Quote

Ex-BBC journalist John Humphrys is joining the Daily Mail as a regular weekly columnist, replacing Peter Oborne who stood down in October.

Humphrys left Radio 4’s Today programme in September after 32 years and has already returned to the airwaves presenting Classic FM’s Sunday afternoon show.

His first public swipe at the BBC, just two days after his departure, was covered in the pages of the Daily Mail which carried extracts from his memoir A Day Like This that accused the corporation of having an “institutional liberal bias”.

The 76-year-old said he was “delighted” to be joining the Mail, saying he had spent “more years than I care to remember” writing “on and off” for the paper. He starts his new column on Saturday.

“The Mail is a paper that knows what it believes in, and proudly says so, but it does not demand that its columnists toe an approved line,” Humphrys said. “That’s the big test of a paper’s integrity.

 

Rat *******. Always knew he was no good.

And people say the BBC has a left wing bias!  His comment about The Daily Mail tells you all you need to know about the man.

It does.  He is entitled to his own opinion and he is entitled to work for anyone he wants to who pays him.

Corbyn is a socialist I see no issue in that being part of any debate - indeed he wanted it o be part of the debate

All of the stuff about Brexit was totally remainder bias.  The BBC did not do anywhere enough to condemn the Labour party for anti-Antisemitism.  

In any event the election is done now and whilst I respect that you have a different opinion to my own there is not really any little point arguing about it.

76...why doesn't he give a younger person a chance.  He doesn't need the money and he could keep active using his status to support charitable causes.

Jon Snow given warning by Channel 4 bosses after allegations he shouted "f*** the Tories" at Glastonbury

Reports last month reported the veteran newsreader had shouted abuse aimed at the Conservative party while dancing with a group of students at festival.

Has it been altered?  Just looks like poor resolution?

You can clearly see the colour and shape of the hat has been changed to make it look more like a Russian winter hat.

And then the entire image of Corbyn has been set against a backdrop of Red Square.

Shameless propaganda.

Maybe because he likes working.- many people do - If I am in good health I may want to work - I love doing what I do - I have a guy working with me who is 68 he is a fantastic employee never late - totally conscientious - better than some of the snowflake employees I have got rid of. Which is not to say I do not have younger peopkle in my company the range between 19 - 68.

Yeah but it was a Lenin cap before, so you might actually say they are making him look less if a communist.

 

Not much point in getting into a big debate though.  The simplest solution is to stop the licence fee being compulsory, and make the BBC put up a paywall to protect revenue.

Less communist? Then why the Red Square fakery? They knew exactly what they were doing.
