CNN,,,, Biased

Started by: Tommy Two Stroke (8708)

For ages now, the American News Network CNN has been running us Brits down, all through the Brexit thing, they were sniping at us, complaining about Brexit, and just about anything else they can think of, and these organiaations are supposed to be 'unbiased' so some editor there does not like Britain, just read the wording in this latest article, even Tonker is not as rude as that.

"It's a country that has just endured national fuel shortages, isolated food shortages, and its government voted this fall to dump untreated sewage onto its famous coastlines.

Oh -- and it has the second highest number of Covid-19 cases in the world.

So who would want to go on vacation in the UK at the moment?
Not many, the figures show"

You supposed CNN to be unbiased?

If the allegations are true how can they be biased if they are correct? They are just stating facts. I know the fuel and food shortages are true but I can't comment on the sewage and covid issues because I know nothing about them?

"How the UK became the sick man of European tourism"

That is the news item headline, which is a snidey dig at what Britain was called in the 1970s, after Whupsy and his mates had brought the country to its knees, the Miners, Power Workers, Dockers, Council Workers, yoo name it, and they were on strike about it in 1979 during the winter of discontent, and that winter was a bloody cold winter, and Britain was then known as the 'Sick Man of Europe'

But Whupsy, yoo reep wot yoo sow, and look what you ended up with in May 1979 'Margaret Thatcher' and it was what you voted for Whupsy

But CNN are always calling Britain, they do me head in with it

I remember Britain being called the sick man of Europe back in the 1960's!

I think it came about as low productivity led to other countries being seen to better the UK.

Thought maybe 'Plague Island' (as said in the link) more concerning.

Well yes, but you can't much lower productivity than what you get when you are on strike can you.

Pay decent wages and respect the workforce and hey presto... no strikes and no disruption to productivity. Easy as that

The miner's weren't on strike in 1979, I don't remember the power workers being on strike that year either.

Tuddy

You are right, and I stand corrected, I should have said the 1970s instead of rather than just 1979, but in 1979 during that winter of discontent, there were a lot of strikes, it was a grim time.

It should have been "after Whupsy and his mates had brought the country to its knees, the Miners, Power Workers, Dockers, Council Workers, yoo name it, and they were on strike about it in the 1970s, culminating in 1979 during the winter of discontent"

It is just a wording error, the information in the piece is still sound

Did anyone notice that the journalist, who wrote that article, Julia Buckley, is from Cornwall, educated at Harlow College in Essex and later at Oxford? Putting the boot in and by a fellow countryman

Really !!!!

I had never bothered to look at who was writing it, well the Cornish Cow

Cornwall wants independence from the UK, so that is probably why she hates us

If this country is as bad as what everybody seems to be saying it is, how come so called refugees are travelling thousands of miles from Asia, Africa and the middle East through continental Europe to risk their lives in little rubber boats to get here.
I'm prepared to wait until someone replies with the correct answer.

it,s simple chris & it,s the employment laws . it,s far easier to get a start here that in europe . they can get more in benefits in other eu countries that here but getting a start is more difficult ? .

They think that Britain is the land of milk and honey, so we need Tonker to go to Syria, Iran, Iraq and Somalia etc to put them reet about Britain

Wrong answer Whups.
If as you say it is much easier to "get a start" in the UK, then why are they coming over here illegally on little rubber boats having chucked all their ID away?
Why are they not coming on planes or proper boats with passports and other documents?
Answer: because they know that the RNLI or the Border patrol will pick them up, ferry them safely to the south coast, then they will be put up in pretty good accomodation until they are ready to be released into the country where they will just disappear into the black economy to earn cash in hand or whatever. They know that the chances of them ever being deported are very slim and that they will have access to the best medical and welfare facilities in the world when they need it.
Try again Whups.

Cheer up. Help may be on the way. John Malone is the major shareholder of the Discovery Channel which is about to take control of CNN. He said on November 19, "I'd like to see CNN restored to what it once was, with real reporters. They certainly don 't have them now."

I am paraphrasing, but that is pretty close.
