England’s BBC is a joke, corresponding more or less to the New York Times, only even more intolerably sanctimonious. Today the BBC reports on Jimmy Carter’s Nobel Peace Prize. The headline says that “Carter Warns Against ‘Catastrophic’ War,” but the story itself acknowledges that Carter “refused to criticize George W. Bush’s handling of Iraq” in his interview with the BBC. The BBC praises Carter’s post-presidential career: “Mr Carter has worked on conflict mediation, election observation, poverty reduction and environmental issues through the Carter Center, which he founded in 1982.” Here is the part I like: apropos of nothing in particular, the article includes a photograph of President Bush with this caption: “Mr Carter’s ideals are in sharp contrast to Mr Bush’s.” Just in case anyone missed the point, I guess.
