    OfCom Stomps RT? Better Outlaw OfCom! 


    Of course OfCom has banned RT  – breaking news on UK Pravda just an hour ago…

    =

    …but if RT is not a ‘fit and proper’ broadcaster, why not ban UK Pravda too?

    We have considered RT, have criticised some of its programmes and praised others.

    Yet by any reckoning, the BBC is infinitely worse.

    OfCom may have occasionally offered mild criticism of the BBC but has more often given their left bigotry a green light.

    .

    Reminder – Why OfCom Needs Gutted!

    And we weren’t the only ones to think so.

    ===

    Nadine Dorries plans to target Ofcom over ‘bias towards the BBC’ as officials raise concerns that 10 out of 14 of regulator’s content board members used to work at the broadcaster

    OfCom Sty-Purge Or Another Nadine Non-Event? 

    And I just heard Amal Rajan, the BBC’s ‘media editor,’ explaining how the difference between ‘state broadcasters’ and ‘public broadcasters’ was that the latter didn’t bring ‘ideological baggage’ into their jobs.

    So by that definition BBC is NOT a public broadcaster…

    HAR HAR HAR…’ A BBC Spokesman Said…’ 

    …as you and I have noticed.

    We have criticised Putin’s adventurism sufficiently but we are not afraid to read or watch stuff that’s published by his fans.

    We credit most Brits with enough sense to do the same without being gulled.

    So we see no reason why a pack of ex-BBC hacks….

      ( as many an OfCommissar is, with consequently predictable outcomes –

    OfCom, As Un-Elected As Judges, Move Against Farage 

     – in their deliberations  )

    ….should insult Brits’ intelligence by denying them the chance to hear both sides of the story.

      I always found RT a lot more balanced than BBC.

    Will Sleazy BBC Cover THIS Scandal? 


    We have drawn attention to OfCom as a ‘not-fit-for-purpose’ outfit often enough….

    OfCom, Not a Watchdog, Just An In-Crowd Lapdog

    ..but this latest revelation, which…..

    ..has prompted calls for the media regulator to overhaul a board scrutinising the BBC because more than half its members have links to the broadcaster

    Starmer-Troops Urging OfCom – ‘Stomp UK Media Diversity?’ 


    My personal eating habits have changed since the onset of the Chinese Virus, simply because it’s faster and easier to use cucumbers, cheese and tomatoes to make salads – which I find I like – than to prepare anything else.

    .

    Still, I relapse now and then.

    I bestirred myself and boiled up a couple of packets of instant noodles with potatoes the other day and it was yummy!

    But my regular Indonesian visitor, on hearing of my detour from the straight and narrow dietary path, scolded me cheerfully –

    ‘Karbo terus!

    Non-Stop Carbohydrates!

    So I was thinking of writing about Bojo’s latest Nanny-State venture, his ban on ‘junk-food’ ads….

    ..Johnson had previously criticised the sugar tax, labelling it a “sin stealth tax”, but is understood to have changed his mind after he was hospitalised with Covid-19 in April. The prime minister is said to blame his own weight issues for contributing to his illness…

    .

    .

    …which says more about Bojo’s infantile inability to control his personal gluttonous urges than anything else, and his evident assumption all other Brits need to be told what to eat, like 5-year-olds.

    But I prefer to alert readers to something much of the British media will perhaps have gloated over.

    .

    Read this, then use the link!

    We have this leaked letter, arguably proof that Sir Keir Starmer wishes to curb the free press and most notably attack an independent, so-called, media regulator,” said Ashraf Rattansi, host of RT’s Going Underground, referring to the Labour leader.

    https://www.rt.com/uk/495679-labour-letter-rt-license-rattansi/

    I often take a look at RT and never know if it will make me smile, or nod approvingly, or explode!

    But unlike Theresa the Bubbler…

    .

    May BANS Media From Media Freedom Conference – Seriously! .

    =Gambar terkait

    …I have always defended RT’s right to publish what it pleases!

    Hands Off RT! Somebody Should Start A Petition! 

    ..because, as I have noted previously –

    – it has done what a BBC report claims it has been ‘attempting’ to do. – ‘position itself as an alternative to mainstream media outlets’

    RT OK – Some Reasons Why May’s Jackboot Is Misplaced!

    It has its own biases, though nothing as all-pervasive as the BBC’s, which for years and years…

    …but this year with almost manic escalation…

    …has poisoned the air-waves with its partisan prejudice.

    .

    But if you carefully peruse the linked RT report, you will see for yourselves what Labour is up to, eager to collaborate with an un-elected outfit, OfCom, which should have no place in a free society, as a jackboot on the throat of free expression, or at all!

    We now have the words of… Starmer’s Shadow Department of Culture, Media, and Sports Secretary in a private letter sent to this independent regulator saying, almost telling her urgently, ‘I need to see you.’

    ……..
    Jo Stevens
    …Jo Stevens, Starmer’s Shadow ‘Culture’ spokesperson

    ………..

    To do what?

    To interfere with an independent regulator?

    Devastating.

    oooooooo

    If OfCom is holding secret conclaves with censorious Labour busy-bodies like Starmer’s sneaky side-kick, Jo Stevens, it’s no ‘independent regulator!’

      Tell me, Ross, how you choose what news to discuss.
      This was very interesting to read, but got me wondering.
      You jump from your eating tastes to Boris Johnson’s, then completely break with all that and go on to RT.
      You ignore important countries for weeks but write about places some of us have barely even heard of.
      Is there any pattern to it that I can’t figure out?

        Good afternoon, Noreen. Your comments are always welcome, especially as you are articulate and don’t make me overhaul your grammar as others often do.
        My apologies for not replying sooner but time-zones matter.
        The answer?
        Purely random,is how I work.
        Sometimes somebody sends me something, or I read something – I read constantly – and it gets me started. Sometimes what I write lies dormant in the pending box for weeks. Then breaking news reminds me to dust it off and use it.
        At the moment I am obviously engaged in the war of civilisation V barbarism, BLM being the latter and it being a real threat to all civilised countries.
        I’m writing much more about America, because unlike Britain, the USA has a leader who is fighting back.
        The larger countries get plenty of attention but the smallest news item in the smallest country will catch my eye if it seems interesting or useful to make a point.
        And sometimes, on a sunny day like today, I get fanciful and let my mind roam, thinking of fun ideas that will infuriate undesirables!

    OfCom, As Un-Elected As Judges, Move Against Farage 


    So now the un-elected flunkeys of OfCom, nobodies whose names are unknown to probably 95% of the British people, are going after Nigel Farage.

    OfCom has been in the news before, when it sought to suppress media that the UK ruling class dislikes…

    OfCom, Not a Watchdog, Just An In-Crowd Lapdog! 

    …but if you read this report ( yes, it’s published in an enemy country, but the same story appears in Brit media too) you’ll see how..

    A clash between Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage and a caller on his LBC radio show over the prospect of the creation of an EU army has sparked an investigation by Ofcom   https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/world/nigel-farages-radio-clash-over-eu-army-investigated-by-ofcom-952516.html

    Since when do tax-funded bureaucrats get to referee and rule on who’s right or wrong on a radio call-in show?

    =====

    As for the issue, the looming threat of a European Army, this has been on the cards for long enough.

    Donald Trump’s victory, as well as Brexit, ought to speed up plans for EU defence integration, Germany has said.

    Germany, of course, does not speak.

    Its political spokespersons do.

    “Europe needs common political will for more security policy relevance. The outcome of the election in America could provide an additional impetus…”

    And who said that, THREE YEARS ago?

    .oooooooooooo

    ————-

    …German defence minister Ursula von der Leyen said in an opinion article in the Rheinische Post, a German newspaper…
    And the Fourth Reich Fuhrerin is absolutely in line with Britain’s other foes…

    The European Commission has said it is “delighted” that the leaders of France and Germany have backed the creation of a “real” EU army.

    A spokesperson for the commission’s president Jean-Claude Juncker said he was “pleased” that the argument for the force seemed to be “going in our direction”.

    Well, if The Drunkard endorses it, we had all best bob down and do what we’re told.
    But…
    ..

    How bizarre, that leaders like Merkel, who ordered her own border security forces to stand down in the face of massive alien incursions, and Macron, who allows hordes of alien savages to roam French towns…

    …and fighting French cops and terrifying French citizens, how outlandish that they want a European Army….

    …unless, of course, they foresee a need to use force to coerce Poland, or Hungary…

    ..or a British resistance movement, if Remainer collabos thwart Brexit?

    A very biased leftist named Sophie Shevarnadze has her own little show on RT…

    …and this week she wished all the best to an ill-brought-up American turncoat who appeared to be incapable of offering any comment on his own country without repeatedly resorting to the foulest language.

    The bizarre creep, Brandon Bryant, gabbled away about how terribly wicked drones were, at least if they were drones operated by the USA – almost all his offensive venom was directed at America…

    Aaah, I’m sure you can find the sad pair via the RT website.

    But hark!

    i hear people saying – ‘Hey, Ross, you were pro-RT, and now you’re slagging it off.’

    Not so!

    RT is a lot more complex than meets the eye but it is currently very anti-Trump, because Trump, under pressure, has become anti-Russian. Hence Silly Sophie’s sloppy indifference towards standards of professional interviewing.

    That hostility itself is a a strange phenomenon, because the American people, if not their politicians, owe a great debt to the alleged Russian ‘meddlers,’ who revealed the depths of anti-Semitism and other dirty tactics the Democrats deployed in the 2016 presidential election campaign.

    Wasserman Schultz sunk by aides’ anti-Bernie emails – US Elections

    But we’ve noted that before. ‘Meddling’ is bad unless its perpetrated by the Media-Democrat Party.

    When their flawed idol, Obama The Racist, stuck his sleazy snout into votes taking place in other countries –Well Said, Nigel – But Action Needed! Mass UK Anti-Obama Protests!     –  neither CNN or ABC, the American ABC, which is just about as far-left as the loathesome Oz outfit…

    .

     –

    Sophie’s former employers, BTW

    …or the NY Times or WaPo uttered a whisper of criticism.

    Not that I heard, anyway.

    But unlike CNN or the rest of the rat-pack, RT also gives fair coverage of the crimmigration crisis…

    Terrorist ‘teacher’ found guilty of grooming ‘army of children’ to attack London landmarks 

    Honest Report On Berlin Jew-Haters? TRY RT, NOT DW! 

    …or as some dumb Deutsche Welle ding-a-ling called it this week, the ‘so-called migration crisis‘ – I’ll bet she doesn’t go out alone at night in ‘refugee’-infested areas!

    RT features programmes with personalities whose politics would sometimes delight and sometimes annoy you and me.

    UNLIKE, except on rare occasions, the rotten left-liberal media. Russian TV Gives UK Terror Threat Top Spot – Unlike BBC!  And as one commenter today points, CNN’s hirelings even use Royal Wedding news to promote left-liberal ideology!

    So I will keep watching RT, and will defend it against schemes to get the government-funded ‘Ofcom’ flunkeys to shut RT down…

    “Can we just stop ‘Russia Today’ just broadcasting its propaganda in this country?”

    ===========

    “We have heard the Prime Minister’s statement in the House of Commons this afternoon and we await her further statement on Wednesday [March 14)]. We will then consider the implications for RT’s broadcast licenses,” said the agency.   https://www.mediaplaynews.com/u-k-politicos-call-for-russiatoday-tv-ban/

    Hands Off RT! Somebody Should Start A Petition! 

    …and thus deny British people the right to enjoy or be annoyed as they see fit.

      You got it right on this, mate.
      I like RT even when it infuriates me, because I can be confident within 24 hours if not sooner there will be something on RT that will infuriate the lefties.

      I have seen that Bryant before on tv, he is not just another leftwing fanatic. more like he is eaten up with hate for America. He talks like he is high on something and I think it must be hatred.
