Language Creep as BBC Discuss Chemical Weapons in Syria
|BBC News - 6 May 2013||
The BBC, reporting on the various suggestions that the rebels or regime have used chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war, report incorrectly that 'evidence that government forces have used chemical weapons' has been found by western governments. In reality, what western governments have found, according to David Cameron, is 'limited, but growing' evidence - clearly not conclusive evidence.
Such reporting can easily mislead readers - a correct report may have referred to evidence that government forces may have used chemical weapons.
In recent weeks, Western powers have said their own investigations have found evidence that government forces have used chemical weapons.
