- BBC Censoring Open Source: BBC education reporter, Judith Burns, removes the phrase "open source" from education secretary's speech
- BBC sneers at Linux: BBC Click reporter, Microsoft evangelist and anti-Linux bigot, Spencer Kelly, refuses to name the Linux OS powering a new device at CES 2012, then sneers: "As you can see the operating system has been written especially for this tablet, because that's what I think the world needs, is yet another tablet operating system. But seriously... "
- Are children becoming 'digitally illiterate'?: BBC uses report on "ICT" to promote Microsoft Xbox, and inject FUD about the Raspberry Pi project
- Beeb slammed for 'fawning' to Bill Gates: "cringingly servile interview worthy of Uriah Heep"
- BBC's Vista advert: The BBC's blatant commercial advertising of Windows Vista, and endorsement of Microsoft's criminally anti-competitive business practices ~ "But Microsoft doesn't need to worry too much if people are put off by the cost of an upgrade. Vista will be preinstalled on almost all new computers, so they'll get the big sales anyway. That's the genius of Bill Gates' business" ~ Max Flint, BBC reporter (Ed: Jan 2016. Vista is now formally recognised as one of Microsoft's biggest failures)

- The "cross-pollination of Microsoft and the BBC": Microsoft's former IPTV platform Mediaroom and Zune chief, Daniel Danker, infiltrates the BBC's Audio & Music, Vision, iPlayer, online search, and online products and services divisions
- Microsoft's £20 million bribe to the BBC: Undisclosed "funding compromised media objectivity"
