After a quick search I couldn’t find this anywhere so I'd thought I'd post it here for you all to see.
The BBC's urban/black music station 1 extra censored the word Palestine from the MC, Mic Righteous, performance. It has admitted that its staff were
perhaps a bit too cautious in doing so but insists it was not biased in its decision.
It’s ridiculous if you ask me, regardless of who is right or wrong. No one was inciting violence so there was no need to censor this, especially as
it was a part of music which is art. Art has to now be censored? Free Palestine? I say we all need freedom, as actions like this show we are not
Remember we are not free only giving the privilege of apparent freedom but they will change laws as and how they please. Do not anger or annoy your
masters, let them carry out their plan without causing them too much trouble. Pay your taxes and do as your told. If you see anyone that appears to be
upsetting the plan of your masters you must report them immediately. [/rant]

The BBC gets hounded by a very active group of pro Israeli's in this country who complain and make life hell for anyone reporting on Palestine or
showing Israel in a bad light at the BBC. They have websites dedicated to scrutinizing BBC and The Guardians content for anything they deem to be anti
Thats a shame but I guess thats the way things are. I read my news from many sources and try to find the truth somewhere in all the mixed messages and
propoganda. I wish others were the same, but too many people rely on the TV to determine their opinion on the world. I'm reminded of the staged CNN
report in the run up to the 1st Gulf war.
Channel 4 usualy have good coverage on the depravities Israel commits against the Palestinians, but dont expect to see anything on there actual news
show. No news programme in the UK is allowed to report the human rights attrocities commited by Israel
Dispatches had a good documentary Killing Zone a few years back, worth a watch.
I just posted a link in the post above yours. It was by Journalist Peter Obourne,who also made the documentry on the Muslim Clerics in the UK, so at
least no one can accuse him of being one sided. He is a highly respected journalist and it's avery interesting documentary that opened my eyes to the
Israeli lobby and their influence within UK politics. I wonder how people in the UK would feel if other countries held such a influential role in our
politics and media?
Obviously BBC is part of the Zionist media empire.
Did you forget that their "security correspondent" had "sources" telling him there were Al'Qaeda groups linked to the Norway attack? Not to forget the
insane fingerpointing towards Islam/Muslims on this site during the attacks.
What I am genuinely interested in, is the following; How come some people need to have someone with "credentials" say something before those people
believe it? Don't they have internal right/wrong compass? Or does it just have to do with "proof" and "evidence"? It happens with all kinds of
subjects so I'm just wondering...

Proof! are you being serious? The proof is the video itself. The fear and terror they are displaying is clearly only shown when they are "live". I
mean it could be legit but my spidy senses, or straight up common that sense say's it was staged.
Firstly it looks like a studio set, you even see it is a set when you get a glipse of the camera crew the way they put their gas masks on makes it
look like the're pretending they are outside, why doesnt the camera man put stop filming and put his mask on? Ok I freely admit it could be a studo
in saudi arabia which means they havent lied but why make it look like they're outisde and why all the dramatics? are they trying to inform the
public on facts or forming the publics opinion with dramatics in the form of badly acted "infotainment"? its clearly a charade.
I've had a very long discussion about this video with several members in ATS. None of them provided any evidence. "the video itself is evidence"
and "if you cant see it then I cant point it out to you" were the most common responses. Few guys actually tried. To answer you in order:
1) Yes the "fear" is complete and utter bs. That's how media works. Even if there is no bullets raining on them they still have to give the
appereance like they are in the crosshairs. It's crappy reporting but does not make the video fake since it would be the same case even if the video
was real or fake.
2) It looks like a set I guess but on the other hand he says they are on the balcony and aren't allowed to film outside. That location could be
3) Cameraman can easily keep filming since the camera is obviously on a tripod.
I still haven't seen the evidence I'd like to make it a fake. Only youtube title that says "fake". It could be or not but to deny ignorance I'd
like to see something to verify it
They do the same kind of stuff here in America, every year the Sci Fi channel runs a Twilight Zone marathon during the holidays, and one of the
episodes makes a reference to a TV repairman running a scam (a'real kosher nostra').
When that episode aired on Sci Fi, it was edited to exclude that line.
Those are good points, but I think the answer to whether it is a fake or not is still up for debate.
It is ridiculous, but that could just be, as you said, crappy reporting. I did see a video clip with the reporter being confronted about it years
later and although he didn't admit to it being fake his recation was as if he was admiting to it being fake. Again tho this is still up for debate. I
cant find the clip itself but it was in this video at 1:36:10
That was good but still I haven't really seen any evidence to say it is fake. It's complete bs. as far as news goes but nothing yet. That reaction
wasn't really that convincing either. Hadn't seen that one before so thanks for that. Also note that the "movie set" descriped in that video could
also be absolutely anywhere.
As ridiculous as it is, unfortunately, I can fully believe that the BBC would sensor the word 'Palestine'. Heaven forbid the rest of the world
should be aware that way too many people are shoved into a tiny parcel of land, after having their land occupied at an ever increasing rate, and then
blockaded and have constant check points and walls with which to contend. What happens in Palestine is an absolute travesty. The Israeli lobby is
quite powerful in the UK. It doesn't have as much of a hold as the Jewish lobbyists/superpacs do in the US, but they are still rather influential.
Ah, thanks for that link! I like it already. Way better than BBC's 'Have Your Say'- which I usually have to stop reading because of the stupid.
It's worse than Yahoo! comments sometimes, and that's really saying something.
