    Says so much more than the halting apology I heard on PM this afternoon.

    Perhaps Primark should ask the BBC to broadcast it before the next self declared Panorama scoop!

    It’s disgusting.  But how many other faked up reports have not been so comprehensively proven?  We all know that they lie on a daily basis, but getting the incontrovertible proof is much harder.

    It’s not too long since Fresh BBC fake row as headteacher pulls school out of ‘exaggerated’ Panorama wi-fi documentary.


    …the BBC itself has upheld complaints from viewers that the programme makers exaggerated the evidence for concerns about wireless technology.
    Another complainant said the documentary, which was screened last May, was unbalanced.
    The BBC’s Editorial Complaints Unit (ECU) was called in and said the programme “gave a misleading impression of the state of scientific opinion on the issue”.
    The ECU said it had been “legitimate” for Panorama to examine concerns about wi-fi raised by chairman of the Health Protection Agency, Sir William Stewart.
    But it said the programme included only one contributor, Prof Repacholi, who disagreed with Sir William, compared with three scientists and a number of other speakers who supported him.

    That’s the BBC for you!

    That sounds like the BBC to me.

      To add to the list, does anyone remember about the case where they sent someone to film at a Catholic church? Unfortunately I can’t remember the details. Was it a case of someone with an agenda who was presented as a member of the congregation speaking on a particular topic?

        If I am not mistaken it was around the time of the pope’s visit and the footage was supposedly interviewing a random person coming out of church; however, it was a set-up.

      I caught the programme at about 20 minutes in. But watching I noticed that while the program appeared to be just a video article on the route undertaken by economic migrants in which to better their lives. The program was very one-sided in portraying these people as only victims. Victims who were more than happy to spend thousands of pounds in which to get to……the UK. Nothing was mentioned about the crimes committed by illegal immigrants or even the violence (enshrined in their holy book) they will use in which to get to the UK. Maybe there lies the reason why European police don’t trust these folks and why they are ready to use violence in which to deal with these people. However according to they bBC anybody who stands up to these hoards can only be a racist.

       

      All I saw was a sop of a story which gave the impression that we should really all open our borders and allow these people to come and live free of charge at our expense. Me, I’d deport them back (along with all the f-ing do-gooders) to the countries they left. I feel that my view point will be echoed around the land.

      Anybody who wishes to call me out as a racist, please do, but as you do so please explain why you aren’t putting these people up in your own home and  at your very own expense.

      I only caught part of the programme.  For those who watched all the way through, was it ever explained, or even conjectured, why all these illegal immigrants wanted so badly to come to the UK having reached the sanctuary of Europe?

        On a bad day for BBC documentaries a cheerful Evan Davies got a couple of recent migrants to front up this insubstantial BBC offering.

        It was a disingenuous tour de force. All the featured migrants were shown to be failing in their attempts to reach the UK. No sense was given of the scale of successful illegal immigration here. Smiling Evan made a big deal of the issue of motivation – and then fudged. All the migrants wanted to come here to ‘do the jobs many of us wouldn’t want to do’. And the UK would offer certain freedoms lacking at home. Nice. Absolutely no mention of free NHS healthcare, the benefit system, or the potential for criminal activity.

        It came over like a fund raiser, a charity appeal for help for he migrants. I was about to reach for my cheque book and make a note of the credit card hot line for donations but then I remembered I live in the real world.

        Oh and the conclusion? Well it seems to happy Davies that the UK doesn’t need to do anything, just sit back and relax because – ‘its a Europe wide problem’.

        So the BBC can tick a box and say ‘What? Of course we’ve covered the issue!’

          And when weirdo Evan Davis and his motley crew arrived in London he  introduced it as:

          London, which has welcomed, and benefited from, immigrants…

          How predictable. It’s like a parody of themselves. They never miss a chance to get a bit of propaganda in, do they?

          Where’s the impartiality in that, though? Who decided that it has benefited rather than, say, suffered from it? Or what about a bit of both?

        Why to buy a BBC TV Licence of course…with all the DAB their little hearts desire as a bonus! Far better reception here in the land of the free and the fearless BBC. No other reason necessary!

        In fact, once they buy these highly prized and cheap treasures, the rest of us might see them to be as worthwhile as our new friends doubtless do!
        No BBC raids waving their coathangers around the mosques to check all those licences. Belive that thy`re all to be found  in them every Friday-what a photo op THAT would be ,as the Sons of Righteousness put out the blue tape and break down the doors!
        Bin Laden didn`t have one-and look what happened to him!

    Breaking into Britain and trashing it. What a load of Beeb tosh, heart rending music and narration to portray the migrants as victims in all of this. How about a follow up to show the other story, what happens to local communities blighted by immigrants and the social decay which is happening as a result.

    Only the BBC could assume that the British public would be roused enough by this crap to petition for open borders. Fuck off

    What should be a major embarrassment for the BBC, after all they have been caught deliberately distorting the truth, manufacturing ‘evidence’, soon vanished from the website.

     

    Earlier today it had been relegated to the ‘Entertainment’ section of the website, now it has been replaced by a story about John Gaunt.

     

    Had it been ITV that had been caught out in such a despicable lie I’m sure it would have been headline worthy for several days.

     

    Absolute lying scum.

     

    On days like this I am tempted to try and take up where Martin left off.

    What exactly is the BBC’s problem with Primark that they have to make up these disgraceful lies against them?  

    Has their CE denounced the Global Warming scaremongering?  Have Primark made financial contributions to the Conservative Party?  Has someone at Primark commented on the unfairness of EU Trade practices?  Has Primark got a Jewish executive? Have they refused to stock burqas and hijabs? 

    Go on Beeboids, we’re dying to know – what exactly is your beef with Primark?

    The BBC has been caught out putting the political adgenda before the truth. They can’t admit this because it would expose their institutional leftism.

      From what I’ve seen the BBC commentary on this has in fact admitted that from their perspective the message is more important than this one little slip up. Says it all.

    Anybody know on what basis the BBC Complaints Unit cleared the programme makers of “faking the footage”? Are they hiding behing semantics?

    • David Preiser (USA) says:

      Their defense – as repeated by Mandarin Boaden – is that the investigators did apparently find evidence elsewhere in Primark of unhappy child labor.  So while the footage in question may have been faked, it reflected a larger “truth”.  It’s perfectly fine with the BBC because it’s fake, but accurate. 

      The Narrative is more important than honesty.

        Which why one is sure they’d be totally chilled if, say, some coppers ‘knew’ a terrorist cell was about to commit an atrocity, but helped things a long a bit with some planted evidence?

        Once you double your standards, everything is tainted. 

        The act may have been isolated (if not as ‘unique’ as contrived), the defence is self-evidently institutional, at the highest level.

        From rump to rotten head, the BBC is totally compromised.

        I wonder how what I am sure are many BBC employees of integrity feel about that, especially at the hands of a market rate talent of Ms. Boaden’s calibre?

          I would bet that the vast majority of them don’t care about this at all.  Tempest in a teapot, nothing to see here, fake but accurate.  It’s an annoyance only in that it gives fodder to the extreme fringe.

    So, if what they find, when ‘researching’ the programmes doesn’t square with their ‘bleeding heart’ preconceptions and agenda, they fake it!
    I really don’t care what other channels do, but I contribute to this via the TV Licence, and they make my sick. It is not news, or ‘hard hitting reports, uncovering truth’ anymore – but quite the opposite – it is they, the BBC who should be investigated so that we know the real truth and motives for sloppy journalism from this ever more ‘Pravda-esque’ organization.
    I should point out that I am neither left nor right in my political thinking, but am a libertarian – live and let live – when I see and hear the endless propaganda (cannot call it anything else..), I see red!
