#disinformation, #fake news, #foreign influence.
BBC has definitely joined the FAKE NEWS bandwagon. By juxtaposing a paragraph on “real threat” from Neo-Nazi extremism and another paragraph on the “sleeper cells” under some unrelated foreign control (https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-24/asio-director-general-mike-burgess-neo-nazi-threat-rising/11994178?pfmredir=sm), BBC created the impression that some extreme right country (defunct Nazi Germany? or one of its new follower countries, if any?) is controlling the sleeper cells.
Australia’s intelligence chief has warned of a “real threat” to the country’s security from neo-Nazis.
ASIO Director General Mike Burgess said “small cells” of right-wing extremists were meeting regularly to salute Nazi flags and share their ideology.
He said the threat from foreign espionage was also now higher than during the Cold War.
And he revealed that a foreign “sleeper agent” had been planted in Australia and conducted espionage for some years.
After a long period of dormancy, the agent had started feeding information to handlers and causing problems for dissidents from their country of origin, before being caught, Mr Burgess said.
He did not specify which country had planted the agent. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-51621679
I would give BBC a mark of 80/100 for such propaganda work (The power of propaganda: Fake news, Biased news.).
I wonder what the UK Prime Minister would think of that.
