The BBC’s preferred narrative when reporting from Ferguson, a town they’d never heard of before but are now expert in its racial profile and dynamics, is that this was a racially motivated killing by a white cop in a town divided by race with community tensions on a knife edge. That is the thrust of their reporting on this event with little time given over to the police version of events.
The BBC gets ever more irresponsible in the manner it reports news events. Look at the way it chased the story about Cliff Richard…..desperate for a scoop they acted like a ‘sensationalist tabloid’ blackmailing the police, or as one media pundit coyly put it, exerted ‘overmuch pressure’, so that they could get in on the story…otherwise, apparently, they threatened to ‘go to press’ regardless of what stage the police investigation was at.
The BBC’s ever present glorifying of Islamist terror and ideology…its apologist reporting on 7/7, its support for Moazzem Begg and the BBC recently suggesting that the ‘Caliphate’ now being imposed by the violent and extreme ISIS might be a good thing, never mind its support for the terrorists of Hamas…. is highly dangerous and the BBC’s narrative feeds directly into the radical’s recruitment drive encouraging Muslims to feel they have a legitimate grievance against the West.
It has long adopted a similar approach to the Black community, the BBC’s aim seemingly to foster a feeling amongst them that they have always been ‘victims’ of White oppression and that they still are….’whitey’ can’t be trusted.
The BBC doesn’t just limit itself to inflaming tensions in the UK, it is happy to contribute to stirring up racial conflict in all white areas of the world…#BBCtrending: The racist video that’s shocked Australia (no ‘shocked’ reports of black people abusing whites on trains?) and elsewhere is more than happy to label white Americans as racist, no doubt aiming to keep this narrative of global white racism current in the minds of all Black or ethnic minority people home and abroad.
With respect to that the BBC seems to have imposed a bit of a blackout on the news with regard to the shooting of Michael Brown….or rather a blackout of news that might suggest all is not as the ‘witnesses’, the ones used by the BBC, say it is.
Facts and relevant new information are thin on the ground if you listen to the BBC, the BBC prefering to stick with the racist, politicised speculation of those seeking to whip up a riot. The BBC has a habit of being very, very slow with its reporting of certain information but all too ready to report pure speculation or obviously partial claims that fit a particular agenda.
I have heard several BBC reports over the last few days and none have mentioned that the Police officer was assaulted and injured or that Brown ‘bum rushed’ him in an attempt to assault him again.
Victoria Derbyshire had a look at the events but from a very, very one sided approach…..all we got was ‘racism’, ‘execution’ and ‘police brutality’.
That’s despite a clear reported version of what happened, one that seems to be corroborated more each day….and yet the BBC fails to fully outline that version of events.
I heard almost from the start that the police officer tried to detain Brown but Brown struck the officer who was then injured. Brown ran off, then stopped, turned and rushed at the officer who shot him. Brown was near 300lbs and the officer was reportedly responding to a call that Brown had committed a robbery…though the BBC reports Brown was merely stopped for walking in the street.
Ferguson protests: What we know about Michael Brown’s last minutes
The BBC merely refers to a ‘scuffle’ between Brown and the police officer, no mention of an injury, and goes on to suggest Brown may have been shot with his hands raised, there is no mention that he rushed at the officer…..“Michael jerks his body as if he’s hit and he turns around and faces the officer with his hands up,” she said. “And the officer continues to shoot him until he goes down to the ground.”
The BBC gives us this very short description of the Authorities’ version of events:
What have the authorities said so far?
The day after the shooting, St Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told reporters that Mr Brown or Mr Johnson allegedly pushed Officer Wilson back into his car as he was trying to get out, and proceeded to physically assault the officer. At some point, they struggled over Mr Wilson’s weapon. A shot was fired in the car, at which point the officer got out of vehicle, and shot Mr Brown.
BREAKING REPORT: Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack
Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, 10:00 AM
The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.
It also seems that witnesses back up the police version….as outlined in the audio on the video we looked at yesterday:
Nothing from the BBC on these revelations.
An irony that the ‘protestors’ are now shooting innocent bystanders as they ‘protest’ about the shooting of an ‘innocent’ man.
