Is the BBC neutral when reporting US politics, or do they pick sides like CNN and Fox News?

    --  The BBC is one of the most accurate and unbiased news outlet both within the UK and on their international service. Only the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (and Radio Australia) is equal or better in accuracy and unbiased reporting.

    --  ALL news outlets are biased. Journalists have biases without realizing it -- upbringing, religion, nationalism, culture, experience can affect a person's perceptions. News is constantly edited at different stages from the journalist in the field until it is printed or broadcasted.

    --  Other factors effect the accuracy of stories. Government and military briefings are often wrong, either deliberately or by accident. The same goes for police briefings or other briefings by corporations. Speed in getting a story published can lead to mistakes which hopefully are updated by more accurate information.

    BBC probably is liberal leaning, as are most US media companies. It goes hand in hand with journalism. Journalists study the great novels in college and want to be progressive heroes themselves.

    BBC is liberal, Zionist, biased and very PC.

    The BBC is a real news agency unlike Faux Snooze and CNN.  I find them and Al Jazeera to be the least biased and most professional news agencies.

      Many Al Jazeera newsmen were trained by the BBC and (Australian) ABC. Some were, or still are, BBC or ABC.

    You're claiming there is a neutral point of view?  Seriously?  Nobody will know It's impossible to be a neutral witness.  You're safe in Alt Right TV land, here

    all that is irrelevant

    what is most important is factual reporting 

    there is no such a thing as neutral when it comes to reporting.

    when it comes to biases, that is all opinion based as opposed to actual objective factual reporting 

    BBC has been ranked high in factual reporting

    The BBC is dominated by leftists so it is more like CNN and MSNBC.
