The BBC is planning an Arab-language TV station that would offer news and discussion programmes 24 hours a day across the Middle East.

The Foreign Office, which would provide funding, and the BBC World Service have been in talks about developing a proposal for the station.

I suspect Arab countries will once again accuse this effort of being a veiled attempt at distorting the facts. However, I would hope that with the BBC name attached to it, this TV station can provide an alternative to Al-jazeera.

Of course this new station will distort and bend facts just like every other form of media. You only have to read ot listen to several different reports of the same event to realise this. There is no such thing as impartial reporting because we are all coloured by our lifes experiences, and this affects the way we percieve events.
