"Perhaps because they have a perception that some parts of the BBC are, as they put it, liberal, chattering class types, based in London, who don't know about the real world."
Worse, the BBC are too busy fabricating stories to make the world fit its left wing agenda.
There is something revealing about the BBC management in her statements as well: "Greg Dyke once said, 'If you don't like the BBC then I'm sorry it's time to go." Jeff Randall, the BBC's business editor from 2001 to 2005, hinted at the same. "I left because I feared that my role as "an agent of change" (Dyke's term, not mine) had run its course." Clearly Dyke discouraged any form of criticism at the BBC. That explains a lot.
