Reader’s Comment: The BBC’s capacity to swing votes is fading


In response to David Keighley’s BBC Election Watch: ‘Impartial’ BBC website loads dice against Tories, realarthurdent wrote:

The 2015 general election result and the Brexit referendum results show that the BBC’s influence on voters is on the wane. In both instances their coverage was subtly, or in some cases brazenly, designed to influence voters to vote the “correct” way. I suspect the outcome on June 8th will be the final nail in its news coverage coffin.

They will continue plugging the same New Labour, pro-EU, pro-diversity, pro-globalism line, of course, but since fewer and fewer people rely on the BBC for news these days, they will simply become irrelevant.
