The NUJ today joined with broadcasting union BECTU to add to the chorus of condemnation of the BBC for refusing to run a charity appeal for the victims of the war in Gaza on the grounds it would compromise the Corporation's news impartiality.
NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear has written, with his counterpart at BECTU, to BBC Director General Mark Thompson claiming there is a danger the BBC will be seen as "biased in favour of Israel" and asking him to reconsider the ban.
