in response to reader comment: One word -- WHY?

Submitted by jKalvin (France), Apr 19, 2007 at 08:25

J.S.,

While I do not contest your point regarding the RAND proposals and their implied funding, you are absolutely incorrect about BBC World being biased towards Islamists. The BBC World network is one of the most objective news outlets in the world.

There are nearly seven billion perspectives other than that of your own. The principal goal of news organizations is to report on events, something the BBC is notoriously excellent at. With the advent of 24-hour channels like BBC World, speculative, point-of-view discussion is frequently featured between half-hour news slots...

Have you watched HardTalk? Stephen Sakur rips apart, indiscriminately, any guest that comes on the show. I think it would be difficult to make your point about the BBC.

Again, not disputing (nor agreeing) with any of your other arguments.
