Modern Journalism

Recovering from a week of anti-Christian TV spots for the Easter season, it's no wonder I am supremely annoyed (but not surprised) at the following:

The London Telegraph reports that the bitter old BBC won't air a drama about Britain's youngest surviving Victoria Cross hero "because it feared it would alienate members of the audience opposed to the war in Iraq."

British soldier Private Johnson Beharry saved his fellow soldiers twice while putting himself at great personal risk in Iraq. First he pulled his comrades out of a burning military vehicle while under enemy fire, and the other time he drove his armored vehicle out of harms way after getting a rocket-propelled grenade to the head (among other things). He has been given Britain's highest military commendation, and Britain's national TV network won't air his story. Modern journalism and political correctness at work.
