Quis custodiet ipsos custodies?

A quick update for anyone who has complained to the BBC about their biased coverage of the Norwich North by-election ...

OFCOM have informed me today that they do not handle complaints against the BBC for bias - that is the job of the BBC Trust.  So, rather than directing your complaint to OFCOM, you should instead direct it to the BBC Trust.  Contact details for the BBC Trust are available on the BBC website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctrust.

Whether the BBC Trust will deal with the complain with the same level of independence as OFCOM remains to be seen.

The BBC Trust auditing BBC complaints fairly is probably about as likely as MPs auditing their expenses appropriately.
