Asserson vs. BBC

J Post has an article on the BBC’s unprecedented appointment of a “Middle East policeman” to oversee their own coverage of the region. The author gives justified credit to British lawyer Trevor Asserson and the Daily Telegraph, whose work in documenting BBC bias has been important, but doesn’t mention the central role of HonestReporting and other organizational media monitors in pressuring the Beeb to get their act together in Mideast coverage.

As we’ve noted recently, the jury’s still out on the BBC. One appointment does not objectivity make. Stay informed by subscribing to receive HonestReporting communiques: just go to the HR homepage.
