SKY’s Stephen Dixon tweets on SKY bias re. Remain

SKYStephen
Stephen DIxon of SKY responded to my tweet that there has been nothing but Remain bias from all the TV channels and we we don’t have a free TV press.  The following exchange ensued.

Sour announces Brexit lead ONCE thru gritted teeth, if it were REMAIN wud B reporting it every 15mins!

what nonsense.

angela @angelneptustar Stephen, used to love SKY. Bias on SKY terrible, U repeat slurs re. Boris etc. every few minutes.

no, we repeat the news, as does every other news outlet. There is NO bias here.

. LUCRATIVE iPlayer deal has biased to Remain.

I FIND IT VERY VERY CONCERNING, we have NO free TV media. All biased to REMAIN becos of cash.

SKY gets financial benefit from EU. This should Be announced on the screen. Very wrong the way U have/

Please stop Angela. It’s absolute nonsense. We are an independent news source |regulated by OFCOM

What is your comment on the iPlayer deal?

no, we are not told what to say, by anyone.

I don’t know anything about iplayer

Does sky get any funding from the EU ??? Please reply

Stephen Dixon@skystephen  @186tony @angelneptustar @SkyNews @BorisJohnson I have no idea but even if it did, it wouldn’t influence sky news’ independence

Stephen, U R clearly a nice person. But U cannot say news announcers write news bulletins.

I don’t care what I look like, not important is it. TRUTH all tha matters. @skystephen @186tony @SkyNews @BorisJohnson

When they have discussions, Stephen prob. gives opinion. But NO announcer writes bulletins. @186tony @skystephen @SkyNews @BorisJohnson

All different now? Newscasters picked for looks or nice personality. @skystephen @186tony @SkyNews @BorisJohnson

Newscasters categorically do NOT write the bulletins, that is the truth, isn’t it. @skystephen @186tony @SkyNews @BorisJohnson

Anyone who works in a newsroom KNOWS producers write the bulletins, dont they. @skystephen @186tony @SkyNews @BorisJohnson

Entire theme of movie was straight reporting more & more corrupted by opinion of producers. @skystephen @186tony @SkyNews @BorisJohnson

Although Stephen denied SKY newscasters were told what to say, he did not deny that newscasters do not write bulletins, they read what producers write from the autocue.

I found his denial that he personally didn’t know about the iPlayer deal, or EU funding unconvincing.  Details of the lucrative deal, greatly to SKY/BBC’s advantage are here.

The Spectator has reported that the BBC secretly receives millions in funding from the EU.
