BBC propaganda


What's wrong with Auntie?

The BBC, it's a job to know where to start. People fresh to taking a look at the corporation as opposed to their programmes can be forgiven for thinking that the present critical mood is all down to the headline problems. Oh no, that would be wrong! Yes it's true that the Jimmy Savile revelations along with the '28 gates' , see HERE and other scandals are the centre of attention. But there's far more to it than just this and it goes much further back than the time Savile worked for the BBC. An organisation is, especially so in the case of the BBC, defined by its people. Those who work for the BBC want to do so, they do not arrive by accident. Also they tend to stay working for the BBC. Few people are sacked and it absorbs them while in return they become the BBC.

The BBC is a bit like the Vatican, surrounded by Italy but deemed fully independent. The BBC, the state broadcaster, is surrounded by the state that keeps it alive and upon which it is dependent but regards itself as wholly free from it. The relationship has nothing to do with allegiance or with responsibility to the people of the state.

Bad propaganda

Ed Stourton has a series on climate change where he proves 'incontrovertibly' that the world is warming, see here. The programme tells us that peer review gives us sound evidence (no mention of those e-mails!); that Al Gore has provided beyond doubt that global warming exists (no mention of that court case) and that Hurricane Katrina was caused by climate change(no mention of those levées). Several neo-con, big oil Texan types are then interviewed who refute the science, proving that climate sceptics are a bad lot.

Anthony Watts then shows us a video experiment by a 'top' space scientist which proves beyond doubt that CO2 causes global warming! The 'experiment' proves how heating an unknown additional quantity of CO2 and ordinary air inside a bottle and comparing this to a heated bottle containing ordinary air scientifically demonstrates that CO2 causes global warming!!!
