Algorithms direct Google users to a little-known website called BBC Learning English for major news brands like the Daily Mail.

Founded in 1943, it is a division of the World Service and provides free online resources and activities for educators and students.

Other pieces on the BBC Learning English site seem politically charged. One wonders if women are better leaders than men because they are “more caring.”

It says, ‘What’s it like to be a female leader in a man’s world? What are the risks women take when they occupy leadership positions? And what do women do differently as leaders?

“In the first part of our leadership series, we’ll discuss the ‘Finnish Five’ – the coalition of women leaders who rule Finland – and learn how they put care at the heart of the decisions they make and the goals they set.”

There is no mention of Margaret Thatcher or Theresa May.

Another praises environmentalist Greta Thunberg. It says, “Passion for a cause and persistence can help turn a lonely voice into a loud international chorus.”
