Jeremy Corbyn says that the BBC is biased in favour of Israel
'Footage has emerged of Corbyn giving an interview to the Iranian state television channel Press TV in which he says the BBC is biased on Israel's right to exist.
"There seems to be a great deal pressure on the BBC from the Israeli government and the Israeli embassy and they are very assertive towards all journalists and to the BBC itself… I think there is a bias towards saying that Israel is a democracy in the Middle East, that Israel has a right to exist, that Israel has its security concerns."'

If Jeremy Corbyn thinks that the BBC is in any way pro Israel then presumably he's on record calling for the BBC to make the Balen Report made public rather than kept hidden by the BBC. Did he ever make that call? Will he now?
Of course not, the BBC is institutionally anti Israel and we all know it.
