Responsible Journalism From the BBC

Journalists the world over should read this BBC blog about the fact that they decided to keep secret Prince Harry’s deployment to protect his fellow soldiers. The BBC, along with the other organisations involved in keeping this quiet, should be congratulated on their common sense and their concern for the lives of the soldiers serving with the prince.

Unfortunately, some unpleasant little hack by the name of Matt Drudge decided that he knew best and that it would be a good idea to run a story on it. As a result, Harry now has to come home.

Matt Drudge probably should be ashamed, but I doubt he’s even capable.
