Can someone tell Rob Watson that we want the news, not his opinion?

I listen to the BBC news on a daily basis and appreciate that, by in large, it presents the news in a professional, unbiased manner. The one anomaly to this journalism that I have come to trust, is the American style opining that Rob Watson consistently trots out when ‘reporting’ on UK politics. I have yet to hear him objectively report on the news, and find it surprising that BBC high standards would allow for his ridiculously biased pontificating. I happen to agree with many of his thinly veiled opinions however, I don’t listen to the BBC for op-eds, I listen to it for unbiased reporting of the world’s current events.
