Missed this, but when is someone also going to inform LBC about this one? A few of their presenters are constantly doing it and it is really disrespectful.

(Yes, it is that Simply Red)
You see the ridiculous lengths the British Establishment will go to protect their mistakes, even so far as broadcasting this show in the name of 'Balance'
This is the same infamous balance that has the BBC both siding Russian Propaganda and America Nazis.

 I don't know how special it is to ignore Remain voters, people who 
 didn't vote, or young people and EU citizens who couldn't vote. Pretty

โ€œThe fact that the BBC felt the need to take an โ€˜impartialโ€™ stance between a man who broke his wifeโ€™s nose and the woman whose nose was broken, tells you everything you need to know about how warped and ludicrous this notion is.โ€

Rubbish! #FionaBruce did NOT provide a "legal" clarification of comments made re #StanleyJohnson. She just said that his friends called it a "one off". It wasn't. And she should not have quoted the wife-beater's friends! #DomesticViolence #BBCQT

All the lovely Fiona did was simply point out that soon-to-be-knighted Stanley Johnson only broke his wife's nose and hospitalised her once. I simply don't see what the fuss is about. I suppose Gary Lineker or Gary Neville or some ex-footballing Gary will be hosting Question Time next.

If you're "legally obliged" to make a flippant, dangerous statement as #FionaBruce did last week, perhaps it's time to have a word with your employer... Or resign.

#BBCQT presenter #fionaBruce will step back from her role as an ambassador for the charity Refuge, following a comment she made on air about Stanley Johnson, accused of trivialising domestic violence during last week's show after stepping in when Johnson was described as a "wife-beater"

"Just so everyone knows, Stanley Johnson's wife ...said he had broken her nose & she'd ended up in hospital as a result.

Friends of Stanley Johnson have said - it was a one-off"

Not suspended by BBC, mind!

Now that #FionaBruce has stepped down from honorary role at #DomesticViolence charity over remarks she made re #StanleyJohnson on #BBCQT, surely it's time for her to quit the show, too?!

@Taliesen

I do find it funny that #tories always think they themselves are politically "neutral" - when the rest of us can spot them a mile away.

#fionaBruce is hopeless as a political panel show chair - she needs replacing

#fionaBruce may be able to engender a persistent bias to the right on #bbcQt (aka the #fionaBruceShow ) without comment - but were she to make repeated social media posts on how to dive in the penalty box whilst playing #football and get away with it I doubt either #bbc bosses or the licence payers would care much ......

 BBC STATEMENT ON LAST NIGHT'S QUESTION TIME 
 Following comments about an exchange referencing domestic abuse 
 on Question Time, the BBC says: 
 "Domestic abuse is abhorrent, and we would never wish to suggest 
 otherwise. When serious allegations are made on air against people or 
 organisations. it is the job of BBC presenters to ensure that the 
 context of those allegations - and any right of reply from the person 
 or organisation โ€” is given to the audience, and this is what Fiona Bruce 
 was doing last night. She was not expressing any personal opinion 
 about the situation."

"#FionaBruce is deeply sorry about what she said......." said a Woman's Refuge charity who values celebrity above decency....
https://refuge.org.uk/news/refuge-responds-to-bbc-question-time-comments/

Such a very disappointing reaction from #RefugeCharity regarding #FionaBruce minimising the #DomesticViolence carried out by #StanleyJohnson putting his wife in hospital. We all know that "one off" doesn't exist when it comes to spousal assault.
#BBC apology for "limited sports" is nothing as more and more are supporting #GaryLinekker and his comparison of #ToryCriminals as #ToryFascists

#FionaBruce minimising #DomesticAbuse on #BBCQT & giving only the 'context' that #StanleyJohnson said breaking his wife's nose was a one off incident....

No mention that his wife Charlotte said he beat her many times over many years - effectively silencing a victim of domestic violence.

Why has #Refuge not sacked Bruce?

Obviously the #BBC won't - despite censoring #GaryLineker for telling the truth about the #ToryFascistDictatorship using 1930's #Germany's political tactics & rhetoric.

#GTTO

I will not be the only person pausing to compare the treatment of so-called bias (lack of impartiality) by #GaryLineker and the lack of impartiality expressed & practiced by #FionaBruce each week on #QuestionTime... seems you can be impartial as long as you tack to the right...

Have to laugh at those who think the BBC was once impartial. It has never in all its days been impartial. Indeed, it is the finest and by far the most potent propaganda machine ever created. Just as Reith promised it would be. And as indisputedly proven by those still thinking it used to be impartial. Go figure!

#Lineker #Attenborough Appropriately, given what #FionaBruce said, the #BBC is behaving like an abuse victim: trying to appease the Tories so they donโ€™t defund it. Itโ€™s going to backfire though because censoring popular culture figures is exactly the excuse the Tories need to attack the BBC. The more unpopular it gets, the easier it is for them.
