Sophie Long is a BBC TV journalist/ News Anchor.
In September 2011, BICOM, the pro-Israeli lobbying group in the UK, sent out an email boasting about the UK media/journalists it managed to influence or who were well-disposed to its suggestions. The email was meant for BICOM's backers and funders, but instead this email was sent out to a long list of journalists. In this email, Lorna Fitzsimons states:
- Bicom has one of BBC News' key anchors on a bespoke delegation. When planning her very first trip to the region, Sophie Long got in touch with Bicom to see if we could help her out with meeting in the region. Sophie is now spending three days of her trip with Bicom Israel, taking a tour around the Old City, meeting [Israeli government spokesman] Mark Regev...as well as visiting Ramallah and Sderot.
