Liberals Outnumber Conservatives 11 to 1 at 'Impartial' BBC

Not only do the liberals vastly outnumber the conservatives at this "journalistic" enterprise, they're stupid enough to admit it on Facebook.

From the Daily Mail:
Research by the conservativehome. com website showed that 1,340 staff put themselves in the "liberal" or "very liberal" category, compared with just 120 who were "conservative" or "very conservative". Some 340 regard themselves as "moderate".

BBC employees went Facebook mad earlier this year, with thousands signing up to log their profiles.
But, don't worry Brits. BBC management has a scheme plan to deal with this distressing news:
Last night the BBC refused to comment on the research, insisting it was a "private matter".

But a well-placed insider said that staff who were Facebook members were likely to be warned to remove their political views from their profiles in the wake of the row.
Unlike "journalists" in the US, the British government funds the BBC's propaganda initiatives.

Via memeorandum.
