Hi Ray
Do you know, you are absolutely right. I cannot remember the last time I heard a report from America or Canada that wasn't just about finances, or a brief update on your House of Representatives and what they are saying, with little background detail.The rest is just news , like any news from anywhere. Never occured to me.There used to be almost as much from America as there was from Britain. They bury very important stories from Europe and the rest of the world until they can hide them no longer. New EU Internet laws have shut out so many many news sources too, like Russia. If it were not for social media much would remain unknown,even things as serious as Hong Kong, which they are only now having to come out and report on as the UN will get involved and Britain is a signatory to the sign off, when our lease was up some time ago and we gave it back. The same with Spain, Italy and France and nothing about Sweden. The horrific statistics on the attacks on women, who are living with self imposed curfews in Europe goes unreported. The BBC has massive EU funding too, with embedded reporters.
You are certainly nothing like our 'Lefties' who are outright Marxists, and shut down debates with personal insults, BUT they have had their day. I know I could sit down with you and discuss anything without fear of attack, however much we disagreed, I know we could understand the other's point of view. It's all about where it's GOING,whereas Lefties here just cannot link seemingly unconnected FACTS because it doesn't suit them.
On the night Mr Trump was elected it was downright embarrassing to hear the BBC reporter in New York with an American co-host.Having made non stop vicious attacks on him for so long he was dumbstruck when told he had won.He flapped and blustered, said it must be wrong, said not all the votes were counted, asked if a recount would be demanded, and as good as demanded one. The American was baffled and kept reiterating the result, like you would explain something to a bewildered child.
There is nothing impartial about the awful BBC.They got so PC that they ate themselves and look like dinosaurs.They tend to over focus on one topic which goes through all formats. There was even an 'adaptation' of War of the Worlds which was laughed off the screen.We had months of how wonderful the EU is, months of How wonderful the poor Migrants are, last summer months of Death, everything from funeral costs, hospices, fatal illnesses ad infinitum.
Advertising is very different onscreen here and the BBC uses having none as their excuse for the license fee. I hope they get axed to be honest, and have to stand on their own feet.
When I was in London the stations were so overloaded with politics I was glad to escape.It's completely different where I am now.
Yve
