"Breaking news: The BBCâ€™s Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen has been found guilty by the BBC Trustâ€™s Editorial Standards Committee (ESC) of breaking BBC guidelines on accuracy and impartiality in his coverage of Israel. (This is the news I mentioned that was due to break tomorrow morning. The announcement has been brought forward.)
This has been a long time coming. Time and time again Bowen has distorted and twisted his coverage of the Middle East. To list all the examples would be a mammoth undertaking."...........
"It is extraordinary to think that the BBC entrusts a man such as Bowen with coverage of such a monumentally important issue. As we saw during Operation Cast Lead, anti-Israel distortion contributes to the atmosphere of hate that leads to violence against Jews on the streets of Britain.
The Zionist Federation said in response to todayâ€™s news: â€œMr Bowenâ€™s position as Middle East Editor of a public service broadcaster is untenable in the light of the ESCâ€™s findings.â€
Too right. For so long this unprofessional egotist has, in my opinion, abused his position to whip up hatred against Israel. He is now officially guilty of breaking guidelines on impartiality and inaccuracy"
