# War 017 - U2 and the BBC

A number of people on Radio 4's Feedback are concerned that the BBC showed bias in favour of the Band U2 with the free publicity they gave them last week. It now appears a former Radio 2 controller Lesley Douglas, who quit the BBC after the Ross/Brand lewd broadcast last October, became the Director of Programming and Business Development at Universial Music UK which owns Mercury Records who released U2's new album 'No line on the horizon'.

Typical BBC to show bias again under the slogan 'U2=BBC' and even dedicating part of its website offering tickets and links to the band's official site.

This is just another example of how the BBC is institutional bias and out of control and operating as a law unto itself.
