The NYT Pot Calling the BBC Kettle Black

Criticism of the BBC's leftist bent seems to be reaching a fevered pitch these days, what with the publication of Robin Aitken's new book (see here, here and here). And many others are jumping on the bandwagon. You know it's over the top when even the New York Times, itself a bastion of leftist thought, joins in the accusations, as recounted in this opinion piece in the Times:

When the editorial pages of The New York Times accuse the BBC of anti-Western bias it is worth taking notice. It is a little like Osama bin Laden accusing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of being a bit harsh on the Jews. It suggests that in other, even pretty unlikely, parts of the world, people are waking up to the menace to our values represented by the BBC. The British sadly, seem curiously content to remain in thrall to it.
