Orla Update - Causing A Stir!

Someone posting at a Times Educational Supplement forum has linked to my post about Orla Guerin. One commenter, tamnat5, who says her husband (Mr TN) is a BBC journalist, reports (21st post in the thread, 10:18 this morning):
Mr TN has just told me that the Orla Guerin piece has caused a stir within editorial meetings. Another headache for them all to deal with! I doubt you will have seen it on their audio/video cuttings!
I’m not entirely sure what the last line means, but the rest of it is clear enough.

Someone posted a link to your blog on a BBC Message Board (on a thread about Orla). The message has been removed but not until several people had seen it and followed the link.

Keep up the good work.

I'm not sure the BBC will be too bothered. Back in May, recall, the Governors' Report found evidence of bias in their Middle Eastern reporting - bias in favour of the Israeli side!!

I agree Mr E. They'll rally round her and fob off any criticisms, as per usual.

I was disgusted with her report, and felt she was one of the reporters under Hisbollah.

'Orla's piece caused a stir'. Well, honestly, why do the BBC let her go out there? Trusting that silly bitch not to screw up when Israelis are involved is about as smart as trusting a rabbit to do lettuce deliveries.

DFH, keep up the good investigative journalism. Orla, you should be ashamed of yourself -you are a liar. You are an under-cover agent for Hizbollah and an ugly one at that!

I know OFCOM can be complained to for offence language et. al., can we also lodge complaints about bias reporting, misrepresentation, or institutionalised bias?

Anonymous 5:39pm - I just surfed the OFCOM Web site with a view to making a complaint about the rancid harridan (as I've already done to al-Beeb).

Their Web site says: "However, we cannot consider complaints about accuracy in BBC TV and radio news or complaints about impartiality in BBC TV and radio programmes. These complaints have to be dealt with by the BBC." useful as a chocolate teapot.

I have also officially complained to the BBC, they say only 11 complaints have been received. Maybe they left some noughts out. She was sent to Africa after her last outpouring why did they get her back??
