Lifted from the latest Open Thread:
And here's a transcript of that 7pm bulletin which demonstrates the contrast in treatment between the two news stories:
A 19 year old who plotted to bomb an Elton John concert in London last year has been given a life sentence with a minimum term of 16 and a half years. Haroon Syed was caught by undercover officers as he attempted to get hold of weapons and explosives on the internet. A man from Sunderland has been jailed for 15 months after admitting pulling a niqab off a woman's face and racially abusing her. Newcastle Crown Court heard that Peter Scotter, who's 56, called her 'a stupid Muslim'. Fiona Trott was in court. "The assault happened one year ago when the woman, who was 29, was shopping with her husband and nine-year-old son. CCTV footage shows Peter Scotter grabbing her veil, which almost pulled her to the ground. Witnesses heard him shout, 'You're in our country now.' The court heard the assault has made the woman afraid to go out. Scotter's barrister said it was perhaps no coincidence it happened shortly after the Brexit referendum. The judge said it was 'appalling abusive behaviour grounded in religious bigotry'".
And it wasn't that the jailing of Scotter was breaking news at that time. Both Scotter and Syed had been sentenced mid-afternoon.
