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??
Consider how much money the BBC spends on its image - redesigning the appearance of its website. The content of the BBC remains unchanged and occasionally we highlight the worst examples on offer - either related to bias, quality, or the overall mindset that is the BBC.
Even webpages run by local newspapers offer a search engine that allows you to filter the results, at the very minimum by most recent, or between particular dates. The BBC's however allows you to input the phrase you are seaching for and offers you many thousands of choices. However it is in no particular order, neither by date or any other criteria. If you are prepared to scroll through the thousands of articles, and hundreds of pages given as the result to find the one you are looking for then consider that you might need to get a life.
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?
