    You don't think its Russia learning a thing or two about propaganda from people like Truthbringer and Katsung. Youtube's full of people convinced that everything is faked from the moon in the sky(hologram) to the US school massacres.

    Anytime, anybody confronts me with truth, my mental alarm bells go off.

    I love YouTube.

    It offers all kinds of neat information, entertainment , cultural or whatever.

    It is also good for propaganda as many claims are can be represented quickly without critique.

    The video was from RT, a lot of it looked authentic to me.
    I saw the original BBC report and looking at it now with reference to the RT report it could be just as the Russians are saying.
    It could be an agency report, because I can't believe the BBC would sanction such a stitch up officially.That would make me feel better.
    Then again watching the carry on amongst our own MP's and their expenses, Big Business Tax avoidance, News Paper hacking, BBC sex scandals, Blair's phoney war, who can you trust these days?

    I was turned off by all the flashy graphics from the get-go, and dismissed the whole thing as goobledgook. Perhaps I am just too cynical.

    This reminds me of the days when I was into ham radio.

    I still remember the voices of Radio Moscow. Very professional.

    Then there was Radio La Habana Cuba.

    I suspect RT took some lessons from Cuba. I swear if it was television, it would look just like RT, with a Latin spice.

    Re: BBC Bias ? RT Report

    An intelligent audience should be able to recognise clearly biased reporting from a clearly biased source........the trouble being if it's in your own accent with a few yee haws thrown in it can seduce you into believing everything they say.
    Then again.............if you get told your house is on fire in a Russian accent..........................do you listen ?


    Just something to think on.

    Yup, one would think.

    All the same, Radio Moscow used an English accent. Back then La Habana Cuba was quite hip for the day. Should be no surprise that no matter the reason a radio station would use the voice most attractive to its audience.

    Well, first of all I would know it was not from Radio Moscow or La Habana Cuba.

    Yea, I miss short wave radio. Often wondered what I would get since moving to the center of the United States.

    It appears Mr Dawg you lack the subtlety to understand the meaning behind my post, nothing to do with actual accent......as it happens.

    I take full blame for my lack of communication skills.

    Even the esteemed LarsMac 'turned off' although his evening news from Honest TV USA has the same razzamaztazz introduction with the 'flashy graphics'......perhaps your own familiar home grown 'goobledgook' is more acceptable, comfortable like an old pair of trainers.
    The classic quote would have been "Don't shoot the messenger" because that is what I meant.

    The lack of any further 'News' covering this damning report pricks my suspicious mind more...............no BBC denial? no other News reports?
    Are the media moquls drip feeding us exactly what they think we should hear, and hiding other stuff?
    I shall reserve judgement, weighing each source against each other and my life time of "News" experiences from highly reputable sources......including Government Spokesmen.

    I have pretty much disconnected from the broadcast news. I generally gather reports from multiple sources, and run it all through my BS Filters, and digest the results.
    Life is much more palatable, these days.
