BBC News has seen a 56% DROP in viewers since 2014, it has been claimed.
Journalist Marcus Stead revealed the drop on Twitter using data from Statisa, and claimed that the corporation’s news output had seen a 19% drop in the last year.
If true, the statistics reveal a huge decline in one of the UK’s main mainstream news outlets.
The BBC has been widely criticized in recent years for bias on Brexit, and other issues.
The UK’s most popular online Activist, Tommy Robinson also gave the BBC a bashing back in February when he exposed the corporation’s Panorama programme allegedly using dirty tricks to smear him.
He accused the BBC of working to ‘bring down Tommy Robinson.’ and held a mass protest outside the BBC’s offices in Salford.
Mr Robinson revealed members from Hope Not Hate urging a former employee of Robinson to ‘create incriminating fake texts from Tommy’ to be used in the BBC documentary on the activist.
Despite the BBC’s promise that its long-running Panorama strand would follow the BBC’s “strict editorial guidelines”, Mr Robinson along with the help of former employees exposed Panorama’s journalist John Sweeney, as he attempted to create false narratives and sued racial, homophobic and anti-working class slurs and fleeced taxpayers of their Licence Fee cash with lavish lunches.
Sweeney along with Hope Not Hate allegedly tried to force an ex-employee of Robinson to allege ‘Harvey Weinstein Style’ sexual abuse, all of the fake news was caught by undercover cameras.
Sweeney also revealed in the expose that one of his political heroes was the former head of the IRA terror group, Martin McGuinness.
The BBC said in response to the expose: “The BBC strongly rejects any suggestion that our journalism is ‘faked’ or biased.”
“Any programme we broadcast will adhere to the BBC’s strict editorial guidelines.”
“Some of the footage which has been released was recorded without our knowledge during this investigation and John Sweeney made some offensive and inappropriate remarks, for which he apologises. BBC Panorama’s investigation will continue.”
ATTACK ON UKIP
UKIP leader Gerard Batten also claimed that the BBC’s Newsnight was planning a ‘hatchet job’ on him, as the party is set to take the local elections by storm, and obliterate the Tory Party.
The mouthpiece of the Establishment, the BBC contacted a lady who retired from Mr Battens employ in 2012.
They contacted a lady who retired from my employ in 2012.”
Mr Batten asked “What has this got to do with local politics?” and called for a scrap to the BBC licence fee, a key UKIP policy.
“This is from the state broadcaster paid for by YOUR taxes. Scrap the licence fee!” said Batten.
