Mark Dolan claims woke BBC punished presenter for speaking a ‘biological FACT’

Our post truth national broadcaster upheld a complaint against the today presenter after he said “trans women, in other words males” on the BBC Radio 4 programme last August.

A listener complained that the comment amounted to Mr Webb giving his personal view on a controversial matter, in breach of the BBC’s requirements on impartiality. The BBC’s editorial complaints unit – a sinister body that would have the Chinese Communist Party blushing – agreed, of course it did – saying that Webb gave the impression of endorsing one viewpoint in a highly controversial area.

I don’t think it’s controversial, if you did GCSE biology. Justin Webb has called someone with a penis male and now he’s in trouble with bosses. Is it any wonder why people are turning away from the BBC?

If a news broadcaster, whose job it is to impart the events of the day, and gather facts, cannot say things which are scientifically and biologically the case, we are in trouble.
