Purple Cameron - thanks "unbiased" BBC !

Just watching the BBC's attempts to take credit for killing of David Cameron on TV. The BBC One news at 10 had a quote where the reporter ended saying they will of course try to spin different parts of this to different papers - fine comment - all the parties do it, but the BBC only says it of the Conservative party.

But the initial reaction is the lighting - David Cameron has shadows on his face that come across as purple - when none of their precious interviewers have them. The control room must see this. I don't believe its credible to ascribe this to incompetence - in my view it must be deliberate.
The BBC is a great danger to democracy in the BBC due to the institutional political bias of its news staff.

As it happens he's doing well under hostile questioning - especially from Newsnight's political reporter - bet he's never voted Conservative in his entire life.

Now they are trying the single parent ploy .....

Update: David Cameron did well - given the hostility of some of the questioning. The think is a Labour minister - let alone Gordon Brown - would never try to answer the questions the way Cameron did. They would just repeat the banal message their blackberry had given them in the morning.

This was the funniest and most original complaint against Auntie I've seen in a long time, well done!

Well done. I really think there must be something that can be done about Pravda (sorry, the BBC) - there should be something organised perhaps

sorry - thinking aloud. I suppose we right-wing people don't do mass protests, but perhaps we ought to. Complaints don't matter to them - they just think we are all wrong, and ignore them.

Loz - the screen shot doesn't really do justice to the lighting effects, but it was all that's left once I'd switched to realplayer - that prevents screen grabs. ( The still from the BBC media player once it had handed over to realplayer).
