DETECTING & DISSECTING BBC NEWS BIAS …



- From the blog: Tony Blair: Leading the Future [??!!??]

Poppy burning and the arrest of an EDL member who didn’t approve of poppy burning

And… whatever happened to the actual poppy burners? I don’t know. Do you?

This post is a propos nothing all that important, apart from BBC bias. This bias has already been mentioned here today regarding their coverage of the Remembrance Service in London. And my good friend John Rentoul has picked up on it with “Where Oh Where is Tony Blair?”

But if our combined efforts don’t entirely convince you I thought you should know that in my humble opinion the BBC’s utterly brainwashed brainwashing continues to wash over many a brain, brainy or brainless. Got it?

This headline, if you know the WHOLE story, is very revealing:

"EDL founder charged with Muslim poppy protest assault"

It’s getting easier by the day to detect and dissect BBC bias against Tony Blair, the Iraq war, and any suggestion that we have one or two problems with some of our immigrant Muslim population.

I’m almost tempted to wonder if they are in cahoots with all three main political parties, whose political ‘correctness’ and fear of civil unrest puts them in constant denial mode.

As if the headline wasn’t misleading enough – remember this is in essence or SHOULD be a story about Muslims burning the poppy on Remembrance Day – the BBC’s coverage got worse. Far worse.

The only saving grace in this BBC report was the picture showing who the REAL villains of the piece/peace were – MUSLIM DEMONSTRATORS. And the burning poppy was, by the time this picture was taken, hardly recognisable as the emblem of our war dead. The fallen from ALL wars.

I contend that the BBC website only used that picture AT ALL in order to defend itself from the accurate accusation that their news item showed bias against Britain, OUR country, and foreign policy.

Not until we get to sentence four in the item do we get to the nub of the issue. In the first three sentences it is all about an EDL (English Defence League) member who was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer.

I think this whole article deserves line by line, almost word by word dissection.

But before I do that, here some videos and more pictures of the disgraceful behaviour by people who have NO understanding of the meaning of freedom. Pictures perhaps a touch more graphic than the BBC’s, on the ABSOLUTE DISGRACE OF MUSLIMS burning the poppy at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

For the entire TWO minutes that most of the country stopped in silent commemoration this crowd – who quite frankly should be locked up – permanently – yelled “British troops burn in hell”. Interspersed, when they could stretch their single shared brain cell, with – “British troops murderers … British troops terrorists”. At the end of this video they burn the poppy. This started the reaction from EDL members after which one was arrested. WHY, you might ask, since they were somewhere very near this crowd, do we not hear the EDL screaming about these Muslims burning in hell? Simple. They are civilised, and BRITISH. These members of Anjem Choudary’s latest incarnation of Islam4UK – MUSLIMS AGAINST CRUSADES – may be legal citizens of our country. But they are NOT BRITISH.

To the politicians in this blighted land of ours – time is short. It really is.

And a quickie as these creatures become stars for the cameras for a few moments. Sweethearts, eh?

So let’s just check the balance of the BBC’s news report. The references to the EDL members are in blue, those to Muslims Against Crusades in red.

BBC news report:
_____

‘The founder of the English Defence League (EDL) has been charged with assaulting a police officer during a confrontation with Islamic protesters.

Stephen Lennon, 27 of Luton, was held as the Muslims Against Crusades group burnt poppies in Kensington, west London, during a two-minute silence to mark the anniversary of Armistice Day.

Five other members of EDL have been arrested on suspicion of affray.

Two Muslim protesters have been arrested for public order offences.

As the clock struck 1100 GMT, Islamic protesters burned a model of a poppy and chanted “British soldiers burn in hell”.

One police officer was taken to hospital with a head injury sustained during clashes as about 50 men linked to EDL were kept separate as they shouted abuse.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Mr Lennon had been released on bail and would appear at West London Magistrates’ Court on 22 November.

He said four other men, aged 41, 42, 19 and 18, all arrested on suspicion of affray, had been released on bail until mid-December.

The spokesman added that the two members of Muslims Against Crusades, aged 25 and 30, had been bailed until mid-December pending further inquiries.’

_____

That’s 5 sentences MAINLY about the EDL and 3 about the MAF. The second sentence from the end is vague.

Taken as a whole this is BBC BIAS. Nothing less.

Also, take NOTE of the differences in response to being arrested between the EDL member and the Muslims Against Crusades member as sourced from here

EDL member – (A FAIR COP, GUV)

‘Stephen Lennon, the founder of the English Defence League, has been charged with assaulting a police officer, following a showdown between the anti-Islam group and members of the fundamentalist organisation Muslims Against Crusades.'

On the Facebook page “English Defence League (EDL)”, which appears to be run by Mr Lennon, a message was left which said, “i wanna thank everyone that was there yesterday. as i said in Leicester we will combat militant islam where ever it raises its backward medieval paedophilic disturbed head. been charged with assaulting a copper, apparently as i took one of the scums sticks and swang it, it hit a coppers face behind me.”

MUSLIMS AGAINST CRUSADES site – (HARSHLY ARRESTED BY THE OPPRESSIVE BRITISH POLICE)

“Unfortunately, as is the case with the dictatorial British regime, who are unable to live up to their supposed values of freedom and democracy, two Muslim participants were harshly arrested, by the oppressive British police.

“We ask Allah (SWT) to accept the actions of all the Muslims that attended and we moreover pledge that we will never stop condemning the British regime nor their allies until all British soldiers are withdrawn from foreign (Muslim) countries and until the justice of Islam is implemented all over the world.”

So, as well as expecting your Allah to forgive you lot for disrespecting the dead of all wars for the last 100 years, you’re giving your host country TWO provisos? Withdraw from foreign (Muslim) countries AND even then let you creatures set up your barbaric, medieval sharia law in OUR land?

FORGET IT. Forget ALL of it.

They want oppression? The sort they’d get in their historic familial homelands? They’re going to get it if they keep up this behaviour.

Btw, THESE must be the “oppressive British Police” they were on about:
