Snatching victory...

Loyal readers may recall that TAE pointed out a BBC headline back in December announcing that Bush suffers Patriot Act defeat. At the time I explained that the headline, along with its accompanying article, was totally absurd, suggesting that it was akin to declaring a football match over even as it was tied and headed into overtime. How embarrassing, then, for the headline writing soothsayers at the Beeb (and how satisfying for TAE) to have to announce today, as the match draws to a close, that Bush wins deal on anti-terror law.

Ha ha. The Beeb is humbled and embarrassed again.

That 'whooshing' sound you hear is BBC's boomerang coming back to smack her in the head.

The irritating thing is that I doubt they have any embarrasment at all, suffering as they do from complete amnesia regarding their own reporting. Have any of them come out to say "we were wrong for scaremongering about 24-hour pub licensing"? Must have missed it.
