BBC's Bias Rears Its Ugly Head
Even the BBC has some standards. Barbara Plett, a correspondent for the BBC, "breached the requirements of due impartiality" on October 30, 2004 by admitting that:
"When the helicopter carrying the frail old man (Yasser Arafat) rose above his ruined compound, I started to cry . . . without warning."
Yasser Arafat was a murdering pig for over 40 years. During his time as the top dog butcher in the Middle East, the art of suicide bombing was perfected, many say at the direction of Arafat. Thousands of innocent people were murdered at the behest of this monster, tens of thousands have had to live as refugees, scores of thousands have suffered in abysmal poverty, and millions have feared to go to sleep at night.
I have two questions.
- How can a person possibly be reduced to such gutteral moral depths to feel sadness when such a man falls ill? Perhaps Jamie Glazov is on to something.
- Did Barbara Plett cry as innocent Israeli children were hauled off to hospitals and cemeteries because of Arafat's terrorist network?
I giddily await Plett's next objective report on the Middle East.
