Biased BBC notes a couple of complaints about the BBC’s coverage of the end of Operation Banner, in particular, Jeremy Vine, for playing anti British rebel song on his feature yesterday. In itself, inconclusive of bias. But it also carries a complaint a guy on AARSE (I kid you not) that:
I was watching the BBC World Service this morning and was dismayed by their coverage marking the end of Op Banner which focused on the account of a Sinn Fein spokesman who essentially portrayed the British Army as cold blooded murderers. In the clip I saw there were no other representatives interviewed nor ordinary NI citizens asked for their opinions.
