Propaganda piece on Channel 4 News

last tuesday evening (18th february), 7.00pm channel 4 news on channel 4:
propaganda piece presented as news, by award-winning channel 4 journalist jonathan miller: abdel karim – the boy from gaza who never smiles:
jonathan miller was sent to investigate the poor state of the gaza health service, and the thousands of gazan children being treated free in israeli hospitals,
but somehow managed only to report that one boy’s free treatment was delayed (without apparent harm to him) because the unreasonable israelis objected to him being accompanied by suspected terrorists

(jonathan miller of course also makes unsubstantiated uninvestigated claims: of other similar cases, and of import of medical radioactive source material being forbidden by the israelis)
(if you missed it, available at…)

this is the same award-winning jonathan miller who, the day before, felt it appropriate to present a report entitled Gaza’s paralysis: the story of Arab Dola whose sole purpose was to compare gaza under israel with a quadraplegic who could not move below the neck, and needed everything to be done for him, including even “toilet” functions

(05:58) “Gaza’s quadraplegic ‘Bruce Lee’ lies rasping for breath, a metaphor for his crippled unrecognised nation.”
