The BBC is to assemble a team to fact check and debunk deliberately misleading and false stories masquerading as real news.
Amid growing concern among politicians and news organisations about the impact of false information online, news chief James Harding told staff on Thursday that the BBC would be “weighing in on the battle over lies, distortions and exaggerations”.
The plans will see the corporation’s Reality Check series become permanent, backed by a dedicated team targeting false stories or facts being shared widely on social media.
“The BBC can’t edit the internet, but we won’t stand aside either,” Harding said. “We will fact check the most popular outliers on Facebook, Instagram and other social media.
“We are working with Facebook, in particular, to see how we can be most effective. Where we see deliberately misleading stories masquerading as news, we’ll publish a Reality Check that says so.
“And we want Reality Check to be more than a public service, we want it to be hugely popular. We will aim to use styles and formats – online, on TV and on radio – that ensure the facts are more fascinating and grabby than the falsehoods.”
This is from the BBC, a (THE) major promulgator of the myth of man-made global warming/climate change as 'proven fact', when the whole 'theory' is riddled with outrageous lies. The BBC, who did so little to expose and bring Saville, and others, to justice. The BBC, that did its very best to cause our referendum on EU membership to result in a REMAIN vote. The BBC, that accepts large sums of money from the EU; that organisation that hasn't had its accounts properly audited and signed off for about 20 years now. The same BBC that approves the illegal harassment, continuous threatening, persecution, false prosecution and criminalisation of people who are legally TV Licence-free. “Reality Check team”? The BBC needs to look much closer to home.
The BBC's "education" of children:http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/clips/zchf6fr
Two aliens discover that we are making similar mistakes to ones made back on their ruined home planet, their mission: to discover how we can all learn to care for the environment. Focussing on global warming, the aliens beam down to a village in the Scottish Borders and meet a group of children. With help from the children and their shipboard computer 'SID' they learn that the increase in gases in our environment has resulted in what many call the greenhouse effect. They look at changes in weather over recent years which have resulted in more extreme weather events such as hurricanes and flooding.
