How the Mighty have Fallen!

"Media organisations could receive the Nobel peace prize in future," Professor Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel committee, told

Prof Lundestad speaks on behalf of the five committee members, who tend not to talk about their work to the media. He serves as an adviser to them and sits on all their deliberations, though he cannot vote on who gets the prize. "Good news coverage, as opposed to propaganda or inaccurate reports, can be essential to peace," he said.

Prof Lundestad mentioned several contenders, such as CNN, the New York Times, Le Monde and El Pais.

However, he made a notable exception of the BBC. "Some years ago, the BBC would have been an obvious candidate because it was the international model for news organisations. Nowadays, it is more debatable." He added: "We all know about the problems the BBC has had in recent years," without elaborating.


Errm, I wonder if this could be anything to do with Tony Bliar's brazenly political appointment of the zionist, Michael Grade, as the BBC's Director General and its subsequent transformation into a servile tool of zionist propaganda?
