Par for the course, but also worth letting off steam at Biased BBC
You're kidding right? The idea that the BBC is somehow a great left-wing conspiracy is one of the more delusional ideas doing the rounds amongst the foaming at the mouth right-wing blogosphere right now. Even the most cursory examination of the facts demonstrates that it is nonsense.[/quote]
If it was only the right saying this, fair enough - it would be easy to dismiss in the way that you describe.
Andrew Marr is quoted as saying the BBC is not politically biased, but culturally biased, inevitably, due to the demographic of its employees.
Rod Liddle, Labour Party member and former LP speech writer, claims a BBC Pro-Euro and Pro-Israeli bias.
Generally I think the BBC does try to be impartial, but like any organisation, you can only do things through people, and people are shaped by the institutions they work in; inevitably you are likely to get an institutional perspective on certain issues.
If there is bias, I don't think it is deliberate, just innate. I'm with Marr on this one.
