BBC Biased In War Coverage

"The BBC was attacked by both sides over the Iraq war. It was the only news
organisation apart from the Sun that was targeted by anti-war demonstrators,
and senior managers apologised for the use of biased terms such as
'liberate' in their coverage. Meanwhile, ministers publicly criticised the BBC's alleged bias towards Baghdad," David Miller reports for the Guardian. "The BBC argued that criticism from all sides showed it must be getting something right. The empirical evidence, however, suggests a pro-war orientation. ... The BBC thus turned a blind eye to divisions in the [UK]. A study of
coverage in five countries for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung shows that
the BBC featured the lowest level of dissent of all. Its 2% total was even
lower than the 7% found on the US channel ABC."
