If the package together with the version of the interview with one of the BBC’s correspondents as already broadcast on the domestic Radio 4 Today programme this morning today [UK ‘bank holiday’ Monday 28 May 2007] is anything to go by, the BBC should be apologising to the world for suppressing the key evidence of the wrongdoing that has gone on inside the Wold Bank in the two years since Wolfowitz took over at the helm at the poverty-creator bank.
Why should the BBC be apologising?
Because it failed for two years to report on the effective Pentagon-takeover [as if the Pentagon had not already had enough influence over key parts of the Wold Bank even before Wolfowitz was installed there] by the gang that Wolfowitz had brought with him when he took over.
Just like the over-stated ‘Hardtalk’ slot on the BBC’s ‘international’ networks, the BBC’s so-called s’ separate operation, BBC World, is often over sold. That claim to separation itself is a lie and fraudulence.
The oft-rehearsed boast that the BBC is a ‘unique world broadcaster’ or a ‘unique broadcaster in the world’ is a doubly-pernicious lie.
The uniqueness does not lie in any independently verifiable evidence that the BBC is operated to tell the truth. If it were then a pause could be justified before denouncing the BBC’s assertions that it is unique.
Secondly, the fact that the BBC is funded by cash that is forced out of people in the UK does not make the BBC something to be proud of. It makes the BBC the most embarrassing embodiment of a police state to be found among 'the civilised west'! What a massive and monstrously ironic situation that is.
There is no accountability to the licence paying ordinary people for what the BBC does or often fails to do.
The BBC operates on failing to tell the truth. On all key issues affecting the democratic and human rights of the people in the UK, the BBC is a lying cover for the holders of the positions of power.
No part of the state in Britain is really securitised by the BBC.
And there is no alternative organisation that can provide the public the avenues for telling and receiving the truthful accounts of what is going on.
The so-called independent, commercial rivals to the BBC are in turn controlled by similarly undemocratic elements and forces.
Against all of that, the so-called regulator, OFCOM, is a joke. It has neither the capacity to even know what it can and ought to do to make the BBC accountable to the people nor is it actually personned [staffed] by ‘regulators’ who possess even a primary ability to dunertand their so-called regulatory duties.
The actual contents carried in the networks do not warrant the plugs that often go with the packages that the BBC broadcasts and publishes.
This is most acutely true when it comes to the revivalist pro-imperialist, globalising role being played by the BBC. It plugs often without substantiation, the lines that are scripted at the Pentagon or liens that will be very much approved by the Pentagon agenda setters and their Military Industrial Complex colluders.
The BBC’s own devices for self-0regaualtion are a deeply poisonous insult to all ethics and morality.
In a country devoid of a really representative and courageous parliament, the BBC acts as the monopoly liar that it can be and is able to carry on being. The people are treated as less politically and democratically demanding than sheep!
And the BBC controllers know it.
