BBC admits it is biased

Telegraph reported The BBC has failed to promote proper debate on major political issues because of the inherent liberal culture of its staff, a report commissioned by the corporation has concluded.
Is there a 12 step program for Journalists like there is for Alcoholics? The first step is "admitting that one has a serious, uncontrollable problem."
The report claims that coverage of single-issue political causes, such as climate change and poverty, can be biased - and is particularly critical of Live 8 coverage, which it says amounted to endorsement.
Iy is true for climate change as well. They are endorsing an unproved theory designed to hurt the economies of all Western Powers, just so they can hurt the American Economy (that is why they are so upset we are too smart to go along with things like Kyoto.)
It warns that celebrities must not be pandered to and allowed to hijack the BBC schedule.
Celebrities should just be acknowledged for their acting, singing, or whatever it is that makes them celebrities, and not pretend they know any more that anyone else about other matters.
... The report concludes BBC staff must be more willing to challenge their own beliefs. It reads: “There is a tendency to 'group think’ with too many staff inhabiting a shared space and comfort zone.”
Get a few conservatives on the team.
A staff impartiality seminar held last year is also documented in the report, at which executives admitted they would broadcast images of the Bible being thrown away but not the Koran, in case Muslims were offended.
On that maybe they just did not want their heads chopped off.
During the seminar a senior BBC reporter criticised the corporation for being anti-American.
