Old news but not totally irrelevant to this contretemps.

they're screaming idiots and cynics who live by provocation and misinformation.

I am quite disinterested in listening to professional provocateurs shrieking that they are being oppressed whenever somebody else decides their falsehoods are not worthy of publication, an extremely tiresome grift well described in the cartoon below.
Do you regard Malcolm Pein as such a person?

I'm pretty sure that not every person selected for interview is politically extreme. But the underlying bias of the station is reflected in the backgrounds and philosophies of the majority of its presenters, many of whom wouldn't feature on my list of desired company. They probably feel much the same way about the BBC, but simply exchanging one bias for another doesn't lead to healthy debate, especially if one's financial backers see commercial value in the dark arts.
