A 112-page report from media regulator Ofcom censures the broadcaster for what the Daily Mail has called a “blatant breach” of broadcast rules.
Ofcom warned of an “inherent risk to the BBC’s independence and integrity” as it emerged the state broadcaster purchased films funded by outside bodies and foreign governments for as little as £1.
The Independent reports Ofcom has found almost 50 breaches of TV standards among broadcasters, with funders ranging from the United Nations, British businessman and Imam Aga Khan, and even a Cambodian casino.

Earlier, he started a 2013 Facebook rant with “I don’t support the troops, America, and neither do you. I am tired of the ruse we are playing on these brave citizens in our armed forces.” He went on to say troops “get sent off to wars that have NOTHING to do with defending America or saving our lives,” and chastise the military industrial complex as well as insincere public support.
“How many of you who say you ‘support the troops’ have visited a VA hospital to bring aid and comfort to the sick and wounded?” he said, before saying the best thing a troop can do regarding “the ideals our country says it believes in” is to get out of the military and “never look back.”

I guess I feel obligated to cover this. There are multiple levels of stupidity at work here. But here goes…
‘Unpleasant cloud of death’
America destroyed Iran’s democracy in 1953 and installed a puppet thug, the Shah, who — with CIA help and training — tortured and murdered political opponents for 25 years. There was no justice for this international crime, a breach of the UN Charter.
The people of Iran rose up, with organization provided through the Islamic institutions, and threw out the Shah and the USA in 1979.
Prior to that Iran was aided in building nuclear reactors by the US itself.
The age of proliferation came upon us where some nations are given a free pass, such as ISRAEL & PAKISTAN (and the USA, Britain, France, Russia, et al.) , when they develop nuclear weapons, actual bombs. The scam of the non-proliferation treaty NPT was that the nuclear nations supposedly agreed to eliminate their arsenals in the bargain. That was a ruse, bogus, nonsense, not ever gonna happen.
However, in other nations, IRAN in particular, we have the double standard. For some reason Iran is the special case to prompt global hysteria and fabricated panic. We should cower from the prospect of the Iranians developing a nuclear deterrent, because in actuality that would tell Israel and Saudi Arabia to back the hell off. Deterrents are insurance against frivolous attacks.
For some unholy reason, the US is in bed with Israel and Saudi Arabia, two of the most despicable regimes on the planet. Israel regularly murders Palestinians with military onslaughts, maintains an Apartheid state that was even called such by former president Jimmy Carter, and threatens to annihilate any country it sees fit with its arsenal of hundreds of atomic bombs.
Saudi Arabia is arguably quite a bit worse than that. Both are US allies that are given special treatment, a double standard, and both continue starting shit across the Middle East as Washington chuckles. Saudi Arabia sponsors Muslim Brotherhood, Al Nusrah and ISIS. This “kingdom” has also invaded Yemen next door and killed thousands of civilians with US supplied arms.
Prince “Bandar Bush” threatens an extermination of all Shi’ite Muslims, including Iran, if he gets his way. Saudi Arabia has also moved to acquire nuclear arms from its partner nation Pakistan without raising any red flags whatsoever! Nobody even discusses this medieval absolute monarchy and tyranny getting nukes.
Has even one of the shrieking right wing blowhards of the US congress even mentioned Saudi Arabia making a deal with Pakistan to get nuclear weapons?
So, back to this Iran nonsense: Iran has been completely accommodating to illegitimate US demands. It has bent over and taken sanctions, deals dictated to it, and violations of its sovereignty. All this because psychopaths in Israel and the US want to invade and bomb it. Thus they eliminate a rival, a different “sphere of influence,” and one that holds an awful lot of natural gas and oil.
Iran is just another target on the imperial “hit list.”

“The bill gained momentum after a measles outbreak that started at Disneyland and killed more than one hundred people.”
This is a fabrication at a time of increased controversy over forced vaccinations of children. One person died from complications related to measles, a woman in Washington State, the only US case in a decade. What’s more the woman WAS vaccinated against measles, putting a new spin on the manufactured hysteria:
Woman who died of measles WAS vaccinated: First patient to die of disease in U.S. for 12 years succumbed to disease because of other health problems
Multiplying 1 death to “more than 100,” in order to scare the public, should rightly be considered unlawful propaganda. The public airwaves were just used to spread demonstrably false disinformation.
As long as those 100 fictional deaths are relevant, how about these real ones?
…as of December 14, 2014 there have been 6,962 serious adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in connection with measles vaccine since 1990, with over half of those occurring in children three years old and under. Of these events 329 were deaths, with over half of the deaths occurring in children under three years of age.
It’s not so simple, so cut and dry.
Merck, the main manufacturer of the measles vaccine is being sued in a class action suit for shitty quality and ineffectualness. Plus they rigged the tests (which the companies control rather than having independent labs as referees).
We are drowning in a sea of propaganda on every issue of any public importance. The corruption, as demonstrated, reaches right into the newsrooms of PBS.

Right wing fantasists rely on myths, these mythical incidents that never happen, in order to sell their extremist ideology.
