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??
How does the BBC measure up to its charter?
Thomas Wictor - 'The BBC, a Propaganda Arm of Iran'
Thomas Wictor is a blogger that we have featured several times on this site as discrediting BBC reporting on a few stories with various evidence he was able to acquire.
He now runs another with reference to how the BBC is trying to distort events going on in Yemen. He provides many graphic images and videos to support his stand. Because of the number I won't reproduce his post here but it's well worth a visit. I won't be surprised if journalists like James Delingpole or Christopher Booker picks up on this story in the coming days.
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?
