The problem with the BBC is that it seems to have taken on the role of being the 'opposition'. It seems not to report news anymore but assemble stories with which to hit the Government. Last night it was a collection of stats that were skewed to such an extent as to make the UK the worst effected Covid19 State in the world. All done by selecting stats and a method of calculation to suit their idea. Recently they reported on a demo by BLM and stated it was a peaceful protest yet the footage portrayed a rampaging mob and statues being assaulted as well as Police Officers.
Think it was the g7 stats, not world stats. Can you explain how they were skewed?, to my recollection they were presented in many different ways, one of which showed the UK NOT to be the worst of the g7 group.
I appreciate you cannot criticise anything without watching or reading it, but why do you choose to watch the BBC news if you feel it is so bad?

You are correct, from your list, I would probably watch two.
