# 349 - WAR - Bias by omission.

Last week the BBC happily reported that Edward Snowden's laptop, on which his stolen file had been stored by the Guardian, was going on show in the Victoria and Albert museum. The BBC also devoted some airtime to Snowden's unsurprising 'news' that Britain spied on Argentina after the Falklands war.

However on the far more news worthy story that Snowden had NOT read many of the files he carelessly released, an act which put peoples lives at risk, the BBC did not mention this or have it on it's website.

But then it is hardly surprising as the BBC buys more copies of the Guardian than any other newspaper.

The BBC of course has a build in left-wing metropolitan bias.
