BBC allows anti-Semitic posting to remain on website

The BBC, which made its reputation during the dark days of WW II, allows anti-Semitism to flourish on its bulletin boards.

Long known for its anti-Israel bias, the BBC's virus seems to have mutated into anti-Semitism. The near-royal hauteur ill-becomes it, considering its recent sins.
"we have decided it does not contravene the House Rules and are going to leave it on the site" despite a rule that states, "Posts that are removed include ones that are considered likely to disrupt, provoke attack or offend others or are considered racist, homophobic, sexually explicit or otherwise objectionable."
The BBC is now considered to be a news source that an increasingly, and distressingly, growing number of people in the United States rely upon to form their views.

Meanwhile, Melanie Phillips report on her website that the BBC has suffered three serious blows to its credibility in recent days, including the disgraceful fabrication of a false charge that the Queen stormed out of a photo session when asked to remove her crown.

The BBC is in serious trouble. In the space of one week it has suffered three serious blows to its credibility as a broadcaster of integrity which can be relied upon to tell the truth.

First, it was fined £50,000 after it faked the results of a Blue Peter competition last November. The show allowed a child visiting the studio to pose as a caller when technical problems stopped real calls getting through. The BBC was criticised for ‘negligence' and for ‘making a child complicit' in the deception. [....]

Yesterday, in an echo of this most damaging debacle [the fabrication about the Queen], it was revealed in addition that BBC TV's Newsnight had similarly reversed a filmed sequence of events, this time apparently to present the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, in a bad light.

The sequence purported to show that Mr Brown's press officer had told the police to question a Newsnight reporter under anti-terror laws in retaliation for an earlier confrontation between them. In fact, the two events had taken place weeks apart and in reverse order. As a result, Mr Brown's officials complained to the Corporation about an ‘unfair, unbalanced, unnecessarily personal and disingenuous' film which they claim was altered to make Mr Brown look like a thug.

Newsnight's editor, Peter Barron, has admitted that the sequence of events was reversed, but has refused to apologise. The BBC has insisted there was no intention to deceive. Disingenuous, or what?
