Hardly surprising when we find out that they receive £millions in funding from the EU, and almost certainly that would be the EU's back-up for eventually moving in and taking over another industry.

If you feel strongly there is now a petition to sign for a public inquiry.

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/234797
Signed without hesitation.

That's why it's pointless. The public's signatures will not make a scrap of difference to anything the BBC says and does. It's a national institution that won't be interefered with. One of the staid and crumbly old relics that this country prides itself on. No wonder we can't get with the times and keep up with other nations.

Re: BBC Bias

I'm amused by an article today calling for news posted on outlets like Facebook and Google to be regulated to see if it's trustworthy. Wonder if the BBC would be included?
