“The BBC, however, is an entity unto itself, as a public service broadcaster. This status leads people to believe that it is generally balanced.

Of course not every story will be pro-government but the overwhelming narrative will be.” – isn’t about this all change. The BBC should be held to account by the license fee payer. It should be non partisan to any government.”
