    Why do they have a BREXIT bias?

    No, they don't have a Brexit bias. Just because you get your knickers in a bunch whenever someone is shown on TV with a viewpoint you disagree with does not mean bias. Just because it tends not to descend to the myth-peddling of the Sun and the Mail does not mean bias.

    Unfortunately the BBC is very much likely to be EU bias, especially with the main party leaders all in favour of staying.

    The Lib Dems are largely an irrelevance now. Corbyn is privately eurosceptic, under pressure from many in his party, and the Conservatives are split right down the middle, with many senior cabinet ministers advocating Brexit. So I don't think Cameron's influence counts to all that much right now in this regard.

    Anyway, I put it to you that the BBC only appears biased to you because it is in fact trying to report the facts, but your favoured news sources are in fact heavily biased themselves, but you don't see it that way because you agree with them.

    Corbyn will support EU membership openly, so is Nicola, so are the Lib dems and also Cameron so yeah all parties are. The facts easily point to leave but you won't know that from the biased BBC, check out Question Time and you realise how biased it can be, has been 4 vs 1 o the panel on a number of occasions.

    The BBC receives funding from the EU, and has been noted in more than one report now to have a left-wing bias (an affinity for multiculturalism/white-guilt and a fondness for islamofascism), both facts hint at why they hold certain biases towards staying in.

    Yes, it's that simple, isn't it. The only way someone can disagree with you, the only possible way they can have a different opinion, can never be because they have a different perspective from you, is because they are mindless idiot sheep.

    And you, meanwhile, have exclusive club membership to the News Source of The Impartial Truth. And you know it to be impartial and truth because you agree with it.

    Obvious.

    Oh, we could play ad hominems all day about which news source is in the pay of who. Where do you get your news from?

    It's just known that the BBC is biased on this issue, after all it is funded partially by the EU.

    Given how heavily biased the rest of the media is against the EU, a little bias the other way wouldn't go unwelcome, really.

    I'm amused that no one *****es about the massive bias in favour leaving the EU demonstrated by the newspapers.

    This is a myth. The EU funds BBC's charitable arm, which has nothing to do with the organisation's main broadcast output, including BBC News.

    Exactly, this saves them money which they spend elsewhere. Therfore it is indirect funding.

    It doesn't save them money. It is the charitable arm.
