My complaint to the BBC over its reporting of Israel's massacre

This is a copy of my complaint to the BBC regarding this morning's coverage of what has happened in Gaza


Dear both,

I was shocked this morning to see the BBC running an full statement from the Israeli government, littered with half-truths and distortions as well as out-right lies, without any critical analysis or opportunity for the other side to comment. This bias is very worrying given the BBC claims to be a neutral reporter of the news and is basically reporting the incident exactly as the Israeli Government would hope. I can barely think of another country that would get such uncritical reporting.

I urge to immediately address this imbalance and conduct an enquiry into the BBC's reporting of Israel and the Middle East conflict, beginning with the shocking coverage of last year's assault on Gaza.
