The Thursday Thesis - 2/4/2020, updated
Am I alone in noticing that the BBC has abandoned any pretence of being anything other than a single-issue propaganda channel?
If you apply what I call “Precision Listening” it’s obvious.
All you have to do is listen very carefully to what’s being said.
Listen to the words used to convey the underlying message, because the words are often deceptive, and this is no accident.
State broadcasters employ the best writers to carefully craft news scripts: the words are carefully selected, ordered and tickled to do a very particular job and to convey a very particular message.
So – for those who understand that the words used (what Noam Chomsky called the “surface structure” of communication) can greatly modify the message conveyed (the “deep structure”) these are interesting times.
For weeks it has been ramping-up COVID-19 stories, progressively giving over more and more time in bulletins until we’ve finally arrived at today – where every minute of the BBC’s “news” coverage is scary stories and inflammatory opinion on the speed, severity and deadliness of this bogeyman virus.
If you ever suspected that there was an agenda being peddled by our state-funded (state-controlled) broadcaster, Precision Listening and recent events will confirm your suspicions.
Listen closely to the weasel-words in the scary stories and you’ll begin to notice that daily mortality figures are now referred to as “connected with COVID-19”.
Hang on a second – only a couple of weeks ago this COVID-19 was being portrayed as a deadly killer, but now it seems to be only a component in a death.
This sinister shift to weasel-words looks like a guilty person backing away from what they’ve done; for whatever reason, the Beeb has moved its position by changing the words of its carefully-prepared script.
And here’s a little quote from the Office of National Statistics, from their bulletin dated 7 April 2020:
“Looking at the year-to-date (using refreshed data to get the most accurate estimates), the number of deaths is currently lower than the five-year average. The current number of deaths is 150,047, which is 3,350 fewer than the five-year average. Of the deaths registered by 27 March 2020, 647 mentioned the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the death certificate; this is 0.4% of all deaths.”
I kid you not – in the midst of this appalling, scaremongered “pandemic”, FEWER people are dying than the average for the previous five-year period. That’s the overview of REALITY, not the twisted, stilted and distorted story we’re being fed by the state’s media mouthpiece.
Consider this fact - from the ONS's figures: deaths from "Flu and pneumonia" are down, whilst COVID-19 deaths are up.
The numbers nett-out to the normal rate for this time of year.
So the question must arise: is COVID-19 simply a bad strain of 'flu?
What do you think?
You won't find the answer in the Government briefings, the Fake News or the Weasel-Words of the mendacious bastards at the BBC.
