Bangladesh: The BBC and Cricket

a bengali in TO doesn't take kindly to the BBC's patronizing view of Ireland and Bangladesh's entry into the World Cup Super 8 round. “The BBC has always been a patronizing old white men's club. Yes, they do deliver (mostly) fair and balanced coverage of the Middle East, but when your main comparison is the CNN, that doesn't say much. These old white men have a few set ideas and are scathing when reality begs to differ.”
