Snowden

The Sunday Times yesterday reported that British spies were placed in danger by the Edward Snowden leaks and had to be moved for their own safety. This was parroted by BBC news.

Today sceptical journalists have largely debunked the story, and the original journalist gave an astonishing interview on CNN where he admitted there was no evidence whatsoever, he was just repeating what the government had told him.

Nobody expects Murdoch press to publish facts, but we have a big problem when BBC News, a state funded media organisation, is regurgitating government propaganda. The BBC has a problem in that in order to avoid appearing biased they avoid doing much investigation and analysis, and this leads to them being gamed like this.
