I enjoy the BBC's world coverage but I usually chuckle at their coverage of the U.S. and anything involving it. Once in a while they get things right but sometimes, well... California Yankee notes [Read More]

You only have to look at any question time panel to see that the BBC is impartial. It only appears biased to Fox because almost everybody outside of America thinks George Bush is bad for the world independant of right or left leanings. The license fee is more than worth it to ensure that the BBC stays neutral rather than being driven by the interests of big business (and 'The Office').

I'd just like to clear this up. Fox misrepresented the BBC's US election coverage, their reasons for doing this are many and varied.

Anyway, here's link to the BBC's coverage:

Since the guests include Stephen Moore, Frank Gaffney and even Fox's Bill O'Reilly its worth getting the facts before casting apportioning blame or bias.

Here's the BBC's in depth coverage of teh election:

See for yourself who's biased, rather than let Fox do it for you.

£120 well spent.

I am an 27 congolese (Africa) who lives in Europe. I would like to find out if americans know the way people in Africa, the middle east and Europe and see them.
and do you really feel safe outside america?

I don't know, and feeling safe outside of the US depends on exactly where I am at the moment. In Tokyo, Berlin, Rome, Hong Kong, or Paris I wouldn't be at all worried, if I was wandering around the tribal areas in Pakistan, I'd be very concerned.

For a bit of historical perspective, the way Africans think of Americans today can't be worse than it was when slaves were being shipped across the atlantic.

So how are Americans viewed in the part of Africa you're from?

Esperance: We have a fairly good idea how we are viewed. We find much of it rather ill-informed and offensive, but we have an idea.

Cal Yankee,

That panel of four looks pretty balanced to me. They represent opinions from the left to the far left.

The sad thing is in Britain we are forced to pay £120 a year for this balanced reporting whether we like it or not.
