BBC News admits to falling for fake Muhammad cartoon

In A clash of rights and responsibilities, by the BBC News website World Affairs correspondent Paul Reynolds, one can read the following.

Twelve cartoons were originally published by Jyllands-Posten. None showed the Prophet with the face of a pig. Yet such a portrayal has circulated in the Middle East (The BBC was caught out and for a time showed film of this in Gaza without realizing it was not one of the 12).

I believe the above statement is the first in which BBC News admits to falling for one of the fake Muhammad cartoons, considerably more offensive than Jyllands-Posten’s original 12, distributed around Muslim countries in an attempt to stir up even more hate.

About time too. Is Paul Reynolds the only person at the BBC who reads blogs?

Grumpy Troll, are you really 15? If so I applaud you sir! Not very many people your age show such an ability to see through MSM cr*p!

bc10, thank you for your comment. I am indeed really 15 and must admit that laying bare BBC bias is a somewhat satisfactory activity. I believe that most people my age are not alarmed by bias in the mainstream media, alas; they are probably those most affected by it.
