I noticed that the BBC was much slower and milder than they used to be in covering the events like this in Egypt.

But I might be mistaken anyways.
BBC is British. In college, they taught us two methods to make emulsions; the British style and the American style. The British one was dubbed "slow but sure".

I don't blame them for being slow; they probably had to confirm that the photos are real and the events are more than one incident.
