BBC producer paedophile on the sex offenders register began a secret life under a fake name in Wales, where he agreed to a £450 gig to film a Christmas concert at a private girls school.

Disgraced Peter Croasdale, 58, had been ordered to tell police of his address after he was released from prison after being jailed for four-and-a-half years in 2009 for sexually abusing a girl under 13.

But the former Radio 4 producer secretly moved 160-miles from the north of England to live under an alias in Wales.

He started a new life under the name Peter Alan by winning over locals, joined a male voice choir and even moved in with a teacher.

But another sir at the Haberdashers' Monmouth School of Girls recognised him and police were called and discovered he was actually Croasdale.

The BBC Are A Disgrace

Iain Davis

Recently the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2 received a call from John in Manchester who Vine and the BBC labelled as an “antivaxxer.” John’s conversation with Vine was revealing.

Not necessarily for the content, although John made some good points, but because it exposed the BBC for what they are: an agenda driven propaganda organisation.

Similar calls from Bristol based Nigel Jones to BBC Sounds’ Any Answers and a caller from Sussex to Sarah Gorrel’s BBC Radio Sussex phone in, exposed exactly the same bias from the BBC. This isn’t one or two talking heads going off script. It is corporate policy.

In all three cases, any questioning of the COVID 19 vaccines by the callers was met with the same response. Belligerent denial, logical fallacies, a refusal to rationally debate the evidence and, relatively swiftly, cutting them off.

The BBC aren’t alone of course. The MSM, as a whole, is a cohesive propaganda organisation. When Dr Zoe Williams started talking about vaccine induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia on Good Morning Britain she too was shut down. The ITV presenters hastily instructed to announce another weather report, as if this were a scheduling necessity

While John from Manchester tried to highlight these “facts” to a UK audience, Vine decided that responding with drivel was insufficient. He felt it was necessary, or was more likely instructed, to throw in some logical fallacies too.

He chose the “appeal to authority” fallacy to start with, asking John if he was a qualified scientist. John stated he wasn’t but had researched the science for himself and so Vine doubled up and used the straw-man fallacy as well. He claimed John had said the scientists were all lying, which he hadn’t.

Vine’s “appeal to authority” is automatically an invalid argument because simply claiming that “experts say” doesn’t exempt you from critical thinking and is no dialectical trump card. Vine isn’t a qualified scientist either so what makes him think his grasp of the science is any better than John’s?

Vines accusation that John wasn’t an epidemiologist was jaw-dropping. The BBC don’t care about qualifications and will misreport them whenever they want to convince the public of their selected expert’s credentials.

Throughout the 2020 phase of the so called pandemic, the BBC incessantly reported the opinions and wildly inaccurate models of Professor Neil Ferguson, habitually referring to him as an epidemiologists.

Ferguson is not a qualified epidemiologist.

He has no qualifications in the biological sciences at all.

Yet that didn’t stop the BBC espousing every inaccurate statement and woeful prediction he made as if it were pandemic lore.

The BBC use of “appeal to authority” is even less edifying when we understand that they completely ignore huge swathes of scientific opinion simply because it doesn’t fit in with the narrative they have been told to foist on the public. John quite correctly pointed this out to Vine and the BBC so they cut him off.

This is an essential tool of the propagandists. They highlight everything which supports their agenda and ignore or, where needed, flatly deny the existence of anything and everything which challenges it.

This is precisely what the BBC have done throughout, what I refer to, as the pseudopandemic. Vine wasn’t misrepresenting the BBC. In a brief moment of clarity he personified them. There is no objective difference between the BBC and Soviet-era Central Television or Lord Haw Haw demoralising terrorised Blitz sufferers. The BBC are a disgrace.

Ex-BBC journalist tells RT who dominates world news

9 Nov, 2021 09:14
Robin Aitken says there is an “acceptable and polite” view of world events which is dominated by media liberals. The former BBC employee warns that we must all be wary of the “hidden persuaders” that operate in all forms of news.

Speaking to RT, former BBC journalist Robin Aitken said that media consumers in the West don’t always get a fair picture of what is happening around the world due to the presence of the liberal agenda behind much Western reporting. 

“You’ve got a media culture in Britain, but this extends into other Western countries as well, where there is an acceptable and polite view of world events which is dominated by media liberals,” Aikten stated.

The journalist-turned-author contended that this was very clear when it came to former US President Donald Trump, noting that there was “unanimity” in Britain’s mainstream media that Trump was a “bad thing and a bad man.” 

In a similar vein, Aikten suggested that there is a general anti-Russian atmosphere in the British media. As a result, he argued, people in the UK are exposed to a very one-sided view of events in and about Russia. 

Aikten, who left the British public broadcaster in 2007, warned that we should all be “sceptical of the hidden persuaders” that operate in the media. He noted that the uninitiated, or those unfamiliar with the way media works, should be aware that news bias is about the “selection of stories which you carry” rather than their content specifically. 

Expanding his point, he said that there are thousands of newsworthy events happening around the world every day and urged people to question why some stories are reported, and why others are not. “It’s because journalists have made a selection of stories for presentation to their audience,” he contended. 

Speaking more specifically about the BBC, Aikten contended that it was probably difficult to speak out on some issues due to a cohesive and occasionally coercive internal culture, particularly on issues relating to LGBTQ policy. He noted that a member of staff would be well advised to keep their issues to themselves on the matter.

 He said it was particularly concerning that an organization such as the Stonewall lobby group, which he argued takes a very different view on transgender rights to the rest of the population, should not be embedded within the public broadcaster. Aikten suggested it was even “dangerous” for internal staff organisations or mechanisms, such as those brought in by Stonewall, to be used to impact the BBC’s output, adding that such a situation jeopardizes its credo of impartiality.

Whistleblowing BBC Journalist Exposes Lockdown Zealotry of Colleagues

A pseudonymous BBC reporter calling himself Charlie Walsham has written a brilliant exposé in the Spectator about the pro-lockdown bias of his colleagues. Here’s how it begins:

I have been a BBC journalist for many years, and in that time I have been committed to impartiality and the corporation’s Reithian values to inform and educate. My despair about the BBC’s one-sided coverage of the pandemic though has been steadily growing for some time. And in early December, as I listened to a BBC radio broadcast, I felt the corporation reach a new low.

During a morning phone-in show on 5Live the topic of discussion was Covid jabs and whether they should be mandated, or if punitive action should be taken against those who refuse them, such as imposing lockdowns on the unvaccinated. Setting aside the fact that these authoritarian measures are now considered a matter for breezy debate, I at least expected a balanced discussion.

This was wishful thinking on my part, as ‘Michael from Birmingham’ – a caller – was about to find out. Michael told the host he hadn’t been vaccinated because he didn’t trust ‘the data’ and cited historic incidents of documented corporate malfeasance by pharmaceutical giants to explain why he was concerned. Now you may disagree with Michael, or think him completely deluded, but he was still a person who had genuine fears about the vaccine and its safety. Yet instead of holding a reasoned debate with his concerned caller, the host immediately lost his temper, talked over Michael, implied he was a flat-earther and then muted him entirely.

It was an interaction that goes to the very heart of the dismal failure of BBC News. I have been working at BBC News throughout the Covid era and have witnessed how the insatiable demands of the 24-hour news cycle have exacerbated a serious and protracted crisis. I have also seen how any attempt at balance has been abandoned in favour of supporting and promoting Covid restrictions.

I have been working at BBC News throughout the Covid era and have witnessed how the insatiable demands of the 24-hour news cycle have exacerbated a serious and protracted crisis. I have also seen how any attempt at balance has been abandoned in favour of supporting and promoting Covid restrictions.

It didn’t have to be this way. Initially, the BBC covered the pandemic in a considered and measured manner, pointing out in news summaries in early 2020 that the majority of those who succumbed to the illness had ‘underlying health problems’ and the vast majority of people who were infected would live to tell the tale. There was a time when even the joyless Chris Whitty used to emphasise this fact at news conferences.

But that context was quickly jettisoned as complacency turned to panic within government and newsrooms everywhere were swept up in a major story. The BBC’s public service brief meant reporting on Covid had an extra dimension: we had to do this ‘right’; lives depended on it; we must be responsible and ‘follow the science’; and we must debunk misinformation. These well-meaning intentions were to have unintended consequences.

The government pursued its lockdown strategy with a campaign specifically designed to frighten the public. BBC employees were not immune to this approach; neither were their managers, who were soon bombarding staff with email missives about Covid. Far-reaching measures were promised to keep BBC employees ‘safe’ from the invisible killer in our midst. Thousands of staff members were allowed to work from home. Those of us in ‘broadcast critical’ roles remained at our desks, at least two metres apart from our departmental colleagues, tapping nervously away at our sanitised keyboards in near-deserted buildings.

The atmosphere in these BBC offices in the early days of the pandemic became comically oppressive. Absurd in-house ‘safety measures’ were introduced, including baffling one-way arrow stickers on floors which routinely pointed the wrong way, making navigating staircases the stuff of an Oscar Reutersvärd fever dream. Ludicrous lift capacity limits were also imposed: only one person at a time would be allowed to travel in an elevator capable of holding a small crowd – but only up, not down. Then, in a move that could have come straight from the sitcom W1A, ‘proximity monitoring devices’ were issued to staff to enforce social distancing. These re-purposed pagers issued a quacking noise whenever one colleague came ‘dangerously’ close to another.

It was perhaps inevitable that this risk-averse, anxiety-inducing environment would have an effect on the editorial stance of the BBC. Before long, colleagues I respected, and who held sway over running orders, succumbed to the belief that lockdowns, social distancing and face coverings – the whole gamut of coronavirus measures – were the only viable route out of the crisis. Alternative strategies, even those backed by eminent scientists and medics, were dismissed as dangerous or the work of cranks without any effort being made to properly examine their ideas.

In a further deterioration of journalistic standards, the impact of Covid-19 and measures imposed to ‘stop the spread’ started to be routinely conflated in news bulletins. All the horrors of lockdown – the enforced isolation of older people; funerals without mourners; the dying being denied a relative’s hand to hold in their final hours – were blamed directly on the coronavirus, rather than the rules, and characterised as tragic but unavoidable consequences of an essential national sacrifice.

Then there were the daily death figures, reported as ‘within 28 days of a positive test’ but with little additional context. When daily deaths began to fall, positive test results would be reported instead.

Licence fee payers might have expected the BBC’s well-remunerated senior correspondents to step up to the plate and interrogate the long-term impacts of the lockdown strategy. Covid restrictions may have saved the lives of mainly older people in the short term but what of their impact on the lives and livelihoods of younger generations in the longer run? Anyone who held such hopes was to be seriously disappointed. Political correspondents instead lined up to pile pressure on ministers to take ever more draconian steps to tackle the coronavirus. ‘Why haven’t you closed down schools, Minister? Why haven’t you imposed a mask mandate? Will you order another lockdown? When? Why not sooner?’

And then there was the Health Cluster, a BBC News department which was notorious before the pandemic as being the place where stories go to die. It found itself at the centre of a maelstrom: a medical and moral morass it made no attempt whatsoever to untangle. Health reporters did not scrutinise No. 10’s medical advisers but instead amplified them, becoming, in effect, the government’s Covid propaganda wing.

The Health Cluster’s shortcomings didn’t end there. Blinded by liberal sensibilities and hamstrung by an unhealthy departmental culture, its reporters went out their way to characterise the suggestion that Covid-19 might have leaked from a Chinese lab as a conspiracy theory promoted by Donald Trump. On a BBC News webpage (which remains online), one BBC health hack said the World Health Organisation had ‘closed the lid’ on the lab leak theory after visiting Wuhan in February.

As ‘Freedom Day’ beckoned in July this year, I began to feel less downbeat about the BBC. Sure, BBC News outlets continued to invite an army of Covid zealots onto the airwaves, all of whom seemed to call for restrictions to continue indefinitely. But I thought the end of the pandemic might be in sight. Most of my BBC colleagues are good, well-meaning people. Perhaps senior managers and editors were guilty only of a form of noble cause corruption, trying their best during an unprecedented health crisis to help keep the public safe. Maybe the BBC had done nothing fundamentally wrong and I was the one who was overreacting.

But this winter has seen a rise in infections again, and inevitably there have been renewed calls for the country to lock down to protect our health service. No one knows how bad the Omicron wave will be and it might just be that only a lockdown can prevent the NHS being overwhelmed this winter. But the national broadcaster should surely feature both sides of the debate and not just relentlessly make the case for further restrictions while ignoring the toll they have on our society.

The BBC insists that it has ‘covered the pandemic with great care and in detail’ but there are signs that the corporation is once again failing in this critical function. The BBC News website now almost constantly features the ‘Live’ number of coronavirus cases. ‘Two vaccine doses don’t stop you catching Omicron’ read a headline last week, as if this was somehow remarkable – totally ignoring the fact that double-jabbed BBC staff had been succumbing to the coronavirus for months, long before Omicron reared its head.

I have come to the depressing conclusion that this pattern will keep on repeating every year and every time we face a new Covid variant.

There is a strong case to be made now that the vaccines have done their job and should (as long as the Omicron variant does not significantly evade them) protect the vast majority of people from serious illness, meaning we should no longer be forced to endure any new restrictions.

Most people in the country have obediently had the jabs when offered, including me. Personally speaking, I would rather face Covid than face compulsory restrictions every year – or live in a two-tier society where those who get jabbed enjoy freedoms denied to the unvaccinated. We’re not there yet but we seem to be getting closer by the day.

As the public service broadcaster in a democratic country the BBC should understand and feature this debate – and not act as a government campaigner. Instead, with its reporting of the pandemic, it has made a truly awful ‘new normal’ much more likely.

I have come to the depressing conclusion that this pattern will repeat every time we face a new Covid variant

I almost started a 'deconstructing the bbc home page' thread but this is close enough to be fair. 

 

22/12/21  - 13 main articles. Yes, some of these individual stories are probably horrific, but it's the choosing of them as the main news of the day, and the seed they are trying to plant that's the interesting bit to me.

 

6 covid (inc headline, obviously)

1 globalist propaganda

1 statue removal in China (priming us for more?)

1 jailed paedophile article ("we are on the side of good" "see, there is still justice")

1 guy who's jailed for throwing his baby 20 years ago (attack the family)

1 guy jailed for stalking (dont go out, it's not safe, men aren't safe)

1 MP cleared of breaking financial rules by watchdog (probably biased/comprised, i don't know to be fair, haven't looked into this one)

1 someone vaguely famous died today (gotta finish it up with death of course, probably could add it under covid if she was jabbed)

13 articles

 

3 x covid inc. headline

1 x quiz of 2021 (see how much of the brainwashing stuck)

2 x bbc gloating over side effects of lockdowns (they do this a lot). immigrants filling care work gaps (works on multiple agenda fronts), and empty high streets

1 x shilling the uk christmas no.1, an utterly soulless load of tripe. fitting.

1 x police shooting in the US (can see from first sentence it's framed as anti-cop)

2 x men getting rapey with women (allegedly, don't know or care), but suits feminist agenda

2 x feel good story. some crippled sports guy allowed home for xmas and a woman saved by a postman who heard her screams (mind you, this one's pretty fear laden. thanks "from the bottom of my heart", she says to the postie, hmmm...)

1 x man killed by dog (pets are dangerous, can probably also spread viruses etc)

Pure BBC wokery:

BBC admits interview with guest pundit Alan Dershowitz about Maxwell verdict was a mistake and says it should have told audience he was Epstein's lawyer and is accused of sex assault by Virginia Giuffre

  • Alan Dershowitz told BBC the Maxwell trial 'weakened' case against Duke of York
  • BBC slammed for not mentioning Dershowitz is also accused by Virginia Giuffre
  • Duke's lawyers to try to have Virginia Giuffre's lawsuit thrown out next month
  • Experts say even that would not remove stigma on him because of Epstein 
  • Prince Andrew and Dershowitz both deny all the allegations made against them

By Mark Duell and Nick Craven for MailOnline

Published: 12:15 GMT, 30 December 2021 | Updated: 12:15 GMT, 30 December 2021

The BBC today admitted a live TV interview with Jeffrey Epstein's former lawyer Alan Dershowitz about Ghislaine Maxwell's conviction in New York was a mistake.

Bosses launched a probe after the broadcaster failed to mention that Mr Dershowitz had represented Epstein – and is also accused of sex assault by Virginia Giuffre. An interview with him on the BBC News Channel simply described him as a 'lawyer'.

The BBC today accepted he was 'not a suitable person to interview as an impartial analyst' and it 'did not make the relevant background clear to our audience'.

It comes after one MP said 'the BBC should not give a platform to people accused of child sexual abuse' and condemned Mr Dershowitz for 'trying to silence victims'.
