Six BBC shows faked the winners of various competitions. Worse, these shows were supposed to provide money for several charities. Several BBC executives covered-up the incidents and they face dismissal, though no one was fired after previous commissions reported on shortcomings and biases.
As bad as these admissions are, they are only part of the problem for the BBC, which is attempting to establish a beach head in the United States with its programming. The BBC has long had such a left-wing bias about everything – from the Middle East to American politics – that it makes our mainstream media look fair. British taxpayers deserve better.
