BBC Watch prompts edit of BBC WS inaccurate location of Israel’s capital

Last week we noted that the synopsis to a BBC World Service radio report on the recent Radiohead concert in Tel Aviv inaccurately described that city as “the Israeli capital”.

After BBC Watch alerted the programme concerned to that inaccuracy, the wording was changed.

However, the edit does not include acknowledgement of the error and – in line with long-standing BBC policy – of course does not bother to inform those who previously read the misleading information that Jerusalem is in fact the capital of Israel.

  1. Why is the British “Government” allowing the BBC to get away with it?

    Could be that the UK has to toe the Islamic line, lest there is a terrorist attack.

    After all, the BBC is now the propaganda wing of the Islamist caliphate and it operates with impunity, spewing out Jewish hate.
