'Malky Mackay, Dave Whelan and now Mario Balotelli. Mackay said: nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers. Dave Whelan said: Jewish people chase money more than anyone else. And Balotelli reposted a tweet in which Super Mario is compared to a Jew because he's good at grabbing coins.'

Malky Mackay, Dave Whelan and Mario Balotelli - differently treated by the BBC, why?
All rather similar comments but whilst the BBC were happy to jump on the bandwagon attacking Malky Mackay and Dave Whelan for other comments that they made more than the Jew related ones, they seem less keen on criticising Mario Balotelli. Are anti Semitic remarks seen as less serious (or more understandable in view of Israel's "crimes") at the institutionally anti Israel BBC?
