I think the BBCs coverage is biased.
I'd be interested to hear who thinks the same and on which side they fall, in or out.

I think they are "IN" biased. I think it is because I cannot see how the continual expansion of the EU will help anyone but Germany.
Also, why haven't they stressed the "loans" to Greece never went to Greece but was paid straight to German banks to avoid default?
Also, It isn't just the BBC, it is all the major networks.

It all depends on your own leanings - I feel the BBC is leaning over backwards to give 'Leave' airtime. If we are stupid enough to vote 'Leave' I shall feel this appalling result will be partly due to the BBC.
So the reality is that the BBC is probably getting it about right.

Whilst not necessarily right or left wing, they do portray the government of the day in an excessively favourable light, shown recently by their awful local election coverage and the huge petition for the resignation of their political editor. Right now though they aren't sure who will be Prime Minister after the referendum so seem to be pretty even in their reporting, although as each day passes and the Remain camp do something increasingly self-destructive they seem to be siding with the Brexit side more and more.
