Is the BBC biased?
The BBC's coverage of Hamas's latest attempt to embarrass and invade Israel has been as expected as has been the majority of the BBC coverage. I don't watch BBC news at such times, nor listen to BBC Radio news, so I've only been inflicting the BBC news website on me and that been bad enough. The BBC's anti Israel bias shines through as expected.
Sue at isthebbcbiased.blogspot.co.uk has a piece about the BBC coverage that I gave missed http://isthebbcbiased.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/smokescreen.html do go and read it. Here's her conclusion:
'My point is that the BBC is openly inciting hatred. One-sided, factually erroneous reporting only encourages the pro-Palestinians and the anti-Zionists to believe they're supporting a good and righteous cause, and that there is a realistic possibility that Israel will be eliminated.
This gives the haters false hope, and is tantamount to openly inciting, nay, whipping upantisemitism.
Then, to add insult to injury, the BBC reverts to full smokescreen mode, effecting pretend outrage at Corbynistic manifestations of antisemitism. It's a disgrace. Thank you and goodnight.'
It's hard to disagree with any of that. Maybe releasing the Balen Report would help to defend the BBC from accusations of anti Israel bias.
