The complaints against the BBC have been raging for years. Its charter is to provide public service broadcasting throughout the nation. It is funded purely by the public, with everyone who owns a TV set having to pay an annual fee of £131 (soon to be £151). However, since its inception the BBC has built a large organisations, which has at least 4 TV channels, numerous regional channels and a massive internet site. The development does give it edge over other media.
From a busines viewpoint one has to admire the way they have built their empire, and there is no doubt that the quality of their programmes is generally superior to the other media.
Howevere, there is some merit in the complaints that the Guardian are making. There is a bias in the BBC against those who do not agree with their viewpoint and this is the way that they ensure control of controversial subjects, and to a certain extent sway political opinion.
