Transparency for Thee but not for Me

Reporters are usually the ones filing briefs in courts to force people to reveal things they don't want to reveal. The BBC, however, knows full well this report is going to be very damning. Conservatives have been complaining about the BBC's reporting for years. Some even go so far as to refer to them as Baghdad Broadcasting Company. This will be another strong indicator that there is little case for keeping the BBC as a public entity. If they are skewing their coverage (which is all but inevitable in the news business they should not be publicly funded. Let them sink or swim on their own merits. Either they have a viable product that people will pay for or they don't. PBS, take notice of this case.
