Galloway mentioned Rupert Murdoch, I guess he is the owner of Sky news, I know he owns Fox, so..... I am not surprised one bit. At least Sky unlike Fox let somebody like him on their airwaves.

Not exactly. Sky News is owned by BSkyB, which is 35% or so owned by News Corp. Which means Murdoch is the biggest shareholder and has a controlling interest in Sky, but is not an outright subsidiary.

Secondly, broadcasting regulations in the UK for news channels are incredibly strict (Fox News has itself fallen foul of these regulations, which they objected to and were basically told if they wanted to broadcast in the UK, tough), and they must be impartial. How close they get to this is of course open to debate (and indeed regulatory scrutiny), but Sky is anything but a British clone of Fox.

Thirdly, where Galloway is concerned, anything but unquestioning outright support for his own views is going to be considered by him to be outrageous bias.

He's entertaining enough, that's for sure, which is why a heavyweight clash between him and someone like Jeremy Paxman is always riveting viewing, but don't mistake his pontificating and agitation for a measured critique of the media.

Gotta love that interview. He ripped her a new one... and he had very many good points. I saw it earlier this morning and really was surprised at how he really went at it. I've never seen him before, but apparently he has a reputation for a strong opinion on the matters. He is angry, and rightfully so...its hard not to ramble when you're mad. But the system is so frustrating, to see the kind of spin all news put on these stories. I cant blame him for being sick of it.

Just for the theatre I will be eternally grateful Bravo45! It might be interesting to collect a best of interviews for George G, I guess the US interrogations on oil for food would figure there.

What Banco says about BSkyB is technically correct, and there may be some independence from Fox, but look again at who the CEO is, none other than James Murdoch. The Dirty Digger does not let the scions off the leach much. Remember that Lachlan left executive posts (although he remains on the main News board), presumably not because the lunches were of poor quality!

Whatever else, I go back to the theatre of it. There should be more Galloways around to put interviewers in their place(s).

Yes, and I remember when he was appointed. There was considerable unease about the appointment, and Murdoch had to go around the shareholders and convince them that it was a reasonable appointment. It wasn't a fait accompli. As I said, a controlling interest, not a subsidiary.

Of course that's true, but amongst Newscorp's news outlets, there does seem to be a general 'Newscorp-view' that prevails throughout. That might be because it's aquired papers, TV channels and magazines that follow the general political view of those already owned by Newscorp. But it might be signs of some degree of editorial control being carried about above each individual element.

No, they just can't do that. It's against all the regulations and would get leapt on. What you get is the Newscorp printed media doing a lot of pro-Sky stuff because they don't have the same restrictions on them, but if you watch Sky television the same is not true in reverse. It couldn't be, they'd get slaughtered for it.

Think about the heavy discussion and criticism the BBC get for their coverage, and that's an organisation that works ridiculously hard to try to be as impartial as possible. Now imagine what would happen if there was blatant bias in Sky's coverage.

Sky News is a pretty tabloidy approach in the way that they cover the news, but it is still pretty politically neutral, simply because they don't have a choice in the matter. No doubt Murdoch would love them to be able to back a cause, but they can't.

I'm not talking about Sky taking a pro-Newscorp view, but rather taking a very similar general political view to the other Newscorp organisations.

I support the BBC more than most, but even I have to admit that a lot of the checks and balances at the BBC came in only after the Hutton report.

I'm not talking about blatent bias, but implied or percieved bias. The BBC tend to go to their Lebanese correspondents first. You could say this is because Lebanon is the country that's being attacked, but you could also claim that it shows BBC bias towards the Lebanese side.

Sky interviewed Galloway, who is an extreme-left caricature. You could say by interviewing such an extremist, they're ridiculing the left, in the same way that Bill O'Reilly tends to interview those on the fringe of the left wing. But you could also say that by interviewing Galloway, they're giving the left a voice.

From the Ofcom code:

Section 3.1 IMPARTIALITY

“It is for each licensee, acting through the executives who commission and schedule programmes, to ensure the service they provide deals fairly with matter of political or industrial controversy, or current public policy”.

3.4 NEWS

“In addition to the general requirement relating to matters of political or industrial controversy or current public policy, the [Broadcasting] Act require that any news, given in whatever form, must be presented with due accuracy and impartiality.

“Reporting should be dispassionate and news judgement based on the need to give viewers and even-handed account of events. In reporting of matters of industrial or political controversy, the main differing views on the matter should be given their due weight in the period during which the controversy is active. Editorial discretion will determine whether a range of conflicting views is included within a single news item of whether it is acceptable to spread them over a series of bulletins.”


Giving political matters 'their due weight' is about as ambiguous as you can get. An 'even-handed account of events' means one view can be presented first, giving a percieved bias. It's explicitely acceptable to air only one side of an argument in one bulletin. While the spirit of the Ofcom regulations is that there should be no bias, it allows broadcasters quite a lot of leeway in their reporting of the news.

A difference in the reporting style of Sky could be because they want to provide a counterfoil to the BBC. But it could also be a sign of editorial control from Newscorp itself.

If you were to give Sky a place on the political spectrum, you'd certainly say it was more right than left. Is it a coincidence that all of Newscorp's other companies tend to be more right wing, too?

Quoting Banco (Reply 20):

Sad, maybe, but I wrote to Ofcom a few years ago complaining about a piece I saw on Fox that displayed clear bias (it was about boycotting French products). Their reply said that whilst their code outlawed bias in factual reporting, it didn't outlaw bias in editorials. Furthermore, 'editorials' didn't have to be explicitely stated as being so. They felt that a show with a distinct and constant anchor, could include elements of editorial along with the reporting of facts.

The point about covering matters like this is that there is always going to be bias, because it's human beings reporting on things. Equally, the point about the BBC is that they have always tried to monitor it, and post-Hutton report have gone even further in so doing. They aren't perfect of course, far from it, but they go further than any other news organisation in making the attempt.

If you outlaw this kind of thing, then the likes of Panorama can't be shown either, and I'm sure you'd agree that that would be a loss. It's a balancing act, and one that generally speaking I think they perform well.

I'm sure you're infinitely happier with our various news organisations than if we had to put up with what passes for news in the US.
