    Fake news from Britain

    No, it's not only the Bush regime which uses fake news, as this piece, from Common Dreams informs us:

    The British Satellite News website says it is "a free television news and features service." It looks like an ordinary news website, though its lack of copyright protection might raise some questions in alert journalists. Broadcasters can put BSN material "directly into daily news programs." In fact, BSN is provided by World Television, a company that also makes corporate videos and fake news clips for corporations such as GlaxoSmithKline, BP, and Nestlé. It also produced "Towards Freedom" Television on behalf of the UK government. This was a propaganda program broadcast in Iraq by US army psychological-operations teams from a specially adapted aircraft in 2003-04.
