No prizes for guessing who was the worst offender - by some way - in August! Yes, the coveted award for the title of 'Beeb's Most Biased' goes to....(drum roll)...Jim Naughtie.
Here are his I.C.s for August:
6/8 Grant Shapps, Conservative - 1.2
11/8 George Osborne, Conservative - 1.2
12/8 Ed Vaizey, Conservative - 0.9
31/8 Nicola Sturgeon, SNP - 0.4
8/8 John McFall, Labour - 0.3
5/8 Tim Yeo, Conservative - 0
11/8 Andrew Dismore, Labour - 0
13/8 Lynne Featherstone, Lib Dem - 0
11/8 Ivan Lewis, Labour - 0
10/8 Kim Howell, Labour - 0
6/8 Quentin Davies, Labour- 0
The averages here are:
Conservatives - 0.8
SNP - 0.3
Labour - 0.1
Lib Dems - 0
The Conservative average would have been higher were it not for Tim Yeo, that most left-wing of Tories advocating action on AGW, bringing out Naughtie's kind-to-a-Tory side for once. Just to remind you, July's figures were 1.4 for the Conservatives, 0.5 for Labour and 0 for the Lib Dems. June's were 1 for the Conservatives and 0 for Labour!!
Bias, month in month out from Naughtie.
