When BNP activists took part to a demo outside the BBC headquarters on the 26 of October (to protest against the cover-up of the paedophile scandal inside the corporation) there was no mention of it on the BBC website or in the news.

Hard-working BNP activist Giuseppe De Santis made a complaint about this lack of coverage and this is the reply he received:

Dear Mr de Santis

Reference CAS-1754056-GQ6RYK

Thanks for contacting us regarding BBC News.
We understand you were unhappy as there was a lack of coverage of a BNP protest outside BBC headquarters on 26 October.

We appreciate in your view; this is both unacceptable and biased.
Whilst we appreciate your concerns, choosing the content of our news bulletins is often a difficult and complicated process.

In making their decisions our editors need to take several different factors into consideration including whether the news is breaking and the perceived level of public interest in the subject matter.

We appreciate that our audience hold a wide range of opinions, and this, coupled with the subjective nature of our editorial decisions means we'd never expect everyone to agree with every decision we take.

There will always be some events or issues which individuals feel warrant more coverage than others, but this in the nature of broadcasting where we cannot please all people all of the time.

Nevertheless, we do note your strength of feeling on this and therefore your comments have been registered on our audience log. This is the internal report of audience feedback which we compile daily for the BBC News team and commissioning executives within the BBC, and also their senior management.

It ensures that your points, and all other comments we receive, are made available and considered across the BBC.
Thanks once again for contacting us.

Kind Regards

Stephanie McGuckin

BBC Complaints

The BBC doesn't expect everyone to agree with every decision they make but it forces everyone to pay a TV licence tax, a levy that is more akin to a protection racket than a charge for a public service.

Such contempt for public opinion is the reason why it's time to heavily downsize the BBC and scrap this unacceptable protection racket as very few are going to miss its Marxist propaganda.
