Clearly the BBC has fallen out with the ‘ever ready with an anti Iraq War quote’ Craig Murray whom they used to wheel in to the studios to give a reasoned and fair portrayal of the war….or not.
Here is his views on the BBC’s ‘impartial’ coverage of the recent events in Israel and Gaza (my censorship of Craig’s Anglo Saxon vocabulary)…..

I was trying to come up with a witty and apposite acronym for BBC to describe what I have just seen on TV, but all I could manage was Beyond Belief C**ts.
Watching BBC World News here in Accra, I have just seen forty minutes of intense and non-stop Israeli propaganda. A live press conference by Netanyahu and Ehud Barak followed by a long, long interview with Mark Regev in which the most searching BBC question could fairly be paraphrased as “How can you be certain that those dastardly Palestinians will not break the ceasefire and start firing rockets again?”
No attempt whatsoever to give a Palestinian a chance to put over their viewpoint. Now fifty minutes of solid coverage around the ceasefire without a single Palestinian view or pro-Palestinian or pro-peace view. And in that entire fifty minutes not one mention of Palestinian dead.
Beyond Belief C**ts. Actually, it’s not a bad effort.
