UKIP blasts BBC bias for airing EU-funded Obama documentary weeks before pro-EU intervention

Obama is so fond of the EU’s political union I wonder what the chances are of him agreeing to let a Supreme Court in Mexico have final say over US laws, and the American people agreeing to a free movement deal with Mexico, and them having a common army with Colombia. That is what an EU equivalent in the Americas would be.” - UKIP MEP Louise Bours

Press Release

“The BBC has shown outlandish pro-EU bias by accepting to air a sycophantic documentary of President Obama grant-aided €300,000 by the European Commission, weeks before he visits London to spread a Remain message,” says UKIP MEP Louise Bours. The last part of the four piece documentary is broadcast Tuesday 5th April.

“By choosing to air such a ridiculously sycophantic and EU-funded documentary on President Obama, the BBC has shown its clear bias again on EU matters.”

MEP Bours, a member of the Culture Committee in the European Parliament said from Brussels today:

“Coming hot on the heels of EU funded BBC mockumentary ‘Great European Disaster Movie’, it is clear the BBC has no shame, but at least this time, they displayed the EU logo in the credits.

Speaking personally I find that many fine BBC journalists work in an honest and balanced fashion.  I regret to note that the BBC Bureau in Brussels however rarely asks UKIP MEPs for comment while Pro-EU pundits get frequently interviewed.


“And Obama is so fond of the EU’s political union I wonder what the chances are of him agreeing to let a Supreme Court in Mexico have final say over US laws, and the American people agreeing to a free movement deal with Mexico, and them having a common army with Colombia. That is what an EU equivalent in the Americas would be.”
