The Society has submitted a complaint with the BBC about an unbalanced item it ran on the Today Programme on Friday 31st March, highlighting the BBC's 'consistent line across all of its platforms of opposition to, and disparagement of, Homeopathy.' click here

 

During the interview, following wide-ranging discussion of issues around the future of the NHS, Sarah Montague suddenly threw in a question about the amount spent on Homeopathy within the NHS, evidently catching Mr Stevens unaware. She appeared to be pushing him to agree with her viewpoint, that Homeopathic remedies are at best placebo and that it is absurd they can be prescribed within the NHS.

The Society pointed out that this was one of only a number of programmes in which the BBC seemed to show a biased attitude towards Homeopathy, which may be the result of relying too heavily on a small number of 'experts', who openly and persistently campaign against complementary and alternative medicine.
