Now, one might think that such undiplomatic behavior from the UN’s top diplomat, especially one so renowned for his soft-spoken demeanor, would qualify as fairly big news. Certainly The Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Washington Post all thought so.
Not so the BBC’s website. It’s brief mention of Annan’s address contains nary a word about what was surely the most, if not the only, interesting thing that happened at the news conference. Recall, by the way, that this is the same BBC which found President Bush’s thwarted attempt to leave a press conference so notable that it dedicated an entire article along with a video to the event.
I guess the BBC has its priorities.
