Well oh well ! The BBC has come out in response to criticism from DJI, with regard to the recent BBC2 Documentary which steamrollered the British public into believing that drones would cause the next UK air disaster. Their comical response was to say their programme delivered, quote ” a justified, fair, and impartial” view !! Hmm, now perhaps the documentary makers at the BBC have not read the Oxford English Dictionary definition of “impartial”. I shall therefore enlighten them. The Oxford English dictionary definition of “impartial” is “treating all rivals or disputants equally”…….hmmmm…..now if you watched the said documentary you would be asking yourself how by anyone’s definition can that programme be labelled “impartial”.

What a sad episode for the BBC, sad to see how far their standards have fallen, sad to see their treatment of all parties in such a documentary has become subject to such open bias.  We have to ask ourselves why, and yet sadly we all know the answer to that.

Well, if it wasn’t enough that we in the UK find ourselves at the end of a indiscriminate attack by Mr Andrew Sage of NATS for being careless, clueless criminals, the good old Beeb decides to stick the boot in as well with what we can only describe as one of the most biased, one sided displays of careless and innacurate pieces of journalism you could wish to see in their BBC2 documentary claiming that drones will be the next UK air disaster. What a shame they could not be bothered to actually use some of the “factual” information in their programme instead of just resorting to shameless sensationalism based on totally misinformed facts. Can we just say a huge well done to DJI for sending the BBC a very lengthy and factual response to the BBC. You can read that by clicking on this link :
