Bias?

Has anyone else felt that BBC is biased when it comes to India-Pakistan? In quite a few of their earlier news reports on Kashmir I have felt that they mostly show the Pakistan side of the story, their point of view etc. But after these recent earthquake in Kashmir, IMO, they seem hell-bent picking on the Indian administration's relief efforts. Check out cruel joke, cold and hungry and do Indians care?

Aps, I hardly check news websites nowadays, thanks to blogging. Only rediff..thats it.

The bias thing has something to do with quite a large Paki population in UK, IMHO..

Most news websites are biased, its become a business, in a interview to PBS the CNN chief even accepted that fact. The only consolation is there are different news sources, which gives the perspectives from each side, guess the reader has to decide which one is true !!!!!
IMO PBS is one of the best news organization that I have seen in the US.

Come on Aparna. We dont need Neutral news.. thats not interesting :)

I have come to a hypothesis that news cannot be Neutral. It is biassed always in someways. Only the Law people, ior even fair the Judges can produce Neutral news. Get my point ?

Hi Aparna,
I came across your blog when I was searching on bias of BBC. I too was wondering about the same questions as to why is BBC hell bent on bashing India at this point of time. I used to think that BBC used to be quite unbiassed. Not anymore.
I agree with you totally !
