The Wall

BBC bias: Despite less than 20 miles (6%) of the security barrier being concrete*, S4C follows standard BBC policy of never showing the other 94%, deliberately giving the impression that the barrier is entirely or mostly a concrete wall.

* (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_West_Bank_barrier#Structure)

BBC bias: At 0:33:57. series presenter Ffion Dafis silently hugs an unnamed female ‘fixer’ who (0:32:55 to 0:34:00) has just said …
“Many people start to think, okay only God protects me, and many others say, what if I die now, nothing will happen, so that’s why we lose the sense of life, no-one cares, and then we face fear, we face, we see our rights being smashed on the floor, and that we are treated as if we weren’t even human beings, with soul and feelings and emotions, it’s like just creatures, you know, or insects, anyone can step on them and just walk. So when you feel that, you stop caring.

last sunday evening (25th november), 8.00-8.50pm, on s4c tv, in welsh
israel – palesteina (in the al wal (the wall) series. presented by ffion dafis) (possibly fydd rhiannon roberts)
