Oh dear, it's been a bad week for the BBC. Their new World Cup pundit has been slated, and now an inquiry has found that their coverage of rural England is distorted by a metropolitan bias. An insider has told The Times that the report, due to be published next week, will say that "The BBC is looking from London into the countryside as a place of entertainment and leisure, and not at the wider social and economic diversity present in rural areas."

Do you agree?
