Shameful choice of words

The BBC now describes people who throw bombs at schoolchildren sightseers in the street in Cairo, killing and maiming willy-nilly, as “Islamist militants angry at Egypt's stance over the recent Gaza conflict”. Disgusting is too fine a word to put on this statement. Killing and maiming innocent children obviously means nothing to those who scribble for the BBC. They sadly lack the imagination to feel for others despite the fact that they believe feeling for others is their paramount motivation. Being sublimely aloof and impartial is really all that counts. In all their truly sickening addled piousness they will never know that impartiality in reporting is never to be confused with affording wrong the same rights as right.
