BBC biased against Christianity

Cardinal Keith O'Brien has accused the BBC of "institutional bias" against Christianity. He said that mainstream Christian views had been marginalised by the corporation, and that a forthcoming BBC documentary about the Pope's visit, would be a "hatchet job". A spokeswoman for the BBC said the corporation refuted the allegations "absolutely".

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Cardinal O'Brien said: "detailed research into BBC news coverage of Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular, together with a systematic analysis of output by the Catholic Church, has revealed a consistent anti-Christian institutional bias.

"This week the BBC's director-general admitted that the corporation had displayed massive bias in its political coverage throughout the 1980s, acknowledging the existence of an institutional political bias."
