BBC: ‘Impartial but not informative enough’

The BBC may be impartial but it is not informative enough, argues Sunny Hundal, editor of AIM, the Asians In Media web magazine,

Commenting on a piece in the Guardian where Michael Grade, the BBC’s chairman, examines the issues surrounding impartiality in the digital age, Hundal writes:

The problem isn’t that the BBC is insufficiently impartial, but rather it is not being informative enough. The corporation, in a desperate bid to keep its audience, is contributing to the death of debate by seeking to entertain rather than inform its audiences, even in current affairs and news.

I am not going to try to summarise the arguments of either Grade or Hundal as they would inevitably be distorted. They are both worth reading in full.
