The BBC are at it again. Yesterday I noted how the nationality and immigration status of a police killer is newsworthy if the killer’s American but not if he’s Somali.
Here’s the conviction of a bigamist and con-man.
“American William Jordan, 41, who has at least 10 children, wove a web of lies to con his victims, a court heard.”
Mr Jordan is a naturalised British citizen. But apparently he’ll never be British enough for the BBC.
Here’s the conviction of some killers.
“South Londoners Diamond Babamuboni, 17, his brother Timy, 15, and Jude Odigie, 16, were convicted of manslaughter. The four will be sentenced in February.”
The “South Londoners” are Nigerian nationals and illegal immigrants, but that doesn’t get a mention in the BBC report.
Probably just not relevant or newsworthy. After all, it’s not as if foreign criminals are a big news story.
