BBC News media bias rating is Center.

The BBC News media bias is largely believed to be neutral, but the corporation has been criticized occasionally for having some liberal bias in their stories. One BBC anchor, Andrew Marr, stated that the BBC is not neutral, in fact the organization has some cultural liberal bias in many news stories. It was not specified if whether this referred to all BBC news coverage, or just editorial pieces.

On Dec 27, 2013, the AllSides Bias Rating™ for BBC was center. This rating represents the bias for the news pages published online, but does not reflect opinion or editorial content. As of July 2016, a small majority of nearly 800 AllSides users who voted on The BBC's bias rating disagree with our rating of center, but those who disagree are split on whether it is left or right, so at this point the BBC bias rating remains center.

The AllSides Media Bias RatingTM reflects the average judgment of the American people.

That produces a fair, verifiable bias rating.
