Bahrain and BBC

From Angry Arab chief Bahrain correspondent:  "Read this ridiculous statement about the BBC on Bahrain. I did not read the report but I'm assuming that they believe that their coverage on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is impartial as is their coverage on Syria. The BBC is a joke. I'm not sure what Frank Gardner is talking about  - they emphasized sect when it came in Bahrain from the beginning, letting to overshadow all other divisions in Bahraini society, and completely ignored sect when it came to Syria.  

On a separate note, I'm sick and tired of supporters of the Syrian regime defend the Bahraini uprising.  We don't need their support, and where were they when Bashar AlAsad supported the Saudi invasion of Bahrain?? "
