Aheists complain of lack of representation on the BBC

Aheists complain of lack of representation on the BBC
http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/07/..._hp_ref=uk

Quote:The BBC has come under fire for the lack of atheists featured on its programme, as secularists said it did not give due weight to the opinions of those without faith compared to the those who did.

The British Humanist Association called the newly published BBC Impartiality Review "a fatal missed opportunity".

The review sought to assess the range of voices and viewpoints in BBC output in relation to its news, current affairs and factual output, including whether 'due weight' is given to a range of perspectives or opinions, such as whether views held by a minority should given equal weight to the prevailing consensus.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

Tinkety Tonk and down with the Nazis.

I'm reminded of some panels on atheism on US news shows that didn't have any atheists on them.

Representation in what? During debates in general? Debates concerning certain subjects conected with atheism or in which an atheist has something to say? Or social recognition?

Representation during programs which have religious content or are about religion.

Lack of atheists featured? You've got it good. Here in the U.S., I'm just happy when the news doesn't refer to atheists as miserable complainers that want to suck the soul out of our country.

Whiney atheists :p

Stuff I watch is pretty representative of the atheist majority IMO.
