Malicious fog of BBC

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Twice in the morning and once in the evening my local classical music station, 4MBS, re-broadcasts BBC World News. The short news used to be informative, timely and only marginally biased. They are still short.

Then Trump won the election and the Left decided that democracy is no good. Anybody reading history knows that the left would get to such an ideological position openly later, when in power, but the grass-roots movement, of which Trump is a current symbol, forced them to drop the mask.

Now any socialist or socialism-leaning murderer or a pipsqueak academic with something nasty to say about Trump is welcome on BBC. Newsreaders’ voices mellow and the female ones are practically sliding off the chair when they mention Fidel, Che and other mass killers. Politically correct propaganda suggests that ideas such as globalization, anthropogenic global warming, arrant feminism and homosexuality are glorious.

For some time now I have regarded it as a mark of senility when the so-called conservative writers refer to The Economist or BBC as ‘reliable, independent’. They live in the distant past.


About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    BBC is only slightly less left than ABC. Which is like saying that Himmler was slightly less anti-semitic than Hitler.
