Whereas BBC World managed back in 2017 to only mention the AfD’s incredible performance in the German election for about 2 minutes in a one hour broadcast, this time round they did even worse by focusing solely on the Liberal Democrats and the Greens rather than the obvious story of the night, the big win of Nigel Farage’s ‘Brexit Party’ in the EU elections.
Viewers on social media slammed the BBC’s obvious ‘biased’ Euro election coverage which allowed former Labour spin doctor Alastair Campbell to accuse Mr Farage of taking Russian money to organize his campaign.
Former UKIP MEP Patrick O’Flynn said: ‘I know it’s early, but I must say BBC coverage is missing the obvious huge story – the Brexit Party has won these elections and won them big.’
Another twitter stated: ‘Your biased Euro election coverage was appalling, Alastair Campbell lied about Iraq, and continues to lie and spin against democracy, aided and abetted by the ‘impartial’ BBC. You know where you can stick your licence! I’ll save my roubles and watch YouTube.’
