The disgrace of the BBC

The Weekly Standard’s cover story is an excellent piece by Josh Chafetz of Oxblog on “The disgrace of the BBC.” Josh compiles a damning assortment of BBC outrages before addressing the Andrew Gilligan/David Kelly controversy, about which he seems somewhat more optimistic than I am.

Josh notes in passing that Orwell based 1984‘s Ministry of Information on his wartime work for the BBC and quotes Barbara Amiel as has having observed, “About the only thing in Saddam’s favor was that you could get the death penalty for listening to the BBC.”
