I’d drive my nana to visit her family in the next village which was only 9 minutes drive away. With no cars at the turn of the century, she was called “the foreigner” and wrote a ton of nostalgic songs that she sang while kneading every morning.

Beeley has justified the use of incendiary weapons against civilians, recycled and championed debunked conspiracy theories, and described a meeting with Assad as her proudest moment. This is cheerleading, not reporting.

And incidentally, , if you want to debate the facts pertaining to Brexit and the NHS, please invite me onto your show to do so, rather than making ad hominem attacks on my profession.

I've been going through BBC News coverage of Yemen, the world's worst humanitarian crisis. Almost no article mentions Britain is arming Saudi Arabia to the teeth as it obliterates Yemen. This is deception by omission.

أكبر إهانة لمي اسكاف ولنضالها ولإرثها إنه تختزلوها بتصنيف ديني أو طائفي غبي. ثائرة سورية، هاي هويتها. والأقلية الوحيدة اللي بنتميلها مي هي أقلية المتشبثات بالأمل رغم كل البؤس اللي إحنا فيه.

I have had more than one male colleague sincerely ask whether a certain behavior is mansplaining. Since apparently this is hard to figure out, I made one of them a chart.
