The BBC’s Loathing Of Britain Is A Recruiting Sergeant For Terrorists

  Jonathan Freedland, who just a few minutes earlier Mishal Husain told us worked for the Guardian and the Jewish Chronicle but didn’t mention the BBC, pops up, yet again, on the BBC: The Long View Jonathan Freedland examines the current anxieties surrounding the teaching of history through the prism of history textbooks from around a century ago with his guests in front of an audience at the Chalke Valley … Continue reading

Roger Harrabin…Bob Ward’s Lapdog?

    H/T  Is the BBC Biased         On the Today programe we had a strange lttle report that came from nowhere, (0835) bearing little relation to anything in the news ( the charity commission story is well out of date) and seemingly inserted at the instigation of the BBC’s climate activist Roger Harrabin in order to continue his personal campaign against Lord Lawson’s Global warming Policy … Continue reading

The BBC’s Increasingly Open Support For A Terrorist Organisation

    Which senior BBC journalist said this?: ‘We cannot get across the view that Palestinians are a displaced people who are fighting to overthrow, as they see it, a brutal military rule.’   Who are ‘the many’  senior BBC journalists who say that ‘They simply cannot get the Palestinian viewpoint acoss, the perspective they cannot say is that Israel is a brutal apartheid state.’   They cannot say that..because … Continue reading

No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with Israel

        Hamas bombards Israel and refuses to agree a cease fire That’s one headline the BBC could have, should have, written…instead they chose this one: Gaza conflict: Israel restarts air strikes amid rocket fire   Here’s the front page…once again the emphasis is on Israel and Israel is presented as the ‘aggressor’ in the headline:   No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, no negotiations with … Continue reading

The Slaughter Of The Innocents

    Interesting, as always, couple of exchanges with Nicky Campbell this morning on ‘Your Call’.   Campbell emphasised this is about ‘your calls’…just a shame that that isn’t necessarily true…step over the BBC imposed line of what is ‘acceptable’ and you’ll find ‘your call’ gets you a self-righteous and sanctimonious telling off from Campbell. This morning’s effort was about the conflict in Gaza…though I would object to that narrow … Continue reading

Diversity!! Yes Please!!…ooh er…Maybe Not

    The ‘Henry Plan’ is working…sort of…the BBC has breached the entrenched racism of some of its programming, challenging the stereotypical presumptions and attitudes that have plagued the BBC and that have resulted in the ‘hideous blackness’ of 1Xtra music station…… Ed Sheeran, the most influential man in black and urban music: BBC faces ridicule after singer tops poll for 1Xtra station A BBC power list has named white … Continue reading

The Chill Wind Of Change

    If record heat is a sign of global warming…what is record cold a sign of?   Brisbane hits coldest temperature in 103 years   Coldest Antarctic June Ever Recorded Antarctic sea ice hits new record high with 2.1million square miles more than is usual for time of year

La Grand Silence

    Remarkable silence from the BBC as Synagogues and Jews are attacked….no doubt as a result of inflammatory reporting from the likes of the BBC:       Anti-Israel protesters attack Paris synagogue Clashes in Paris as thousands march against Israel offensive     The BBC weren’t so slow to report any ‘Islamophobic’ attacks in this country after the murder of Lee Rigby.    

Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense

      The BBC’s new drama, The Honourable Woman, is based around events, historic and present day, occurring in Israel and Palestine. We are assured that it is entirely neutral in its approach and does not take sides. The Author, and producer/director, Hugo Blick, tells us he has been scrupulously careful in exploring the issues: The lead character is an Israeli – do you think that might cause some … Continue reading

BBC News: Israelis Target Women and Children

    In 2006 Hamas was busy murdering its rivals for power in the Palestinian territories, dragging Fatah men from their hospital beds before shooting them or throwing other Fatah members from the roofs of buildings. The BBC told us that Hamas were ‘merely flushing out the corrupt and violent Fatah’. How different the BBC reaction when Israeli bombs accidentally kill civilians and hit a home for the disabled.  Whilst … Continue reading

JEREMY BOWEN

I have to be honest and say that I did a double take when reading Jeremy Bowen’s twitter feed. I THOUGHT it has to be a parody but evidently not. Hamas must love him. And Israel has serious questions to answer. Especially after lethal attack on disabled home #Gaza — Jeremy Bowen (@BowenBBC) July 12, 2014 Over the years, we have covered many of the flare ups in this region … Continue reading
