The BBC Has Lost Its Former Aura of an Impartial Media
Recently, the CCP acts very actively on the stage of foreign trade, so, fawning reports appear one after another in some media. Among them, the British authoritative media BBC has a report The Chinese Cult that Kills “Demons,” which is after the CCP’s heart’s desire. However, when those who like the voice of justice roughly look at the fabricated plot, they couldn’t believe that it’s actually published by the BBC. This British broadcasting media which has a history of over ninety years should have had a sharp eye. How can it suddenly not see things clearly? Even the public knows that one can’t draw a final conclusion only after listening to a one-sided statement.

For many years, in the hearts of the people of all countries, the BBC, for taking not fearing power, upholding justice, reporting the truth of the fact objectively, respecting religious belief, and so on, as its aim, is judged one of the media most respected worldwide. But on August 14, 2014, a report in the BBC Chinese website greatly disappoints many net friends who deeply trust the BBC. Particularly, some parts in this article that are not objective make the sensible net friends begin to red light the trust towards the BBC.
As the Christians of the Church of Almighty God, we are shocked by this report of the BBC even more greatly. Next let’s look at the problems in this report together.
I. The title of this article is “A Report on the Spot: The Chinese cult that kills ‘demons.’” Before writing this article, has the author Carrie really made an on-the-spot investigation in the Church of Almighty God? If not, how much can this article be trusted? We believers in God mainly strive to have our life disposition transformed through reading Almighty God’s word and understanding the truth. God requires us to have conscience and sense in our living out, to be forbearing, patient, and tolerant, and so on, and in the end to live out the likeness of a real man. Whether others are “demons” or not is not the subject of our life entering in and it has nothing to do with us. So, with us there is not such an absurd saying of “killing demons.” But the two men mentioned in the article both say that Continue reading
News should reflect the true picture of an incident. Thus it is of the utmost importance to report the news with honesty, fairness, and impartiality. How the BBC reports it directly affects how people understand and view the events. If the BBC does not uphold impartiality and fairness it will mislead the public and even defame or slander an innocent party. Unfortunately, this is what the BBC has done.
Upon seeing the May 28, 2014 report condemning the Church of Almighty God and its members as the perpetrators and also the report previously published on August 13, 2014 again reinforcing the implication that the Church of Almighty God is responsible and even trains the members of the Church to instigate such actions from the Zhaoyuan case or in destroying families. However, in the report, there was no investigation other than taking the word of the Communist Party, and the outcome is that the BBC has reported what was told to them by a brutal, inhuman regime in China, that is represented by the CCP, acting as the mouthpiece of a political party that is more devilish than the Nazi Party and which symbols and even membership is banned in many areas of the world because wherever the CCP goes, people will suffer numerous disasters. The BBC must know that. So why would it support the CCP? Does it mean that the BBC now stands for “Better Believe Communism”?
What has happened to the BBC Editorial Guidelines? Where was the independent investigation? Why only show one side of the story? Is there still fairness or openminded-ness? Continue reading
