JOHN Sweeney, the BBC reporter who is currently at the centre of major ‘fake news’ allegations, once reported on Russia’s uses propaganda to discredit opponents… for Panorama. Yes, really.
A Panorama investigation claimed to have revealed how the Russian state used its surveillance and propaganda to discredit critics of President Putin.
Opposition activists in Russia accused the Kremlin of using the security services and state-controlled TV to attack them – just like the BBC does to its homeland rivals like Tommy Robinson.
They even reported that when BBC Panorama went to Russia to investigate their claims, the same tactics were even used against their reporter John Sweeney.
Tommy Robinson highlighted the details on social media, writing: “BBC and Sweeney calling out Russia for propaganda when they are caught on camera inventing fake news and suggesting they can clip and edit footage to paint a different picture of events.”
“Total fake news hypocrites.”
His major new documentary, Panodrama that was premiered over the weekend outside the BBC’s offices in Salford was well received and picked up mass media attention.
Greater Manchester Police estimated that around 4,000 people turned out, event organisers claim more.
A rival far-left event against Tommy saw around 500 turn up as they chanted ‘Nazi Scum of our Streets’ and other slurs against a group of everyday working-class men, women and children.
The event passed off peacefully with few major outbreaks of violence, the thousands-strong crowds listened to speeches from UKIP leader Gerard Batten, Aussie Avi Yemeni and Rebel media’s Ezra Levant before the premiere of Tommy’s groundbreaking documentary that finally exposed the BBC and Hope Not Hate for what they are. Leftist Fake News.
Gerard Batten told the rally that Tommy “speaks up for things that are right, he tells the truth and he can mobilise lots of people like you, and that’s what they fear”.
The main focus of the event was a blockbuster expose on the BBC’s Panorama documentary strand, that has been working to ‘bring down Tommy Robinson.’
Despite the BBC’s promise of Panorama following the BBC’s “strict editorial guidelines”, Mr Robinson along with the help of former employees exposed Panorama’s journalist John Sweeney, as he attempted to create false narratives and sued racial, homophobic and anti-working class slurs and fleeced taxpayers of their Licence Fee cash with lavish lunches.
Sweeney along with Hope Not Hate allegedly tried to force an ex-employee of Robinson to allege ‘Harvey Weinstein Style’ sexual abuse, all of the fake news was caught by undercover cameras.
Speaking about a guest in the BBC Newsnight Greenroom, Sweeny said: “I met Danny, I was working on some film on Newsnight.
“It was so unusual to meet a white working class male in the Newsnight greenroom that me and one of my mates went down to have a drink with him.”
Sweeney went on: “In the way, you would do with somebody from, you know, a CANNIBAL from the Amazonia.. erm Amazon or creature from outer-space.’
Tommy Robinson told Sweeney that he was “classist and elitist.”
Sweeney also revealed that one of his political heroes was the former head of the IRA terror group, Martin McGuinness.
The BBC said in response: “BBC spokeswoman said: “The BBC strongly rejects any suggestion that our journalism is ‘faked’ or biased.
“Any programme we broadcast will adhere to the BBC’s strict editorial guidelines.
“Some of the footage which has been released was recorded without our knowledge during this investigation and John Sweeney made some offensive and inappropriate remarks, for which he apologises. BBC Panorama’s investigation will continue.”
