BBC Watchers Talk About U.S “Press” 


"This American administration is not crazy about being interviewed by the BBC," she pointed out. "We give politicians a hard time. People are absolutely drilled down."

Atwell can't get over the American media's fixation with writing and speaking about the candidates and the questions of religion and patriotism. Clearly, things are different in her newsroom.

Noting that there are "flags everywhere" in the U.S. media's coverage of events, Atwell said the preoccupation is "absolutely incomprehensible."

She added: "We never put the Union Jack badge here on the TV news. People (in the U.K.) find overt patriotism to be odd."

Speaking about England, she joked, "Here, nobody goes to church."
