Hypocrisy At The BBC

The BBC is fighting the release of a document that may prove embarrassing to them. There's nothing new about CYA, everyone does it from time to time. What is particularly galling is that if this were a government or large corporation withholding information, the self righteous mewlings of the BBC would be deafening. Remember that the next time some reporter jeopardizes your safety by revealing the existence of some classified intelligence program, because it seems that the public's right is not absolute and is best interpreted by grandees inside organizations like the BBC.
