Globes Interviews Asserson of BBC Watch

The Globes interviews attorney Trevor Asserson, founder of BBC Watch, who has recently published his seventh study about BBC's coverage of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Among the study's findings is the following:

According to the study, out of 22 days on which the diary [of Jeremy Bowen, head of the BBC's Mideast division] was published [during Cast Lead], only two days included balanced reports. "A soldier in the IDF spokesperson's unit told me that during an inspection of humanitarian aid going into Gaza, they found night vision equipment that was meant to help Hamas see IDF soldiers. It was hidden among the food. They called Bowen and said to him, 'Look, that's why Israel is suspicious of the humanitarian aid.' He refused to broadcast it. He said there was no story. There can be no explanation for that other than that he is biased."
