    There are local news stations owned by a corporation that actually warns people against big news outlets spreading a fixed narrative that benefits a select group and calls them "a threat to our democracy." With all the news outlet shills out there calling everything fake news, I think we should just not trust lying news outlets in general and use this thing called critical thinking and exercise that wonderful ability ourselves. When you don't rely on your own critical thinking and do your research you are in danger if mutating into a brainless animal like a sheep or tax cattle. (The more you know…)

    BBC is the biggest source of misinformation, you're just puppets of politicians and their agendas. If you want to know the truth about coronavirus, the LAST place to go to is mainstream media – just a bunch of fear-mongering, deceiving nonsense. Listen to doctors, nurses and professors like Dr. Rashid Buttar, Prof. Michael Levitt, Dr. Knut Wittowski, Dr. Shiva Ayuddarai, Erin Marie Olszewski, Dr. Daniel Erickson – WHICH NONE OF THEM are getting a voice in the media despite their credentials, hmm..

    The BBC spreads misinformation like there's no tomorrow. They said that masks are useless against Coronavirus and now they are complaining that doctors don't have enough masks!

    We need an app to report bbc biased fake news. The BBC were great at passing on biased information during brexit and the election , so can’t take this clip seriously based on prior performance. Isn’t news supposed to be just providing unbiased facts ?

    Medical staff all over the world have now been restricted from sharing information about this virus because of these freedom of speech internet restrictions. The excusess for it are beyond pathetic in this video aswell. The examples used, hot drinks, sunshine and lions….If you drink hot drinks it does significantly help with respiratory infections, especially a hot cup of half a lemon, manuka honey, green tea and ginger. If you get natural sunlight it significantly boosts your levels of vitamin d, thus boosting your immune system. This is good advice for people with mild symptoms. If you believe lions are patrolling the streets in Russia then you will believe anything. Unfortunately this wasn't a April fools joke and is for real. Wake the fuck up.

    Why doesn't Whatsapp & Facebook put some sort of unique IDs in each generafed new message & a counter mechanism in its servers to keep record of how many times that ID goes through servers. Once it reaches say 600-700 forward a copy to one of authenticators who can then decide whether to block any further transmission. Not really a rocket science.

    There is no such thing as journalism in mainstream media. It is just a medium for the powers that be to spread the narrative, misinform and manipulate peoples perception thus controlling behaviour.

    THE RELIABLE BBC WHO COVER UP AND SUPPORT PAEDOPHILES.

    WHO REPORTED THAT SADDAM HUSSEIN HAD WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.

    WHO STATED THE RUSSIANS HACKED OUR ELECTIONS.

    THE BBC COVERED UP GROOMING GANGS AND CHILD ABUSE FOR DECADE'S.

    THE GOOD OLD BBC REPORTED TOWER 2 OF THE TWIN TOWERS, FALLING CIRCA 15 MINUTES BEFORE IT HAPPENED.

    WHO ENFORCE THE TELEVISION LICENCE FEE BY METHODS OF MENACE, DECEPTION AND THREATS TO SPREAD AN AIR OF FEAR AMONGST SOCIETY.

    WELCOME TO THE BBC..

    WHERE CORRUPT POLICTICAL AGENDA SCORES AS OUR TOP PRIORITY.

    HERE'S A GREAT TIP FOLKS.

    1, STOP WATCHING THE BBC.
    2, DON'T BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT.
    3, USE NEWSPAPER FOR SPARE TOILET USAGE.
    4, NEVER TAKE ANYTHING BROADCAST FROM THE USA AS BEING TRUTHFUL.
    5, ALWAYS CONDUCT YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH.

    As a researcher in medical sciences for over 30 years, I have concerns about anyone who claims to know what is correct and not with a novel virus. The BBC may claim it is a trusted source but it is highly political and partisan in news reporting so I think it has lost credibility as a reliable source. As for WHO, they reported early in the pandemic that e.g. COVID-19 was not transmissable from human to human – a critical "misinterpretation" of the facts – so I really don't think we can trust that source either. This reporter says that claims that sunlight kills COVID-19 is incorrect, but actually we don't know that. Sunlight can kill viruses and the efficacy depends on for example, temperature, altitude, humidity, atmouspheric path length and exposure time. As we all know, prolonged sunlight kills human skin cells and UVC radiation in particular can disrupt viral protein structure. I suspect that prolonged and direct exposure of coronaviruses to a hot sun would inactivate them but there is as yet little evidence for that because no-one has done the studies. In my experience, the BBC, CNN etc. spread a lot of fake information in the political, current affairs domain so I would suggest getting advice from scientists and doctors who are in the front line of this pandemic and who have no political or ideological agenda.

    Here is a fake news BBC would not tell you: Dr. Li Wenliang is NOT a whistle blower
    "On Dec 30, 2019, Li Wenliang sent a message to a group of fellow doctors warning them about a possible outbreak of an illness that resembled severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, where he worked."
    @t
    "On 31 December 2019, the WHO China Country Office was informed of cases of pneumonia of unknown etiology (unknown cause) detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China."
    @t
    So how is he a whistle blower when WHO was informed the next day? He was NOT arrested either as American and UK media reported. Li was reprimanded by Chinese authorities for rumour mongering because at that time there was insufficient evidence if indeed what he shared on social media was true. Imagine if what he did caused panic in Wuhan and residents fled the city en masse, the spread of covid 19 would have been so much worse.

    does anyone else remember during the cold war bbc said that when farmers hear the 3 minute warning of nuclear attack, they should run to the fields and tie tarpaulins on all the cows.. because that would totally protect them from the atomic blast

    Mainstream media is just another arm of government that enslaves us all. You're seeing the effects of a red pill in real-time. Are you going to take the blue pill and continue this lie?

    'if your not sure if the whole post is true'.. oh BBC, have this mirror
    (love the joke right at the end of the video, cracked me up :P)

    'pictures taken out of context' .. and again, you would know all about that BBC 😛
    (*example, start of the yellow vests, there where images of them setting alight to a building. what the bbc forgot to point out was… that was the building the BBC was in – yellow vest moment was /is still going on, taking a brake cus of the virus.. BBC never covered in 1+ years of constant protest*)

    now i'm not saying the BBC is being misleading on current advice, but on past information, provably so

    there is also a lot of important news out there on this subject that the BBC is not covering. Normally stories that show china in a bad light (returned test kits and so on ). They will bash Trump and the Brazilian guy.. and cover up for china… what's that all about?
