Not That Anybody's Trying To Pull A Fast One


Way to go, BBC. At least when you get caught manipulating popular opinion you do offer up a mea culpa.


It not be what the internets were invented for, but it has become it's most practical and important use (next to the proliferation of pornography, of course):catching the powers that be in a blatant lie designed to sway public opinion towards the will of the corpocracy. That these people have been pushing for a war against Iran for a long time goes with out saying. And if they can't get people all concerned about Iran's non-existent nuclear weapons program, perhaps the antiquated notion of "defending democracy" can rouse the masses, or at least those who still think that we're a democracy.

Well, you know, Mousavi, Ahmadinejad -- tomato, tomahto...

Our Israeli puppetmasters still want us to invade that backward country. We must obey our masters. Israel is running out of room for new settlements in the West Bank. If they can annex Iran, think of all the new settlers Israel could herd in.

Oh wow. Just a little over-zealous with the PhotoShop cropping tool...

The irony is that the pro democracy protests were big enough that the BBC didn't need to play these games. They have gotten incredibly lazy.
