The BBC has received over 2000 complaints about a “bias against the Conservatives” in one of its programmes.
During the BBC News Special: Our New Prime Minister, 2211 people accused the broadcaster of being biassed in its coverage of the Tory party’s approach to public spending and taxation.
The number of complaints surpassed the previous year’s total, when 700 people accused the BBC of having a “pro-Tory bias” on Question Time.
The show, which aired on October 25, provided continuous news coverage and analysis as Rishi Sunak took over as UK Prime Minister.
It comes after a video by Guardian political commentator Owen Jones in which he urged people to issue complaints to the BBC.
Titled “don’t let the BBC get away with it” the video has more than 200,000 views and adds a link to the complaint page in the YouTube description.
