BBC’s Ranting Point: kick a dying man

Comparing the type of questions that they screened, the guests they had, and the reactions that they chose to publish, it’s easy to see who the BBC is pandering to.

Arafat’s death and illness vs. Sharon’s grave illness.

Complete with solipsistic good wishes for the health of “the most evil man”, casually tossing the phrase "war criminal" around, and one ignorant citation of "Sabra! Shatilla! Sabra! Shatilla!" as more than one caller has put it. Nontheless, some common sense is trickling through. Most of it from callers outside the UK.

Why do I feel like I just wasted an hour of my life trying to live-blog anything Auntie puts out?
