O'Reilly is Beebed

"The objective news reporting coming out of the UK in the aftermath of the London attacks has been very impressive...[but] Some people at Fox News seem to be thinking though that straight reporting [refusing to report rumor, refusing to toss around the label 'evil' etc.] is 'pro terrorist' and accuse the BBC of spreading 'anti American' sentiments," writes Sebastian Meyer. "O’Reilly wondered whether the BBC would change its “anti-Bush… bash America” agenda following the London attacks."

To which Roger Mosey, head of BBC Television News, responded:


"A contributor to Fox said after the London bombings that 'the BBC almost operates as a foreign registered agent of Hezbollah and some of the other jihadist groups.' On the Fox website today there is an opinion piece, 'How Jane Fonda and the BBC put you in danger.' I am writing this in a building which was bombed by Irish terrorists. My colleagues and I are living in a city recovering from the wounds inflicted last week. If I may leave our customary impartiality aside for a moment, the comments made on Fox News are beneath contempt."
