  • Fake news

    I thought CNN was the king of fake news. But since watching the BBC I’ve discovered they wipe the floor with CNN. Every story they run seems to has a leftist slant. With the exception of ‘hard talk’, every guest they bring on is a leftist puppet. I have never them say one positive thing about Trump. They relentlessly push the Nazi, racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic narrative. You have to be blind to miss the fact that this is nothing more than a giant propaganda machine, pushing a globalist, left-wing agenda. They are the serpent in the garden or eden. Smiling assassins.

    The BBC is funded by a mandatory £150 fee in the UK. So why does this app have ads?

    Seriously? You want people to read your articles and whom ever you have writing them can’t spell so many words!!! It’s ridiculous!!! this is seriously getting to be absolutely annoying. Fire the stupid person you have working for you and hire a smarter person. Or at least have a proofreader. You all look like fools.

    Great news service. Puts American News Networks to shame. Gives the facts without bias; I wish other networks would learn from BBC. Outstanding!

    With all the "fake news" sources these days, it's imperative to have a trustworthy news source. The BBC is one of a handful of news sources you can count on to report the facts day in and day out.
