Can someone tell Rob Watson that we want the news, not his opinion?

I listen to the BBC news on a daily basis and appreciate that, by in large, it presents the news in a professional, unbiased manner. The one anomaly to this journalism that I have come to trust, is the American style opining that Rob Watson consistently trots out when ‘reporting’ on UK politics.
I have yet to hear him objectively report on the news, and find it surprising that BBC high standards would allow for his ridiculously biased pontificating. I happen to agree with many of his thinly veiled opinions however, I don’t listen to the BBC for op-eds, I listen to it for unbiased reporting of the world’s current events.

Biased coverage

BBC has become very left leaning extremely biased pro Islamist anti Israeli anti Indian news channel. I listen to them and believe exactly opposite what they are saying. Only good thing about them is they speak good English.

BBC goes FOX/CNN

Never expected BBC to follow FOX News and CNN into becoming sesationalizing media household, what Rajini Vaidyanathan and BBC did with Dalai Lama was not only shameful it was outright disgusting to the point of bad faith. If BBC was really intrested about the Dalai Lama's stand on euality then they they could have asked about thousands of talks he gave about importance of female leadership in world politics or his role in tibetan nuns education. No but BBC is desperate and wants to sell more Ads, so what they do they dig up an old self-deprecating joke about himself(common among tibetans) vs his next female self. The very fact that he wants there to be female Dalai Lama is a very huge thing breaking the cycle to 14 male dalai lamas but no BBC wants to sensationalize. BBC thought it was more important to overlook life long work towards women's education and giving women more opportunity.
