The BBC is not a neutral source, it is either directly controlled by government or passive to government opinion. I assume the latter.
How do I know this?
A couple of years ago I saw, with my own eyes, a news conference held by the medical team who discovered the body of Dr David Kelly. They announced
that as far as they were concerned, Dr. Kelly DID NOT end his own life.
This was a bombshell and should have led to an investigation and further discussion.
It was never mentioned, either by the BBC or government, ever again.
They just pretended that it hadn't happened, and that they hadn't covered it.
To me this shows that BBC take orders from government on issues that it doesn't want to be discussed in our media.
CH4 on the other hand, have consistently shown more emotion and responsibility in covering this slaughter by Israel. I don't relish the job of any
reporter following what is happening there, I certainly wouldn't be able to talk on air to an Israel official without wanting to beat ten barrels of
crap out of them.
My emotions would get the better of me and I'd have to either end the discussion and my duties there and then, or I'd fly off on a tirade of
In all honesty, I prefer to see a broadcaster with emotions. I'd expect a degree of impartiality in most cases, but in this kind of situation, an
angry response is what is needed from all sections of every society. Including national media.
There are some things that go beyond diplomacy and reason, and Israel killing people and breaking international law is certainly one of those
As for the content:
I'm so sick and tired of seeing the Israeli spokespeople blatantly lying, covering up, deflecting, and resorting to accusations at every opportunity.
They know exactly what the IDF are doing, if they didn't they wouldn't be a very good military would they?
Israel is committing war crimes, and we have to make sure that our governments hold them accountable for it when this slaughter ends.
Israel seems to completely disregard international law. And they refuse to accept that this is what they are doing. They are taking no responsibility
for the actions of their soldiers, if they are not acting under orders.
I don't think there is any excuse now for any person to defend Israel. And you know what? We told you so!
Hamas propaganda? BS!
When the Red Cross, the UN, and Amnesty International all state that Israel is committing war crimes against a civilian population you have no right
to defend Israel.
If you defend the actions of Israel, you are either ridiculously hateful or dumb beyond belief.
