Je Suis Pravda? BBC Won’t Call Paris Savages ‘Terrorists!’

No partying last night, but nevertheless entitled to feel grumpy this morning, despite a bright day outside and birds singing in the little park across the road.


Paris attacks: Do not call Charlie Hebdo killers ‘terrorists’, BBC says

And this man…

Tarik Kafala, the head of BBC Arabic, so we hear, is not some maverick out to insult the British people who pay his undoubtedly huge salary, but is simply complying with the BBC’s editorial guidelines on reporting terrorism!
So it’s not good enough just to demand his dismissal.
He has the right to blot out the truth in his private conversations and even to go onto a talk-show and spew the disgusting drivel that the term “terrorist” was too “loaded” to describe the actions of the men who killed 12 people in the attack on the French satirical magazine.
But NOT when he’s on the public pay-roll!
The BBC is out of control, irresponsible to anyone except itself. Which is fine for the Independent, or the Guardian, whose editors are paid by businessmen or share-holders who own those papers.
The BBC should represent the nation.

Mrs. Thatcher should have rooted out the enemy within Broadcasting House when they declared their neutrality in the Falklands War.
She missed that golden opportunity, and her successor in Downing Street is infinitely more unlikely to act the way any patriot should.
UKIP should make the BBC’s subversive role a key issue in the coming election campaign.
The establishment parties in Britain, just as in Australia, and Canada, are too wedded to the concept of a state media to tackle Pravda UK, even when it has become so crystal clear that Pravda UK’s fretfulness over the risk that the word ‘terrorist’ might raise doubts about our impartiality – underlines that Pravda UK’s allegiance is NOT to that state.
