Reader’s Comment of the Day: BBC conspiracy theorists think Cologne was a put-up job


In response to Jane Kelly: Feminist BBC would rather canonise Bowie than admit the ugly truth of Cologne, realfish wrote:

Perhaps, Jane you might have had enough on Sunday morning when the BBC’s Hugh Sykes thought that as part of his report from Cologne, for Broadcasting House, it would be worth mentioning that:

‘…and there are conspiracy theories in the air that the New Year’s Eve attackers were encouraged to make sexual approaches to German women, told that it was the normal thing to do on New Year’s Eve. If true, they may have fallen into a well-laid trap…’

No attribution at all, no evidence at all, but a conspiracy theory worth building on. Once again the BBC employ their, ‘some people say’, tactic to rubbish an argument, a person or as a device to shape the story in the way that they determine.

The BBC is a dishonest organisation that has lost its integrity.
