Hero's tale is 'too positive' for the BBC

Telegraph reported Amid the deaths and the grim daily struggle bravely borne by Britain's forces in southern Iraq, one tale of heroism stands out. Private Johnson Beharry's courage in rescuing an ambushed foot patrol then, in a second act, saving his vehicle's crew despite his own terrible injuries earned him a Victoria Cross. For the BBC, however, his story is "too positive" about the conflict.

Another good reason for the Brits to break up and privitize the BBC. They are worse than PBS and NPR together.
The corporation has cancelled the commission for a 90-minute 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.
So the BBC is willing to admit that it's purpose is not to tell the news, but only to tell things that will appeal to certain people.

Sad but true.

And it's just as true for our msm. Nothing positive is reported because they far prefer the doom and gloom.
