This news is much better and relatively unbiased when compared to other sources. It is, however, obviously biased in the climate change, migrant, and UK COVID response debates. Even though the BBC World Service are linked to the government, they make no real effort to investigate and communicate the very difficult choices policy makers have to make. To these reporters, cutting carbon, letting in floods of migrants, and continuing endless lockdowns have no drawbacks. I expect more from Britons.
Oh and as a neutral, American listener, their UK political analyst is so slanted against their Conservative Party and anything related to Brexit that it’s difficult for even me to listen to his contributions. There is nothing about the lack of any real policy coming from Labor, just free coverage of their hollow criticisms of those trying to govern in difficult times.
Still, I listen to every episode because of the state of ‘news’ coverage in the US.
