I know this blog is called BBC Institutional Bias but it now could just as easily be called BBC Institutionally Dumbed Down.
Following on from last years two rappers and a punk band this years proms is schedules to include pop star Paloma Faith (who is she?) Rufus Wainwright and the Pet Shop Boys.
The BBC is in a spiral of intellectual decline that mirrors the dumbed down society in which we now live.
This is supposedly being done to attracted a younger audience but why should the proms necessarily set out to attract a younger audience especially if that involves dumbed down gimmicks.
The BBC used to set the agenda now it just follows as it mirrors every popular trend and fashion.
