Press TV and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
OK. Ofcom, those stuck up anti-funsters, decide to censure Press TV for airing an interview with a jailed Iranian journalist which they received, according to the CST blog, “through force”.
What’s the appropriate response to such attention?
Well, according to Press TV, publishing an article by Mark Dankoff, friend of lapsed Nazi David Duke, formerly of the KKK.
That’s pretty bad form – particularly from a news source said to be waiting in the wings where the BBC world service, for example, is losing its hegemony.
But wait – his article cites the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion as a legitimate source.
Yep. In a piece about Ofcom of being part of some horrible plot, the author uses protocol #7 as a reasonable authority with which to point the finger at censorship.
Imagine, if you will, Lee John Barnes, a former BNP lackey, and oddball of Pagan symbolism, receiving a BBC commission for writing about Hugo Chavez’ decision to cut off RCTV.
I’m all for counter-hegemony, especially in the MSM, but let’s remember this, and let’s not get silly.
