When Were They Ever Impartial?

London (CNSNews.com) – The British government is considering dropping “impartiality” requirements for television news in order to attract younger and more diverse viewers.

Impartiality has been a longtime requirement for public broadcasters in the United Kingdom, as well as for other channels licensed in Britain. But the country’s official media regulator, the Office of Communications (Ofcom), says this may change.

Currently, the Broadcasting Code says that news broadcasts must not favor one side or the other on a particular issue. While this does not mean that “an equal division of time has to be given to every view” possible, it does mean that “undue prominence” must be not given to any one view or person, according to the code.

Okay, now it means that the BBC can switch from what it is now, that is, very much anti-BNP, to what it really wants to be, that is, viciously anti-BNP.
