Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
I am incensed with the lack of coverage of the "Rolling Thunder" protest against the treatment of soldier f on Friday 12th April and would like to know if the BBC had any reporting restrictions imposed. Why was the few thousand enviromentalist protest 5 days later reported in the BBC but the much larger peaceful 22000 for Rolling Thunder was not?
If no reporting restrictions were imposed then who made the decision to report one but not the other and why? You are not supposed to show political bias.
