BBC rejects pleas of 50 MPs and 11,000 viewers over broadcast

The BBC will defy the pleas of charities, ministers and 11,000 members of the public today to become the only terrestrial broadcaster not to transmit an appeal to raise aid for Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not know how it works in Great Britain, but here in the US TV stations must document that they are operating in the public interest to renew their licenses.

Clearly, while BBC is operating in Israel's interests, it can be show to be operating contrary to the interests of the public that pays the bills.

As an historical note, newspaper publishers were common targets of the guillotine during the French Revolution.
