BBC drags its feet over Hamas-supporting reporters


IN THE least surprising story of the month, we heard a week or so ago that the taxpayer and licence fee funded BBC Arabic Service is under investigation.

From the Telegraph: ‘Reporters at BBC News Arabic endorsed comments likening Hamas, which is a designated terrorist group, to freedom fighters, as well as describing the October 7 atrocity as a “morning of hope”.’ Please do read the full article. 

That was on October 14, one week after Hamas’s vile massacres in southern Israel. Have they not been summarily sacked?

Oh dear me no!  Months and months of suspension on full pay will follow, we dare say, while the BBC tries to decide whether calling the October 7 murders ‘a morning of hope’ constitutes bias.

Watch this space. 

Meanwhile Ofcom remains studiously silent despite its new ‘harms’ based broadcasting code. When it comes to the BBC, clearly their own investigation suffices.
