Nh: Gaza, day 25

BBC bias: The BBC is so keen to report on the Gaza war again that it uses a ridiculously strained link to ‘connect’ it to today’s change of Israeli government, and to broadcast an interview almost entirely about damage caused, and reported on, two weeks ago.

BBC bias: The BBC follows its even-handedness policy, of balancing any item about Israel with an (if necessary unconnected) item about Palestinians.

BBC bias: The BBC, reporting on whether war is now more or less likely, broadcasts only an interview not with a political or military expert but with a human rights expert.
