Beeb Irony

Buried in the Entertainment (!) section of the BBC’s website, is this article on the results of a report on the BBC’s coverage of the Middle East conflict. And the results do not flatter the BBC.

The BBC fails to always give a “full and fair account” of the Israeli Palestinian conflict but is not deliberately biased, a report has said.

The BBC governors asked an independent panel to scrutinise its output.

Its report said the BBC was committed to being fair, accurate and impartial and UK viewers regarded it as unbiased.

But coverage was not consistently full and fair and “in important respects, presents an incomplete and in that sense misleading picture”, it found.

As Israellycool reader Melvyn has shown here, the very web page on which this article is found is a testament to the BBC’s continuation of its biased coverage, despite the findings.

Update: I have just looked the report itself, and – here’s the punchline – it claims there is stonger evidence of pro-Israel bias than pro-palestinian bias. Perhaps in bizarro world..
