None of them seem neutral, both BBC and itv are singing his bloody praises.

I don't want any parties propaganda coming through, we're not Russia or China and we're not all tory.

Bottom line, the media is owned by a bunch of rich psychopaths. They're hardly likely to be impartial are they.

I disagree with the conservative policies but as someone who changed their name it's just ignorant to refer to them as the name they choose not to be known by.

A lot of people think it's a sound budget. He certainly wrong-footed the opposition, and there isn't a line from then yet. It always takes a few days for expert analysis to come through, and as there are no obvious holes there's nothing on which to hang negative comment. That may or may not change when the number crunchers really get at the detail.

Even Damian McBride is praising the Chancellor's performance (and says he wants to shoot whoever came up with the Mao idea).

I posted this before the budget was announced.

BBC reporter outside number 10 was gushing about how clever he is and what a tricky situation he is in. She also said an outright lie so I turned it over to itv and got piers instead.

I put Aljezera or however you spell it was on this morning. It was actually very good, very balanced and had an interesting report on Russia.

I don't want any political views from any news reporters. Why should they get to lie and be a tory propaganda machine. The news should be neutral, it shouldn't be used as a political platform for one parties politics.

I always thought the Beeb was more left than right wing.

And I don't think any broadcast news can be completely impartial, if only because someone has chosen what to broadcast.

And I think the budget suprised a lot of people, in a good way.

But don't let that get in the way of a bit of Tory bashing.

I think the BBC were more left when Blair was in/trying to get in.

Now they want to keep corbyn out so are being very clever in what they say and how they say it.

I want the news especially the BBC which is a public broadcast service to be neutral. Why should they take our money to help fund it and then spout off any political agenda.

But don't let that put you off assuming..

Sorry if I assumed anything about your affiliations from your use of Gideon and your moaning about the Beeb singing his praises hmm

Is it really all that bad to call him Gideon? It was good enough for his parents.

The biased reporting towards the Tories is insane - even the Independent and Guardian sometimes feel like they're restraining themselves - and anything Murdoch owned is firmly wedged up his rectum. Which makes sense. Rich people are going to protect and promote the guy who's helping them get richer.

I've noticed more than ever how terribly biased all the news media seems to be against Labour, Corbyn in particular.

Never before have we seen the amount of hounding of the leader of the opposition that he's been subject to. Every single little thing he does is reported with a negative spin. Paparazzi outside his house as he leaves for the morning? I've only seen this before on election days, yet he seems to have had it daily.

I'm really disappointed in the BBC.
