BBC - US Election issues guide

Take a look at the BBC's US election issues guide. Take a read of the issue by issue comments but the real bias is at the top of the article, under the heading of issues. Here Barack Obama is described thus:
"The Illinois senator says he can "break partisan logjams" and unite the country."
A couple of nice positive campaign slogans for Barack Obama.

Whereas John McCain is described thus:
"Arizona senator and Vietnam war hero would be oldest man to become president."
No nice slogans and a dig at his age.

You almost have to admire the shamelessness of the BBC when it comes to political bias. Mind you if you think this is biased political coverage, just wait for the next UK General Election.
