BBC mischief continues

Oxblog points out yet another example of BBC’s mischievious reporting. Get this: Tony Blair said (as he responded to a question asking whether he would continue to serve as prime minister in a third Labour term in government): "There is a big job of work to do - my appetite for doing it is undiminished."

And here’s what the BBC reported in its lede: "Mr Blair, who said his appetite for power remained ’undiminished’...."

And not to let a good distortion go, the website then links to the story thusly: "Tony Blair sidesteps questions on the David Kelly affair - but says his appetite for power is "undiminished"."
