I know I risk being relegated to the lunatic fringe by bringing this up (again!), but this morning I accidentally watched the BBC citizenship lecture that's entitled 'breakfast'. (apologies if this already has a thread, I couldn't see it but admit to only looking at the first page)

The attitude and analysis during the 'business' (read house-panic) section was shocking. I'd invite anyone who hasn't watched it in a while to have a look, just to re-orient yourselves with either how off-the-planet the programme is, or consider how the whole HPC belief thing is akin to reporting kidnap by little green men.

Maybe someone could set up a web-site or blog to keep track of the lies/deliberate distortions? Or does anyone know where a respectable one exists?

These people do a fair job of pointing out the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporations many lies and distortions.

There used to be a poster on here called W12 who actually worked for the BBC, but even he wouldn't defend the BBC's Breakfast "output."

I saw the words 'housing market recovers' or something similar in a big headline behind the bloke waffling on.

I tried to reconcile that headline with the content which was - builders want more mortgage availability.

Did i miss something? :blink:

Maybe you've just become accepting of it...or I'm becoming more intolerant!

Mrs D has told me to stop shouting at Bill and the bird who looks like a boy with a vulgar diamond ring.

I will be happily having a conversation, eating breakfast, or preparing to walk the dog when from nowhere I have a bout of Tourrettes aimed at the morons on my screen.

Mrs D is getting fed up of it and is worried about my blood pressure.

Accepting???? Me???????? Wash your mouth out!!!!!

Sorry I meant 'more accustomed' or 'used to it' perhaps.

I also got the 'heart attacks happen in the morning' talk from my dear wife today. That 'Bill' thing is hideous isn't it? I'm usually a live n let live sort of fella but him...grrrrrrrrr

Here in north america the tv is truly fucking shite. I've just setup a UK VPN just so I can watch stuff on iPlayer - and believe me it's worth it.
