The BBC Revealed Via Facebook

Anyone doubting that the BBC is best described as a large collection of liberals, need look no further than face book, says the Daily Mail: [1]

But now the corporation’s own staff appear to have confirmed this by revealing their political views on the networking website Facebook.

A survey of BBC employees with profiles on the site showed that 11 times more of them class themselves as “liberal” than “conservative”.

Of course, this should be a shock to nobody.  Nor should anyone consider that this situation is limited to the BBC.  Personally, I’d be interested in seeing a similar study done on figures in the news business here in the states.
