Let’s make a drama about pederasts

by:

Channel 4 to make Operation Yewtree drama about household name accused of historic sex offences

National Treasure will be penned by This Is England co-writer Paul Thorne and is inspired by the downfall of shamed stars Jimmy Savile, Rolf Harris and Stuart Hall

In recent years we’ve been bombarded with revelations about the historic sex offences of people in the public eye and the lives that they’ve destroyed.

“This fictional drama explores the emotional impact on both a family that finds itself in the eye of such a media story, and on the accuser.”

It will be penned by This Is England co-writer Paul Thorne (?)

I looked him up. Paul Thorne is a comedian. Not the same guy as Jack Thorne

 

this is nudging by the media – from newspaper thro TV ‘programme’

an attempt to manipulate public perception

thro obfuscation and confused messages, so that people

feel sorry for celebs – forget about current politicians

and the survivor/victim becomes the baddie

It shows they’re desperate doesn’t it?

BBC: People Can’t Live Without the BBC

BBC: People Can’t Live Without the BBC

Via Guido

A “deprivation study” in which  people agreed not to use BBC services for nine days has found that people can’t live without the BBC. The study was commissioned by and funded by the BBC…

(I’m still laughing)

Of the seventy households, 48 had initially said that they would prefer either to pay no licence fee and have no BBC access, or pay a reduced licence fee. After nine days without any access to the corporation, however, 33 of the 48 families, or 69 per cent, declared that they were now happy to pay.

The BBC commissioned the study to dig deeper into existing research that suggests that around 30 per cent of people are opposed to paying the licence fee. It would appear to confirm suspicions held at a high level in the corporation that many viewers do not realise how much they depend on the broadcaster’s output.

 

So 48 families = 68.5% of the households surveyed (who originally DIDN’T want to pay)

22 households/families = 31.5% – DID want to pay

Which (from the latest sample) means that ‘existing research’ underreported those opposed to paying a fee by 38.5%? (68.5%-30%)

33 of 48 families changed their mind, so (33+22) = 55 households eventually happy to pay.

55 out of 70 = 78.5%.

So 21.5% still DON’T want to pay?

Which (from the latest sample) means that ‘existing research’ over-reported those opposed to paying a fee by 8.5%? (21.5%-30%)

So can we deduce that both surveys have a potential margin of error in their results? (i.e 38.5% – 8.5%= 30%)?

If we apply the possible 30% margin of error to the 21.5% that DON’T want to pay –

then that could mean that 28% (or 19.6 families from survey 2, v 21 families from survey 1) DON’T want to pay?

Which only goes to prove if you torture the data enough  – it’ll confess to anything.

with apologies to statisticians

 

BBC among broadcasters to repeatedly breach Ofcom code over propaganda content

BBC among broadcasters to repeatedly breach Ofcom code over propaganda content

by Ian Burrell – Independent

International broadcasters including the BBC repeatedly broke the Ofcom code by screening programmes funded by foreign governments, charities and NGOs, an investigation has revealed.

The media regulator discovered a series of contraventions of its impartiality guidelines and found hundreds of nominal-fee programmes  had been paid for by bodies ranging from United Nations departments to the Indonesian ministry of trade and a Cambodian casino firm.

It said the practice carried “inherent risk to independence and editorial integrity” and it has ordered an “industry-wide” meeting of news networks to address the matter.

The BBC was found to have breached Ofcom’s code on sponsorship 20 times on its World News channel, where it featured programmes underwritten by funders ranging from the Aga Khan Foundation to the International Diabetes Foundation and the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation.

Hi there,

I’m a reporter at BBC Newsnight. We’re looking into allegations of sexual abuse at children’s homes in the 1970s/80s at the moment. I saw some interesting research about this on your website. Could someone at the organisation possibly give me a call to discuss how you might be able to help us out?

Certainly, I am happy to let you know all the info I have been told over the years. From Harvey Proctor, Leon Britain, Cliff Richard, Ted Heath, Kenneth Clarke, associates like those that helped in the transport such as the helicopters involved in the Westland Affair, driving VIP’s to Children’s homes. Jeffery Archer and another can’t remember the name just now who bought the tie shop for Proctor to hush him up… all sorts. Anyway the main one was a guest House in Barnes and I named all those people apart from Kenneth Clarke where there is no evidence of him being involved in anything just gossip about him having kids to mentally ill patients in hospitals.

This industry is so old fashioned now and I am glad that it is being smashed to bits,. Sentencing needs to be life to really do the deed!!!

I am very busy this week but perhaps at the weekend I can get back to you with anything I have it’s just the case files are all in storage.

Best

Jo

BUSTED : TV chiefs cooked up letter of support from stars

BUSTED : TV chiefs cooked up letter of support from stars

The BBC was accused of deceit last night after it denied orchestrating a celebrity letter to the Prime Minister backing the Corporation.

Despite overwhelming evidence that Danny Cohen, its director of television, masterminded the involvement of signatories, the BBC repeatedly refused to admit its involvement.

Last night MPs demanded an investigation into whether Mr Cohen had broken BBC rules by secretly asking a host of its stars to front Tuesday night’s open letter to David Cameron.

The BBC has been accused of deceit after it denied orchestrating a celebrity letter backing the Corporation, despite Danny Cohen (left with wife Noreena Hertz) and James Purnell (right) both being linked to the protest

James Purnell, the BBC’s head of strategy – who also happens to be a former Labour minister under Gordon Brown – was also linked to what was initially presented as an independent protest.

Signed by 29 actors, presenters and writers – including Dame Judi Dench, Graham Norton and Stephen Fry – it urged the Prime Minister to stop the BBC being ‘diminished’.

The Daily Mail asked the BBC five times where the letter came from. The BBC insisted – repeatedly – that the letter came from the stars themselves, and said it did not ‘know about the origins of writing it’.

Aviation expert warns ‘we will never know what happened’ to missing MH370 plane

Aviation expert warns ‘we will never know what happened’ to missing MH370 plane

How and why the Boeing 777 vanished with 239 people on board is likely to remain unknown unless wreckage from the aircraft is located.

The stark warning from the head of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) suggests the hunt to find the missing jet is more important than ever – both for the families of those lost in the tragedy and for future flight safety.

The stricken plane disappeared from radar shortly after taking off on March 8 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

And ICAO secretary-general Raymond Benjamin told The Straits Times confusion still dominated the investigation into the downed airliner.

He said: “We don’t know what exactly happened in the cockpit so we don’t know if it was a security issue or a safety issue.

“We have never had a situation where an aircraft flew for seven hours before crashing. Without the aircraft wreckage, we don’t know.”

Dame leading Jimmy Savile probe asks why BBC didn’t investigate him even though one of its own shows asked if he was a paedophile

Dame leading Jimmy Savile probe asks why BBC didn’t investigate him even though one of its own shows asked if he was a paedophile

A brief reminder on Dame Janet Smith – and her ‘conflicts of interest’

http://loucollins.uk/2015/06/06/savile-bbc-as-it-happened/

According to the nooz…

Dame Janet Smith is conducting a review into how Savile was able to carry out sexual abuse of children and adults while at the corportation.

But investigative website Exaro says she has voiced her concern about why the broadcaster failed to realise what was happening, despite hints of paedophilia in one of its own programmes 15 years ago.

They found that Dame Janet, a former Court of Appeal judge, has asked several BBC executives what enquiries were made about Savile as a result of a documentary about him presented by Louis Theroux.

In the programme, Mr Theroux explicitly referred to the ‘paedophile’ accusation against Savile, who at one time presented ‘Jim’ll Fix It.’

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3152392/Dame-leading-Jimmy-Savile-probe-asks-BBC-didn-t-investigate-one-shows-asked-paedophile.html

Is this really earth shattering revelationary news?

NO (OXI :))

The same  info was covered in the ‘Jimmy Savile outed as a paedo’ thread back in 2012 (RIP Anders)

Ofcom to take charge of BBC

Ofcom to take charge of BBC

The BBC Trust will be axed and its powers handed to the communications regulator Ofcom, Westminster sources have revealed.

For the first time in the broadcaster’s nearly century-long history, it will be governed by an external body, as part of the renegotiation of the BBC Charter.

The move is expected to be signalled in a Green Paper that will formally trigger Charter renewal negotiations within weeks.

It comes after John Whittingdale, the new Culture Secretary, insisted that he does not have a “vendetta” against the corporation but warned that it needed a “very robust system in place” to deal with issues of impartiality.

The move will mark a partial rejection of the proposals of Rona Fairhead, the chairman of the Trust, who earlier this year suggested it should be replaced with a new “bespoke” body dedicated to regulation of the BBC.

Ministers are instead planning an expanded remit for Ofcom, which also acts as the watchdog for the telecoms and commercial media industries.

BBC Explains ‘Not ‘Newsworthy’

BBC Explains ‘Not ‘Newsworthy’

A spokesperson from the BBC explained to Sputnik why certain portions of its Yanukovych interview, such as dealing with his personal zoo were aired while those dealing with political issues such as Crimea were not.

 The BBC spokesperson told Sputnik on Tuesday that it did not include ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s views on Crimea’s 2014 reunification with Russia because they were not considered “most newsworthy.”

The BBC instead featured remarks by Yanukovych on ostriches he maintained in his residence’s zoo in his first ever interview to the Western media since the coup which ousted him.

A search on the BBC news website for “Crimea” does not bring up the interview in question, in order to find it one has to search for the word “ostriches.”

BBC licence fee could be scrapped in ten years and replaced with a compulsory ‘household tax’ forcing EVERYONE to pay

BBC licence fee could be scrapped in ten years and replaced with a compulsory ‘household tax’ forcing EVERYONE to pay

Speaking on BBC1’s the Andrew Marr Show, Lord Hall said a ‘household tax’ – as proposed by the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee – was a ‘very interesting idea’.

He added there is broad agreement for the licence fee to be reformed to ensure ‘everyone is paying equally for it and I would go along with that’.

Lord Hall said the type of reform is up to the Government to decide and the BBC to debate, adding: ‘It could be a household tax, I don’t know whether that works or not.

The decision to move to a ‘Scandinavian’ model has probably already been taken. The change-over will come when it’s deemed that public indifference to a poll tax poses no threat to political careers.
