Wretchard over at The Belmont Club writes about another outrage among the Brits this week: the BBC’s refusal to air a segment detailing the exploits of the heroic Grenadan immigrant/soldier Johnson Beharry who won the prestigious Victoria Cross in Iraq for his bravery. The BBC thought it would alienate its audience because of their predominant anti-war sentiment. Read the whole thing including the link to the bio of Beharry. I don’t want to pile on the Brits but this really is awful stuff.

Why not ’pile on’ the Brits for ’really awful stuff’? That generic unwillingness is the root of our problems.
I think the Telegraph has it in for the BBC - this is the third time in a week that I’m seeing negative coverage about auntie Beeb, and it’s all been in the Telegraph.This is a non-editorial piece! Please! And they quote the producers, who have a vested interest in getting the project placed elsewhere. Nowhere does a BBC spokesman explain why the project was cancelled. It could simply be a bad script, in which case they are doing the producer a favor by keeping quiet.
