The Wicked BBC

Many readers may by now have heard of a private video produced by BBC staff that has attracted a lot of flak:

"The BBC has come under fire for allowing its senior journalists to make a spoof video which makes fun of war in the Middle East...

it features BBC staff singing and dancing in front of images of missiles being fired and tanks rolling across the Arabian desert.

It also contains crass Arab stereotypes and makes joking reference to Osama Bin Laden, the Palestinian conflict.

The video has been condemned by an Arab rights group as 'insenstive and puerile', as well as being potentially offensive to Muslims.


I think it is rather refreshing to see that not all BBC staff members accept the BBC's usual pro-Muslim stance.

You can watch the actual video via the link given above.
