The "Objective" Eye Of The BBC

"Because of course the BBC can’t tell the difference between an outlandish, obviously fake social-justice obsessed parody account and a normal member of the public."
That's hilarious! For a long time I've been wanting to say that it's very rare I actually "laugh-out-loud", so to speak, when reading things on the internet, but this is one of those times. One of the things I encounter every now and again here in Taiwan is the Canadian or American who regards the BBC as "fairly objective" insofar as political bias is concerned. They fill the world with facepalm.
