BBC Bias: It is how you present the story

One of the most obvious ways that the BBC shows its pro-Tory bias is the way that it presents stories and so, effectively, defines what the story is.

There are many example is this, here's one from today.

The real story here is that Tory Minister Lord Freud suggested people with disabilities could be paid less than the minimum wage as they were "not worth the full wage".

That is a damning insight to the private thinking of a prominent Conservative.

But, by presenting the story as his apology the BBC manages to make the villain of the peace something of a hero and hides the crime for which he has had to apologise for.
