BBC narrative on ‘homegrown’ Boston bombers falls apart

During this morning, NBC News in America has been reporting that the suspects in the Boston Marathon twin bomb attacks are brothers of Chechen origin.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, born in Kyrgyzstan remains on the run while his brother who was killed in a shoot out with police is being named as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, born in Russia.   Sky News has also been carrying this information, along with news media around the world.

Meanwhile (at the time of writing) on the BBC, despite the time that has elapsed there is still no mention of the names or nationality of the bombing suspects.

Having pushed so hard the idea of ‘homegrown terrorism’ by Americans on American soil, by people who presumably hate the United States as much as the BBC does, it is as if the BBC cannot now bring itself to acknowledge and report that the authorities have identified the main suspects as foreign nationals who originate from a region well known for its Islamist fundamentalism and terrorism.

Of course the BBC will likely say they were waiting for more confirmation in order to be ‘accurate’ in their reporting, rather than first with the story.  But once again, on a major issue where the BBC has form for grudging reporting of the facts, they seem to be last to the party when the story fails to validate what their worldview expected it to be.

The BBC is becoming concerned with news and more concerned with agenda setting and propaganda.

(Update: Shortly after this post, the BBC has updated their news page with the details, well behind the other news media.  Anyone relying on the BBC for information spent more time this morning being less informed than users of other outlets.)

    goodness… really?

    Hopefully – one of these days they’re going to overstep the mark so comprehensively that the entire population will spontaneously stop paying telly tax and actively seek to avoid any BBC originated content.

    Does anybody know if the Sun sells at all on Merseyside?

    BBC news – socialist propaganda. Not worth watching. Much of their drama output is similarly slanted,

    Good. What do the Brits know? Nothing.

    nOnjy, whatever you do, don’t go thinking that the BBC is representative of British (especially English) people. They represent the middle class metro “liberal”, social “democratic” culturally Marxist ruling classes who have been taking over the developed world for the last few decades – ruling classes who have nothing in common with the average person in the real world.

    I didn’t think for one minute that it was a repeat of the OKC bombing of a few years back. My money was always on Muslims being behind it, and I suspect most people in the Divided Kingdom and the rest of Europe and most other places had the same hunch.

    I suspect most people at the BBC had the same hunch, but didn’t dare say so, because it would go against their left-wing agenda.
