Pat, Cindy, and the Beeb
And speaking of the ridiculous Robertson, the BBC's treatment of him is instructive. Two days after Robertson placed himself in the limelight with his idiocy, the Beeb did one of its renowned profiles on him, dredging up all of his past idiocies, which, it must be said, are abundant.
Contrast this treatment to the Beeb's treatment of Cindy Sheehan, who, TAE readers will know, is certainly Robertson's equal when it comes to making objectionable comments (see here, here, and here.) To date, the BBC has yet to mention any of these kinds of statements in any of its outrageously numerous reports about Sheehan, much less having put together a profile of Cindy's greatest hits.
Now why do you suppose that might be? Anyone?
