BBC's Tabloid Journalism

I must admit, I always thought of BBC as a bastion of culture, rationality, responsible news reporting. So I was shocked when I learned about John Sweeney and his outrageous bad manners and bias.

I found it particularly disturbing to see this clip on YouTube of him heckling John Travolta at the premiere of Wild Hogs in London. Is this what the BBC has descended to or is Sweeney just a blot on their reputation?
