An internal British Broadcasting Corporation memo reveals senior figures admitted the national news agency was guilty of promoting left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment.
News of the memo, reported by British media, comes as the BBC continues to struggle against claims of biased reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and distorted coverage of the global fight against terror, reports the Israeli YnetNews.com.
The admissions of bias were made at a recent "impartiality" summit the BBC held. Most executives admitted the corporation's representation of homosexuals and ethnic minorities was unbalanced and disproportionate, YnetNews.com said.

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Well, the Brits just got an eye-opener. I suppose the practicing Christians in the UK already knew this, but it's nice to have your suspicions vindicated once in a while. As for the general British public, I'm sure this revelation came as quite a shock -- to those who care anyway. It is often said that Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice, and I think it would be fair to say the same for Anti-Christianity in general, especially in Europe. But my question is when will John Q. Public wake up to this reality in the United States and Canada? When it comes to anti-Christian bias, the same could be said of CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS. I'm sure Canada has its share of anti-Christian networks too. Really, this has the potential to become a HUGE story across the whole western world if Christians would just make a ruckus about it. One by one, the networks would be forced to cover the story, and like the ravenous wolves they are, they'll chide each other into releasing information about their anti-Christian bias, thus eating each other alive. But alas, Christians just aren't the type to complain about our mistreatment, and that is our own undoing. By failing to complain, we send a clear message to those who despise us and our faith. We say to them; "go ahead and do whatever you want to us, you'll get away with it, we promise."
