al-Beeb: Biased beyond redemption

From the BBC:

A man has appeared in court accused of preparing acts of terrorism in his home town in South Yorkshire.

Nicholas Roddis, of Reedham Drive, Bramley, Rotherham, appeared at London's Old Bailey on Friday by video link from custody.

The 22-year-old was remanded in custody for a plea and case management hearing on 21 November.

At his next court appearance, the charge of preparing acts of terrorism will be put to him.

Another Robert Cottage, perhaps?

Well, no, actually. Because al-Beeb appears to have left out a rather salient detail regarding Mr Roddis. Thankfully, other, more reputable, news outlets were not quite so reticent. Here's the South Yorkshire local paper, The Star:
A WHITE Muslim convert has appeared in court accused of plotting to bomb his hometown of Rotherham.

Nicholas Roddis, aged 22, allegedly kept a list for attacking Rotherham, along with chemicals for making explosives and bomb-making recipes.

Counter terrorism police claim he also kept extremist propaganda including beheadings at his then home during a two-and-a-half year period.
This is not the first time that the BBC has deliberately misled licence fee payers in this manner. Some readers may have come across the Wroughton Hammer Attack case, in which a white schoolboy was subjected to a racist assault by a large gang of Pakistani thugs. Mysteriously, al-Beeb omitted to make any reference whatsoever to the case's racial aspect, only reporting the fact that an assault had taken place.

The BBC is supposed to be an impartial news organisation. Indeed, as the price for its guaranteed licence fee income, it has a positive obligation to be impartial imposed on it by its charter. However, it now has a liberal bias so deeply ingrained, that it is actively misrepresenting the facts that it reports, in order to avoid doing harm to its liberal agenda. The bias now goes so far, that it is too late to talk about reforming the corporation: the only solution is to close it down.

Hat-tip: Biased BBC
