BBC MID EAST EDITOR JOYFUL OVER ISRAEL-US RIFT…….

CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Jermey Bowen: I couldn’t be any happier about it!

BBC Mid-East Editor: ‘It has been an unusual and enjoyable new experience to be able to look on as the Israelis argued with their most important ally. The fact that the dispute is over Jewish settlements is even better for the Palestinian [sic].’
Oh but wait, after Just Journalism caught him in the act of being overtly “candid” about his bias, the hack journo then qualifies his statement in the following way:
“UPDATE: Jeremy Bowen responded to our report via email, saying that there was a ‘glitch in [his] editing process’ and that when calling a chill in U.S.-Israeli relations ‘enjoyable’ he had meant to attribute this view to the Palestinians. The article was subsequently amended on the BBC News website but no acknowledgement of an error was made.”
