Tory fury as BBC sends hecklers to bait Howard
The BBC was last night plunged into a damaging general election row after it admitted equipping three hecklers with microphones and sending them into a campaign meeting addressed by Michael Howard, the Conservative leader.
…the hecklers began shouting slogans that were “distracting and clearly hostile to the Conservative Party”.
These included “Michael Howard is a liar”, “You can’t trust the Tories” and “You can only trust Tony Blair”.
Why is anyone surprised. That’s the role of public funded TV. Like it’s spawn, the ABC, the BBC has always had a left bias and a belief that their role is to make any conservative government look bad.
