…and My Washing Machine Has Had It

Blog Forecast- Continued light posting until next week, but I did notice this piece of nonsense –Drones ‘kill dozens’ in Pakistan– masquerading as journalism on the BBC including variously-

  • local officials told the BBC
  • officials said
  • Officials say
  • according to local officials
  • US officials believe
  • Army spokesman, Maj Gen Athar Abbas, told reporters:
  • Analysts describe

Frankly it’s just not fair on the propagandists who rely on their paycheck from various governments and militaries if the BBC do their lying for them, surely there’s a Shills Union who can keep journalists off their turf?

PS. and yeah, anyone know of how to get the power company to cough up for the washing machine their power ‘issues’ caused to go kaput?
