BBC CULTURAL CENSORSHIP

CLICK FOR LIST





Most of us are aware of the battle between the traditional media and bloggers regarding content which is generally politicized one way or the other. It is about political control and manipulation of public opinion.

Political control of the masses it appears, is now conducted to a large extent, by the media at the behest of huge agencies, with considerable resources. A free press, an important part of a genuine democracy, has been compromised. This is my principal interest in journalism.

My previous involvement in writing articles, of a harmless sporting nature in the BBC, included emails and phone calls from detectives, to desist from contributing, in what was a solely sporting debate. I am aware for quite some time, that British agencies have a particular interest in silencing people like me.

The extent of subtle but considerable censorship of our apparently free press, is to say the least alarming. They can be certain, that I will not continue to be censored in the future, on matters of importance to me.

I've been around trad music for 50 + years but I think this is my favourite song, the pipes solos make it special. Maith go leor !
