The BBC strongly defended itself overnight against accusations of anti-US bias after British Prime Minister Tony Blair reportedly complained to media tycoon Rupert Murdoch about the public broadcaster's coverage of Hurricane Katrina.
The BBC said it had received no complaint from Mr Blair's office and said that its coverage of last month's natural disaster "was committed solely to relaying the event fully, accurately and impartially".
Downing Street meanwhile refused to comment.
One major British newspaper and a former leading BBC journalist hit out also at the criticism which Mr Murdoch, chairman of News Corporation, attributed to Mr Blair.
R Murdoch told a seminar hosted by former US president Bill Clinton on Friday in New York that Mr Blair had described the BBC World Service radio's hurricane coverage as "full of hate" towards the United States.
