Spot On reader Bobby sends along an article from BBC News about a foiled bomb attack in London and British politicians commenting that they need to build bridges with the British Muslim community. Something struck me as kind of odd, though, about the article. If you scroll down, you see a headline in bold ‘Muslim backlash’. The paragraph then goes on to quote Muslim Council Spokesman Inayat Bunglawala speaking of said backlash. The next paragraph is titled ‘Islamophobia’ although the topic of the paragraph is raids carried out by officers with no quotes on ‘Islamaphobia’ by anyone. Is the BBC editorializing or projecting?
