The blurb on the Today programme website for Monday (26/11) ran:
"In his new book 'How Markets Fail', John Cassidy claims that the economic calamity of 2008 did not shatter principles of capitalism as there is not a static set of capitalist principles to destroy. John Cassidy and Executive vice chair of the Work Foundation, Will Hutton, debate who got it most wrong in the Credit Crunch."
John Cassidy is that liberal chap from The New Yorker (mentioned a couple of days ago), and we all know Beeb-friendly leftie Will Hutton. After Cassidy had stated his case (attacking Reagan and Thatcher in the process), James Naughtie asked, "Does that analysis attract you Will Hutton?" Hutton replied (as might have been expected) "Yes."
The BBC are often guilty of bias by omission
