The one problem the BBC can do something about
I have spoken before of the decline of the once-great BBC. This is due, according to the BBC's own pundits, to its insidious, cultural bias.
BBC bias even infiltrates its fictional work. I am no mastermind in detecting a criminal on Mystery, but watching the BBC I can be fairly sure that if an Amercan is involved, he's my man. If he's a businessman, we might as well do ourselves a favour, forget the trial and go straight to sentencing.
Tom Leonard talks about this in more detail in a brilliant piece in today's Telegraph: "As it wrestles with the inevitable decline of its audience in the digital age, impartiality is that rare problem for the BBC – it's one that it can actually do something about."
