(not satire – it’s the BBC!)

(UPDATE: BBC had to eventually apologise for their ‘error’)

The BBC’s Andrew Neil is a Tory supporter and a climate change denier.

His first job was as a political adviser in Edward Heath’s Conservative Government.

And perhaps it’s because he’s so right-wing that he’s openly censoring the Green Party from his BBC reports.

Here’s Neil’s graphic from a couple of days ago showing the state of the major parties in the latest opinion polls:

BBC exclude greens

The only problem is that in that particular opinion poll, the Green Party were in 4th place on 8%.

Neil, however, decided to just exclude them from the graphic:

BBC apologises to Greens over dodgy poll reporting

Mind you, to be fair, Andrew Neil obviously isn’t all that good when it comes to statistics.

After all, he once thought people couldn’t get AIDS from heterosexual sex


Thanks also to the excellent Media Lens for pointing this out.
