Abstract

The BBC children’s news programme Newsround has come under attack from former Spymaster and now Tory politician, Dame Pauline Neville Jones. On their website Newsround were reluctant to use the word ‘terrorist’ to describe Al Qeada. They also implied that the attack on New York in 2001 was motivated by US foreign policy in the Middle East. I have some sympathy with Dame Pauline but it is obvious that she is making political hay during the conference season.
