BBC Bias Digest 3 August 2020

DEFUND THE BBC GROUP ‘LAUNCHES AGGRESSIVE AD CAMPAIGN’:  Guido Fawkes (3/8) reported that the Defund the BBC group had launched a ‘provocative’ mobile billboard campaign across the North-west of England  urging followers to cancel their TV licences to support the oiver-75s, who from Saturday (1/8) now had to buy a licence fee.  The article said sites for the posters included Salford Quays (outside the BBC’s northern HQ), Oldham and Rochdale. It also noted that Ofcom had last week published a report about audience attitudes to the media and had found there was a ‘moral dislike’ of the BBC and its licence fee among ‘the working class’.
