BBC Director General Mark Thompson admitted to the UK Daily Mail in an article today that Britain's state-run news outlet has had a "massive" left-wing bias. He insisted, though, that the network is taking steps to remedy the ideological slant. BBC has a history of promoting the ultra-leftist agenda on most issues. But to see the channel's top dog admit it in an interview with the Daily Mail was quite a sight. Now if only some television outlets on this side of the pond would do the same.

NPR is to the left of Pravda and they rebroadcast BBC.

first of all, they need to buy Alastair Yates some new ties. I used to enjoy their short-wave broadcast.

If there’s something that I agree with European system more than American’s, it is this. Their media are open about their slants. They still argue for ‘objectivity’, but readers know where they come from. The American system is based on ‘honor’ (which most journolists are lacking) that they are all ‘objective’. At the end, most of them abuse the system and wear the mantle of objectivity while at the same time doing left-wing propaganda.

No kidding. You know how we say Hollywood always has to have a gay character in every TV show and movie? Well, movies and TV made by the BBC are twice as bad.

The only thing good in the UK is The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail. Telegraph is probably the best and most honest newspaper in the world.
The BBC is doing this cause the British public is sick of being taxed to fund the sh**ty BBC.

Any BBC reporter could do a thirty second spot on the subject of anything- gravel, for instance, and when they finished, you’d be convinced it was all your fault.
Who’d miss ‘em?
