    Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Radio Newcastle, died at the age of 44 in May after developing headaches a week after getting her first dose of the vaccine. Newcastle coroner Karen Dilks heard Ms Shaw suffered blood clots in the brain which ultimately led to her death. The inquest heard the condition linked to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine was very rare. Ms Dilks said Ms Shaw was previously fit and well but concluded that it was "clearly established" that her death was due to a very rare "vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia", a condition which leads to swelling and bleeding of the...

    A group of demonstrators occupied the entrance of the headquarters of ITV News and Channel 4 News in London, claiming that the media are misinforming people about vaccines and the pandemic. Police were called to the ITN production studios in central London on Aug. 23, according to the Met Police, after a group “unlawfully gained access to the building.” Two hours later the protesters had left, according to police. Estimates suggest there were about 100 people in the group. They appear to be part of a larger group of protesters in the area. Less than a mile away, other protesters...

    President Joe Biden has said he stands "squarely" behind the US exit from Afghanistan as he faces withering criticism over the Taliban's lightning conquest of the war-torn country. "How many more American lives is it worth?" asked the Democratic president. He said that despite the "messy" pullout, "there was never a good time to withdraw US forces". ... Kabul was the last major city in Afghanistan to fall to a Taliban offensive that began months ago but accelerated in recent days as they gained control of territories, shocking many observers. Mr Biden returned on Monday to the White House from...

    An Afghan-born BBC anchor received a startling call from a Taliban spokesman while she was reporting live on air after the extremist group toppled the government. Yalda Hakim kept her poise when Suhail Shaheen dialed her mobile phone while she was conducting an interview, according to the Sun. She quickly switched gears, transferred Shaheen to a loudspeaker and peppered the rep with questions as the Taliban declared victory in Kabul 20 years after being removed from power by US-led forces. “OK, we have got the Taliban’s spokesperson Shail Shaheen on the line. Mr. Shaheen, can you hear me?” the Australian...

    It is simply dizzying the speed at which events are unfolding – earlier this week US officials were cautioning that it would be months before Kabul might fall. It’s turned out to be days. And now, for all the diplomatic window dressing, this is turning into a scramble by the Americans to get out. Officials at the embassy were told to destroy sensitive documents, helicopters are ferrying staff to the airport. The Ambassador has left, the US flag lowered. And it’s left the Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, trying to put a brave face on events. Arguments can be made...
  • BBC did NOT screen live coverage of trans weightlifter Laurel Hubbard after warning it would report viewers who questioned her right to compete as a woman to 'authorities'

    The BBC did not broadcast live coverage of transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard’s event at the Tokyo Olympics after it warned that it would report viewers who questioned her right to compete as a woman to “the relevant authorities”. The British broadcaster did not air the women’s weightlifting on Day 10 of the Games live, when the transgender New Zealand athlete crashed out of the 87 kg+ category after failing to record a single valid “snatch” lift, and showed eventing, showjumping and athletics instead. It also did not broadcast US gymnast Simone Biles’ bronze-medal winning routine live on BBC1 this morning...

    This is the awkward moment a BBC reporter confuses disgraced comedian Bill Cosby for Bill Clinton live on air. Journalist Michelle Fleury was reporting on the entertainer's shock prison release - but accidentally referred the former US President instead. The huge gaffe forced top BBC News presenter Huw Edwards to apologise to viewers for the blunder.

    A BBC investigation into unaccompanied minor detention centers in Texas revealed alarming conditions under the Biden Administration. The BBC reports migrant children are exposed to disease, dangerous food, and sexual abuse while in confinement. As the flood of unaccompanied migrant children mounted through the spring, the Biden Administration quickly put up detention centers in multiple locations. The BBC reports the migrant children, mostly from Central America, face “heartbreaking” living conditions. Findings by the BBC from interviews with staff and migrant children revealed allegations of sexual abuse, COVID-19 and lice outbreaks, long waits for medical attention, a lack of clean clothes,...

    Traitor!.. A video clip shows BBC political editor Nicholas Watt being chased down and confronted by anti-lockdown protesters outside Downing Street. Protests are once again growing after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced yet another delay to the lifting of the UK’s lockdown restrictions. As we highlighted yesterday, the public was already being prepared for an extension to the extension before the first extension was even announced. Demonstrators are once again gathering around Downing Street and the Houses of Parliament in London to express their fury. BBC Newsnight editor Nicholas Watt was caught in the crossfire of their ire as he...

    President Biden and first lady Jill Biden kicked out the British media — to get the pub garden table they wanted, video shows. Jon Sopel, the BBC’s North America editor, had been sitting on the patio of Treganna Castle in Cornwall on Thursday when he was seemingly surprised by the unexpected arrival of the commander-in-chief and his wife. “A first in my career. @POTUS comes and sits down at table in a bar next to me and orders a drink. Am trying to act nonchalant,” he tweeted alongside video of him shouting out, “How’s it going, Mr. President? Are you...

    Both the BBC and CNN have reporters who seemed to sing the praises of the Führer. That’s messed up....However, we have got to be crystal clear about how perverse this situation is. Both the BBC and CNN, the self-styled moral consciences of the West’s right-thinking set, had reporters who relatively recently, or very recently, expressed support for Hitler. Just think about that. This should alarm us. It should alert us to how mainstream anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Zionism has become. What is most striking is the relative lack of fuss and fury these cases have generated. Yes, there has been a...

    An award-winning BBC radio presenter died in hospital after suffering blood clots after she received the AstraZeneca vaccine, her family have revealed. Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Newcastle, developed 'severe' headaches a week after having the jab and fell seriously ill a few days later, relatives said in a statement. Ms Shaw, 44, died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday afternoon having been treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding. A fact-of-death certificate lists the vaccine as one of the possible factors, but document does not determine a cause of death. It is expected that...

    Yesterday afternoon, the phrase #FireMeghanMcCain was trending on Twitter. What terrible, awful thing had she said to warrant trending on Twitter? The co-host of the View had done something few others have: decried an alarming spike in anti-Semitism. It’s not surprising, if you’re familiar with Twitter, to see how an outspoken defender of the Jewish people may find herself in its crosshairs. This is a place where variations of the phrase “Hitler was right” were posted more than 17,000 times (according to the Anti-Defamation League) in just a one-week span in May. As in-person violence against Jews has spiked, so...

    A ‘Palestinian Specialist’ for the BBC has been revealed to have said that “Hitler was right” and compared the Jewish state of Israel to Nazi Germany. The BBC has launched an investigation after one of its digital journalists, Tala Halawa, was reported to have posted on her social media in 2014 that “Israel is more Nazi than Hitler! Oh, #HitlerWasRight – IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) go to hell #PrayForGaza.” The post was uncovered by Honest Reporting, an NGO which claimes to seek to counteract media bias against Israel. The report also revealed that Halawa also said that “Zionists can’t get...
