I managed to catch up with the BBC's Dateline LOndon programme last night and what a farce that was?
The panel was made up of four reporters and a compere who were all of the same mind about the conflict between Israel and Hamas. The Israelis were the villains and Hamas are almost as pure as the driven snow.

One of the reporters, a Sudanese, couldn't help trotting out lie after lie including the doozy about assassinated Hamas monster Jabril being on the verge of agreeing to a "peace" deal with Israel. She clearly comes from the Joseph Goebells School of Journalism and the rest of the panel were no better because none of them challenged her outrageous lies.

Needless to say, the war crimes of the Sudanese government and its decades-long campaign of genocide against its southern minorities was left unmentioned by the journalist/propagandist on the panel.

As an exercise in groupthink and stupidity it rated first class.

Otherwise, it stunk.
