“BBC Bias?”

Peter Hitchens:

I have just taken a phone call from a radio station wanting to discuss Muslim veils. What did I think? You can guess. My views were rejected by the show’s producer as being ‘too reasonable’. Here’s the rule. Moral, social and political conservatives can generally only get on the BBC if they can be cast as extremist monsters, perched on the extreme end of the panel and ‘balanced’ by a presenter who pretends to be neutral and isn’t, and at least three other panelists who disagree with them. BBC bias? Whoever would say there was such a thing?
