BBC News Runs Fake Palestinian Casualty Spin Footage

Have a look at this footage running on BBC News of a Palestinian “casualty” being carried away, apparently injured. Then keep watching:

See the whole package here. Lazarus has been found alive and well in the Holy Land!

UPDATE: This just in from a BBC spokesman:
To the best of our knowledge the pictures do not show any kind of ‘staged’ event – and were run in good faith. The footage shown by BBC News was edited from a longer sequence provided by the Reuters news agency in which the man in question is shown being lifted from the ground. He is then given attention at the roadside, before appearing later having recovered. We ran a shorter edit of those pictures, and would point out that some re-uses of our output by others online have compressed the sequence further. Steps have been taken to ensure any re-broadcast reflects the full sequence so that it is absolutely clear to our audiences. 

McAlpine Sues Sally First

Think they call that “making an example of someone”. You bet Sally is regretting be so flippant in her apology earlier in the week…

New Balls Please

Over the last year one of Ed Balls’ favourite lines has been to remind us that Britain was almost unique among our G20 friends in entering a double-dip recession. He gleefully twisted the knife in his conference speech, a column in the Tribune and various press releases, also reeling off the line in an op-ed for the Standard.[…]

Quote of the Day

David Cowling, the BBC’s head of political research, in an internal memo…

“It seems to me that the London bubble has to burst if there is to be any prospect of addressing the issues that have brought us to our current situation. There are many millions of people in the UK who do not enthuse about diversity and do not embrace metropolitan values yet do not consider themselves lesser human beings for all that. Until their values and opinions are acknowledged and respected, rather than ignored and despised, our present discord will persist. Because these discontents run very wide and very deep and the metropolitan political class, confronted by them, seems completely bewildered and at a loss about how to respond (“who are these ghastly people and where do they come from?” doesn’t really hack it). The 2016 EU referendum has witnessed the cashing in of some very bitter bankable grudges but I believe that, throughout this 2016 campaign, Europe has been the shadow not the substance.”
