Since the story came out of the BBC's "impartiality summit" at which some of its poster boys and girls owned up to their institution's inbuilt bias, quite a few commentators have followed up with astringent critiques.
The BBC's coverage of the government's last minute U-turn away from forcing new faith schools to take 25% of their pupils either from other faiths or none was another example of its bias in action. It was clear enough from news programme after news programme what the inbuilt line was. There were questions like,"Do you really believe faith schools aren't a threat to community cohesion?"
One of the shout lines on today's BBC News website reads:
The Archbishop of Canterbury has insisted faith schools are not harmful to the cohesion of society
As far as I'm aware, there's never been any empirical evidence of any kind that faith schools in England are in any way harmful to social cohesion.
Which brings me to the BBC's role in promoting the idea that they are.
