BBC Bias Positively Encouraged

I've been out of the loop for the last couple of days, so I'm trying to catch up on recent events. As I understand it, a completely random group of people have been charged with plotting acts of terrorism to no particular end, at least that's the impression I get from reports like this from the BBC.

C'mon, is there anyone in the known universe who's still buying this ? As Mark Steyn points out, the ringleaders of the September 11 attacks and the July 7 attacks were both called Mohammed - who'd have thunk it ?

Normally, BBC bias is plenty annoying. After all, we're talking about a body that jelously defends its legal right to shake down the public for filthy lucre, even while spending its time slandering a large chunk of the country. Still, when the BBC is producing poorly-written dramas featuring moustache-twirling Conservatives throwing poor people into furnaces so they can sell arms to CIA-backed dictators in the former USSR, there is a lingering fear that some people might actually believe this. I'm not so sure that even the BBC can sell people on the idea that it's just a coincidence that disproportionate numbers of Islamically-inclined folks keep getting caught up in cases like this. Au contrair, the BBC's constant attempts to sell us all on the idea that it's all a huge coincidence may just be the Liberal media's own Stalingrad.
