The last couple of weeks have seen a series of ‘failures’ by the BBC in relation to Labour and its leader Jeremy Corbyn.
First the BBC showed the wrong footage on its Newsnight programme, claiming it was Corbyn’s response to Philip Hammond’s budget statement, when it fact it was more than six months old.
Then the BBC subtitles showed Corbyn talking about Hezbollah, when in fact he was talking about Prince Harry and ‘his brother’.
After that, Radio 4’s Today programme allowed GQ’s Tory-supporting editor – who paid £20,000 to write David Cameron’s biography – airtime to smear Corbyn after his interview with the magazine unchallenged and to claim his staff were Corbyn supporters without probing the claim. It turned out to be untrue.
Accidents or errors? Perhaps. But it’s an interesting coincidence that all the BBC’s ‘errors’ lately seem to be in the same direction, all undermining Labour.
