I rarely listen to the BBC “PM’ drive programme but had the misfortune to do so earlier this evening.
The BBC choose to repeat renewed violence in Gaza in the following way; “Israel has carried out attacks on Gaza after accusing Hamas of violating the cease-fire but Hamas denied firing them”…got it? Cause and effect, eh BBC?
Next there was a remarkable item on the Ferguson riots in Illinois. There were two commentators invited on to discuss. Esther Armah and Gabby Silverman. Ester was race hustling on a mega scale drawing connections all the way back to Slavery, damning white racism and painting Michael Brown as a latter day saint. Listen here at 10minutes in. Quite incredible reverse racism from Armah. I noted that on the Today programme, slavery was also trotted out as the core reason for the riots. Nothing to do with opportunistic thugs seeking to loot and cause damage. No way.
Then, a heated debate on why David Cameron is on holiday. The big issues.
Fair and balanced, as ever.
