BBC Bias: not so subtle

Thanks to for this piece. Here's an excerpt:

BBC Reporting During the First Six Months of 2007 - Summary of Findings:

  • Headline selection for stories in relation to violent incidents is inconsistent. 15% of stories about Palestinian violence named the aggressors while 60% of articles about Israeli operations accused Israel directly.
  • Greater attention is paid to Palestinian voices and opinions than Israeli ones. 19 out of 23 articles and picture series capturing the "man on the street" perspective were from the Palestinian viewpoint.
