No bias here

The BBC is setting up a rival to al-Jazeera and this is what it promises:
"It will maintain the BBC values of accuracy, editorial independence, impartiality, while balancing a wide diversity of views."

The BBC yesterday said its new television service would be "free from commercial, political and religious affiliations or pressures".

I suppose it's possible that some BBC people really believe this nonsense. I've watched the Beeb for long enough. Will they refund my licence fee so as I can try the competition for a while?
