When will the BBC learn not to try and slip in the truth where propoganda would be so much more appropriate.
Such as in its series The Truth About Drugs, which actually contains the word ‘truth’. Now, while we were worried about watching this show in case it ruined our buzz, thinking it would just trot out all the old hysterical scare stories about a drug use, it did, in fact, try to tell the truth. *looks up ‘truth’ in dictionary and finds ‘stuff which is true’*
Truths such as ‘cocaine gives you confidence’ and ‘ecstasy makes you want to dance’ and ‘Junior Disprin can help with mild headache symptoms’… How dare they ‘glamourise’ drug use in this way?
In the episode on cocaine, according to The DC, which is inevitably frothing at the fanny, one taker is heard saying, ‘I can feel it buzzing me – buzzing!’ And other misleading evidence.
Twelve people (count them as they all get into a Mini Cooper) complained about the programme, a level of complaint The DC describes as ‘slammed’ as in ‘BBC slammed for How Drugs Work show which ‘glamorises’ illegal substances’
Honestly, those people need to smoke some decent weed and just chilax. Man.
Her Majesty's BBC slammed by The Daily Cunt for telling the truth. What is the world coming to? The truth? From a news organisation?,
