Complaint summary: Failure to question, test or analyse the grossly hypocritical pronouncements of President Obama to members of Parliament
Full complaint: I am shocked and appalled by today’s coverage on PM of President Obama’s address to the Houses of Parliament. In a sane world, Obama’s hypocritical pronouncements to abide by the rule of law in the aftermath of the extra-judicial killing of Bin Laden and illegal invasion of Iraq would be greeted with scorn and derision. Instead listeners were subjected to the unquestioning platitudes of your reporter, and worse, the obsequious fawning of Brooks Newmark MP. Where is the balanced reporting? Where are the dissenting voices? Absolutely nowhere to be heard!
