BBC Watch is Back

It's been awhile since Trevor Asserson did an in-depth study of BBC coverage. But he posted a new report on Beeb bureau chief Jeremy Bowen's coverage of the Gaza war.

BBC Watch reports are available by request. The Jewish Chronicle sums up Asserson's findings:

The report claimed that Mr Bowen broadcast 58 reports, 38 of which were unbalanced. Of those 38, 98 per cent portrayed Israel in a negative light.

Mr Bowen posted 22 entries on a diary on the BBC website. The report claimed that 20 were unbalanced, all portraying Israel in a negative light.

“The Bowen Diary”, as it was called, also frequently offered up Mr Bowen’s personal opinion, an inclusion which, BBC Watch says, is in clear breach of BBC guidelines.
