BBC: Imperial US and UK Tool - by Stephen Lendman
One blogger put it this way:
"Let me get this straight. The US is broke, borrowing money from China, and we will be funding the BBC to broadcast in China?"
On March 20, the London Guardian's Ben Dowell broke the news, headlining, "BBC World Service to sign funding deal with US State Department," saying:
Britain's government funded BBC will "receive a 'significant" sum of money from the US government to help (circumvent) the blocking of TV and internet services in countries including Iran and China," as well as develop early warning software to more easily detect jamming.
According to Jim Egan, BBC's controller of strategy and business:
Effective software will help "monitor dips in traffic which act as an early warning of jamming, and can be more effective than relying on people contacting us and telling us they cannot access the services."
Proxy servers will also be used to misdirect web site blockers to countries other than where broadcasts emanate.
