They must never refer to any Syrians as rioters or even migrants. Nope, just 'refugee' as if it is an umbrella term that covers everyone.

i searched 'bbc refugee crisis' and found an article that uses both the words you claim they never use:
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38090753
This is the least important point you could possibly quote.

I even asked you twice to post your opinion on why you think it's not very left wing. Am I to assume you agree with every other point?

i mean, the fact that i blew a hole in your third point with a single google search leads me to believe you're just parroting the garbage you hear about bbc being incredibly left wing.

i think they do side towards liberal viewpoints more often, but my point was they aren't completely ~~~equality for all government should control the market full socialism~~~, which is what "very" left wing is. actual left wingers (which are different from liberals, regardless of what the alt-right echo chamber screams at you) also believe the BBC is biased.

yeah, socially equality and equity are rooted on the left but do you seriously think those are bad values to carry in society?

also i either disagree or think you're widely exaggerating on most of your points. you really think an organization that is 85% white is discriminating against all of them?
hey

Toblet where are you getting your information from? It sounds like you're just copy and pasting an atguement you've read on reddit before.

You sound like one of those people that's like "entire argument discredited because I disproved a joke!" (Onision)

Oh so because I have a different opinion I'm automatically alt-right?

Some of the quotes I find in that article are incredibly disturbing. Yet you compare this with genuine concerns of the public? Find a source that suggests that the BBC is biased towards the right in an article that's 'liberal' as you say, and doesn't support communism.

No they're not bad values. Too bad they're not practiced, though. Even by many 'liberals'.

For example, feminism, said to be the equality of men and women. In practice exclusively focuses on the rights of women. It ignores men's issues such as suicide rates and child custody. And most media outlets are proud to say they support feminism.

Okay maybe I exaggerated a little. However, the BBC has already achieved it's 'diversity' quota and still appologized for being too 'white'.
http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/670266/BBC-advert-white-people-ethnic-equality-staff-job-internship

It can thus be argued that it is trying to get rid of white employees wherever possible. However, the BBC has already commented that it is having trouble finding people from 'ethnic minority backgrounds' and thus are forced to hire more whites at a higher rate that it would like. Hey, I guess you can't force people to do something they don't want to do.

However, taking light of a negative situation, this has turned into some hilarious cases of karma.
https://www.theguardian.com/media/2016/oct/02/bbc-presenter-jon-holmes-the-now-show-sacked

A white politically correct guy fired for being white now complaining about being fired for racism. People like this only want diversity if it doesn't affect them. The hypocrisy. Something tells me more stories like this will prop up over the coming years.

The internet? Do you have anything to contribute, or?

Also I'll add this before you try to refute anything else, feminism and third wave feminism are two very very different things.

And I was just asking if you had anything to contribute. Triggered much?

I know this but many others don't. Feminism today is not what it once was. I was referring to the feminism of today.

The topic is U.S. 2016 Elections. If you want to discuss that, have a debate, whatever, that's fine. This is starting to turn into something else. Be mature everyone.
