British Broadcasting Company (BBC)
The epitomy of mainstream media, the BBC, or the British Broadcasting Company, is the official television network of the United Kingdom. Established in 1922 as a controversial forced-conglomeration of broadcasters who were implementing the new radio frequency discovery, it was actually given its first Royal Charter in 1927, to bring the all six broadcasting companies under one corporate umbrella. This incorporation allowed for more centralized control over the transmission airwaves in the British Isles.
Today, the BBC is still the largest broadcasting corporation in the world and operates as a supposedly independent corporation under the control of a Director General who also serves as the Chair of the BBC Trust Oversight Board. Of course, it is anything but independent and is actually the chief mouthpiece of an Anglo-American power elite conspiracy to build world government. The BBC is entirely focused in its editorial policy on internationalization. It is effectively a promotional organ for one-world government.
The Royal Charter authorizing BBC operations is issued every ten years. The next charter end date is December of 2016. In addition to United Kingdom television and radio service, they also broadcast globally by satellite. The BBC was one of the founding broadcasters of the European Broadcasting Union in 1950 and held a monopoly on both television and radio broadcasts in the UK until 1955 when the ill-received ITV began operations.
The BBC was the standard in UK broadcasting until the deregulation of broadcasting in the 1980s and has since streamlined its operational strategy. Commercial competition was allowed with invention of satellite and cable technology and continues today with the broadband Internet explosion. The competition for viewers has also provided an open medium for others to broadcast criticism of the United Kingdom's governmental policies, creating controversy in editorial content. The BBC's primary competitor in the UK is British-based Sky Broadcasting.
Funding for the BBC is provided by a national household licensing fee assessed for any home using a television receiver. The BBC is now comprised of several channels that use specific programming content for each channel, including designated children's stations and the BBC Online channel. The BBC is headquartered in London but operates in various locations across the British Isles with news bureaus worldwide.
Having been under the control of the UK government from its inception, the BBC has been involved in continual controversies over all decades of operation. BBC News and BBC 4 are largely considered the official government news channels, rarely broadcasting news events or programs that are counter to the official governmental line. For over 50 years the MI5 is known to have had an operative working in management at the BBC. Files on broadcasters and individuals (including artists) were regularly labeled for suspicion as communist sympathizers. During the 1950s this even occurred with Sir Winston Churchill, as he had accused the BBC of the same association and was ultimately banned from the BBC for a period before World War II.
The implementation of the Armed Services Radio Network had helped fuel the controversy. Commercial European radio signals were also directed for British consumers with programming that was not complimentary to the government. This scenario opened the way for competing commercial broadcasters in the UK, as Churchill eventually became Prime Minister of Parliament.
Content control has been at the center of all of the controversies surrounding the BBC, exampled by the death of weapons expert Dr. David Kelly on the evening before he was to testify that the "weapons of mass destruction" perception being advanced by Washington, DC and by the British government was falsely enhanced, or "sexed up," to create populist support for the invasion of Iraq. Kelly's voice was silenced before he could indict both governments for collective perceptive propaganda. Kelly has since been determined correct.
The Hutton Report of 2004 determined that Kelly's death was a non-issue and essentially supported the official government line. Later in the same year, the Butler Report found that the intelligence was indeed faulty, if not an outright falsehood, and the initial Hutton Report was similar to the US 9/11 Commission Report that only considered what information it wanted to accept.
Both reports effectively absolved the governments of responsibility for implementing the governmental concept of "The Noble Lie," which was a Platonist philosophical concept that Plato was possibly coerced to keep from suffering the same fate as his mentor, Socrates. Dr. Leo Strauss had taught this concept to several members of the Bush Administration while they were training at the University of Chicago.
The BBC's impact on UK governmental policy is clearly being undermined by the overwhelming communication capacity of the Internet, which is also serving to be a significant tool as the mass population struggles to impede globalism and world government, a process we refer to as the Internet Reformation.
