The BBC: Myth of a Public Service

3.92 (109 ratings by Goodreads)


By (author): Tom Mills

The BBC is one of the most important institutions in Britain; it is also one of the most misunderstood. Despite its claim to be independent and impartial, and the constant accusations of a liberal bias, from its Reithian origins to its coverage of the 2019 General Election: the BBC has always sided with the elite. As Tom Mills demonstrates, we are only getting the news that the Establishment wants aired in public. And yet in the current age of multi-platform news, this bias is increasingly exposed. Mills asks if the institution is fit for purpose? And can it even be reformed?

The BBC is an important and timely examination of a crucial public institution that may threaten the very thing it was meant to uphold: democracy. See more
