Oliver Kamm Launches Evidence Free Attack on Real Journalist, Academic and Politician.

There is something that the repulsive Oliver Kamm doesn’t seem to grasp: whenever there is instigated another desperate ‘expose’ of Vanessa Beeley, Piers Robinson and the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (the latest attack focuses on the group’s David Miller and suspended Labour MP Chris Williamson) it simply proves to all of us who support their vital work, […]

What Channel 4 News Refused to Tell You About the Gilet Jaunes: Email

I recently sent an email to several journalists at Channel 4 News regarding their reporting of the Gilet Jaunes movement in France. I chose Channel 4 News for the very same reasons I have written about in detail previously: the programme presents itself as uniquely radical in the mainstream media, a lie that it is vitally important to expose because […]

Drink Coke? Then You Support the Murder of Humans And Animals

Fancy a Diet Coke? – ‘The lawsuits charged that Coca-Cola bottlers “contracted with. or otherwise directed, paramilitary security forces that utilized extreme violence and murdered, tortured, unlawfully detained or otherwise silenced trade union leaders.” The lawsuits and campaign were developed to force Coca-Cola to once and for all end further bloodshed, compensate victims and provide safe working conditions.’ ‘The […]

Jon Snow and the Murdered Children: His Six-Figure Salary Cannot Buy a Clear Conscience

I have just heard some news which is almost too heartbreaking to put into words. This morning, a little boy, Marcel Shadi Nemeh, died of his wounds in hospital after sustaining them last Sunday in an attack by Nusra Front terrorists on his home in Skeilbiyyeh, Syria. In that same attack, his brother Bashar was killed, along with three other children who were innocently playing in a monastery courtyard and some in their own homes.

BSNews correspondence with BBC’s Kirsty Wark on Assange

In December 2010 I watched an interview with Julian Assange conducted by Newsnight’s Kirsty Wark. See for yourselves below how it was conducted, with Wark pressing the ‘sexual offender in danger of absconding’ line repeatedly even as Assange attempted to explain that he had stayed in Sweden for five weeks after the allegations emerged and only left after seeking permission […]

Eva Bartlett Interviews Ibrahim, Syrian Army Volunteer

Brilliant independent journalist, Eva Bartlett, is at this moment in Aleppo bringing us more outstanding journalism on the Syrian conflict.

Video: Hezbollah Warns Israel: ‘If You Dare Attack, You Will Regret it’

On the evening of Friday, November 30, Hezbollah’s war media broadcasted this video addressed to Israel and subtitled in Hebrew, in response to recent Israeli military exercises simulating an aggression against southern Lebanon, an escalation of violations of Lebanese airspace –from which aggressions against Syria are usually carried out– by Israeli drones, and new threats to assassinate Hezbollah Secretary General. The […]

BSNews Person of the Year for 2018 – Vanessa Beeley

The photograph above shows independent journalist, Vanessa Beeley and Shade Shhde whose three children, wife and mother were all killed in the massacre at Mhardeh, Syria – an outrage ignored by the West’s corporate media. Shade is giving Vanessa the bracelet his eldest daughter used to wear. This almost unbearably moving gesture is a grieving man’s way of demonstrating how much […]
