Blair government attacks the BBC, while attempting to "fix" the news.
In the aftermath of the Hutton Report fallout
, Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott reopened the war of words between Labour and the BBC by accusing the BBC of slanting their news coverage of the war in Iraq. Apparently, an Iraqi friend of Prescott's, Shanaz Ibrahim, was refused a (unscheduled) interview. What Prescott fails to mention, however, is that Ms. Ibrahim has lived in London for over 30 years, and is married to Abdul-Latif Rashid
, the brother-in-law
of Iraq's president
. So... where have all the *real* Iraqis gone, anyway?
