Alex Forsyth Boris Johnson
In 2019, the BBC came under fire after a TV reporter appeared to refer to Boris Johnson winning the majority ‘he so deserves’. Viewers hit out after Alex made the reference during a live link from South Wales during coverage of the general election.
In the clip, which was shared on Twitter, she said: “For the Conservative Party I think the nervousness comes from the fact that their strategy has centered on putting Brexit right at the front of their campaign.
“They have done a relentless focus on Boris Johnson’s promise to take the UK out of the European Union if he wins the majority that he so deserves.”
The clip sparked anger from Twitter users, who accused the BBC of bias.
One wrote: “These ‘mistakes’ are embedded in the culture of the people they employ. It’s that simple – and you are forced to pay for it.”
Another said: “I’ve just reported it to the BBC. Absolutely shocking.”
Ofcom confirmed that it received six complaints regarding the incident, while a spokesperson from the BBC told Yahoo News UK that the gaffe was ‘a slip of the tongue.
