On 14 November 2012, BBC News interviewed Sacerdoti following the commencement of Operation Pillar of Defense. After a viewer complaint, a BBC investigation found Sacerdoti's involvement on the BBC to be "in keeping with the requirements of due impartiality in such matters," whilst also noting that "Mr Sacerdoti was introduced as the Director of the Institute for Middle Eastern Democracy, and it was not made clear that he is an active proponent of the Israeli viewpoint." 
In 2001 Sacerdoti was awarded the Oxford University OxTALENT prize for IT and literature.
