I was watching last night’s BBC Panorama titled “Living with the Ayatollah”, where presenter Jane Corbin produced a piece of propaganda that was anti Iran & Press TV from the get go.
I’ve written extensively about Panorama’s programming and as you can see, their is now a track record of biased, one sided propaganda on the part of the BBC, so much for a public broadcaster that prides itself on it’s investigative journalism and even handed approach.
In August 2010, Jane Corbin was the presenter and interviewer for “Death in the Med”, a program that whitewashed the Israel attack and killing on the MV Marmara. This program drew much criticism for its propagandistic nature and for its duplicitous and dishonest way of dealing with the interviewees, namely Ken O’Keefe.
Is seems to be the exclusive remit of Jane Corbin to have an anti-Muslim tint to everything she says.
One cannot help but wonder if Jane Corbin’s husband, John Cradock Maples, now Lord Maples, is a former member of parliament, who was one of the 50 top influential right wingers in the country and served as the president of Conservative Friends of Israel.
Has Lord Maples and his Israeli affiliations brought any pressure to bear on how his wife approaches the making of publicly funded, yet appallingly unbalanced, BBC documentaries?
