From 2001-2006, Trevor Asserson , a leading British litigation lawyer, has undertaken six well-documented studies detailing the BBC’s systematic bias against Israel.
He states: “The BBC’s coverage of the Middle East is infected by an apparent widespread antipathy toward Israel. This distorted media reporting creates an atmosphere in which anti-Semitism can thrive. I felt the BBC should be analyzed because its significant influence on public opinion is combined with a unique obligation to produce ‘impartial’ news.”
"It's news reports concerning Israel are distorted by omission, by inclusion, by only giving partial facts, by who is interviewed, and by the background information provided, or lack of it. I also found that there is a systemic problem with the BBC complaints system.
