    Love how this video auto-plays immediately after the video of Richard Herring appearing on this show in 2017. Literally "If you like this… see this".

    All this talk of algorithms leading us into echo chambers.
    I’ve been using YouTube for a decade, I am unashamedly left wing.
    So, if the YT algorithms work what the fuck do they keep recommending right wing content to me, eg, Fox News, FFS.
    Libertarian content, and other right wing politics fed to me on a daily basis.
    I have to struggle to weed out the right wing imposters on a daily basis.
    YouTube/Google feed me unwanted right wing material all the time.

    Wealthy gravy train mongrels love to have their humour bones rattled by extremely talented, funny performers,, especially in close proximity, like a television studio interview. The vacumn Stewart Lee creates around such aforementioned types is tangeble, The fat cat celeb" wannabe s, to the left side, as we youtubers view the screen, might have comprehended some of Mr Lee's words,, the guy in the middle mopped his brow, and was glad the session ended quick.

    The BBC is the British equivalent of Russian Today. It's state-run propaganda… that people are forced to pay a tax for if they own a television…. There's so much biased bullshit on the BBC that is boggles the mind that they get away with it. The corporate media not having a strangle hold on information is a good thing, and you're crazy to think that it isn't. They could just tell you whatever they want and claim it to be true, and you'd have no way of knowing whether or not it actually was true. Corporate owned and controlled media is one of the things that allows government corruption to thrive… It's an antithesis of democracy.

    Discussing the dreadful problem of "fake news" while on the BBC with inveterate liars Liz Kendall and Michael Portillo, hosted by the Tory's favourite spin doctor, Andrew Neil.
