Guess what?

The way that the BBC understands it's 'impartiality', there is an argument that it is right to balk at running the DEC Gaza appeal.

Whatever. It should run it if it can find a way of doing so anyway, though I suspect the publicity the appeal has got as a result has outweighed any benefit it would have got from an airing on the BEEB.

But - guess what - it may go against the BBC's rules on impartiality. But if they had my definition of the term, they wouldn't be in this pickle in the first place.

There's nothing wrong with taking sides. It's just wrong to stop others from doing the same thing.
