An example of state news censorship

Why can we not see an in depth interview like this on a British television channel? Just why do we have to rely on a foreign news service, in this case Russia Today?

Is there something "they" don't want us to know?

I find myself watching RT more than the Beeb or Sky lately WfW.

Watching early morning BBC news is like watching Blue Peter.

WfW, we all know that the godawful bbc will never show anything that is anti-EU. I've watched RT quite often over the past few months and despite coming from a country that has its own censorship problems regarding domestic matters, it covers international issues rather well. I like the Max Keiser report too, but he does seem to have a bias towards global warming. Nigel Farage, as usual, speaks lots of commonsense and shows the EU for what it really is. Mr Cameron has exposed himself since becoming prime minister, as a EU lackey as is the case for the vast majority of MPs and members of the HoL.

"...those countries would not, indeed could not, go to war in Libya without the EU council's approval."
This is staggering in it's implications.

B/jic: Exactly! See next post please?

k: Glad you also picked up on that statement! It really does beggar belief, doesn't it? Oh, I forgot - Cameron governs our country (not)!

I know that RT has its own agenda, but then again, isn't it a jolly good job that it has?

What Farage said is the stuff that a Prime Minister in charge of a powerful, assured, and nationally self-interesed Britain would say.
