BBC Study Claims That BBC News May Not Be Trustworthy
After a public outcry to investigate the reporting of BBC News, a study from the BBC has found that 65% of their reports “might not be trustworthy”.
Analysis from within the organisation found that, although most local news was fairly accurate, the BBC coverage of political and global news did not represent the full truth nor the views of the BBC. This has led to mass confusion for statisticians, such as University of York researcher Dr. Wan Tu-Thwee.
“If the BBC claims that the BBC may be untrustworthy, how can we trust the BBC that the BBC is untrustworthy?” Dr. Tu-Thwee put to the press. “Does that mean we can trust the BBC? But then how can we trust the survey?”
The study from the BBC into the BBC’s trustworthiness was released on 27th November, which as everyone knows is Opposite Day. When we reported this to Dr. Tu-Thwee, he started to babble a lot of words very quickly, such as “trust”, “BBC”, “but if”, and “so that means”, before his head imploded into a miniature black hole of his own logic’s making.
Meanwhile, ‘journalists’ from The Daily Star are running their own independent ‘study’ into the trustworthiness of the BBC. When Daily Star ‘journalists’ were pushed for comment by Flipside, they merely issued the statement, “Hey! Stop saying the word ‘journalist’ whilst making your fingers look like inverted commas! We are real reporters too!”
