BBC editor tells staff to be soft on Israel

The Electronic Intifada today published a shocking report exposing the extent to which Israeli propagandists have penetrated the BBC, Britain’s state broadcaster.

According to the report, Raffi Berg, the editor of the BBC News website’s Middle East section, has been sending his staff emails advising them to write more favourably about Israel.

Berg was promoted to his current position earlier in August, having already worked as a journalist on the Middle East desk.

He replaces Tarik Kafala, who has moved over to head the BBC’s Arabic Service.
