In contrast to Messers Peston and Easton, the lovely Stephanie Flanders has posted an article on her blog (which you will all know is called Stephanomics) that plays fair:
In it she dismantles Labour's latest dodgy dossier on the Conservatives 'Credibility Deficit'.
The comments beneath are full of surprise:

Jolly good, Stephanie, you are starting to look at matters from a slightly less partial viewpoint.

Well done. People were beginning to wonder about the objectivity of the BBC.

At last - a BBC report which does not just regurgitate the Labour line. Impressive, ma'am! You will be sent to Coventry in the BBC canteen; mark my words!

It is nice to see one BBC reporter who shows a semblance of neutrality in reporting on the election. Congratulations, Stephanie.
All the BBC needs to do now is to persuade the Labour supporters who make up the other 99% of the BBC's reporting force to meet the BBC's duty of neutrality, and the BBC will no longer resemble a Labour party political broadcast.
One swallow doesn't make a summer, of course. Still it's a relief to see any swallows on the BBC's blogs!
