Diversity Org Admits Gays, Minorities Hugely Overrepresented in UK Television

Feb 27, 2020 by

by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart: A major survey of the British television industry has found that, contrary to popular belief among “woke” commentators, gay people and ethnic minorities are massively overrepresented. The Creative Diversity Network (CDN) published its Diamond: The Third Cut report after surveying “over 30,000 diversity forms relating to over 600,000 TV production contributions”. The CDN found that “BAME [Black and Minority Ethnic] on-screen representation” is a remarkable 23 per...

Advice for the BBC’s next director-general

Feb 11, 2020 by

by Giles Fraser, UnHerd: BBC TV is rubbish, says my Moral Maze colleague Tim Stanley in the Telegraph today. In contrast listening figures out last week showed that BBC radio output continues to thrive, with Radio 4 and 5 live growing audiences.  So why not dump BBC TV and the website, I muse to myself? Radio is so obviously the best bit of BBC output, and could easily shoulder the Reithian mission at a fraction of the cost. […]   After all, the BBC and the Church of England have a great...

Hollywood and LGBT character quotas

Feb 7, 2020 by

By John Stonestreet and G. Shane Morris, Christian Post: Just about every major movie release these days is scrutinized about whether or not it will feature an obvious LGBT character. Ever since the live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” and a bit before, Disney has been sprinkling LGBT characters generously across its film properties.

Long Bailey, abortion and the hopelessly out-of-touch Telegraph

Jan 20, 2020 by

by Kathy Gyngell, TCW: THERE’S nothing that wasn’t entirely predictable about the outrage train that followed Rebecca Long Bailey’s timidly expressed responses to the question of abortion on the grounds of disability once they’d been dug up and aired (and from which as a result she appears to have rowed back). That’s except for the Daily Telegraph’s headline ‘Rebecca Long-Bailey’s toxic views on abortion matter for all women’.  Yes, you expect fanatical feminists like Sophie Walker of the...

Teenage Nick makes the fake news machine eat its words

Jan 9, 2020 by

by Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman: YOU remember Nick Sandmann of Covington High School in the United States, right? He was the one who was wrongly accused by the hate-stream media of being very nasty indeed to a Native American. When it became clear that this was a monstrous lie, he was then accused of committing a Facecrime, namely, smiling while white.  Nick Sandmann was threatened, his family was threatened and the school had to close down for a few days owing to death threats. This...
