In an apparent attempt to provide substantiation to the pundits and analysts who’s purpose it would seem has less to do with journalism and much more to do with disinformation and propaganda, BBC was the source of yet another lie and probably the photo-shopped pictures widely
circulated on social media of IRGC Major General Qassem Soleimani Commander of Quds Forces being personally in Yemen assumably providing assistance to the Houthi movement which has risen as a political and military challenge to the corrupt western backed regime of former president Hadi. The false western narrative that Iran is trying to “takeover” Yemen was bolstered with false reports that Iran has “boots on the ground.”
BBC has in the past abandoned any attempt to presume journalistic integrity, frequently citing hysterical reports of Russian invasions, assasinations and spewing a steady stream of propaganda fed to it from their curators in Washington.
This is a demonstation of total disregard and disdain for the public.
A free press which, in a functional democracy is designed to serve as a watch dog has become the banksters/warmongers lapdog.
