The BBC opposed military intervention in Libya and when Cameron and Sarkozy actually committed to the air campaign (with Obama “leading from behind, as ever) there was a lot of BBC huffing and puffing. We all know how things worked out and it is clear the BBC called it wrong. So when the organisation Human Rights Watch produces a report that alleges NATO air strikes killed 72 civilians and that it needs “to bear responsibility where appropriate” the BBC was quick to follow up. There was a quite disgraceful interview on Today this morning @ 7.33am with David Mepham, UK Director of Human Rights Watch, and Oana Lungescu, Nato Spokesperson for the Public Diplomacy Division. Lungescu was harangued throughout and it was perfectly obvious that in the BBC world view, wars must be fought without ANY collateral damage. Further, in the BBC world view if HRW says something then it must be true. Finally, the BBC seems to think that it knows better than the Libyan government. This is both unreasonable and unbalanced but what one expects from this organisation.
