Channel Four, producers of the "investigative" programme Dispatches has been reported to the industry regulator, Ofcom, by the West Midlands [county in England] police for undermining community cohesion by misreporting the words of a Muslim preacher at the Birmingham Green Lane mosque.
The preacher, an American Muslim, Abu Usamah, is reported by C4 as having made several racist and homophobic remarks. These, Abu Usamah says, were all taken out of context and, after examining over 50 hours of footage, the police decided to support his claims.
Predictably, C4 deny everything. They would.
Yet, outside of the bubble of media unreality, C4 has a record of supporting both the war-mongering policies of the Anglo-Saxon Alliance and of producing programmes which are clearly meant to demonize both Islam and the British Muslim community. The Dispatches programme has played such a leading role in this as to lead me to believe that it is being used as a willing and regular conduit for the British and American secret services in their media propaganda war of disinformation.
Dispatches has played a leading role in producing an endless stream of disinformation about the phony 'War on Terror.' Whilst pretending to represent community interests both it and Channel Four have played a major part in promoting British government war crimes and in surreptitiously attempting to cause unrest in British communities.
It is not Ofcom that they should answer to, it is the War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague. While the time for that has not yet come, let's hope that Ofcom has the courage to uphold the police complaints and to hammer C4 mercilessly where it most hurts them, financially.
It is the only language that the gutter press understands.
