According to an item on Liveleak the BBC has just wiped from its website hundreds of comments that criticised the accuracy of its reporting on the Syrian crisis.
Those presently campaigning to “save the BBC” might want to reflect this is a state-controlled broadcasting outlet which has consistently presented pro-government propaganda to the point of flagrant dishonesty. If Cameron is stupid enough to scrap the licence fee for one of his most loyal lap dogs then more fool him and the better off UK citizens will be.
An Article published on the 6th of October 2015 by the BBC, titled ‘Syria conflict: Russia violations of Turkish airspace ‘no accident’, included a rare free to comment section for BBC members to comment and express their views.
The comment thread was then flooded with more than 1000 comments, mostly contradicting the BBC narrative and showing support to Russia’s air campaign in Syria. The following day, the majority of top rated comments suddenly became flagged for ‘breaking the house rules’.
