"Bin Laden may be dead - Zardari"

So says the Irish Times. This is a good time to recall a post of mine from January 2008, "Say What Now??", in which I compared Al Jazeera and BBC versions of a November 2007 David Frost interview with Benazir Bhutto.

Bhutto refers in the Al Jazeera version to the murderer of Osama Bin Laden, a line omitted by the BBC (we get a typically enthusiastic Frost noddy-shot instead). The video clips are both there to look at and the comparison is interesting in all sorts of ways.

Check it out here.
