Ian Birrell has been on something of a tear with two important pieces on Foreign Aid in the Guardian. “Overseas Aid – An Indefensible Ring Fence” and “Red Nose Day: Media Short-changes the Poor with its Soft Soap Aid Coverage“.  The latter mainly refers to the BBC which continues to give the equivalent of free advertising space to NGOs and charity campaigns (like this DEC Syria Appeal) as if they were not only politically neutral but uncontroversial in any way and a good thing that must not be examined or questioned in any way.
