It's ironic that while most of those who work within the BBC are left-leaning, their need for sensationalism and their lazy journalism have combined to ensure the victory of causes they most despise: Brexit and a Tory majority. Had the BBC not simply repeated ad nauseam the endless lies told by the Brexit people, it's unlikely so many ignorant Brits would have been so easily duped. Had the BBC not given endless coverage to the antics of Boris the Clown it's unlikely he'd have ended up as Prime Minister. Just goes to show that systemic factors can defeat internal preferences and that even those involved won't grasp what's happening nor comprehend it post hoc.
