From the UK Telegraph:

The BBC has appointed a “Middle East policeman” to oversee its coverage of the region amid mounting allegations of anti-Israeli bias.

…The BBC has also been the target of Downing Street accusations that it toed a pro-Baghdad line over the Iraq war and that it influenced the Today programme’s handling of the dossier story that is the subject of the Hutton Inquiry.

…The [BBC’s World Service] Arabic Service has been singled out by some critics as the most anti-Israeli source of the corporation’s Middle East output. The BBC denied that the appointment amounted to an admission that it had “got its coverage wrong”…  [“BBC appoints man to monitor ‘pro-Arab bias'”, November 11, 2003]

Then why did the Baghdad Bob Corporation appoint someone in the first place?
