If you recall BBC Trending reporter Mario Cacciottolo's promotion of a Palestinian propaganda story vis a vis the junior doctors' strike, there's a very strong blast against it from David Collier at Beyond the Great Divide.
His piece ends:
The damage has been done. A terrorist supporting propagandist, has elicited more sympathy for the Palestinian cause simply because the BBC have become willing and blind accomplices. They fell for a PR trick and spread the work of a PR man for the Palestinian cause, undiluted. The ‘reporters’ who regurgitate the spin do not perform even the most cursory of background checks. Our taxes [i.e. the licence fee] funded unfiltered Hamas propaganda without the BBC even blinking.
I strongly urge you to read the whole thing. It shows just how wrong Mario Cacciottolo's decision was.
