Overall the BBC's news and current affairs is really not a 'disgrace' and you need to take a look at your own news sources and their behaviour first. There appears to have been wrong doing here, which may have been covered up. We'll find out, but it's not reasonable to extrapolate that all the fine journalists the BBC has and has had (John Simpson, Orla Guerin etc etc etc for pages) behaved like Bashir did 25 years ago. If you want to be taken seriously, wait for the independent enquiry and even then don't extrapolate wildly. As an avid reader of the Murdoch press you really shouldn't.
