Please make sure you click on the comments from my previous post & have a read of Ryan's wonderful research.
He has discovered that Sarah Bell, the BBC journalist who went to the constituency of her friend Susan Kramer, the sitting Lib Dem MP, and wrote that article for the BBC website (the one that so outraged Jonathan Isaby) saying that everyone she talked to there would be voting for her friend Susan Kramer - though she didn't mention in the article that she is a friend of Susan Kramer - is a friend of Susan Kramer.
He has also discovered - and this is a killer! - that Chris Summers, the guy in the BBC Complaints department who dealt with his complaint about the Live Election blog - and possibly your complaint too -, is also a Labour candidate in Ealing who regards the BBC's guidelines on impartiality - the point at issue for Ryan, and for me - with nothing but contempt.
Guido has now taken this up:
Well done Ryan! As our American friends say, 'You're the man!!'
P.S. I do like this comment on Guido's blog:

Its biased, but not that biased. MSNBC is Fox News for lefties. The BBC is institutionally biased to the EU-friendly, Anthropomorphic Climate Change concerned left. But it is populated by quite a number of right wing commentators. Andrew Neil, Jeremy Clarkson, Nick Robinson to name a few. Its comedy output is so left wing its silly though. It’s not as bad as its made out to be though all things considered.
To name a few!!! Now I could name more than a few left-wing commentators, and there will be more than three of them: Carolyn Quinn, James Naughtie, Kirsty Wark, Gavin Esler, Paddy O'Connell, Paul Mason, Michael Crick, Mark Easton, Jo Coburn, Anita Anand, Andrew Marr, John Humphrys, Jon Manel, Jonty Bloom...I could go on and on and on...
