BBC journalist Iain Mackenzie has returned from his stint in America. I’ve just stumbled across his newly-named Twitter account and was quite taken with this tweet from last month:

Kudos for pointing it out, Iain, but given the BBC’s record I’ve got to say that’s quite a pair of balls you’ve got there.

Twitter From America

Hey look, there’s a shout-out to the Biased BBC massive from BBC Washington correspondent Iain Mackenzie :

Not so much “Reds”, Iain, as partisan hacks.

Remember Obama’s inauguration?

Or your views on Sarah Palin, Iain?

I’m yet to find an American-based BBC journalist betraying sympathies for the Republican Party. Plenty the other way, though. Funny that, eh?

One more thing Iain – why did you immediately delete those jokey tweets you posted in response to a complaint you had to deal with? Did somebody in a more senior position point out that it didn’t look good to be so flippant? Still, nice for you that you’re so confident about your job, especially in the current economic climate, that you find the idea of journalistic impartiality a bit of a joke.
