Forget something, BBC?

BBC groupthink (and editorial policy) priorities in evidence there on which group gets top billing. Homosexuals come first, with Jews as almost an obligatory afterthought.
There really is a telling example of that in an an online article published yesterday by BBC education editor Branwen Jeffreys.

It concerns Ofsted's slamming of various unregistered (Muslim) schools for promoting hate. 

Ofsted found "misogynistic, homophobic and anti-Semitic material" in one school...

...and yet the BBC editor or sub-editor responsible for publishing Branwen Jeffrey's piece about that story clearly didn't think that the third of those things - anti-Semitism (for me the most shocking) - mattered anywhere near enough to include it in the article's sub-headline:

Why did the BBC editor/sub-editor 'forget' to include 'anti-Semitic' in that sub-headline? 

That's pretty disturbing, isn't it? 


  1. Were you to inquire of BBC Complaints, the reply, such as it would be, when it arrives will likely be no great surprise.

    I have a few just come back from them, and DPA, that would defy belief (hold that thought) were it not the BBC.

    1. I really, truly did consider writing the phrase "unbelievable - if it weren't the BBC" here.

    2. Great minds... if wearied by the remorseless power of the BBC defence industry.

  2. The anti-Jewish element is, in fact, the least shocking, which is why the BBC decided it wasn't worth mentioning at the top. As we know from Tim Willcox and other Beeboids who are more subtle about it, they understand from where this anti-Jewish sentiment comes, and in many cases agree with it.

    So it's a perfectly mundane bit of information to them, and in the view of most Beeboids, not even particularly the fault of the Muslims teaching it to children.
