A Quick Note On The United Kingdom Parliamentary Elections

For most of Thursday night, I spent the evening watching the British Broadcasting Corporation's coverage of their country's parliamentary elections.

I can now say, without hesitation, that British reporters do a better job holding their elected officials accountable than their American counterparts. And, I've also come to the conclusion that the American press coddles U.S. politicians.

If anyone wants a taste of what I'm talking about, just spend thirty minutes watching the BBC's 2010 election coverage.
