The BBC's Charter and its Producers Guidelines state:
...'Due impartiality lies at the heart of the BBC. All programs and services should be open minded, fair and show a respect for truth? [BBC reports should] contain comprehensive, authoritative and impartial coverage of news and current affairs in the United Kingdom and throughout the world??
I can bet that QT always gets me going and last nights one was no exception.
One question from the audience was regarding immigrants and terror suspects. Debate yesterday in parliament was to strip suspected terror suspects of the their UK citizenship and for the Human Rights law that prevents wrongdoers from being deported because of their "human rights". Not one person on the panel pointed out about the human rights of innocent people who had been murdered by these scumbags.
Also the debate on this particular question was hurried through by DD.
I'm sure when you saw who was on the panel you suspected a wind-up coming. We've seen all too often the lefty mindset that need to show that the real victim in the war on terror are the poor terrorists who misunderstand their religion is really one of peace.
At present, the BBC is only answerable to itself in deciding its standards and coverage. How does it measure up to what you consider good quality, and impartial and unbiased reporting as required by its charter? All TV viewers in the UK are forced by law to pay for this 'service'. Do you believe that what is received truly 'serves' the society, - or merely increases the problems within it?
