According to the opposition Labour covering the BBC on the british election campaign in a way that favours The Conservatives.

Britain's Labour party, has on Thursday accused the british media, the BBC of bias.

It appears by a letter from the party to the director-general of the BBC.

According to the opposition party has the media been biased in the coverage of the electoral campaign for the elections in the Uk next week.

Andrew Gwynne, who is one of the party's valgkampskoordinatorer, says that the Labour party has found numerous examples of media bias.

Among other things, the party's leaders have been faced with "more negative treatment, harder reviews shall and more colored lederkommentarer" than prime minister Boris Johnson and his conservative party colleagues.

- equally, the partiality reflected in vinklingen, the content and balance of the BBC's coverage of the election campaign, says Gwynne.

- If The Conservatives are allowed to cut corners with, or manipulate, the BBC, and the behavior occurs unimpeded, will the media effectively be complicit in giving The Conservatives an unfair advantage in the election campaign.

the BBC is funded by a tax, which is imposed on all uk households with a tv.

the Medium is therefore subject to strict rules to ensure journalistic impartiality.

the BBC has not responded directly to criticism. But a spokesman for the media is saying:

the BBC will continue to make its own investigative journalistic decisions and is dedicated to cover the election campaign fair, impartial and without fear or forfordelinger.

the Labour party is particularly unhappy that Boris Johnson has not said yes to allow themselves to be interview by the BBC's veteran journalist Andrew Neil.

He has already exposed the other party leaders for a long number of challenging issues.

Labour informs that the party had said yes to the interview under the understanding that the prime minister would also participate.

- instead it has the BBC allowed the conservative leader to choose which platforms, which may put him in the best possible light, " says Gwynne.

Thursday evening Andrew Neil, after an interview with the head of the Brexitpartiet, Nigel Farage, on direct tv challenged Boris Johnson to be interviewed.

- We have for weeks asked him to come up with a date, a time and a place. Until now there is not got answer, said the BBC reporter.

The Conservatives have not commented on the invitation from the BBC or the accusations from the Labour party.
