Better question (or thread, rather), is can we proclaim a single news organization un-biased?

No, FOX only gets attacked by the left as far as I know.

I admit the BBC is biased. I don't love it, and I take it all with a pinch of salt. But I still think its a lot more accurate and unbiased than most news networks and papers. The Sun :O

Well clearly not. If you have a news source that is declared bias on an issue from two opposing sides then you probably have a neutral outlet

I'm just shocked that there's a right-wing website dedicated solely to monitoring BBC coverage of Israel. I claim bias on your source about biased sources.

Totally agree, all broadcasters are biased and the BBC is no exception. However, the BBC is easily one of the most reliable news agencies for impartial reporting.

Also after reading the article, they are attacking BBC over translating semantics. Rather foundation-less, really. Not that I think the BBC (or any media group) is unbiased, but this is a bad example.
