Here is the recent blogpost from Robert Stuart concering Syria and BBC distortion

BBC cheek by jowl with ISIS: email to Emily Thornberry MP

Subject: BBC cheek by jowl with ISIS
Dear Emily
I was disappointed by your response to my concerns about BBC reporter Ian Pannell and cameraman Darren Conway’s having apparently entered into a business relationship with al-Qaeda and ISIS linked jihadi group Ahrar al-Sham during the production of the 2013 Panorama special Saving Syria’s Children.
I felt that Jeremy Hayes’ reply to you evaded this matter by diverting into separate concerns I have previously raised with the BBC over this programme.
In the absence of your support, I have reported Pannell and Conway to the National Counter Terrorism Security Office.
I now wish to make you aware of evidence that Pannell and Conway were working in close proximity to members of ISIS during the filming of Saving Syria’s Children.
As detailed here, an ambulance plainly displaying the ISIS flag was among vehicles which transported the alleged victims of an alleged incendiary attack to Atareb Hospital, Aleppo on 26 August 2013. The ambulance and two militarily attired and armed occupants were filmed at close quarters by Conway.

The ambulance was carrying a female alleged victim of the alleged incendiary attack. Conway filmed this woman being transported from the rear of the vehicle by five men, including the two men in combat fatigues who had travelled with her.
One of the “stars” of Saving Syria’s Children, Dr Saleyha Ahsan (who has more recently presented the BBC series “Trust Me I’m a Doctor”), has stated on Twitter that she carried the woman through the hospital. If so, this would appear to indicate that Dr Ahsan was in direct contact with the ISIS militants.
There are clearly very many troubling questions surrounding Saving Syria’s Children. How did Pannell and Conway come to be cheek by jowl, not only with al-Qaeda linked jihadis Ahrar al-Sham, but also with ISIS? Were western government agencies involved in the programme’s production and funding? If so, to what end? Were all the scenes transmitted genuine?
Award-winning US online magazine Paste has described Saving Syria’s Children as “a sham”. Tellingly, despite being informed of this the BBC has not, to my knowledge, chosen to pursue legal action against the publication.
A public enquiry into Saving Syria’s Children is now essential.
Yours sincerely,
Robert Stuart

More info on BBC fake videos

Please see this latest email from Robert Stuart in which he gives more info on the notorious false BBC videos purportedly filmed in Syria.

Scenes filmed by BBC cameraman Darren Conway for the 2013 Panorama special Saving Syria�s Children purporting to show incendiary bomb victims arriving at an Aleppo hospital feature an ambulance displaying the ISIS flag.

The proximity of Conway and Panorama reporter Ian Pannell to the ISIS vehicle and its armed occupants at Atareb Hospital on 26 August 2013 contrasts markedly with an ostensibly tense scene shot the previous day in which the two-man BBC team pass through an ISIS checkpoint in apparent fear for their lives.

BBC fabrication of alleged Syria events

This item concerning Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry and the BBC's connection to Islamic extremists is interesting.
