That does make posting any links a bit tricky.

Not when they have online versions, as almost all do.

Anyone who claims the BBC is impartial is simply blinkered.

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.

Well unless that means posting links to BBC articles about the BBC we're back where we started with no credible sources.

Why?

Links to newspapers online are routinely posted.

Because they're equally routinely dismissed as meaningless because of their perceived bias.

Anyone incapable of understanding the difference between the BBC as a corporate entity, and the individuals who either work for it, or provide content, is likely to hold this opinion .

When such people can be found in all corners of the political spectrum it is reasonable to conclude that the BBC continues to meet its objectives of impartiality and objectivity. Regular reviews help to maintain this.

Bias, just like beauty, is always in the eye of the beholder.

We are at cross purposes. You can still post the links.. Whether they are trusted or treated with caution is another question. I donít dismiss such things but I do seek confirmation.

Just the 4 mentioned cost around £30 a week, without their Sunday versions. So at least twice as much!
