heads?

Conservatives have small dicks and fragile egos, and complain if someone actually calls them out on their bullshiat.
Same stuff, different day.
Meh.

The UK has some goofball rules about TV presenters. If they mention one brand of something, they have to point out that other brands are available. If some shiatty lunatic is denied leadership opportunity, they have to pretend not to be relieved.

It's dumb.

Authoritarians are deeply insecure people. That insecurity is partly why they're authoritarians in the first place.

I don't think it shows partiality for a BBC News reporter to mock Johnson. He's openly held the truth and the BBC in contempt while in office. It's not showing favoritism, or demeaning a candidate. It's defending the mission of the BBC by putting a prat in his place. Johnson is objectively bad for rational thought.

The BBC is funded by the government and they are not supposed to be seen taking sides, just report the news. It's not dumb.

One of my favorite hobbies is combing through porn comics and reading the comments on cuckholdry porn. For some reason, fascists always show up there, and cuckholdry porn gives them an existential crisis lol

I thought impartiality when reporting the news was a good thing, right? Isn't that one of the fundamental problems with left- or right-leaning pseudo-news organizations which taint reporting facts so heavily with opinion that they create biases and information bubbles?

You know, if she'd been saying that (eg) the labour party were better than the conservative party (even though that may be true) that would have been in breach of impartiality.

Expressing relief that a man who was so demonstrably dishonest that his own party forced him to resign is not going to be back in charge is hardly bias, its common sense.

Why?

it's not dumb until you realize that 'impartiality' is absolutely never to the benefit of the left, and only to the right

I guess that's the BBC's outrageousness punishment that is equal to RT's alleged sacking of the kill and eat all the Ukriane babby childrens talking head.

Particularly since BJ was *already* recently sacked for incompetence working in that very leadership role.

hardinparamedic: The dick jokes in this headline are *mwah*


Good work for sure, but they could've stuffed one more up in there I bet.

I used BJ off the top of my head, for starters, because it was low hanging fruit.

BBC and Johnson are definitely dicks, and sacked is a testicular reference. Am I missing a dick?

She wasn't sacked though, she was suspended

Can you really suspend a BBC presenter effectively? Seems like a slippery proposition.

Subby, not "sacked", temporarily taken off air.
