More biased debunking likely from the thoroughly discredited and scandal ridden establishment network
Friday, June 26, 2009
The BBC is about to launch another of it’s heavy duty hit pieces on the truth movement, this time concerning questions surrounding the bombings of 7/7/05 in London.
The BBC’s Conspiracy Files programme returns on Tuesday, this time to hack its way through legitimate questions that remain unanswered regarding the bombings of almost four years ago.
In the vacuum that exists due to the lack of any real investigation into the attacks, vital and legitimate questions remain, which I am sure the BBC will not fail to debunk and dismiss wholesale.
But hey, perhaps I am being overly cynical and the BBC will put out a balanced broadcast, giving equal air time to those who have uncovered evidence that suggests both criminal negligence and outright complicity on behalf of the British government.
Not likely, given the preamble posted by Conspiracy Files producer Mike Rudin on the BBC Editors Blog.
“I also think it is important to investigate the conspiracy theories that continue to develop around 7 July attacks, because they play on the fears of the Muslim community and spread a highly divisive and damaging message. ” Rudin writes.
Rudin then fleetingly highlights that some claims government involvement, before quoting two sources who both dismiss the notion out of hand.
“Brian Paddick, who was Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner at the time of 7 July 2005, argues it is important to counteract the conspiracy theories”, the blog states.
“Programmes like this may be very controversial but hopefully there will be people in the police service and in the security service and in government who will realize how important conspiracy theories are. And how important it is to try and prevent further atrocities that every attempt is made to try and counteract them.”
It is abundantly clear then, that this programme’s core aim is to “counteract” “divisive and damaging” evidence of a conspiracy, even hinting that such ideas actually promote terrorism.
Of course, the BBC’s approach should surprise no one. Given the last three hatchet jobs perpetrated by the network on the 9/11 truth movement, we shouldn’t expect anything other than an all out debunking fest on the part of Rudin and his crew.

Will the BBC address the quite impossible notion that a disaster preparedness firm was conducting drills of the bombings on the underground in the exact same locations at the exact same times as the real attacks?
Will the BBC cover the fact that the man initially named as the Mastermind of the attacks was an MI5 asset, as highlighted by US terrorism analysts?
Will the BBC highlight historical precedents of government directed false flag bombings, such as the now widely acknowledged Operation Gladio?
Will the BBC prominently feature respected investigators such as author and political scientist Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, who penned the excellent The London Bombings: An Independent Inquiry, or will they talk to discredited or uninformed skeptics who can barely string together sentences in the vain of “it was MI5 what done it, cos I saw it on the interweb”?
Will this be a hard hitting piece of investigative journalism that challenges the audience to rigorously debate the evidence and open up opportunities for an investigation into the attacks?
Or will the BBC simply produce another biased hit piece voiced over by a perfectly spoken sardonic female narrator who will arrogantly attack the carefully edited words of the skeptics and obsessively focus on tenuous issues while ignoring the hardcore evidence?
The Conspiracy Files airs this Tuesday, 30th June at 9pm on BBC Two in the UK (and a few hours later on Youtube, most likely)
