BBC: Caught in the Act
Like America's major media, BBC is state owned and controlled propaganda.
by Stephen Lendman
On February 11, the London Independent headlined, "BBC to issue global apology for documentaries that broke rules," saying:
"....(P)rograms were made by third-party in pay of governments and firms."
In other words, they were propaganda, not legitimate news and information. More on the scandal below.
Throughout its history, BBC's been an imperial tool. It replicates the worst of America's major media, its NPR/PBS managed news operations, and Qatar controlled Al Jazeera on major world and national issues.
Reliability's not its mandate. Owned, operated and controlled by Britain, government officials appoint its management. Nothing fundamentally changed from 1922 inception to today. Only technology's different, not BBC's state controlled message.
It's pro-government, pro-imperial, pro-war, pro-Israel, pro-corporate, and anti-populist. Deception triumphs over truth. Step over the line and get fired.
