John Wight: "BBC stands disgraced as a propaganda outfit"

The Corporation's Executive Complaints Unit (ECU) upheld a protest from Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens following last November's broadcast of "Mayday: The Canister On The Bed." Adjudicators agreed that the programme by BBC investigative journalist Chloe Hadjimatheou failed to meet the Corporation's editorial standards for accuracy by reporting false claims.[2]

On Press TV, John Wight said the BBC has covered the Syrian conflict "not as a news organisation but as participants on the side of a medieval opposition of 7th century head-chopping fanatics." The BBC's coverage is more like that of a "propaganda outfit."[3]

If Remembrance Day imparts a message worthy of our collective intelligence it is that war should be made a crime, with those who instigate it punished as criminals. In the last analysis it does not determine who is right only who is left. We have met the enemy and he is us. End.
