"Facebook Reveals The BBC As A Liberal Hotbed"

The Daily Mail reports:

The BBC has frequently been accused of having a liberal bias.

But now the corporation’s own staff appear to have confirmed this by revealing their political views on the networking website Facebook.

A survey of BBC employees with profiles on the site showed that 11 times more of them class themselves as “liberal” than “conservative”.

Critics seized on the figures as evidence that the supposedly impartial corporation, paid for by the licence fee, is dominated by liberals.

I know–what a shocker! But as with the legacy media on this side of the Atlantic, the idea that it could hide its biases was pretty foolhardy once the Web made all information instantaneous and retrievable. Besides, it’s not like most journalists these days still try to hide their biases.
