BBC Bias

For our USA audience, we invite you to see parallels with your own MSM... CNN, ABC etc...  Whatever happened to just reporting the news? Their partisanship is staggering.

BBC Fact Check

As the old saying goes, who will police the police? In this case, who will fact check the fact checkers? Witness this story emerging on Jan 4th 2021..

Re BBC's Georgia election: Donald Trump's phone call fact-checked:

Article copied below with Rebuttals. BBC text is greyed..

US President Donald Trump spent more than an hour on the phone to election officials in Georgia, as he continues to try to overturn the result in the state.

He made a number of accusations of fraud for which he did not provide evidence.

We've fact-checked some of his claims.

Yellings rebuttals are inset and italicized..

Claim 1: 'So dead people voted. And I think the number is close to 5,000 people [in Georgia].'

President Trump and his supporters have repeatedly claimed thousands of votes were cast in states across the country, using the identities of people who had died.

But Georgia's top election official, Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, denied the president's assertion, saying there were just two confirmed cases of dead people voting in the state.

  • Brad Raffensperger is a RINO. He doesn't like D T.
    It's hard to confirm evidence when truckloads of ballots are destroyed and the computer software that fictionalized the counts were and are still not under investigative control. The evidence of malpractice can be erased as quickly as it can be inserted.
  • In addition, this claim of only 2 was strongly refuted by OAN - here (OAN is an infinitely more reputable news source than the BBC despite those saying it's not .. we know this because they tell you what is actually happening instead of hiding it)
  • Case closed.

The president's lawyer Cleta Mitchell, also on the call, responded to this by suggesting they had details of dead people voting.

"There is a universe of people who have the same name and same birth year and died," she told Mr Raffensperger.

However, our previous investigation into a list of "10,000 dead voters" in Michigan found this approach seriously flawed.

Referring to other research on a different matter is also seriously flawed logic. It is certainly no better than the research behind DT's assertion which has involved several lawyers, mathematicians, statisticians.

Cross-referencing lists of deaths across the US and voters in a particular state produces thousands of matches - with the same name and birth year - both dead and alive.

Our study in Michigan produced a large number of matches even when the month of birth was included.

And we contacted a sample of these "dead voters" and found them very much alive.

And we have seen video of DT's investigators door knocking and find them very much non-existent.

Claim 2: '[There] were thousands and thousands of ballots in a box that was not an official or a sealed box.'

The president is referring to a video taken at a counting facility at the State Farm Arena, in Fulton County, Georgia, suggesting it reveals fraudulent activity by election workers.

The footage shows officials returning to their counting areas and a container with ballots being pulled out from under a table

"When they came back," Mr Trump said in his phone call, "they didn't go to their station.

"They went to the apron wrapped around the table, under which were thousands and thousands of ballots in a box that was not an official or a sealed box."

Election officials have previously responded to this accusation, saying the footage shows normal practice.

And you, BBC, believe that? IT IS ILLEGAL to have a table with an Apron around it, let alone a bunch of boxes under it. It is ALSO ILLEGAL to scan vote into machines without that process being monitored.

Gabriel Sterling, the voting system implementation manager in Georgia, tweeted state investigators who had watched the whole video had found nothing untoward.

BBC, if you walk up to a burglar and ask them if they burgled someone, what are they going to tell you?

An official investigation found "the entire security footage revealed there were no mystery ballots that were brought in from an unknown location and hidden under tables as has been reported by some".

No? Then what is on the video? Fairy dust?

Fulton County elections director Richard Barron said workers "put those ballot bins under their workspace because it's the most convenient place to put those things".

If I wanted to put something somewhere for convenience, it would not be under a shrouded table.

And state authorities said there was nothing unofficial about the boxes containing the ballots.

BBC, now you are just walking up to the getaway driver and hoping he will give you a different answer to the burglar you just asked. Here is the fact - no proper recount was done, and evidence has been seen to be destroyed. DT  has asked for the evidence they have remaining to be judged - it has been thrown out without even being looked at. 

Claim 3: 'They ran out because of a water-main break. And there was no water main, there was nothing. There was no break.'

Mr Trump is referring to a pause in the counting at the same location in Fulton County.

At the time, election officers issued a press statement saying a water leak had affected a room where absentee ballots were being tabulated.

An official investigation later clarified "what was initially reported as a water leak... was actually a urinal that had overflowed".

This information emerged several days later when it was conveniently no longer checkable and only after scrutiny showed neither evidence of damage, nor records of plumbers in attendance (to our knowledge) and, the urinal in question (used for the excuse) is said to be nowhere near the counting.

The report said this had not affected the counting of votes by Fulton County later that evening.

President Trump also said when election workers had returned "there were no Republican poll watchers - actually, there were no Democrat poll watchers".

This is true - but the official investigation found they had been neither asked to leave or prevented from returning.

You're joking now right? THE ENTIRE BUILDING WAS EVACUATED (or so we thought). There was NO GOOD REASON TO DO THAT so they fabricated 

Frances Watson, chief investigator for the Georgia secretary of state, said: "Nobody gave them any advice on what they should do.

"And it was still open for them or the public to come back in to view at whatever time they wanted to."

That's certainly not in line with the ample video evidence of aggressive man-handling and evicting of watchers.

Claim 4: 'You had out-of-state voters - they voted in Georgia but they were from out of state - of 4,925.'

Ryan Germany, a lawyer representing Georgia's secretary of state's office during the call, has rejected this claim.

Well well well... Let's either shadow ban or mock and discredit all Trump's legal team and believe someone no one has ever heard of.

"Every one we've been through are people that lived in Georgia, moved to a different state but then moved back to Georgia legitimately," he said.

The numbers given by Mr Trump's team regarding these supposed out-of-state voters were "not accurate", Mr Germany added.

That may be so, but all manner of stuff was going on, and you listen to this guy while senior attorney Rudy Giuliani is denied standing? This should be contested in court, not by a bunch of BBC hacks.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday's Senate run-off election in Georgia, Mr Raffensperger said "qualified Georgians and only Georgians are allowed to vote in our elections" and out-of-state voters would not be tolerated.

And he warned anyone attempting to game the system: "We will find you and we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law."

Pull the other one. The entire establishment is in on it. There have been cases of perpetrators being caught (all democrats for some reason), but not many!
In short, we at Yellings find the BBC is simply part of the problem. Their fact checking is partisan if not amateurish.

Just the fact that Trump got more votes that EVER BEFORE and yet was somehow beaten by Biden (who hardly campaigned) should be the trumpet sound preceding the greatest story of our time.

This story of voter fraud has to be the biggest, juiciest story ever, but no, all the BBC do is the same as CNN etc .. either ignore it, stonewall it (like the Hunter Biden scandal) or investigate Trump and play the part of an attorney for his detractors and the enemies of the 70+ million American Voters.

It is left to small independent hacks such as ourselves to protect freedom of speech and find the truth.
