Over the last two years, I have been appalled by the incessant anti Brexit output of the BBC, in general and the news programmes in particular, to the extent that I've stopped listening to the news. From a so called public service, with compulsory 'tax' revenue, I find this unacceptable, I await the finding of this 'survey'.

J Kitchen: I could not agree more - it is a scandal. Bbc interviewers never ask the right questions as they concentrate on their relentless anti government rhetoric. I cannot believe what goes on IN THE BBC NEWS HQ. As for Emily Maitlliss becoming lead interviewer on Newsnight its ridiculous as she must be the worst interviewer on TV. Each time in an interview she latches on to a very minor point and worries the person interviewed to death to answer her questions. These are nearly always of the hypothetical " yes I know that might NOT happen but suppose it does he/she woulfd have to resign "! During the U.S. last election camapaign she interviewed a lady Senator and every time Emily tried to sum up by saying " so what you mean is....?" the answer was invariably NO! Finally the lady said ". You do not really seem to understand the American political scene do you?". Her Brexit summing up last night fell into the usual trap. I will probably watch in future only when Kirsty wark is on. Thank god Evan Davies has moved on so no more shall we have to listen to his standard technique of talkin " over" anybody who disagrees with him. Nick Robinson does much the same in the mornings on Radio Four. I wonder if they would ever employ anyone who admits to reading The Dail Mail?!
