BBC Writer Advocates Murder Over Democratic Free Speech

Writer chosen to write Assange-inspired comedy advocates murder over democratic free speech in production due to be broadcast in the run-up to the general election. And that’s the way the BBC works, because every little bit helps.

BBC propaganda writer Thom Phipps lets it slip.

“if the met want to regain my trust they should drag Assange out the embassy + shoot him in the back of th head in the middle of traf square” – Writer Thom Phipps’ tweet https://twitter.com/thwphipps/status/236073062531997696

“Written by Thom Phipps and Peter Bowden, the comedy is part of a BBC season next year called Taking Liberties, celebrating 800 years of Magna Carta and exploring democracy in the run-up to the general election.” – http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/dec/11/ben-miller-bbc4-comedy-asylum-julian-assange

Propaganda works best when its subtlety woven into the media fabric.

UPDATE:
Noticing he’d been rumbled, Thom Phipps removed the guilty tweet. But before he did, we took a full screenshot and present it for you here – please share. Download Thom Phipps’ Guilty Tweet
