Can you have your say on the BBC website?

Yeah right, if only!  I would like to gripe about the media, and in particular the BBC.  They are supposed to be unbiased but the moderators on the "Have your say" forums seem to reject the many valid and non-offensive comments I post - presumably because the truth really hurts!

My guess is that these are part and parcel of the problems with the media in general.  The news that gets out is only what they want the public to hear, and they basically conceal everything else!  I have made some constructive comments which were true and probably quite valid (in my opinion), but because they were a bit too much for the BBC dimwits to accept - they simply rejected them.

Have Your Say is full of this kind of thing.  Someone can make a comment which has no substance to it and it gets published, but a more constructive one is rejected as if it is offensive. Why??  Some user-names reflect the rejection of their comments by the BBC on a regular basis, which basically means they are fed up of NOT having their say published.

Have Your Say If people in control are not prepared to accept fair comment and reflect a true view from society, then more people need to stand up and get this suppression exposed.  Moderation is one thing, but censorship (cherry picking?) is quite another thing.  Obviously the BBC wouldn't want to highlight it's own failings and maybe the media in general wouldn't be too happy, but with sites like The Weekly Gripe and others, perhaps with the Internet we can break this glass ceiling of truth exposure enforced upon us by the media.

Why do these cowards hiding behind cyberspace not face up to the truth and actually allow people to "have their say".  I know how the Chinese feel now!

Spot on. I have been blocked for no reason and not even had a comment rejected. I am a university educated man who does not make facile,racist,ill informed or libelous comments which the BBC censors usually allow with impunity. BBC are a politically controlled government agency no better than Mr Putin's propaganda press

Why does every programme need background music? Be it nature or any documentary we get music....it's annoying and a distraction. I refuse to watch and switch off.

Both recent budgets disadvantaged us pensioners who have paid taxes for years only for our threasholds to be frozen ( pay more TAX) despite inflation ; and the pensioneers forgotten in recent amendments.

We are the forgotten or taken for granted generation.

Absolutely the bbc is bias and run by this government which is of dubious nature.
There are certain countries which control the media and the uk is possibly one.
If the cap fits and the truth hurts so be it.

Of course the downside of commenting on the site is that if your comment passes the moderators and gets published you may then receive a lot of 'dislikes' and indeed responses bordering on abuse and which strangely actually get past the moderators.

How will 'leave' ever make amends to the people of Britain ?
Let's just hope they haven't the gall to use the NHS they are happy to wreck, along with everything else.
When our NHS goes the real pain begins.

Anyone supporting the tory kleptocracy need education.
The organisation needs investigation and prosecution.

True. The bbc has been rightwing from inception, characterised by what they Don't report.

Fiona Bruce a true conservative just like her husband .You need a new unbiased presenter on question time get rid of Fiona Bruce she is conservative through and through she doesn't deserve her salary, the licence payers shouldn't have to pay her salary.
