The BBC's 330,000 Pound Throwaway

In the London Times:-

Sir, Is it unreasonable to expect the BBC, our public broadcaster, to be neutral in its reporting, to expose and not ignore matters of national importance, to treat its funding with respect, not to re-employ executives who have been publicly criticised, and to have a complaints procedure that does not require a near genius to navigate? Professor Goode’s defence of the BBC for only doing part of its job is misplaced.
The BBC should always be transparent, and now would be a good opportunity to show it understands its failings and publish its own commissioned Balen report (on its reporting of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict) that it has spent more than £330,000 of our money in concealing.
