OK you may have your opinion that the govt. instructed the BBC to be especially harmful, but this is a flawed opinion as this harmed the entire govt. Many in the cabinet resigned and Brown was almost on the verge of having to resign fairly recently as a result of this MP's expenses scandal as a contributing factor.
For the govt. to purposely harm parliament as a whole just to rid a few unwanted MP's would have been potentially suicidal, so I highly doubt that would ever happen.

The UK and US broadcast well over a dozen propaganda television satelite stations into IRan and IRaq - with many, many more radio stations.
The US government outsourced one of these to a company that simply put on English liverpool football games !
The UK are known as the masters of the dark arts for a reason, propganda in the west is occurs, only a fool would think otherwise, the issue is which is more successful ?
This is hard to answer - because so many westerners believe everything they are told blindly and without question means either the propganda is successful or they are so stupid they can not think for themselves - I think a mixture of both.....
The UK even had a ministry for propaganda - it is now called "The BBC"....
