    Beeb admits they treat Muslim stories better

    Earlier this week, the director-general of Britain’s taxpayer-funded BBC, Mark Thompson, gave an astonishing interview, revealing that the BBC consciously and deliberately treats Muslim themes more sensitively than those pertaining to Christianity. A practicing Catholic, he treats Christianity with less sensitivity because it is ‘‘pretty broad-shouldered.’’ Islam, however, is a different story. Non-Christian faiths are more aligned with ethnicity, he explained, and race is more sensitive, therefore careful treatment is warranted. Moreover, broadcasters must consider the possibility of ”violent threats” when crafting satire:

    ‘‘Without question, ‘I complain in the strongest possible terms,’ is different from, ‘I complain in the strongest possible terms and I am loading my AK47 as I write.’ This definitely raises the stakes.’’

    The Beeb is a joke... not a humorous one at that and it has been for a number of decades. The overtly biased reporting when it comes to Islam, to my mind, is traitorous. Their continuous bilious slant towards Israel is enraging but not surprising. The fact that Brits have to pay a license fee to keep this contemptible black-hole afloat is not only pathetic but laughable.

    The Beeb is the breeding ground for the political correctness sickness which has invaded every facet of life here in the UK. Recent cases of Muslim gangs targeting British schoolgirls for prostitutuion went unreported for months because the media did not wish to upset the Muslim community. I object to every penny that the BBC steals out of my pocket but I like jail even less so I stump up
