BBC’s Lefty Laura – Nice Accent, Nasty Bias!
I wasn’t going to comment on the disgraceful leftist bias shown by the UK publicly-owned broadcaster’s Laura Kuenssberg…
….that shamelessly slanted question to Trump, carefully crafted to mislead viewers into thinking British people were in lock-step with the lousy left.
I quote from Breitbart, whose coverage was as ever to the point.
“Mr President, you’ve said before that torture works, you’ve praised Russia, you said you want to ban some Muslims from coming to America, you’ve said there should be punishment for abortion. For many people in Britain, those sound like alarming beliefs. What do you say to our viewers at home who are worried about some of your views, and are worried about your becoming leader of the free world.”
What did this pampered little posh girl learn about impartial journalism when she attended one of the most expensive private schools (Laurel Bank) in Glasgow?
How dare she frame her question to The Donald in terms that constituted the dismissal of all Brits outside her leftist alternative universe as of no, or at least lesser, consequence than whining pinko creeps.
I like Laura’s Scots accent – Scottish English – Wikipedia – especially the way she pronounces ‘food.’
A lot of emigre Scots adopt the peculiar English Home Counties, so-called ‘Received Pronunciation,’ modulation of vowels, which makes the ‘oo‘ in food into an echo of the German umlaut sound. It is not.
Food rhymes with wood, should, good, could, etc., and ought to be pronounced similarly.
But I detest her bias, which was just heard again, on BBC International, reporting from Turkey, where Theresa May had a nice wee visit with Erdogan The Islamist.
No time for the guy myself, but I’m a blogger.
Little Posh Laura is meant to be an objective reporter.
So how come she ended her report with more snide bias, viz. a warning that political leaders are ‘often judged by the company they keep.’
- Arguably so, or maybe not.
- But that’s not for Lefty Laura to lecture us, or our leaders, about.
