I accidentally watched part of the BBC world news tonight (I thought I was on NBC -- don't ask). It was their segment on Judith Miller. It's amazing how blatant their bias was; the reporter mentioned nothing of Libby's previous actions or of the criticisms of Miller (or, for that matter, the questions as to what actually was leaked and by whom), simply emphasizing that a CIA covert operative had been outed by Dick Cheney's man because her husband criticized Bush, and saying he wondered how far up into the administration "the order to leak" went. My goodness.
Times like this I feel like C. S. Lewis reading Freud. Lewis said he couldn't speak directly to Freud's psychology, but, when Freud strayed into Lewis's field of linguistics, Freud was so far from truth or academic validity that Lewis felt justified in viewing Freud's other statements with suspicion. I don't know everything about what the BBC covers, but, when they screw up so badly on a story I have been following, I can't help wondering how much of what they say about everything else is similarly selectively-reported mush.
