    Its not overwhelming evidence. Its a search on google? And results showing other newspaper/media in the UK saying the BBC is left biased.

    On a global scale all US media is right leaning, even CNN. Which makes BBC right of center on a global scale, but still in the center on a western society based scale.

    Compared with US news media, yes, BBC is left leaning, but compared with European media in general for example its right leaning. If the western scale is made up by general European media on the left side, and general US media on the right side of the line, then BBC is pretty much in the middle of all that.. If European media were US media, they would all be considered left leaning, except far right channels in Italy for example, while if US channels were European they would all be considered far right of center.

    Bet ya I could do a google search as well saying the media is right wing.

    Yet in an era when 'left' and 'right' have less political purchase in society than ever before - except for those who insist on keeping hold of the labels despite a changing world - it seems strange to be proclaiming that 'left-wing' as opposed to some other kind of bias, such as a preference for particular issues like the environment, crime policy or the Iraq war, dominates the BBC's output. All the recent external academic and internal BBC studies have focused on the way a particular subject is reported, not on whether its reporting is 'left-wing' or not. Those accusing the BBC of bias have tended to say it under- or over- reports a particular side in an issue. For example, those accusing the BBC of pro-Palestinian bias in its coverage of the Palestinian-Israeli war have used words such 'anti-Semitic', 'anti-Israel and pro-Palestine' or, 'wildly inaccurate', not 'left-wing.'

    Is the BBC institutionally biased?

    I think generally BBC is west biased and UK biased, and clearly anti-Russian. Not political agenda biased.

    Anyways, "left and right" is something else in the UK than in the US, and something else in the UK and US than in Europe, and something else all around the world.

    Oh by far, Fox News is the most unbiased.

    They don't let anything change their minds... on anything.

    I don't even need to read your posts anymore. I simply look at the thread topic and I'm able to glean what your response would be on almost any issue. Not saying that you are wrong in this instance or that you're right, but everything you say is totally and completely predictable.

    Fox News = Satan
    Bush = Satan
    Republican = Satan
    Neo-con = Satan
    Iraq War = Satan
    Reagan = Satan
    Conservative = Satan
    Gitmo = Satan
    Palin = Satan
    McCain = Satan
    Obama = Messiah

    A '"host" of them' means more than one, btw.

    It was the day that a host of BBC executives and star presenters admitted what critics have been telling them for years: the BBC is dominated by trendy, Left-leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism.

    A leaked account of an 'impartiality summit' called by BBC chairman Michael Grade, is certain to lead to a new row about the BBC and its reporting on key issues, especially concerning Muslims and the war on terror.
