BBC and VOA criticized for flood coverage priorities.

Posted: 21 Aug 2010

Central Chronicle (Madhya Pradesh), 18 August 2010, editorial: "Prominent Western media, particularly the BBC and the Voice of America, have been sharply focused on the Pakistani floods, taking only a secondary look at the floods in China and Europe and refusing to even mention such 'minor' aberrations of nature as the cloudburst in Ladakh [region of Jammu and Kasmir]. The fact that the nature's fury in Ladakh had left nearly 100 American tourists stranded was not enough to move the likes of VOA for a mention in their bulletins."
