Am I hallucinating?

If I didn't know for sure, I would never believe this story was done by the BBC. An entire article not just about Katrina, but about who was to blame for what went wrong, and not a single, solitary mention of George Bush or the federal government. Consider this one paragraph.
A great many of them believe they were let down by their government, at local and state level, and were left there without food, water, medical help, transport out or security. It is those failings that Governor Kathleen Blanco and Mayor Ray Nagin will have to answer for.
Given the BBC's coverage during and immediately following Katrina, who could believe that such a thing could ever have appeared under the BBC logo? Color me shocked.

Yes, it is surprising. The beeb got themselves a new environment correspondent, Richard Black and he seems very balanced and professional for a change. He might have something to do with the post you've mentioned. Maybe times are changing for the good at the horrendously biased bbc.

If he's balanced and professional, he won't last long at the beeb...

I see they still manage to avoid mentioning the uncomfortable fact (for them) that Blanco and Nagin are Democrats.
