Greece elects conservative 'New Democracy' party in today's elections
In an otherwise unremarkable, and one presumes factual, story about the Greek election results, the BBC chooses to headline its piece with the title: 'Greek conservatives seize power'. Would a similar headline have been chosen if it had been a socialist/leftwing party that had won the election rather than a conservative/rightwing one? Frankly, I suspect not. The use of this headline seems designed to plant a subliminal message that the result is somehow unfair - or is that what the BBC really does mean? Or does it reveal that a political bias does exist within the BBC, something which I have been trying to believe is not the case despite much provocation to the contrary in the past year?
