    Now it's being reported in the BBC, like Hitler=Bush is odd, what's really odd is that the BBC has been at the forefront of that analogy. :rolleyes:

    The BBC is funded by the state, and characteristically demonstrates a socialist tilt. Much of the European media is primarily funded by taxation of the citizens, with the funds directs by state apparatus. Private funding relative to viewership choices and subsequent revenues reliant upon individual choice is something only American broadcast media generally practices.

    Collection of this revenue is primarily based on ownership of a television, regardless of a viewers choice to actually tune into BBC by choice.

    And interestly enough, the highest authority of oversight over the BBC, consists of a board of appointees who are nominated by none other than... the Queen of England!

    And with such a vast responsibility to be consistently "fair", as the BBC is mandated to be, it's kind silly how they quote Kim Il as a "tyrant" according to Bush, as if there is doubt in the editors mind.

    But as fair as it purports to be, they sure have a problem with Isreali reports and rarely apply quotes appropriately.

    It's actually kind of funny when I checked out their middle east section and scanned each article on Isreal... every single one injected the same statement regardless of the story:

    I guess something like this is out of the question:

    Settlements are considered "illegal" under "international law", though Israel disputes this.

    I'll tell ya, if Kim Jong Il keeps this up, the Kerry campaign is going to hire him.
