Spontaneous reporting?

Here's a note I have just received from someone I know in Berlin who works for an American broadcaster:
I am watching BBC which I think is the US version, and comparing it to the live European version of a story that ran this afternoon out of Lebanon.... wow.... hardly know they are talking about the same event...... the US version is totally politically correct, the Euro version is spontaneous, you see the cameraman who was wounded bleeding (just his hand), that's been cut out, the children who were wounded, cut out, the live commentary of the reporter who says they spoke to Israel several times, told them where they were, all cut out..... reporter now a sophisticated, made up woman in a studio, the commentary voice over by someone else, not the original reporter.....
The BBC? The Bush Broadcasting Corporation? The Blair Broadcasting Corporation?
