Can't do better than adopt the BBC's approach to promote something truly hideous

Over at BBC Watch, they posted an insightful article yesterday entitled "BBC’s Knell reports on prisoner release without mentioning their crimes".

It starts with this question:

What are the millions of viewers of BBC television news being told about the recent early release of 26 men convicted of murder, attempted murder or accessory to murder? This filmed report by the BBC Jerusalem bureau’s Yolande Knell was broadcast on BBC television news as well as appearing on the Middle East page of the BBC News website.
The question gets answered by a review of what the BBC's witless presenter does to frame the indefensible - the walking-free of 26 murderers long before they have served their sentences and long before they or their society have acknowledged the horror of the offences that put them behind bars.

Confronted with the challenge of explaining to a worldwide audience how unrepentant terrorists can be received into the arms and adulation of a society that simply adores the killing and murdering they do, and that includes their political leadership, the BBC's on-the-spot correspondent engages in reporting of part-facts, non-facts and un-facts.
