An article in that most unbiased of newspapers the Express?

About a comment made in 2010 about what Thompson perceived in 2004 on becoming DG?

Journalists as a group will tend to have more liberal views than the average user here. They are though professionals. The BBC has set ways of ensuring objectivity and neutrality. Humans fall sometimes but the BBC as a whole doesnít. Itís the most trustworthy source of information on the planet.

Once again the requirement for an approved list of media outlets. If someone is directly quoted does it matter who reports it?

Of course not but the way it is reported, and the context any quotes are set in, does

.

You are the one using the term, not me. So you specify.

If you mean trustworthy then apart from the BBC, and possibly CNN, none that I regularly use. I look at many but always keep their political stance in mind when reading their take on anything. The BBC has no political stance. It has political standards.

Ones to whom posted links aren't dismissed as propaganda.

OK but a few approved sources would help. Or must opinions on the BBC all come directly from the BBC?

Anyone presenting for the BBC is subject to their standards. The content is edited and scrutinised for accuracy. Obviously not every story gets told and presenters have their own styles, but you can be confident of the objectivity.

Nothing is perfect but it is, by far, the best available. In my opinion and I have yet to hear a counter argument which is anything more than ingrained bias.

Still no approved sources. The Mail and Express are obviously beyond the pale but there must be someone.

In the printed media?

I donít think there are any that are free of proprietary influence in the way the BBC is.

That does make posting any links a bit tricky.
