I got into a friendly discussion a few weeks ago with a guy from London; he said the BBC were a trustworthy source because they were unbiased. I said, "Aw, come on," but he wouldn't back down (he kept repeating, "It's like gospel," which I didn't think was a British expression at all to refer to the undisputed truth) and I had to admit that I had no real evidence to back up my doubts, except that the BBC showed a patently absurd documentary that maintains that O.J.'s son did it which was rebroadcast on Catalan TV. Well, a group of British bloggers, among them the estimable friend-of-Iberian Notes Patrick Crozier and the indefatigable Natalie Solent, have set up a site to give us plenty of ammunition that's called Biased BBC. Check it out.
