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??
Since there is a questionnaire sent to every audience applicant, from which the political leanings of that applicant can be easily determined, the BBC have no problem ensuring that there will be majority left wing crowd.
However the BBC will claim that they endeavour to properly represent the views held in whatever area they are putting out the programme which we all know is a blatant lie.
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?
