Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My view is that the BBC keeps all other news media in the UK relatively honest.

Ooh, no. When I was in Tunisia I got to watch some TV news, and BBC News 24 was particularly good at presenting Atlanticist received wisdom.

Which is why we have Justin 'WTF?' Webb telling everyone that Christianist wingnuts are really quite harmless; and Zainab Badawi wondering out loud on air in tones of utter perplexity how it can be that a tiny minority of misfits might actually not like America; and an interviewer asking a fair trade proponent to justify their ideas in the face of criticism from "the Cato Institute, a respected economic think tank."

The BBC has often been notably sniffy about France and (somewhat less so) Germany too.
