BBC News: All the news that we are willing to report

bbc_logo_3The BBC has graciously deigned to report on the vicious assault of a prison officer after he was held hostage by ‘three inmates’ at Full Sutton Prison in Yorkshire.

The BBC News website goes on to tell readers that:

‘The North East Counter Terrorism Unit, which is investigating, said two of the suspects were aged 25 and the other 26.

‘The men are not in prison for terror-related offences, a spokeswoman said.’

Eh?

Reading through the rest of the report there is no indication as to why this incident inside a prison is, in a highly unusual step, being investigated by counter terrorist police, and no explanation as to why a spokesman said the inmates were not in jail for terror-related offences.  It’s all very curious.  Well, curious until one casts their eye across other news media…

The Sun


Daily Mail

The Express

The Mirror

Even the Guardian refers to the reports that the hostage takers were Muslims but that the claim was unsubstantiated because the prison PR team had not said as much – despite the flood of information coming out of the prison via unofficial channels.

It is truly pathetic to see the BBC twisting itself into contortions without ‘outing’ Muslim extremists or Islamists when they stand accused a violent incident.  It is worse than disingenuous to self censor and do everything possible to keep viewers, listeners and readers in ignorance of what is being reported everywhere else, simply because of the ‘sensitivity’ of identifying perpetrators of violent and criminal acts as Muslim – ironically the way they proudly identify themselves.

It is hard to feel anything other than contempt for the BBC.

    This is off topic – my apologies. Have you seen the latest post on Watts Up With That blog ? The MET office has admitted global warming has no scientific basis and they cannot produce the evidence to support it !! Well what a surprise !

    I had largely given up on discussing global warming/climate change here as I had long since argued it was a political agenda with little basis in science – and going back and forth discussing papers, findings, claims, records etc, was a waste of time.

    The only surprise is that they are tacitly admitting there is a problem with their narrative this early. But they will continue to declare this is but a pause and warming will take off again soon because of poisonous, evil CO2.

    I wish that the BBC, along with the remainder of MSM would give a true account of UAF. But hey, there are lots of nice honourable lefties in UAF aren’t there???

    Whatever it once was many decades ago it has become something else entirely, It is now the “BBC” now in name only, it is a institutionalised, hard left wing, anti English, Pro EU Dictatorship propaganda machine and this vile, disgusting and insidious ‘corporation’ needs to be disbanded immediately!.

    The BBC should be renamed Aljabeeba.
    By continually playing down the threat they are shielding an extreme ideology and lulling the country into a false sense of security. Doubtless our foremost Islamic theologian David Cameron will soon do the same by confirming that this latest Muslim outrage is also ‘a betrayal of Islam’ and that ‘there is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act’.

    There was a time when I would defend Auntie against such attacks, but no more. I have come to think that there are only three possible outcomes when its charter comes up for review in 2016.

    1) Abolish the TV Tax and make it Pay Per View.
    2) Break it up and sell it off.
    3) Shut it down completely.

    The time for discussion about the future of the Beeb should begin as soon as possible.

    I realised years ago that the BBC is just the propaganda wing of the three cheeks of the one arse party that is the liblabcon.

    It cannot be trusted to bring the news without bias, i no longer bother with the channels on offer.

    However this isn’t to say that i trust any other mainstream media any more, they each have their own agendas depending on who owns them or whos backside they currently reside in.

    Since the Woolwich attack by bloody savages we see the MSM somehow diverting wrath at the EDL, we all knew that right wing racist thugs (media terms not mine and sorry i forgot to include fascist, silly me) would be somehow be to blame, the media haven’t let us down predictable to the very end.

    I get more truth and honesty from these blogs than the whole of the bought and paid for news industry, so keep it up bloggers you peel back the peoples blindfolds very day, well done.

    Is there anyone not in the BBC or MSM’s employ that actually believes the propaganda anymore?

    XX Is there anyone not in the BBC or MSM’s employ that actually believes the propaganda anymore? XX

    Yes. 70 to 80% of the population that don’t even know what a “blogg” is, never mind READ any.

    And THEY are the bastards that are voting in the partliamentary slime time after time, after time.
