“I’m not sure what the fuss is all about,” an anonymous source told us. “I mean, what else would it be? The whole news apparatus is geared towards slagging him off no matter what he does. Why would we do that if it wasn’t the whole point of the organisation? What? British Broadcasting Corporation? Are you having a laugh?”
The poll also revealed that 24% think BBC stands for Blame Bastard Corbyn, 14% think it stands for Big Boss Conservatives, 13% don’t know, and 2% thought it was just a weird word.
The poll results have been featured in all major news outlets (except the Sun, who are worried that one of the Bs in BBC might stand for Borough). However, it only appeared briefly on the BBC news channel, alongside a picture of Jeremy Corbyn which the newsreader looked at disapprovingly while shaking their head.
The poll is thought to be the first of many currently being conducted to find out about BBC bias and behaviour. Other questions thought to be doing the rounds are:
- Q: The BAFTAs are basically just the BBC awards aren’t they?
- Q: How many references to Newsround are in a typical episode of Doctor Who?
- Q: Why the fuck didn’t you fire Jimmy Saville you bunch of cockwipes?
