Jeremy Vine's Bias Wall
A Willmore made this Freedom of Information request to British Broadcasting Corporation
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
In a recent interview for The Drum (https://www.thedrum.com/news/2022/03/04/...) Jeremy Vine tells us about the "bias wall" on his computer where he charts audience complaints, according to where they place him on the political spectrum. These audience complaints will, presumably, include the many received by the BBC.
He said, “It’s amazingly 50-50. It’s actually a beautiful thing and I’d like to create some wallpaper out of it because some of them are fantastic,” he says, recalling that he was accused of being “up Boris’s arse” and a “Corbyn lover” in two separate complaints made in “the same minute”.
Please provide me with an image of or, preferably, the actual data file that contains Vine's "bias wall". Please also provide ownership details for "his computer".
Mr A Willmore
