Four Days After UN Report, BBC Still Blaming Israel for Death of Gaza Child

avatar by Hadar Sela

The BBC is still promoting its story about Omar Masharawi on its website four days after the publication of a UN HRC report which determines that the infant died as a result of the shortfall of a missile fired by terrorists in the Gaza Strip rather than due to an IDF attack in the vicinity as the BBC claimed.

This failure by the BBC to acknowledge the problematic nature of that report even in light of the findings of the UN is particularly significant in light of the fact that in other circumstances, the BBC frequently relates to UN statements as something akin to semi-sacred.

The BBC’s dragging of heels on this issue and its failure to admit to the funding public that it published and widely promoted a story without having solid evidence for the main claim upon which it was based of course casts very serious doubts upon the sincerity of the corporation’s claims of commitment to accuracy and impartiality.
