The power of the threat

Some people believe that the the BBC and other left-wing media are actively in cahoots with Islamists. This Telegraph report puts forward an alternative explanation, fear of violence.

'Channel 4 cancels Islam documentary screening after presenter threatened A screening of a controversial documentary on the history of Islam has been cancelled on security advice after its presenter was threatened. ... Historian Tom Holland's Channel 4 film Islam: The Untold Story sparked more than 1,000 complaints when it was broadcast. Holland was threatened online with a torrent of abusive messages on Twitter. A Channel 4 spokeswoman said: "Having taken security advice, we have reluctantly cancelled a planned screening of the programme Islam: The Untold Story. We remain extremely proud of the film which is still available to view on 4oD." '
Press freedom in the UK is now only possible if Islamists allow it. Happy with that?
