Leading right-wing biased broadcasters have been rightly accused of letting a “sense of entitlement” drive “hysterical” rows with politicians as the Conservatives turned their fire on the BBC and Channel 4.
So called Senior media figures warned that right-wing biased broadcasters risked breaching their obligation to remain impartial during the election by attempting to embarrass leaders into granting interviews.
It came after Boris Johnson rejected a televised interview with Andrew Neil due to being afraid of being held subject to public scrutiny, along with the scrutiny of journalists. In a clip that has gone viral online with over six million views on social media, the right-wing biased BBC presenter delivered a monologue about Boris Johnson’s refusal to appear and questioned his trustworthiness. The Tories responded in a desperate attempt to divert focus away from their own party, by saying that the format was “tired and broken”.
