Oh FFS, here we go again, 'new' on the BBC website homepage [a new entry at No.5]:
The parents of three girls feared to be in Syria say police failed to pass on a letter that would have alerted them.Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, left their London homes last month and are thought to have joined Islamic State.It has emerged they had been spoken to by police at Bethnal Green Academy about a friend who had gone missing.The Guardian says the girls were given letters to take home, which they hid rather than showing to their parents.
The BBC. The Guardian. What the parents are moaning about. It's the police's fault. Blah, blah, blah.
This trio of terrorist tempted totty seem pretty much the BBC's default card to whip out whenever the rest of reality, and hence the news in less filtered hands, seems to be conspiring to ruin their carefully constructed narrative.ReplyDelete
It's odd, as best I see from reaction (where allowed), their dedication is not serving their reputation well. Maybe they don't care?
It's a strange thing that they don't seem to care. Licence fee payers, I'd reckon, overwhelmingly don't share the BBC's concerns here one bit. However, if the politicians who pull their purse-strings are content to go along with the BBC's carefully constructed narrative - because it's also THEIR carefully constructed narrative - then, yes, the BBC might be right not to care, unfortunately.Delete
