No Bias there then?

Mark Thompson, the Director-General of the besieged BBC, while continuing to insist on the ridiculous excuse of "impartiality" in his refusal to air a Disasters Emergency Committee Appeal for Gaza, looks increasingly pathetic in his weasel-worded attempts.

Mark Thompson impartial? The same Mark Thompson who made such a thing of making overtures to the Israeli warmongers?

"Understandably, an official BBC spokesman was anxious to downplay talk of an exclusively pro-Israeli charm offensive."

Fuck me, that was an eye opener. Must have missed it on the colour television news at the time.

I don't think Thompson's visit to see Ariel Sharon was ever broadcast on TV. Naturally, the BBC would have wished to keep quiet about it... not wanting to tarnish their image of 'impartiality'.

Both Thompson and the BBC will live to regret what they have done. It's already backfiring on them spectacularly.
