Activists have taken it upon themselves to show some of the BBC’s most senior presenters the reality of the situation on the ground in Palestine.

Activists Help Mainstream Media Understand the Reality in Palestine

As a result of the broadcasting company’s persistent, biased, and misleading reporting on the situation in Palestine and Israel, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign has decided to surprise Broadcasting House with a delivery of mugs printed with maps showing how much land Palestine has lost to Israel since 1948.

Among those set to receive the gifts are James Harding, the BBC’s Director of News and Current Affairs, Evan Davis, presenter of Newsnight, Today presenters John Humphrys, Mishal Husain, Sarah Montague, and James Naughtie, and News at Ten anchors Fiona Bruce and Huw Edwards. In case of confusion, the presenters will also receive an accompanying letter reminding them who is the occupier and who is the occupied, according to the U.K. campaign group.

The renowned broadcaster’s offices in London have been the scene of regular demonstrations by activists who accuse the BBC of a pro-Israel bias and reporting that is persistently devoid of context.

On the Today radio programme last week, not only did presenter John Humphrys imply that the 50 people killed since the beginning of the month were all Israelis, Middle East correspondent Kevin Connolly said “it was impossible to guess at the motives of the Palestinians who had stabbed Israelis.”
