Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The BBC was the first to report the stolen election in 2000.  You could easily argue it was the first source to figure it out.

I think you missed my point.  

I was discussing the media's usage of hyperbolic charicature to describe world leaders (ok for Putin, not ok for Bush).  Not whether or not they were reporting the facts...  

Ok, I don't think the BBC has called Bush a "nut."  But they've become a bit less guarded and polite lately.
