UK: Jewish leaders challenge BBC over 'misleading headlines' in Israel coverage

Via Jewish Chronicle:
The Board of Deputies has raised concerns with the BBC over “misleading headlines” in the its coverage of attacks in Israel.

A delegation from the Board met BBC’s Head of News James Harding this week to discuss the Jewish community’s concerns about the reporting of the recent upsurge of violence in Israel.

In a statement following the meeting, Board president Jonathan Arkush said: “We raised strong concerns about misleading headlines in reports about attacks in Israel, the lack of reports about a large number of attacks and an almost total lack of reporting about incitement and corruption in the Palestinian Authority.

“We conveyed to Mr Harding fully and clearly the feeling within the Jewish community about these matters. The BBC said they were open to dialogue and we intend to pursue the conversation with the BBC on a regular basis.”
