Sarah Palin and the BBC's bias

When Barack Obama announced Joe Biden as his choice as VP, did the BBC follow this article with anything positive about the Republicans? I only ask because this is the current layout of the Sarah Palin story (my emphasis):
"McCain picks female running mate - US Republican presidential hopeful John McCain picks Alaska's governor Sarah Palin, 44, as his surprise running mate.
Profile: Sarah Palin
Obama's convention success
US Election issues guide"

The BBC cannot help themselves, there must be a positive Obama story linked to almost every US politics story.

Also I seem to remember that the Democrat announcements were all the one size up in space terms from this story, but then what the Democrats do or say is a story as they will be the winners of the upcoming Presidential election.

The BBC - VOTE OBAMA - it's what we want.

Meanwhile, here is a Sarah Palin fan.

The bbc is both a biased and inept USA observer.
Palin has been on the ticket for at least 4 days and the bbc did not mention it.
Now they will try to cast her in a negative light in spite of the fact that over the last 2 years she demolished Repulican corruption and Democrat moneyed opposition - she is photogenic - has excellent credentials - could prove a contestant for President against Hillary in 4 years time.
In two years as Governer she has more experience than Obama who is going for the number 1 spot.
This bbc needs to be revolutionized NOW!
