watching the morning news on BBC Television during 2000-2004 would soon have
noticed the absence of White faces. From October 2000 to May 2001 it would be
Moira Stuart reading from Monday to Thursday, and Asif Ahmad on Fridays. Some weeks it would be Asif Ahmad only. Other weeks it would be Moira Stuart only.
(Usually Darren Jordon would read the news on "Frost on
Sunday".) Proof - the BBC is racist.
London and South-East News 16th to 20th February
bias has been going on for years, not just in the morning. Take the London and South-East News. In this
particular week of 4 news-reading shifts (morning, , evening and night) there
was a total of 20 (4x5) news-readers: Gillian Joseph presented the news 8
times, Asif Ahmad 8 times and Nina Hossein 3 times. 19 out of 20 news-readers were from ethnic
minorities. Only on Friday 20th morning did Justin Green present the
news. Proof - the BBC is racist.
Saturdays On Saturdays there is a
different rota of news-readers to the Monday to Friday shifts. (The times are
different, although essentially lunchtime, evening and late). The same
news-reader usually reads the news at , and . During a thirteen week
period commencing October 13th 2001 Matthew Amroliwala,
Darren Jordon and George Alagiah alternated. Not
until January 10th 2004 when Peter Sissons read the news did we see a White news-reader. Proof - the BBC is racist.
Sundays The news timings are
slightly different to Saturdays, with a news-reading item on the Frost/Marr
programme. On Sunday May 30th 2004 Gillian Joseph read the news
on the Frost programme, Darren Jordon the and
news, with Nina Hossein reading the South-East News.
At Darren Jordon read the national news.
All news-readers this day were therefore from ethnic minorities. Proof - the BBC is racist.
What is noticeable about watching children's television on BBC2
, which is unavoidable as one has to during the daytime to keep up to
date with Stock Market prices, is the disproportionate number of ethnic minority
presenters - frequently 2 per programme. Back in 2000 it was usually Michael
and Angelica, although over Christmas 2000 it required 3 ethnic minority
presenters. In 2004 the presenters had changed. They were now a Chinese girl
and an Afro-Caribbean male. Proof - the
BBC is racist.
News-readersIn the week March 18th to March 22nd 2002 the morning shift, , had women news-readers reading the London and South-East news on all
five days. All of them were from ethnic minorities. ElainePort on Monday
and Tuesday, LaniMalkane
on Wednesday and Nina Hossein on Thursday and Friday.Proof - the BBC is racist.
East Enders "East Enders" is
the BBC's most watched programme - with more than 10 million viewers. It is
based on life in an area between Stratford and Forest Gate in the
London Borough of Newham, just outside the East End proper. But "East
Enders" is based on the East End of 30 to 40 years ago. It takes
no account of the fact that Newham's population is 30% from ethnic minorities.
There is no sign of the 8,000 Somalis living in the borough. For mile after
mile in any direction from Forest Gate, scene of the infamous police terror
raid, streets are largely Asian. There are 30 mosques in the borough. There is
no reference to the violence in the area, which saw the late local M.P. Tony
Banks mugged at knife-point by 4 non-White youths in 2000. Warring gangs of
Tamils fight gang battles. So why does the BBC not reflect the real world of
2006 Newham? Proof - the BBC is racist.
