Report Finds BBC Guilty of Moonbattery

At last something has come out of the taxpayer-financed abomination known as the BBC that you can actually believe. The Beeb commissioned an independently written report that finds it guilty of flagrant moonbattery:

As part of the report's research the BBC's own controller of editorial policy admitted that people felt that the corporation was guilty of a "bias of omission" by not covering their views. […]
The report noted that the BBC had "come late" to several important stories in recent years, including Euroscepticism and immigration , which as it happens, were "off limits" in terms of a liberal-minded comfort zone. […]
Staff were told to avoid imposing their own liberal assumptions on the audience and told to "embrace a broader range of opinion". […]
Roger Mosey, former head of television news at the BBC, now head of sport, is also quoted as saying the corporation displays "fairly overt support" for multiculturalism. He also admitting having some sympathy with claims of a "liberal/pinko" agenda at times.
He recalled a news item about ethnic communities becoming the majority in parts of east London, where a reporter had told him that they had "worked really hard" to find a white resident who was happy with the situation.
Research in the review also found that even ethnic minorities felt that political correctness had gone too far and others said it was diluting comedy and entertainment at the broadcaster and complained of a "restrictive mind-set".

The report warns that if viewers don't feel the BBC reflects their lives and attitudes, they will lose faith in it — although it's hard to believe that anyone other than confirmed moonbats still have any faith to lose.

Making it crystal clear why government bureaucracies should never control the media.
