Top of the BBC Ten O'Clock News tonight: The man in a dinner jacket, the Iranian President, delivers a speech to the United Nations in which he calls Israel a racist state, causing several delegates, including many European, American and British to walk out of the chamber.
Trouble is, this was reported on by none other than Jeremy Bowen who has been condemned recently for a serious breach in partiality. Bowen is anti-Israel, like a raft of BBC Middle East Correspondents, but unlike the others has been officially censured by The BBC Trust Editorial Standards Committee.
This is the sickest of the sickest jokes, a deliberate two-fingered salute to the people who pay Bowen's wages, extracted by force, on pain of imprisonment.
Whoever was editor on the Ten o'Clock News clearly knew what he or she was doing. Accordingly they have behaved disgracefully.
Fresh from official condemnation of Bowen, the BBC rewarded him with top of the news and possibly the most sensitive story to come out of the region in months.
I am truly horrified. I don't know what else to say.
