BBC’s new recruiting poolJanuary 18, 2004 11:17 by ManagingTeam
Al-Jazeera’s editor-in-chief has quit because he got a ‘tempting offer’ from none other than the BBC.
As we indicated in last week’s communique, BBC corporate policy recently demonstrated yet again, through the removal of Robert Kilroy-Silk while tolerating Tom Paulin, its utter disregard for journalistic neutrality. This latest act of recruiting from jihad-friendly al-Jazeera only reinforces the point – BBC is predisposed to view the Mideast through the framework of radical Islam.
Meanwhile, Kilroy-Silk has quit.
