'Speaking Truth to Power? The BBC & the Middle East'
The BBC's worldwide authority is based on its claim to be balanced and impartial -- and to speak truth to power. Roger Hardy -- who was for twenty-four years a Middle East and Islamic affairs analyst with the BBC World Service -- puts this claim to the test by examining coverage of the Middle East, with particular reference to the Iraq war of 2003.
