CUFI calls for an independent inquiry into BBC anti-Israel bias and demands the release of the unpublished internal 2004 Balen Report into anti-Israel bias in their coverage.
The bias in the BBC’s coverage of the Israel-Hamas war is contributing to anti-Israel sentiment in the UK and this in turn has caused a spike in antisemitic incidents targeting British Jews. The BBC’s complicity in anti-Israel propaganda is also having an impact internationally, and as British public broadcaster they should be held to account.
Please help CUFI tackle the appalling BBC bias against Israel. Using our suggested wording and automated form, we invite you to contact your MP, asking them to demand higher standards of reporting of this conflict. Our letter asks the BBC to review their editorial guidelines and calls for a wider backbench debate on the BBC and BBC Arabic’s bias against Israel. It also asks your MP to call for an independent inquiry into BBC anti-Israel bias and to finally release the unpublished internal 2004 Balen Report into anti-Israel bias in their coverage.
