Craig Murray – Biased Broadcasting Corporation
I am hopeful the public outcry caused by the BBC’s refusal to broadcast the joint appeal for Gaza, will open more eyes to the immense bias in the BBC’s News coverage.
As it has slipped off the front page, I think it is worth reproducing this from my blog for 6 January:
What is Really Happening
I watched BBC World News for a timed hour yesterday. In that time I saw:
Pro-Israeli (including US government) speakers – 17
Pro-Palestinian speakers – 2
Mentions of Hamas Rockets as reason for war – 37
Mentions of illegal Israeli settlements – 0
Mentions of Palestinians killed by Israel during “ceasefire” – 2
Mentions of Sderot – 12
Mentions Sderot used to be Palestinian – 0
If you don’t believe me, try it yourself.
Craig Murray is the former British ambassador to Uzkebistan. Over the last few years he has found himself at the centre of a number of controversies, including Uzbekistan itself and allegations of human rights abuses there, as well as Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov, which recently led to legal pressure against his book “The Catholic Orangemen of Togo.”
