    The BBC and other prominent western media institutions are imperial propaganda agencies say government ministers in Zimbabwe and Azania (South Africa).

    Zimbabwe’s Minister of Information and Publicity, Cde Sikhanyiso Ndlovu, exposed the BBC and CNN after they attempted to censor Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s speech at the recent United Nations General Assembly in New York despite covering the entirety of U.S. President George W. Bush’s speech in support of his belligerent anti-African attacks.

    Cde Ndlovu said the institutions are "nothing but imperial racist media tools” which claim but fail to give balanced information. He continued; “I would like to praise our media here which is by far better than the CNN and BBC. I [now] know why my predecessors threw them out of Zimbabwe".

    Great Post!!!!

    Some more:

    "...The Zimbabwean government is not the only African nation to fall foul of the BBC’s aggressive anti-African propaganda. In February 2007, the Government of Azania (South Africa) likened the BBC to “the most die-hard racists in our country” after a television report by BBC Wold Affairs Editor, John Simpson characterised the entire South African nation as a ‘crime ridden’ country ‘struggling to tackle violent crime’...
    ...The irony could not be greater. Throughout 2007 the British media has been saturated with news reports about the obscenely high level of violent crime committed particularly against young people. Accessing child pornography online and incidents of paedophilia are also rife in the UK with one in nine pre-teenage children experiencing abuse. Currently between one and two children die every week as a result of abuse or neglect. This is in addition to the scandals of high level government corruption such as the cash for honours debacle, numerous stories of corporate fraud with the most damning of all being the undermining of democracy when the rule of law was set aside in order to cover up the BAE corruption scandal by the former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair and his friend and then Attorney General, Peter Goldsmith. Goldsmith is the man responsible for giving Blair the ‘legal’ advice which was crucial in sanctioning Britain's involvement with the US for their illegal occupation of Iraq....."

    The media always tries to high-light and enlarge others problems but never shed light upon themselves.
