    In what way?
    I saw it being reported this morning on BBC1. Saying the perpetrator was on the police 'watch-list' as he was known to have been radicalised.

    Orly airport: Man killed after seizing soldier's gun - BBC News

    Posted 32 minutes ago as of 18:10. They just seem to wait longer now before releasing their stories.

    That's what I mean by "BBC holding back"

    Unlikely to be terrorism, but unfortunately that is what everyone's first instinct is :(

    Sorry, should have clarified. Heard it at work this morning on radio. Came home and at 5pm hardly anything from BBC on Google.

    They just seem reluctant to report on potential terror attacks until it's confirmed as terror. (Not a conspiracy theory btw :) )

    No, the BBC is lying to you and you can only trust Breitbart

    Reported as a Terror attack or...?

    I'm not saying the BBC don't report anything, I'm just saying they seem to wait until after everyone else reports it is terror, just to clarify. EDIT: or that's just the impression I get :)

    Plus, I trust the BBC more as a source than the Daily Mail etc.

    Feels like another big one in France is just around the corner. At least touch wood we have a measure of control here, better integration and 19 miles of sea

    Why would they report it as a terror attack when it had just happened and the motive wasn't known?

    Because they don't want to be seen as unbiased.

    Guaranteed the Daily Mail, Sun etc were all over this, no? ;)

    Agreed. Despite what some sections of the media like to peddle, the majority of British Muslims are integrated within British society.

    ...surely it would be irresponsible and misleading to describe something as a terror attack before it has been confirmed? Being biased or unbiased as nothing to do with it.

    I'd say the Implication of terrorism was clear in those initial reports by citing that the guy was on a watch list and had made an attempt to injure /kill some other security personnel prior to the soldier.

    The very first reports on the BBC didn't mention that either as it was breaking news.

    The day before this there was a bloke who slit the throats of two people (I think his own family members actually) in broad daylight in quite an affluent neighbourhood in Paris whilst shouting in Arabic.

    It got reported by The Local and some righty rags, but didn't make the BBC or any other MSM whatsoever (at least not until yesterday).

    Looks like it was a family dispute. Why would shouting in Arabic be significant?

    If a bloke was yelling in arabic whilst he murdered two people in broadgate (his family or not), I would have thought people would want to know about it.

    I couldn't really care less if it is a family dispute, it's barbaric. Surely it's more significant the msm choose not to report it over anything else though.

    Yep integrated and importantly largely accepted. The same can't be said of France

    Yes, I'd say that a majority of Immigrants have integrated and that's all good.

    But on the other hand, there's a portion which haven't and that causes problems and some people to resent Immigrants.

    There's also a percentage of white British people who haven't integrated and act out racist crimes.

    It needs all sides to integrate, not just foreigners, to have a happy society. Just my opinion.

    I guess, but everyone needs to integrate to get along.

    Basically, if people could stop being dicks to each other....

    Oh come on.....the largest terrorist organisations and the greatest terrorist threat to western society is from daesh and people of that ilk and have a guess what language they speak? have a guess what they shout whilst murdering innocent men, women and children?

    If something was shouted in Arabic by a person whilst chopping the heads of people in the street, I think it should be reported as such, being that it is factually correct.

    You're right...but the BBC try hard to maintain a reasonably neutral/unbiased stance.
    They must do a good job too because they are so widely condemned by political people of all shades
