The Beeb: wanton or woeful?

Here's the Beeb's version of recent history. Stalinist in approach, they just rewrite it:
Whilst Reagan was not directly implicated, the impression that he was not aware of what subordinates were doing tarnished his standing with the public to an extent. In 1989, Reagan resigned and Vice President George Bush took his place.
Hat tip: Done with Mirrors.

UPDATE: I did e-mail them about the error. As of now (10.30 GMT, 15 January 2007), no correction has been made.
