For all its faults, thank goodness for the BBC

I think Seamus Milne hit the nail on the head this morning when saying in the Guardian:

Of course, the British press has long been plagued by monstrous proprietors. In recent times, its owners have been particularly noted for their criminality, from Robert Maxwell to Conrad Black; Muslim-baiting and pornography, in the case of Express Newspapers’ Richard Desmond; and tax-exiled feudal reclusiveness, in the shape of the Telegraph group’s Barclay brothers.

And people wonder why I still believe in the bBBC, right wing biased as it is?
