Britain's Ministry of Truth

by Stephen Lendman

Britain is a virtual appendage of hegemon USA's rage for unchallenged global dominance by whatever it takes to achieve its diabolical aims.

Its dominant media operate in similar fashion to US and other Western MSM — featuring state-approved propaganda on key domestic and geopolitical issues.

The BBC is owned, funded, operated and fully controlled by Britain's ruling regimes.

Journalism as it should be is consistently shunned. 

Just the opposite is featured — notably state-approved press agent reports over truth and full disclosure.

It's been this way for the past 100 years since the beeb's 1922 founding — its first general manager, John Reith, infamously saying:

UK ruling elites "know they can trust us not to be really impartial."

How can the broadcaster be when its management is appointed by UK ruling authorities to assure what's reported serves their interests.

From inception to today, the beeb consistently betrayed public trust.

Truth and full disclosure are considered heresy when conflict with the fabricated official narrative. 

Long ago, the BBC was labeled the British Falsehood Corporation for being a reliable government and business partner.

Its claim about "honesty, integrity (being) what (it) stands for, free from political influence and commercial pressure" is worlds apart from how it operates.

Days after Russia launched its liberating SMO in Ukraine, the beeb falsely accused its forces of war crimes.

With no evidence suggesting it, the BBC made stuff up in similar fashion to how US MSM operate against invented enemies of the state.

Around the same time, the beeb defied reality by accusing Russia of being a nuclear threat, again citing no credible evidence because there is none.

Long forgotten was Britain's involvement in combating the scourge of Nazism in Germany — what its ruling BoJo regime supports in Ukraine.

And whatever positions its ruling authorities take on major issues, the BBC is sure to endorse — no matter how often in breach of the rule of law.

Days earlier, its Russia editor, Steve Rosenberg, interviewed Sergey Lavrov.

Rosenberg's introductory remarks didn't surprise, falsely accusing Russian forces of "kill(ing) thousands of civilians (sic)" — no evidence cited in typical BBC/MSM fashion.

Rosenberg then mocked Lavrov for explaining the following:

"We declared a special military operation because we had absolutely no other way of" defending Russia's security and halting years of Kiev's aggression on Donbass with US/UK/ and other Western supplied weapons and munitions.

Russia's SMO followed years of its good faith efforts to end conflict along its border diplomatically.

They failed because the US, UK and other Western regimes sabotaged them.

Rosenberg then mocked the notion of Nazi-infested Ukraine, what there's no ambiguity about, saying:

Lavrov "repeated the official Kremlin line (sic) that there were Nazis in Ukraine." 

"Russian officials often claim that their military is 'de-Nazifying' the country" — falsely implying the absence of Nazified rule despite indisputable evidence proving it.

And this Rosenberg rubbish:

Citing a fake news report by UN Russophobes, he falsely claimed that Russia's military held "360 residents (of a Yahidne village hostage), including 74 children and five persons with disabilities…forc(ing) (them) to stay for 28 days in the basement of a school (with) no toilet facilities (or) water (sic)," adding:

"Ten older people died. Is that fighting Nazis (sic)?"

Lavrov responded saying:

So-called "international diplomats, including the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN Secretary-General and other UN representatives, are being put under pressure by the West."

"And very often they're being used to amplify fake news spread by the West" about all things Russia and other nations free from US control.

And this from Rosenberg:

Hegemon USA "accused (Lavrov)  of pursuing a false narrative of Ukraine as the aggressor, and of direct responsibility for Russia's invasion."

Rosenberg ignored the UN Charter's right of self-defense.

Russia justifiably invoked it to defend its threatened security by US-orchestrated and directed war along its borders.

And as explained earlier, Vladimir Putin authorized Russia's SMO to begin on Feb. 24 because over 100,000 US-controlled Ukrainian forces were mobilized in preparation to invade the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk republics bordering Russia, as well as the Russian Republic of Crimea.

Russia acted to prevent what would have been disastrous if not prevented, Lavrov adding:

"When a CNN correspondent told Zelensky that (Nazified) Azov (thugs) had been put on the list of extremist, terrorist organizations in some Western countries, in the US and Japan, (the US-installed puppet) shrugged his shoulders and said that they had many such battalions and regiments, and they are what they are."

Russia "had no other way out."

"Now, the Ukrainian regime is attacking civilians (in) cities with Western weapons."

"They way they were doing it in 2014 when (putschists seized) power, when they bombed the center of Lugansk from planes, when they burned 50 people (to death) in Odessa. Does anyone remember this now?"

In response to years of attacks on Russian nationals in Donbass, Moscow responded to protect them and its own security.

The only legitimate issue is why didn't Vladimir Putin didn't act earlier?

In response to Rosenberg asking about hostile UK relations — in deference to its higher power in Washington, he left unexplained — Lavrov said the following:

"(T)here's (no) room to maneuver any more because (PM) Johnson and (foreign minister) Truss" are militant Russophobes.

They "openly (call for) defeat(ing) Russia" with remarks like:

"We should force Russia to its knees. Go on, then, do it."

"We must ensure (that Vladimir Putin) faces a defeat in Ukraine" —  in support of Nazism in Europe's heartland left unexplained.

Lavrov correctly stressed that (US vassal state Britain is) "sacrificing the interests of its people for the sake of political ambitions."

On the issue of two British mercenaries in Ukraine, ones involved in trying to kill Russians — now captured, detained and sentenced to death, Lavrov explained:

"According to international law, mercenaries are not recognized as combatants."

They're criminals operating with pure evil intent — notably in Ukraine by supporting tyrannical Nazi rule, aggression by Kiev on Donbass, and US-dominated NATO proxy war on Russia.

Suppressing vital truths like US and other Western MSM, the BBC is a national disgrace.

Throughout its history, journalism as it should be has been banned from its reports — state-approved propaganda rubbish exclusively featured on virtually all major domestic and geopolitical issues.
