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??
Just watching 'I'm a Celebrity (Silly Brity) Get Me Out of Here', where the viewing public have just voted for the third time for Katie Price aka Jordan to be subjected to one of their vile trials.
I am completely incensed by the mean and nasty mentality shown by those of the public who have paid to subject her to this torture, knowing the mental anguish she is being subjected to. They have really exposed their crass and base nature.
While I am not a fan of this kind of celebrity status pushed by a creative-lacking media who use it to substitute it for the absence of real talent, at least any they attract, to her great credit she has faced each challenge with a lot of guts and spirit - showing true strength of character. Not only does she have to overcome her revulsion to deal with whatever trial she is faced with, she must also have the mental anguish at being chosen each successive time by a majority of the public which she has tried to entertain, and feel punished by them.
Considering that any of the public who has voted in this way must be truly bereft of any kind of virtue or qualities that could be respected, should be feeling quite small, as she has really shown up their meanness of spirit and smallness of nature.
My only other consolation is that if the country continues on its present course, then for what must come in its wake - this kind will truly deserve it.

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?
