Even conservatives i know accept that the BBC is the best and most balanced news outlet.
This little piece is interesting on it's alleged bias is interesting, because it looks more deeply at a lefty's defence of it and contrasts it with a righty article which attacks the bbc.
Is the bbc biased? probably, but primarily towards a balanced view which is so sadly lacking from any other news outlet, who often tend towards polemic rather than factual, balanced reporting.
i tend to think that with the bbc's quality of news, the end justifies the means
