There is a bit of background to this Alex Salmond and BBC Pravda business at:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotlan...itics-41934399

Salmond thinks the BBC reporting of the Scottish independence referendum was biased in the same way as their reporting of Syria and Rhodesia-Zimbabwe was biased and their deafening silence with regard to the bugging scandals.

Quote:
SNP MP Douglas Chapman tweeted at BBC presenter Andrew Neil that Mr Salmond had "probably got fed up waiting for an offer from the UK propaganda machine...you know, the one you work for."

Yes, we get that many Scots (including some that post regularly on this board) think that the BBC's coverage of the independence referendum was heavily biased government propaganda. There are others, no doubt, who would contend that the bias was in the other direction. The BBC does however have a worldwide reputation for (comparatively) fair reporting.

OTOH Russia Today is known to be the mouthpiece of the Kremlin and has been shown time and again that it merely spreads propaganda.

Alex Salmond is being hypocritical for working for a broadcaster that is known to be heavily biased whilst criticising another broadcaster which by comparison is less biased.

Contrary to your assertions, the BBC often covers the stories you complain about it not covering. Perhaps not to your satisfaction but then again the BBC is attempting to provide a news service for the country as a whole and not pander to your particular obsessions and/or points of view.

Continual coverage of Zimbabwe which repeats Henri McPhee's assertion that black people are unfit to govern as Prime Ministers and/or Presidents and which daily bows to the infinite (and 60 year old) wisdom of Roy Welensky

All this does is highlight his hypocrisy. His comparison made it clear that he thinks the BBC indulges in the same kind of government propaganda that Pravda is notorious for, then he goes to work for Pravda. That is out and hypocrisy regardless of what items he may believe the BBC is biased on. Though much like yourself he has failed to offer any evidence to support his opinions about the BBC.

If I had a nickel for every bit of technical misreporting by media sources on firearms I'd be a very rich man.

The fact that I'd be merely "rich" if it was limited to alleged "experts" in law enforcement and anti-terrorism is a sad state of affairs.

I'm sure there's all kinds of rubbish on Youtube.

I actually did watch it - it's a short clip of a Not The Nine O Clock News show.

Irrelevant and horribly outdated - a typical Henri McPhee reference in other words

East Ghouta is controlled by Isis, which has been involved in rapes and beheadings and amputation punishments. This is never mentioned by BBC Pravda, or by Foreign Office officials. There have been CIA officials on TV recently who have said they spent their entire careers in the past interfering in elections around the world. This is also never mentioned by BBC Pravda, which only highlights any Russian influence.

I can't quite see why BBC Pravda and UK Channel News supports the Syrian opposition, and Army of Islam, in Damascus. They don't seem to support these people much when there are atrocities in London or Manchester. I suspect these biased journalists might have a different perspective if they actually lived in Damascus. It's the fault of the 'keeping it dark' mainstream media. They never properly investigate any poison gas provocations and propaganda, and they just blame it all on so-called Russian collusion.

To ramble on, BBC Pravda was at it again yesterday, along with the rest of the fake news, with their female journalists saying the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical attack in Damascus a few years ago. The fact is that Porton Down has reported the poison gas involved in that came from Turkey. Terrorists in Syria and Iraq, if not London and Manchester, have used chlorine poison gas.

That sort of false propaganda can start a war. There is no conclusive evidence the Syrian army has used chlorine gas, though I suppose it can't be ruled out. They may have bombed Syrian opposition chlorine dumps.

A court must take into consideration nothing but the evidence in the case before it, and witnesses other than experts must not be allowed to give their opinions, but must speak only as to facts.

Do you have any evidence to support the highlighed part ?


edited to add......

Also, what are you attempting to imply when you say "with their female journalists" ?

On the other hand, maybe it's better he keeps saying "BBC Pravda" so nobody gets the wrong impression and imagines he's to be taken seriously.

Childlike Empress on this forum came up with some evidence that Porton Down thought the chemical weapons used in Syria came from Turkey. As usual BBC Pravda and the American fake news outlets always blame it all on the Russians and Syrian government with no real proof to back it up. There are several websites about this matter.

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/n...-34286662.html

Quote:
"It’s a high probability that this attack was carried out with those basic materials shipped through Turkey. It is said the regime forces are responsible but the indictment says it’s ISIS. UN inspectors went to the site but they couldn’t find any evidence. But in this indictment, we’ve found the evidence. We know who used the sarin gas, and our government knows it too,” he said.
Erdem said the basic materials for the sarin gas would have been sourced in Europe.
"All basic materials are purchased from Europe. Western institutions should question themselves about these relations. Western sources know very well who carried out the sarin gas attack in Syria. They know these people, they know who these people are working with, they know that these people are working for Al-Qaeda. I think is Westerns are hypocrites about the situation.”

Some doubts from Porton Down about Syrian chemical attacks are mentioned at this website:

https://timhayward.wordpress.com/201...d-responsible/

BBC Pravda journalists should be made aware of this before they say that speculation is fact and evidence:

Quote:
It is worth keeping this background in mind. Although not mentioned much in our press, tests showed that the 2013 chemical attacks could not credibly be blamed on Assad’s forces.[3] President Obama had been all set to bomb Syria when, at the 11th hour, General Dempsey, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who knew of the true state of intelligence, had a word with him.[4] Obama called off the bombing, apparently mindful that congress would be apprised of the intelligence.

Weak evidence but even then it does not support your claim that it was definitely Turkey.
