Brexit BOMBSHELL: How BBC admitted promoting pro-EU BIAS in its own inquiry

According to a 2005 report by The Times, the BBC's own inquiry found the broadcaster guilty of pro-EU bias.

The report, written by an independent balanced panel of eurosceptics and europhiles, did not suggest the BBC deliberately tried to bend its coverage in favour of the EU and against eurosceptics.

However, the document said there was substance to the concern that “the BBC suffers from certain forms of cultural and unintentional bias and that despite the good intentions of its producers nobody thinks the outcome is impartial”.

The report, commissioned to find out if complaints by eurosceptics were justified, said BBC News suffered from an “institutional mindset” that led to a “reluctance to question pro-EU assumptions”.

The Times reported eurosceptics, including Conservative politicians, claimed that the report vindicated their longstanding complaint that the BBC was biased against them.
