I listened on the BBC world service to the White House news conference, I must say that the BBC reporter was unbelievably rude.
What a contrast to the way that the BBC interviews Labour politicians in the UK, if only you treated left-wing politicians in the same rude way !!.
Also could you explain that whenever the Daily Mail has any comments about the BBC you always fail to put a link to the story, whereas if it was a Guardian story you always link to the story?.

I fear that present day journalism is attracting more than its fair share of prima donnas. Nick Robinson is one of them. It is only too easy with present day communications for the journalist to be the story instead of the story being reported.

Dear editor
It was excruciating to listen to Lise Doucette interview Kofi Anann (The Interview, BBC World Service). It was not an incisive interview, instead I felt she was trying to catch out and contradict the interviwee. It lacked respect, not even listening to answers and it lacked tact - I listened to it twice as I could not believe it. This was a missed BBC World service opportunity. What a shame.
Yours sincerely,
Marie Ciechanowska
