BBC science and technology reporters continue to lead on accuracy and impartiality

Showing once again that some of the best BBC reporting on Israel comes from the corporation’s science and technology correspondents, here are a few recent reports which have appeared on the BBC News website.Phone battery story

On April 2nd a written report by science reporter Melissa Hogenboom on a study of the effects of oxytocin on the behaviour of members of groups, carried out by a researcher from Ben Gurion University in Be’er Sheva, appeared on the ‘Science & Environment’ page of the BBC News website.

On April 8th a written report on an Israeli start-up company which is in the process of developing a mobile phone battery capable of full charging in thirty seconds appeared in the BBC News website’s ‘Technology’ section.

The next day, a filmed report on the same topic from a BBC news programme also appeared on the ‘Technology’ page of the website.

What a pity it is that the same standards of interesting, pertinent, accurate and impartial reporting are so hard to come by on Israel-related topics with a political component.

One comment on “BBC science and technology reporters continue to lead on accuracy and impartiality

  1. The BBC does have a place in broadcasting.

    Just that now, anything with any political leanings coming from the BBC ‘stables’ is highly suspect. Anything. Not just relating to the United States, Israel, Global warming, Capitalism Muslims, extremist Islam. All are highly suspect whenever the source is the BBC.
