You simply need to read this post by Johnathon Pearce.
He was watching the BBC’s Newsnight program and, well, I simply can’t describe how sick to my stomach I felt after reading his post on the topic they were discussing (the teacher in Sudan who will be punished for letting a student name his teddy bear “Mohammad”) on the show.
The disposition of the Sudanese government representative is just, wow. Go read it. It is only three paragraphs.
The host, who, according to Pearce, is normally a rather outspoken interviewer, just kind of sat there taking it all in and letting the two guests go. I do wonder if, after the show, he came to the conclusion that the world, or at least the UK, had gone completely mad?
