Ben Bradshaw's distasteful remarks

When the bbc rejected the gaza disaster appeal -due to their belief in political neutrality there was a hornets nest of disgust - saying the bbc was pro israel etc - this is the same organisation though who as i have showed on my blog is steadfastly pro israel.

I did not know then but do know now, that the culture secretary ben bradshaw says israel has a long reputation for bullying the BBC. this is a disgusting statement for a start israel is a democracy and therefore doesn't bully news organisations and it has a free independent media - and does not tell any media organisations what to say. Secondly the BBC has a history of being vehemently anti israel- as the hushed up balen report showed. Thirdly his calling of israel as a bully shows his own political bias.
