Viewers of BBC QT criticize the show for being “clearly biased” and having a “stacked audience.”
The BBC’s QUESTION TIME returned to screens on Thursday evening, with host Fiona Bruce taking the show to Cardiff; however, many fans were dissatisfied with the current episode, stating it was “clearly prejudiced.”
Last night, at 10:45 p.m., the BBC’s monthly political show aired, and while many viewers tuned in, many took to social media to express their anger with the “stacked crowd.” Ex-Justice Secretary Robert Buckland, 53, Labour Senedd Member Eluned Morgan, 54, Plaid Cymru MP Liz Saville Roberts, 56, former Boris Johnson political strategist Guto Harri, 55, and writer and broadcaster Timandra Harkness were among the panelists who took questions from the audience yesterday.
Thomas Evans yelled at the selected audience members on Twitter.
“Just watched (hashtag)BBCQT (heaven help me) for the first time in an age,” he wrote to his 18 thousand followers.
“The BBC purposefully stacked the audience.
“It’s a lot worse now than it was before.”
“It’s past time for the BBC to be probed for their programming’s fairness and balance.
“There’s no way this charade can go on much longer!”
“Why does anyone watch the blatantly biased (hashtag)bbcqt?” @C75Live simply asked.
What’s the point, after all?
“Just turn it off,” says the narrator.
Another Twitter user, @SiobhanFeely, slammed host Fiona Bruce, 57, for rebuffing a question from an audience member who questioned if “some Tory backbench MPs’ solution to asylum seekers was to tear up the Human Rights Act,” as seen in a clip.
“Absolutely terrible,” commented @SiobhanFeely.
“A really significant matter is being discussed, and Robert Buckland has posed a great difficult question.
“I saw his segment on TV earlier and was irritated that his question was not answered!”
I’m not a fan of Facebook hosting the (hashtag)bbcqt.”
