Daily Express front page

Well, I’m shocked – that the BBC should want to hire someone with experience of an important area for news coverage, especially since, according to al Jazeera’s own coverage he formerly worked for the BBC anyway – something that doesn’t appear to be terribly unusual for al Jazeera folk.

Except that, again from the al Jazeera report, Ibrahim Helal will be working on “media training projects” – hardly the sort of power-wielding, corporation-rousing position the Express presumably had in mind.

So why does the Express have such a problem with this? Is it just because they’re racists? Or just because they hate the BBC? Or just because they’re stupid?

Or perhaps it’s just a slow news day – nothing else to grab the front page. Yes, that must be it.
