BBC man's chutzpa

The definition of unmitigated chutzpa: Danny Cohen, a senior BBC executive saying he is "uncomfortable" being a Jew in Britain when the BBC itself (closely followed by The Guardian) is the main purveyor of biased, anti-Israel reportage.

When Dame Jenny Abramsky (granddaughter of the Slutzer Rov, the Chazon Yeheskel, later a senior dayan in London) was head of news and current affairs, the BBC's coverage of Israel became an absolute disgrace to journalism.

Her zeide must have been spinning in his grave. What is Mr Cohen going to do about this? He can release the Balen report for a start.
