Sky News joins BBC in refusal to broadcast Gaza charity fundraising appeal
Executives at the British-based news channel announced the decision Monday after a weekend in which rival BBC faced numerous protests for its decision not to air the appeal.
Protesters say the humanitarian appeal must be shown to help Palestinians in desperate need after the recent heavy fighting in Gaza. Broadcasters worry they will be seen as taking sides in the conflict if they show it.
Jeremy Corbyn, a governing Labour Party lawmaker, said he and many other legislators will demand that the appeal be broadcast when they meet Tuesday with BBC executives.
