    The BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation, has acknowledged the network is biased toward the left, following a report commissioned by the company.

    A yearlong probe revealed the corporation especially partial in its treatment of single-issue politics such as climate change, poverty, race and religion, according to the London Times.

    "It concludes that the bias has extended across drama, comedy and entertainment, with the corporation pandering to politically motivated celebrities and trendy causes," the paper said.

    The report cites the danger of BBC programs being undermined by the liberal culture of its staff, who need to challenge their own assumptions more.

    "There is a tendency to 'group think' with too many staff inhabiting a shared space and comfort zone," says the report.

    It notes staff tend to mimic each other's common left-leaning values.

    A seminar on staff impartiality held last year is documented, with officials admitting they would broadcast images of the Bible being thrown away, but not the Koran for fear of offending Muslims.
