BBC Complaints: The link you need!

Sometimes the BBC can be very predictable. (Only sometimes?)

This morning on Today we heard Edward Stourton chatting to Labour's Tony Wright about whistle-blowing, scoring an I.C. of 0. Then came a 6-minute interview with Labour's Hilary Benn about the 'food revolution', during which Ed interrupted only once, scoring an I.C. of 0.2. James Naughtie then popped up to interview a third Labour spokesman, Kim Howell (about the torture story). This lasted 4 minutes and also scored an I.C. of 0. Finally, we get a non-Labour Party interviewee, Conservative Steve O'Brien, talking about access to medical records. He got 3 minutes of Ed Stourton's precious time & was interrupted twice, achieving an I.C. of 0.6. As I.C.s go, that's not high, but it's still noticably higher than the others. This, of course, suggests bias.
