Why does the BBC drop for NGO and charity puff pieces?

The greatest pests and destroyers of good feeling in our world are the overbearing NGOs and 'guilt-trip-to-you-sir' charidees.

They waste millions of your donations on spurious campaigns, the launching of logos to big up their own corporate brands, paying massive salaries to PR pygmies before handing what's left to corrupt officials in Third World countries.

Hey, it needs saying!

And, of course, the BBC - and particulalry the news on BBC Radio 4's Today programme - drop for all the bleeding heart liberal crap spouted by NGOs and charities.

Why does the Beeb do that? Are its "journalists" not properly trained; never told the difference between genuine news and puff-copy?
