BBC evasion

See below for original complaint:

Thank you for your e-mail.

I understand you feel that our coverage of the Middle East situation has been biased in favour of the Israelis.

However, I assure you that this is not the case, though it is difficult to respond to your main issue and 1st 2 points as you haven't provided any examples of this bias you refer to or where you programme name or website URL, we could research the matter further.

As for your 3rd point, it is difficult to explain the reasoning of either side and it is not our place to do so. We have tried to explain the history of the conflict and the facts though it is not feasible to do this every time we report on the conflict.

Equal representation is not always possible or practical within individual programmes and account also needs to be taken of the way a subject is covered over a period of time. Individual reports may give more time to one particular incident, but we regularly report the suffering felt by both sides. Not every report can include all aspects of the conflict, but this does not constitute bias. Perfect balance is difficult to achieve on every single occasion but overall it is a more achievable goal.

We have registered your comments on our audience log. This is the internal report of audience feedback which we compile daily for all programme makers and commissioning executives within the BBC, and also their senior management.

If replying to this e-mail please use the webform which you used for your initial complaint. This can be found at:

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us.

Hi Kebz!

Couldn't resist dropping you a line about the bbc complaints. In all this time (5 years of war, tears and rage) I have not noticed one change from the bullshit barfing cowards, despite your continued efforts and those of media lens (who I loathe).

I am fairly sure it's a waste of time. On the other hand, scooting around the web, I see many many people are waking up (including the entire voting population of britain as the devotion to NULab has finally melted away?)

Seems to me the US has executed perfectly their military psyops destabilising plan on their rival ally (UK) and the results are excellent: no one now has a party to vote for. Gutted by an indecent quisling groomed by CIA during the 70's for just such a task. The US/UK masterminds of the universe don't like socialism you know, hence the similar gutting of anything decent: NHS, education, you name it. People don't believe me when I say this. For some unknown reason brits are blind to the divide and rule strategy performed on them (now it's "race" and "immigrants" I gather, v. whities.)

How sad. Britain absorbed as the colony of the US with its manias: shooting people in the head (where did the 24h sieges go?), plastic surgery, pointless tv violence for kiddies, mindless games........ Everyone running around like chickens, confused, angry, pissed off and no bleedin' idea why.

I hope they don't bomb Iran, but I expect they will. So far, they have got everything they wanted on their PNAC wish list. ALL of it. Including media on side, keeping the public ignorant about the real plan for us all ... destabilising "friendly" countries' culture and peoples ... Pakistan is an ally? Look at the mess. Britain is an ally? No bombs but the groundswell is angry and growling like a frustrated warthog.

My guess is the brit public won't be swallowing too much more bullshit ...

Look forward to reading your blog, and keep going!

It's not sunny spain .. it's tipping down

Thanks Salialioli. I'm not sure about the british public waking up. I think they are as dozy as ever. The problem is the collective lack of memory. They voted massively for the Tory party so the blindness remains. When they get fed up of the sleazy incompetence of one lot and sufficient time has elapsed for the bad memory to fade they vote the other lot in again. It is no consolation that this time it is all turning to crap no matter which bastards come in as the system is truly fucked. It will take a huge crisis for revolution to come about and a lot of people will suffer.

I find my efforts are dwindling rather as time online is limited as I have too many other things going on in real life. Hopefully, I will start posting again regularly in the summer. Greetings from sunny UK.
