Nick Bryant

The arrest of a 56-year-old registered Republican voter for the series of parcel bombs sent to prominent critics of President Trump led BBC One's News at Six tonight. Nick Bryant's report was notable for way it lurched midway from straight reporting into editorialising:
The initial response from the White House this morning was extraordinary - the President not condemning the attacks but raising questions about their timing, with vital congressional elections just eleven days away. 
That was a senior BBC reporter passing judgment on the present US president.

  1. I heard Bryant say that too, disappointing but no surprise. He is fast becoming the BBCs most opinionated US reporter, obviously learning from his boss Sopel.
