One comment on “CAMERA Panel on UK Media, European Antisemitism

  1. Very interesting event. Just watched the video.

    Re complaints, the BBC ‘Complaints’ Website is almost certainly a waste of time and energy. However, over the years I have had a few responses by using this address:

    name.surname@bbc.co.uk

    The responses are mostly unsatisfactory of course, after all this is the BBC we are dealing with, but it’s worth a try. Even when they don’t respond, at least they’ve been made aware of how their propaganda is regarded by some.
