    This is a myth. The BBC is required to be balanced, not impartial. There is a difference.
    Incorrect. Impartiality is referenced in BBC editorial guidelines, by the BBC Trust and the BBC Charter. Showing due balance between opposing views is mentioned as a method of ensuring impartiality.

    Or perhaps the BBC audience have absolutely no idea what primary and secondary income deficits and fdi and portfolio investments are... or care. ...
    Journalists ask questions about these things in private interviews and do research and then present the answers in a form that can be understood.

    BBC Reporters simply operate a Punch and Judy show.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
