The free speech research group, The Campaign for Common Sense, has found that the BBC could be portraying a version of the UK that most viewers do not recognise. The report commissioned by the research group looked into the content of the broadcaster’s TV dramas and the disparities between the topics and the beliefs of viewers.
A CCS spokesman said: “Too often in BBC dramas you can see only one side of an argument.”
The spokesman accused the BBC of risking “warping” Britain. 
“And it’s usually the side of a liberal, Left-wing, woke viewpoint that has more in common with the echo chambers of Twitter than the majority of licence fee payers,” he told the Daily Mail.
“The BBC needs to understand that not everyone signs up to a world view where the bad guys are the police, Brexit and Conservatives.”

“We work with the best best creative talent who represent all corners of the UK and reflect different views and perspectives, while also providing brilliant entertainment and escapism.”

The update from the broadcaster revealed paper reviews will feature throughout BBC programmes rather than as a separate segment. 
Reviews will be present in BBC Breakfast, The Today Programme, Politics Live, Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg and BBC News Online. 
Fans of the segment were not pleased with the news as Yue Parkinson agreed: “What a shame. I have been watching it almost everyday.”
John Bell echoed: “I really enjoyed The Papers and will miss the various contributors take on the next days headlines.” (sic)
“One of the few things I regularly watch. Such a shame,” Celia Martha added.
Liam Fitz tweeted: “Not good news at all. We’ll now only have the ‘Paper Review’ on @SkyNews – and that’s all mismatched anyway! These changes are not for the better and needs a serious rethink from top @BBC / @BBCNews bosses! #BBC #BBCNews #BBCPapers.”
