Exploitation, Exposition: or just the plain, unvarnished truth?

 

They say that America invented the term ‘hyperbole’; I always thought it came from the Greek.

 

Coming from the NYPD, themselves no fans of Trump; perhaps the news comes just too late to be exposed and digested?

    Did anyone hear “A Point of View” on Radio4 this morning at 8.48am. 6Nov.

    America Votes by Adam Gopnik.

    “Adam Gopnik reflects on why he believes a victory for Donald Trump would be a disaster for America.”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b080xx1r

    It was one of the most biased propaganda pieces I have heard for years. It was so full of lies against Trump in the most hateful and inflammatory language, stuff already exposed as false.
    He made Hillary into a wonderful innocent saintly lady who is being falsely accused.

    I was shocked at how low the BBC could stoop, but knowing how 99% of the UK get their news from the msm, I guess they will just swallow it hook line and sinker.

    Obviously, few Americans listen to the BBC, but with syndicating, it gives the US media opportunity to falsely show what the UK thinks of Trump.

      Really?

      I don’t wish to be offensive, but maybe you need to get out more.

    This is why we need to destroy the BBC. Perhaps, next election, when we get our Trump they will do it. Our current bunch are as useless as the rest.

    I don’t trust any of our mainstream media, its been over 30 years since i bought a newspaper, and our viewing of anything live such as bbc/itv/c4/other bought biased version of news or current affairs from the idiot box would probably total 15 minutes over the course of the year.

    Its not just to avoid state and the state’s owner’s propaganda, its more simple than that, within 30 seconds of such a program being watched or listened to in our home the device issuing the broadcast is in severe danger of being bricked by my wife, who has a lower threshold for lies unsubtle brainwashing and utter bollocks than i do.

    I fear those of us who can see what is happening, or those who are still capable of independent thought, whilst growing in number, are falling behind as the cancer spreads.

    Our own Brexit has hit the first set of buffers on its rocky road, the end game isn’t going to be what we had hoped for i am afraid, much skullduggery afoot currently destroying UKIP from within, and once that fails entirely our hopes for a democratic revolution die with it.
    God, the rest of our lives with Tory and Labour front placements taking turns every so often as grinning PM’s outside number 10, the very thought could drive a good man to drink.

    The future of all of our lives hang on the US election result, if Clinton gets in we might as well just go on the piss and not bother any more, for all our civilised reasonably free worlds are going to change for the worse.

    Just as with the legion of knives out for Farage over the last few years, you can see the same forces, though far more in number, lined up against Trump.

    If Clinton wins, i shall give up worrying what happens any more.

    The programme is called ‘A’ Point of View’ – there is only one speaker.

    Name one ‘lie’ stated?? He dissected exactly what Trump is. Those who vote for him are the same type of people who would’ve voted for Hitler in Germany in 1939, or Erdogan in Turkey.

    But the the truth sometimes hurts.
