Unlike the BBC, bloggers don’t have to make editorial decisions based on impartiality. Personally, I think the BBC’s decision demonstrates partiality, after all, many of the other appeals broadcast by the BBC on behalf the Disasters Emergency Committee cut across political, religious and cultural divide, so why make an exception here? It also find it patronizing, suggesting that the audience cannot distinguish between impartial reporting and the need to address human suffering which transcends the issues that concern the editors of the BBC. When the DEC make an appeal you know that there is genuine and pressing need, so please support the DEC and pray that the BBC come to their senses.
