BBC ‘Fixes’ Munich Killer Article Following Breitbart Expose Of Muslim Name Cover Up

bbcson
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has corrected its coverage of Munich killer Ali David Sonbaly following a Breitbart London expose of how the global media giant was attempting to hide the murderers Muslim name. Despite sources outwardly rejecting any link to radical Islam, the BBC still felt it necessary, in isolation, to scrub any reference to the name “Ali” in the killer’s name. The organisation chose to report his name as “David Sonbaly” on social media, on broadcast TV, and in its online coverage. After Breitbart London reported the news, which subsequently featured on the powerful news aggregation site the Drudge Report, the BBC began to quietly alter its coverage. The chyron on its broadcast news segments was quickly changed to add in “Ali”, and the original article was edited to include the name as his middle name. The BBC also added the line: “He has also been referred to as Ali David Sonboly, or David S.”. The BBC has now changed its article following my expose of their attempted cover up: https://t.co/GEj73KjxeB pic.twitter.com/58vI5DozA9 — Raheem Kassam (@RaheemKassam) July 23, 2016 Despite the alteration, the BBC has still not responded to a Breitbart London request for comment on the story.
