BBC confession: "We're guilty of leftwing bias"

It's truly stunning to see the mainstream media ever experience a moment of candor and admit to being liberally biased. We all know that they are overtly pro-islam, feminist, homosexual, socialist, and outwardly anti-Zionist, but to hear them forced to admit it publicly is priceless.

Ynet News - An internal memo, recently discovered by the British media, revealed what the BBC has been trying to hide. Senior figures admitted in a recent 'impartiality' summit that the BBC was guilty of promoting Left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment.

Most executives admitted that the corporation’s representation of homosexuals and ethnic minorities was unbalanced and disproportionate, and that it leaned too strongly towards political correctness, the overt promotion of multiculturalism, anti-Americanism and discrimination against the countryside.

A truly shocking revelation to come out of the summit was expected to invoke a storm in Britain, which has already reached the boiling point with regards to the treatment of Muslims and the issue of the veil.

For the purpose of illustration, the executives were given a scenario in which Jewish Comedian Sasha Baron Cohen would participate in a program titled ‘Room 101’, a studio program where guests would be asked for their opinions on different issues, and allowed to symbolically throw things they hated in a garbage bin.

The executives were asked what they would do if Cohen decided to throw ‘Kosher food’, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bible, and the Koran in the garbage bin.

The executives said they would allow everything to be thrown in the garbage bin, save the Koran, for fear of offending the British Muslim community.

Of course, nothing will be seriously done to eliminate the leftwing bias, but let's at least savour this rare, fleeting moment when the evil empire confesses to their sins before the world. Perhaps the New York Times et al, will also now feel compelled to cleanse their souls like the BBC?

I won't hold my breath.
