The BBC’s Jon Donnison shows he doesn’t care a jot about the Israelis…it’s all their own fault…
Hmmm….wonder if we can blame the BBC et al for all Hamas’ actions now that they have the BBC in their corner?
Will the Israelis then be ‘reaping’ what the BBC has sown? Of course they won’t be called Israelis then…just refugees, displaced persons…or corpses.
I wonder if he thinks the Palestinians have ‘reaped what they have sown’ when they voted for Hamas and are now getting bombed because of it?
I imagine the BBC journos applaud this from the Guardian’s Peter Preston:
Gaza: where a howl of pain and outrage is the only point of view
For journalists covering the horror in Gaza, it must feel obscene to stick to the old routine of ‘fairness and balance’
If you’re a correspondent living the horrors of the Strip from one ceasefire to the next, keeping count of the toll, tweeting pictures of carnage (like the BBC’s wonderful Ian Pannell), wearing the kid gloves of fairness and balance must seem somewhere between obscene and impossible.
It’s a desperate task, gallantly performed. But there are times, remember, where the rituals of F and B don’t work at all – when the truth is a howl of pain and outrage. Jon Snow had one of those YouTube moments a few days ago when he got back from Gaza. Listen to Aidan White from the Ethical Journalism Network: “Bias is not always propaganda – some stories only make ethical sense when told by journalists with a point of view.” Especially as they wade through pools of blood.
No…bias is propaganda…especially in this case where the BBC is pumping out a relentless stream of anti-Israeli propaganda with the sole intention of trying to put political and social pressure upon the Israeli government. There is absolutely no context for the Israeli actions from the BBC. This is not a single battle, this is a 70 year war with the Muslims intent on annihilating the Jews. Which is why the Jews fight so hard. Another Holocaust wouldn’t be a coincidence it would be genocide, ethnic cleansing, plain old murder….a murder that the BBC has unfortunately decided to take sides in.
