The one hundred and forty ninth weekly "No shit, Sherlock" award

This week's award is awarded in the full knowledge that the recipient knew that the answer was obvious before they undertook the research. So the award is less about the recipient than publicising the report.

The Commentator reveals for the second year running that:
'the BBC has been shown to have an inherent Left-leaning bias through its newspaper procurement policy which has again displayed a tilt towards The Guardian newspaper.'
The BBC biased towards the left and full of Guardian readers - "No shit, Sherlock"

Here's some more:
'The news comes despite the continuing decline of the Guardian newspaper circulation amongst the general public. The paper, which openly declares its Left-wing editorial line, is one of the least read outlets in the United Kingdom, chalking up around 215,000 sales per day in 2012, compared with the Daily Telegraph's 518,000. 
Despite these statistics, the BBC continues to purchase more copies of The Guardian (68,307 copies) than both the Telegraph (57,763) and The Times (59,490) and manages to pick up 50,398 copies of The Independent over the course of a year, a paper which registered an average of just 75,802 sales per day so far this year, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations.'
