More BBC bias - Go Gordon!, but where's Hazel?

Obama hails special relationship! - Well, that's what the BBC headlines says. It's funny but that isn't how it reads in the press, especially from those who have accompanied Brown to Washington. It sounds more like: "The President will see you now" (but make it quick). Oh, and Prescott has come to the rescue (do'h!).

Further bias comes in the form of the BBC's new 'Where's Hazel?' competition. The idea is that they report on some damning news about the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), and then leave you to work out 'Where's Hazel?' (She is not mentioned once).

UPDATE: Hazel's name has suddenly appeared in the story.

Extraordinary how views differ on this depending on which side of the pond you happen to inhabit.
