The panel's report confirmed that the BBC is systematically in favour of the EU and excludes anti-EU voices.
The BBC's coverage of the European Union is not deliberately biased, but "needs to be improved and to be made more demonstrably impartial"... It blamed ignorance of the EU among journalists, a tendency to polarise and oversimplify issues and the corporation's institutional mindset for "cultural and unintentional bias" in BBC news.
Clearly, the BBC has a particular problem with political bias which pervades all areas of its reporting, not just Israel. Activists who wish to change its Middle Eastern coverage might be better off getting together with other 'victims' of its bias to push for a more wholesale reform, and seeing the problem in its wider context.
