BBC Bias Part 458

Just a couple of little snippets from Radio 4 this morning. From a trailer (7.57 am) for Sunday's 'Broadcasting House' - 'We bring you a portrait of Yasser Arafat - freedom-fighter, diplomat ...' - 'terrorist' seems to have dropped out of the BBC dictionary.

And from R4s eight o'clock bulletin 'Neil Kinnock, who has lost none of his passion to improve the world ...' - I'll try and recall when I last heard them use such language - in a news bulletin - about a Tory.

They don't even know they're doing it. It's 'unconscious and unwitting', to coin a phrase.
