it was good to see yet another rather trite reporter from the BBC 'come out' at the end of his career as with Peter Sissons in his biography which was littered with comment legally defensible as 'Veritas'.

To view the original article above and the many prescient comments CLICK HEREThe veteran journalist accused BBC staff of making the left-wing Guardian newspaper their “bible” and political correctness "their creed”.
Mr Buerk, who presents Radio 4’s Moral Maze, was reviewing the memoir of his former colleague, Peter Sissons, who also attacks the BBC for having “institutional bias”.
Writing in political magazine Standpoint, Mr Buerk said: “What the BBC regards as normal and abnormal, what is moderate or extreme, where the centre of gravity of an issue lies, are conditioned by the common set of assumptions held by the people who work for it.”
He added: “It’s all very well-meaning, and painstakingly even-handed, but often notably adrift of the overriding national sentiment.”
Although he praised some BBC managers, including Mark Thompson, the director general, Mr Buerk said some of his bosses were “totally transparent t******.”Related Articles
He concluded: “For those of us who love the place, and what it should stand for, these are worrying times.”
Mr Buerk, 65, has previously criticised BBC newsreaders, saying their role was “the only job that actually requires no talent at all”.
He also caused controversy in 2005 when he claimed life was now lived “according to women’s rules” and men were reduced to little more than “sperm donors”.
Buerke & Sissons have all the conviction of General Sir Michael Jackson or General Dunnatt - heaven forefend that we might find some men of honour who speak out BEFORE they have become eligible for their pensions!
It would be almost as astonishing as hearing the likes of Neil Kinnock, Peter Mandelson, Nick Clegg, David Hoohn, Patten, Presscott and the other parasites in Government who are actually PAID to lie as they are at risk of loosing their obscenely generous EU pensions if they ever speak out against The EU and tell the truth!
Just as The EU will on Monday in its pretend parliament be letting MEPs make sound bites on the subject of the fact that the unelected Snivil Cervants who rule the Dictator Committee of The Commissioner have decided to fund Political Parties.
Well sort of!
The EU will fund Political Parties that firstly help The EU to create Pan EU Political Parties - hence for instance UKIP will be siding with the extremist equivalents of The BNP, the racists, xenophobes, anti Jewish and violent anti homosexual gutter sweepings to help The EU create The Pan EU Political EFD Group.
Those that qualify will then be funded IF and only IF they promote increased integration but that will be easy for UKIP as their partners are ALL pro EU aas are most of their rump of MEPs several of whom openly support The EU and merely wish to pretend they can change it from within!
They do rather come across with all the integrity of General Sir Michael Jackson, General Dunnutt, Michael Sissons and Peter Beurk - all cloned and interchangeable - all too willing to go along with corruption in return for money and until their knuckles get rapped for jeopardising their pensions!
You will of course recal that as with the massive funding of The BBC by The EU, for as long as it promotes EU Corruption - The Military on retirement tend to gain many consultancies and lobby positions and as The British Military is thinned out and sold out to the obscenity of A EUroForce and currently our troops face leadership by a Frenchman (something of an oxymoron on at least 2 counts!).
- we note neither Jackson or the Donnutt nor Kinnock, Patten, Buerk, Sissons have yet been adequately ethical or insufficiently gonnadically challenged to renounce centralised dictatorship where we have an 8% say over our own destiny when will THE PEOPLE get their referendum on IN/OUT - not some top down scam run by Rabid Milliband, Dan Hannan, Bob Crow, Mark Seddon, Marc Glendenning, Bryan Denny and their crazed and EU funded chums.
It is almost impossible to unknit the tangle deliberately designed by the likes of Julia Middleton and her malign claque of Common Purpose.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco - German - Italian axis of 1939 - 1945.
