Taking sides

Richard Sambrook posts about Newsnight last night in which there was a report on the Taliban from "behind the enemy lines" as it were. I missed the piece (I am going to watch it online later) but could totally relate to this comment:

Suggestions that it is "treachery" because it is likely to influence viewers to favour the Taliban seem to me to grossly underestimate the intelligence and common sense of the public. Just because you interview someone - or listen to them - doesn't mean you support them.

The days when treachery could be so simply defined are surely behind us and, as Richard implies, the sophistication of most viewers, at least in Europe, means that jingoism will simply not be tolerated.

I wonder what Fox TV's policy is?
