|Happy Muslim polygamists, here in the UK (courtesy of the BBC website)|
Browsing through the comments at Biased BBC (as one does), I was intrigued to read a highly-liked comment about Azad Chaiwala and his polygamy-promoting website for UK Muslims.
The commenter outlined the story, as reported in the Times, and then complained, "Alas, the silence from the BBC is deafening. What vile hypocrites they are" (for failing to report the story).
That commenter was mistaken, however, for the BBC has not been silent. They'd already reported the story two days ago.
(It's an easy trap to fall into. The BBC's output is so gargantuan that it's easy to miss such things).
The interesting thing about that BBC report, however, is that it speaks volumes about the BBC's present-day reporting, and is a world away from the Times's take.
The Times overwhelmingly focuses on voices critical of Mr Chaiwala and his Muslim polygamy promotion while the BBC overwhelmingly focuses on voices sympathetic to him and his cause.
Of the two, the Times's take is the better balanced. (Blink and you'll miss the 'balance' in the BBC piece.)
The march of moral relativism at the BBC evidently goes on.
If you were wondering what was coming next after the transgender agenda-pushing, maybe it's Muslim-friendly polygamy.
