The BBC’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


The 31st of January, 2020—the day for Brexit.

Also, the day that the BBC is having to report the apparent collapse of the House Impeachment Hoax. (Assuming Senator Alexander holds firm.)

Our betters seem to be having the worst of it on both sides of the Atlantic today.

I think I’ll go get another cup of coffee and put a bag of popcorn in the microwave.

When They’ve Lost the BBC …


… the Administration is in a heap of trouble. Here’s what Mark Mardell, the Beeb‘s North American Editor says:

The new documents contain two rationales for the changes in language. The first is that it would prejudice the FBI investigation. Perhaps, but I am not at all persuaded.

The other reason given – old-fashioned butt-guarding – is more credible. However you read the motives, the state department and apparently the White House did get the CIA to change its story.

This is now very serious, and I suspect heads will roll. The White House will be on the defensive for a while.

This is, as one former President put it, deep doo-doo.
