WORKING FOR THE CLAMPDOWN ….
As the march towards the complete suppression of Free Speech, independent thought and deed and any alternative to the mainstream narrative of the state gathers pace – would it come as any surprise to learn that the BBC (and undoubtedly other mass media juggernauts), have now started to target those who are seen as the citizenry of the future?
In the following BBC article, published in December last year, it was noted that from this month, Secondary Schools and sixth forms across this country are going to be ‘Targeted’ by BBC Journalists:
‘in an attempt to go into schools to speak to young people and give them the equipment they need to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false….”
Is it a coincidence that this is being implemented in the same month that a BBC news team was captured on video admitting that they were going to report on a mostly peaceful, non-political march organised by the FLA against terrorism and extremism in the centre of Birmingham, as being an ‘Extreme Right Wing Event’, and which despite the gathering being nothing of the sort, did not prevent other left-wing Anti Racist media outlets and groups labeling it as being:
‘avowedly racist and Islamophobic. The sharp trajectory rightwards that Stand up to Racism has repeatedly warned of was clearly visible’.
So what exactly are the BBC going to be teaching our kids?
How to identify genuine instances of ‘Fake News’ …. or to adhere to the official narrative being peddled by the mass media arm of the state and attack anyone who questions it?
‘The BBC is launching a new scheme to help young people identify real news and filter out fake or false information.
The project is targeted at secondary schools and sixth forms across the UK.
From March, up to 1,000 schools will be offered mentoring in class and online to help them spot so-called fake news.
BBC journalists including Kamal Ahmed, Tina Daheley, Amol Rajan and Huw Edwards will also take part in events aimed at helping students.
James Harding, the director of BBC News, said: “This is an attempt to go into schools to speak to young people and give them the equipment they need to distinguish between what’s true and what’s false.”
The move follows a year-long study, conducted by the University of Salford in conjunction with BBC Newsround, looking at how well children aged between 9 and 14 can spot false information.
Although most of the children from across all age groups said they knew what fake news was, many of them could not always distinguish between fake and real stories when presented with them.’
