But currently the Beeb is in an “unusually nasty and high-stakes clashes with two prime ministers: Labor leader Tony Blair at home, and Ariel Sharon in Israel.” The two leaders have have vehemently protested the network’s coverage of their recent military actions and “accused the BBC of being reckless and unethical in recent coverage. Both prime ministers have fought back ferociously, contending the broadcaster’s lofty reputation makes it impossible to shrug off stories they believe are wrong. These are not polite protests.”
