Crying On Air for Arafat Brings Censure at BBC

Barbara Plett told listeners that when she saw Arafat leave for medical treatment in Paris, "I started to cry without warning"

A piece of good news comes to us about the BBC. The British Telegraph reported yesterday:

BBC governors yesterday overturned the corporation's decision not to censure a correspondent [Barbara Plett] who admitted on air that she cried at Yasser Arafat's departure from Palestine.
