The BBC published a report on the group on 2004 entitled Bilderberg: The ultimate conspiracy theory, which claimed that "an extraordinary conspiracy theory has grown up around the group that alleges the fate of the world is largely decided by Bilderberg". While noting the secrecy that surrounded the group, they stated that "this year Bilderberg has announced a list of attendees", although the report names only "John Browne, US Senator John Edwards, World Bank president James Wolfensohn and Mrs Bill Gates." The report also quoted Tony Gosling's statement that "My main problem is the secrecy. When so many people with so much power get together in one place I think we are owed an explanation of what is going on", and Alasdair Spark, referred to as "an expert in conspiracy theories" who commented that "the idea that a shadowy clique is running the world is nothing new. For hundreds of years people have believed the world is governed by a cabal of Jews".
