The BBC obsfucating to protect a Labour candidate

The BBC's page on today's PMQs contains this:
Mr Cameron is on his feet and attacking Labour's candidate in Eastleigh, John O'Farrell, over comments he made about the IRA bomb attack at the Conservative Party conference in 1984 in Brighton.'
What did John O'Farrell actually say?
John O'Farrell wrote that he felt  a 'surge of excitement' when he heard of the attempted assassination in 1984 and was 'disappointed' the terrorists failed.

He asked himself repeatedly: 'Why did she have to leave the bathroom two minutes earlier?' The bathroom of Lady Thatcher's suite was wrecked in the explosion. She had been in it shortly before the bomb went off.'

So does Ed Miliband support John O'Farrell's sentiments now? Did he then?

Does this give you a clue?

Meanwhile 5 Live's Shelagh Fogarty is desperately trying to take attention away from Ed Miliband's woeful performance. It was refreshing to hear a non-Labour supporting voice as the journalist brought in to give an opinion on PMQs, somehow I doubt that the FT's Mr Parker will be invited back - very off BBC/Labour message especially with regard to the last Labour government's economic performance on debt.
