    Totally agree that the BBC do a great job, although I must admit that I prefer Sky News as they seem to be a bit quicker off the mark with some news. I was living in France earlier this year when the DSK incident broke and the difference between how it was presented in the French press compared to the UK was pretty shocking. Very, very biased (in favour of DSK) coverage in France.

    I had to switch over to other news channels after a while as it was so obvious that there was a lack of impartiality by the BBC.
    Newsreaders were using emotive names such as "The Tyrant", "Dictators", "The regime" throughout their broadcasts.
    Al-Jeezera actually appeared to be the most impartial.

    I like Al-Jazeera but Russia Today is a joke in terms of impartiality I would rate it about the same as Fox.
