Liberal Bias at the BBC

, , ,

The Daily Mail reveals that

a host of BBC executives and star presenters admitted what critics have been telling them for years: the BBC is dominated by trendy, Left-leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism.

A leaked account of an ‘impartiality summit’ called by BBC chairman Michael Grade, is certain to lead to a new row about the BBC and its reporting on key issues, especially concerning Muslims and the war on terror.

It reveals that executives would let the Bible be thrown into a dustbin on a TV comedy show, but not the Koran, and that they would broadcast an interview with Osama Bin Laden if given the opportunity. Further, it discloses that the BBC’s ‘diversity tsar’, wants Muslim women newsreaders to be allowed to wear veils when on air.

At the secret meeting in London last month, which was hosted by veteran broadcaster Sue Lawley, BBC executives admitted the corporation is dominated by homosexuals and people from ethnic minorities, deliberately promotes multiculturalism, is anti-American, anti-countryside and more sensitive to the feelings of Muslims than Christians.

One veteran BBC executive said: ‘There was widespread acknowledgement that we may have gone too far in the direction of political correctness.

‘Unfortunately, much of it is so deeply embedded in the BBC’s culture, that it is very hard to change it.’

One Feedback on "Liberal Bias at the BBC"

Dominique R. Poirier

I’m one of those who live in Europe (France) and who expect listening to something in English while riding a car. The only such available radio is the BBC, which is a very good radio for everyone expecting talking in English with oriental accent.
There is an (ill named) Radio Free Europe that beams in some former Soviet satellite countries, but, ironically, not at all in European countries. That’s why I suggest the name Radio Free Europe be changed for Radio Free “Europe”.
