Syria chemical weapons claim: The BBC just doesn’t give up By William Bowles

24 August 2013 — williambowles.info

Evidently, the BBC was not satisfied with the propaganda pieces I referred to in yesterday’s article, so it’s come out with another, equally audacious piece of fiction that reiterates, again without any proof, the same drivel it peddled to us yesterday (and the day before). But what ‘UN’s Angela Kane in Syria urges chemical weapons probe‘ (24/8/13) does is communicate a sense that it (the BBC’s) wishes might yet come true; that the Empire would once again unleash the dogs of war this time on poor, destroyed Syria.

All of this information is taken over by the Atlanticist media as a certainty, the conditional being formally employed to allow investigators time to report evidence in the West.

21 August 2013 — RT

The reports of massive chemical attacks in Syria might become the “red line” for the US for active military intervention. But even rudimentary analysis of the story shows it is too early to believe its credibility.

Movie Review: “We Steal Secrets”: A Masterclass in Propaganda. The Assassination of Julian Assange By Jonathan Cook

30 July 2013 — Jonathan Cook

I have just watched We Steal Secrets, Alex Gibney’s documentary about Wikileaks and Julian Assange. One useful thing I learnt is the difference between a hatchet job and character assassination. Gibney is too clever for a hatchet job, and his propaganda is all the more effective for it.

Last August, Barack Obama told reporters at the White House:

‘We have been very clear to the Assad regime… that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilised.

‘That would change my calculus; that would change my equation.’

Apologists for Israel take top posts at BBC By Amena Saleem

23 April 2013 — The Electronic Intifada

Israel’s occupation is airbrushed from the BBC’s coverage.

The American poet T.S. Eliot wrote that “April is the cruelest month.” The phrase springs to mind in April 2013, the month that a new director-general took up his post at the BBC and, within two weeks, had installed a line-up of hardline Zionists at the top of the world’s largest publicly-funded news organization.
