BBC is generally reliable but they misreported the cartoon crisis insomuch as one of the 'faked' cartoons was mistaken by them as being the 'real deal' and reported as such which smacks of lazy journalism.

Given the prestige and reputation for impartiality that they've historically enjoyed this struck me as being pretty damaging given that so many people would automatically refer to them for objective info. However, if you examine the links to the BBC that have been recently been supplied they don't show anything other than 'soundbites' from average people given three years ago so I'm mystified as to what they're intended to prove!
