The BBC is biased.
However, there is a problem with this. The Left think it has a Right Wing bias, the Right accuse the Beeb of being Left leaning Liberals, and the Liberals generally keep quiet. My view is that the BBC is biased towards whatever political leaning will keep the licence fee rolling in. If the BBC became a optional subscription service then the current dire quality of output would see it's audience and revenue streams drop like a stone.
There is bias in the BBC, and the most obvious place to see this is in its sports coverage. If a sport has a history that comes from the Establishment then the coverage is second to none. Tennis at the moment getting superb coverage. The Oxford - Cambridge boat race, always gets good coverage. When they can afford it the Golf on the BBC is excellent. If a sport comes from the people, then the coverage is grudging, sparing, or non-existent.
Then there is the one single sport that proves the BBC coverage is biased: Rugby. Rugby Union turns into an Onanistic orgy of self indulgence and endless coverage. Rugby League is treated as if it was sponsored by Al Qaeda and played by pedophiles. In this respect the BBC is one of the most biased organisations on the face of the planet.
