Feature by guest reporter David Layzelle
BBC Chairman, Lord Tony Hall, issued an edict stating that every statement made by a politician should be questioned for authenticity.
With the BBC Royal Charter, and his salary, due to be reviewed as early as 2027, Lord Hall is anxious that the BBC is no longer seen as delivering biased and toadying reporting. Instead, he wants it to become one of the world’s foremost news sources for The Truth.
Critics of the BBC point to its
tax grant license fee which biases reporting towards its masters. Particular sucking-up is evident in Royal reporting and the uncannily fair treatment of politicians who are quite obviously lying.
The move will see the creation of a flagship news program called “Your mouth moved – you’re lying” in which senior news pundits will pour derision on everything said by their political guests.
Presenters already lined up for the Chair include Andrew “Brillo Pad” Neil, Evan Davis, and Laura Kuenssberg. Laura offered to take a salary cut just to get to the “bastards” whose lies she’s been
reporting on passing off as the truth throughout her career.
Piers Morgan was initially linked to the program, but he was rejected by BBC bosses who thought his own inability to tell the truth might confuse politicians.
Jeremy Corbyn and Sir Vince Cable both called this latest move by the BBC “unhelpful”.
Tory leader wannabe Jeremy Hunt described the move as: “Something that would need to be examined for true credibility in the fullness of time”. He then ambled off to present a series of polarised statements about EU membership.
When informed of the proposal. Tory leadership frontrunner Boris Johnson giggled, tousled his hair then entered his private residence. He was later heard shouting but it’s not clear whether this was in connection with the new BBC show or not.
He is lined up to be their first guest.
