I have just read a book called CAN WE TRUST THE BBC? by Robin Aitken who was a BBC Journalist for 25 years. He gives examples of the BBS's bias and talks of his struggle to highlight the issue to his superiors who either ignore him or deny there is a problem. It's an interesting book and worth a read. It's only down side though is I think he could of been more critical of the BBC but held back.
