Something very strange is happening in the media. It started as a whisper. Conversations in the corridor, the odd email, a handwritten letter. But it is growing into the din of a noisy restaurant, where everyone has something to say. And what I hear from media insiders is that things cannot go on like this for much longer.
Journalists, writers, reporters, even cameramen hired to support a single narrative have had enough of half-truths and lies.
One gentleman on the mainstream payroll confided: “When the BBC made the series ‘Exodus: Our Journey to Europe,’ they did an episode on the situation in Serbia. They spent some time in the barracks in Belgrade where I joined the team. “The BBC decided to say that the people living in the barracks were mostly ‘Afghan refugees.’
This is complete rubbish and they knew this. It was 50/50 Afghan and Pakistani. But the point is, why would they not mention the Pakistani element? We all know the answer and it’s simply that the BBC would rather sway public opinion towards sympathy than ever have a rational and balanced report on a situation.”
This is not a unique account. Insiders at the BBC, The Guardian and other mainstream media outlets are increasingly aware that complying with the prescriptive narrative of their media masters is making them complicit in the downfall of our country.
They feel trapped.
