Sri Lanka: Truth, bias and the BBC

Truth and the BBC in the same sentence?

I love beeboid thinking.

"One is that people really care what the BBC says about Sri Lanka. It is the only international broadcaster with a permanent presence in Sri Lanka."

Well gee, if you're the only game in town!

And talk about delusional.

"The second is that, no matter how much we strive to maintain our guidelines of impartiality and accuracy, there will always be people on either side convinced we are biased against them."

Well Bernard Gabony when you openly brag about being left wing, anti American, pro Islamist, lie and fabricate reports, it's easy to be convinced.

Here's an alternate view of the BBC's Sri Lankan coverage, written over a year ago and mentions Mr. Gabony.
