BBC admits it is biased

Well, how could they deny it?

The Mail On Sunday reports that the BBC held an "impartiality summit" with senior executices and presenters where it was decided that they are dominated by "trendy, left leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism".

That's about as surprising as finding out that the sun sets in the west.

The meeting agreed that the Bible could be consigned to the dustbin in Room 101 - but not the Koran. The "diversity tsar", Mary Fitzpatrick, said she'd be happy for Muslim newsreaders to wear the veil. This is the same BBC who got upset by Fiona Bruce wearing a small cross.

Andrew Marr suposedly said

The BBC is not impartial or neutral. It's a publicly funded, urban organisation with an abnormally large number of young people, ethnic minorities and gay people. It has a liberal bias - not so much a party-political bias.

The meeting concluded that, despite recognising the bias it is "too deeply embedded" to change.

We are taxed - under pain of imprisonment - to pay for this biased, overtly political anti-Christian broadcaster which has a huge influence on the people - here and abroad. It's time to stop funding the BBC - perhaps then, they may realise that it's not so "deeply embedded" that it can't change after all.
