BBC Proselytises For The Pope
Yesterday the Pope made a series of disgraceful excuses for paedophile priests.
Today, the BBC announced that it is to broadcast a Christmas message from him for the first time. This after earlier in the year it granted him extravagant and disproportionate coverage of his vist to Britain.
In a statement the Pope said that he wanted to thank the BBC for its coverage of his visit. I bet he does. For a religious cult that has less than a million regular supporters in Britain he was given saturation coverage on all BBC television and radio for four days.
Mark Thompson, director-general of the BBC is, of course, a hard core Catholic. Surely he has gone too far this time?
What should be happening is that BBC journalists should be probing ever deeper into the disgusting cover up of child abuse that the Pope is responsible for. They should also be tearing apart the sordid and corrupt financial affairs of the Vatican.
Mark Thompson has to go. This is gross misconduct.
