diesel BS: Article: BBC vs American news reporting (11) RE: BS: Article: BBC vs American news reporting 26 Jul 03


About 13 years ago, Iwas in a job where news form 'outside' was via shortwave radio - predominately the BBC world service. (and an excellent service it is).

One morning tuning in - a news report came across, ' Terrorists form the IRA have fired a RPG rocket at 10 Downing street which landed 100 metres AWAY from.....etc '

quickly I tuned around, happened to find Radio Moscow broadcasting the same message in English ' Freedom fighters from the IRA have fired a RPG rocket at 10 Downing street which landed 100 metres CLOSE to .....etc '

Same message different spin.

I Always think about that in any news I listen to now.
