BBC ignoring the pollution caused by IRA fuel crime

It is very odd that BBC NI, in its morning and midday radio shows and TV coverage, seems fixated with loyalist bonfires and their potential for pollution, while ignoring the industrial-scale pollution caused by IRA racketeering in south Armagh.

The BBC seems unaware of the daily dumping of highly-carcinogenic toxic waste from IRA illegal fuel-laundering, which pollutes land and waterways both north and south of the border.

This (and dumping from illegal slaughtering), as well as the huge loss to the Revenue through this activity, deserves at least the same exposure as the bonfires - and yet it doesn't. Why?
