More unbiased covered from that paragon of fairness and impartiality, the BBC:

Jerusalem Terror Attack: BBC Headline Shocker

Featured Media Critiques2 days ago

Simon Plosker

Two Israeli men were fatally stabbed in Jerusalem’s Old City on Saturday evening. The Palestinian attacker was shot dead by security forces after he opened fire on them. The wife of one of the victims and their two-year-old baby were lightly wounded.

How did the BBC initially report on the attack?

Notice how the main focus of the headline is the death of the Palestinian perpetrator who is “shot dead,” effectively turning the terrorist into the victim.

And what is a “Jerusalem attack?” Cities don’t attack people. In this case, the BBC cannot bring itself to apportion responsibility to a Palestinian. Nor does it state that the actual victims of the attack were Israeli Jews.

Disturbing, yes. Surprising, no. The BBC has a history of publishing headlines where Palestinian terrorists are sanitized to the point that inanimate objects such as bulldozers are held responsible for killing Israelis.

While the headline was eventually changed, presumably as a result of outrage on social media, it is appalling that such an initial response could have been published at all.

The entire REASON for a headline is to objectively summarize the story and give the reader a synopsis.

The PERP is extinguished and readers are left to believe there is some kind of oppressive act by the "occupying power".

Given that English was presumably invented in England, I would say this is pretty pathetic.

Their nature documentaries are pretty good though :)

In a Walt Disney sort of way . . .

Too edgy for liberal consumption.

Not having had a TV or watched any BBC output for a decade I'm pretty shocked by just how bad it is.

White privilege being cited to close down an argument? Jesus wept. Another reason why the mass migration of the Blair years was such a catastrophe I guess, now we have this sort of poisoned political discourse as a result.

But one must credit BBC hiring Sasha Baron Cohen.



A little different disguise, but everyone can recognize who Anthony Zurcher really is. ;)

Zapped around looking for foxyhehenews, but got BBC world news, hardtalk, John Major talking about boris and Brexit. Look it up if you can, Nero, you'll like it. Everyone else here, not so much... ;)
