Proud to Be Censured by the British Government
I've got a bunch of Brits mad at me because I dared to defend myself for saying that a BBC reporter lied, that his bosses defended the lie and that the network displays a "frothing-at-the-mouth anti-Americanism."
Because I dared to say it, I have been "censured by an agency of the British government."
My attitude has been... do you get a medal with that? If there were an official "I've been censured" medal, I'd wear it on the air right next to my flag pin. Honest... if the palace has one of those, send it on over and I'll wear it.
By the way, it turns out that one of the 24 complainants who busted me to the Brit officials actually worked at the BBC as an intern.
Look... censure if you must, oh mighty Great Britain. But you will not change the truth. The Beeb reporter I was speaking of lied. He didn't distort or exaggerate — he lied.
It's a lie that was concocted to support the BBC's political bias, which was and is anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-American.
I said the Beeb as much, and now I've got Brits writing me to tell me that they're horrified and wondering how I could say such a thing?
I listen to the BBC World Service, and I hear the anti-Americanism dripping from every elongated syllable in every story about Bush, Iraq or America.
If the Brits don't like that observation... oh well. Read my book — "Hating America: The New World Sport."
There is much more of this afoot in the world than just the tired old BBC, and Americans are tired of turning the other cheek.
That's My Word.
