LIES, DAMNED LIES, AND THE MEDIA

The war between Bush and Blair and the media has had proportionately more casualties that the war against terrorism. The latest casualty (more like a suicide bombing) is the BBC.

If you haven't followed the case of Andrew Gilligan, it's an interesting one. About a reporter who admits his reporting was inaccurate (read it and you might think "fiction" would be a better description), but still stands behind it. And his employer, who continues to slant news with a strong Liberal (not liberal) political agenda.

Ironic that today's autopsy of this affair is performed by the Independent, a left/Liberal newspaper.
