BBC Still Fighting To Stop Balen Report Being Published

The BBC has lost its latest round of court battles with Steven Sugar, the British attorney who is campaigning to get the BBC to publish the Balen report - a 2004 internal report, conducted by the BBC's senior editorial advisor Malcom Balen, investigating allegations that the BBC's reporting of the Arab-Israeli conflict was skewed.

However, the BBC is still sticking to its guns. After the latest court ruling, a BBC spokesperson stated:

The Law Lords have not ruled that the Balen report should be released. What they have done is clarify the law around the jurisdiction of the information tribunal.

Mr. Sugar has stated that he will take the case to the European courts if need be.

If you'll notice, the BBC claims that they are not fighting this because it's about the middle east.

In Canada, we have a name for that kind of statement.
