BBC is Biassed

No doubt many readers have been infuriated by the coverage given by the BBC in recent days and weeks about the Catholic Church, the resignation of Pope Emeritus Benedict, the prospective conclave etc.  In my view, the reporting has been very biassed.  The BBC's religious affairs correspondent, Robert Pigott, has not only shown bias, but also ignorance about Catholic matters.  Perhaps even worse have been the features on the Today Programme and on Sunday, where they only seem to want to interview dissenters and critics of the Catholic Church.

I would urge anyone who feels strongly about this bias to make a formal complaint.  This can be done very easily through the BBC website.  By searching for BBC Complaints, the relevant page can be found easily, aqnd it is simplicity itself to file a complaint.  However, for a complaint to be noticed, it needs to be specific and you should quote the programme and its date, as well as stating the complaint clearly.
