The News If the BBC were not allowed to lie

If you ever wondered what the BBC would present as News if they were not allowed to lie, distort, dissemble, or be biased against the US or Israel:

YouTube, No News Today

An example of Israel-bashing:

Mere Rhetoric,The BBC Lies

Neutrality, the BBC way:

A new BBC documentary series that began Monday night and examines recent peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians shows that the BBC still has some way to go to satisfy the many critics of its Middle East coverage. But following a complaint from an Anglo-Jewish activist to the BBC’s overseer of Mideast coverage, the BBC did at least reword a trailer for the series, replacing language that placed all blame on Israel for the failure of peace efforts... The trailer in question heralded, "The story of how Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Barak persuaded President Clinton to devote his last 18 months in office to helping make peace with Yasser Arafat. But Barak got cold feet twice. Then Ariel Sharon took a walk around Jerusalem’s holiest mosques, and peacemaking was over."
Children, let's review: (1) The BBC tells provable lies about Israel. (2) When the BBC isn't telling provable lies about Israel, they're lying by omission. Ehud Barak did not get cold feet. He offered Arafat 97 percent of the West Bank, full control of the Gaza Strip - which he offered to increase by roughly a third, a capital in East Jerusalem, $30 billion in compensation to Palestinian refugees, and the right of return to the new Palestinian state. Obviously, most of the important people who were actually at the negotiations explicitly insist that it was Arafat who walked out.

An example of bashing Bush for the failure of the levees pre-Katrina :

Depleted Uranium ,BBC Lies About The US

Here's an example of the way the BBC advances its lefty agenda. It's very clever - Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda chief, would be proud of the subtlety.

The 1711-word article is mostly inaccurate garbage, but contains this neat poison pill.

From 2003 onwards, the Bush administration cut funds amid charges from the Army Corps of Engineers that the money was transferred to Iraq instead. The latest annual budget was cut from $36.5m to $10.4m.

As for American News Media, the same scenario would play out if they were not allowed to bash Bush, discuss Britney Spears' lack of panties or wonder endlessly about who is the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby. It would be just as quiet.
