  • Different perspective

    By Papehrhart
    I appreciate BBC’s perspective on US and world news. In my opinion, the format’s tabs at the top of the page offer a pleasant reading experience compared to other news channels. However, the ads are annoying, as are the “error” messages which act as censors to some articles. I prefer the double starts to the ads.
  • Fair and hopefully truthful

    I decided to turn to BBC because USA journalism has become so sensationalized. Please don’t go in that direction!

    BBC’ World News is the most far reaching and balanced in its coverage of global events and developments of all current on-line or print publications. Simply the best for the inquisitive mind.

    It is incredible that the BBC is so biased! So left wing politically correct. Sad and very unprofessional.
