Key submissions deadline nears
The deadline for submissions to the Independent Panel examining BBC TV, radio and web coverage of the Mideast conflict is Friday, November 25 at 5:00 p.m. The panel, led by Sir Quentin Thomas will review submissions and call witnesses (including BBC staff). See here for more info about the panel.
The stakes are certainly high. BBC News Online is one of the 25 most visited web sites in the world. BBC Worldwide can be picked up throughout the world on shortwave radio. And for television, BBC News produces almost 160 hours of news output every hour. Millions of people around the world get info about Israel and the Mideast conflict from the BBC in one form or another.
The panel’s report -- to be released in the spring -- could have a big impact on BBC News. The BBC is funded by a TV license fee, and it’s royal charter expires at the end of 2006, so the Board of Governors may hold it’s news service to unprecedented accountability.

BBC's Kirsty Lang: "What could the Israelis possibly looking for"?
BBC's Kirsty Lang on the opening of the border between Gaza & Egypt, tried so hard to get Mr. Allen Johnston to tell her that there was 'excitement' there.
"Is there celebration there"? She asked.
Well, Let me tell you Mrs. Lang, did you already forget what happened when "Palestinians" git excited?, Do you remember how the BBC so awfully tried to blame the Israeli victim on Arab "Palestinians" rampage, looting and burning down the synagogues at the Gaza give away?
Mrs. Lang bombarded Mr. Allen Johnston on & on with that silly question (after Allen mentioning the fact of Israeli overview monitoring):
"What could the Israelis possibly looking for"?
Gee, what is the entire issue of the M.E., or Global Jihad for that matter, She so naively just doesn't have a clue.
Then again, what am I talking about, since CRIMES of TERRORISM does not exist in BBC lexicon.
