Biased BBC represents an opportunity missed. A publicly funded body should be held accountable and must uphold rigorous standards of impartiality. The problem with biased bbc is that it does not seek a rational debate but attcks the BBC form an entirely right wing perspective. I had a long look at the site the other day and engaged in debate with a regular, American contributor. To be fair discourse was civil and it touched whether Obama is Left wing or of the centre. Like I say I enjoyed the discussion but the problem was the whole debate was framed by the contributor's claim that a BBC correspondent was lying when she said in a report that Obama was of the centre. The narrative here being"The BCC (or the "Beeboids") are left wing and deliberately lie about politics to confound us." Sure enough other contributions to the thread included terms such as "Cryptocommunist" that Obama won in 2008 "cos he's black" and bizarreley that nazis were really socialists and any attempt to say other wise is part of the liberal rewriting of history. Biased BBC basically means not right wing. Its a shame. I'm not of the left and think a number of these people have pretty sane and decent values. But the ferocity with which they attack those with whom they disagree, is extreme in itself.
