Millions globally follow BBC reports regularly. Most perhaps don't know they get propaganda, not real news, commentary and opinion. Notoriously one-sided, imbalanced, and biased accounts are featured. It's standard fare.

Anyone paying attention can spot it. Western interests alone are represented. Viewers and listeners get one side only. BBC does what it's told. It's government funded, operated and controlled. It's Britain's official voice. It pretends to be independent and impartial.

It denies Palestine is occupied. It claims Israel's capital is Jerusalem. In 1947, the UN designated it an international city. It remains so to this day. American and UK embassies are in Tel Aviv. So are most others.

In profiling Palestinian territories, the word occupation is omitted. Nothing explains daily reality or how mass slaughter, destruction, and ethnic cleansing created Israel. BBC says its content informs. It doesn't mislead. Claiming it is laughable on its face.

Instead of condemning criminality, it defends it. Its justification is none at all. It reports spurious propaganda globally. Millions aren't told they're lied to. Misinformation and illusion substitute for reality. Viewers and listeners are betrayed.

What's more important than war or peace? When Britain and America wage wars or plan them, BBC marches in lockstep. It's no different from America's scoundrel media. 

NPR and PBS are called public to conceal their real agenda. Critics ridicule NPR as National Pentagon or Petroleum Radio for good reason. It's true as well for PBS. Calling it Propaganda Public Broadcasting more accurately describes it.

Nation magazine and publications like it fall far short of their mandates. Some get funding from corporate and other disreputable sources they should condemn.
