When George Orwell wrote about the Ministry of Information in 1984 he was reporting his own personal experience of working for the BBC.
Almost every event of any significance of the last 6years has gone unreported by the BBC. I think particularly of the lead up to the overthrow of Gaddafi at the hands of foreign mercenaries in response to his threat to sell oil in gold. Just one significant example. The situation in Syria, as pointed out by Knight of Shadows, is another prime example.
Oh my God I cant believe it. I actually agree with you on something Cornelius!
I can see a problem coming because while our UK news and media outlets spout their usual rubbish our people are free to go onto other nations internet news sites to get a different perspective.
