UK Survey: 70% of People Polled Don’t Trust BBC’s Commentary on GMOs

Comment: why would you trust BBC reporting on anything when it has proven itself to be riven with bias and propaganda over and over? It's no different to CNN or Fox News it just has great production values and a British accent...

Do you trust the mainstream media (MSM)? The BBC, one of the UK’s biggest media companies, is just one example of an enormous media outlet turning to a dinosaur in the age of UFOs. A new survey reveals that almost 70% of the public doesn’t trust the station’s reporting on GMOs. More specifically, the public doesn’t trust the independence of experts featured on the programs.

The mainstream media has been struggling to stay relevant for a while now. As more individuals realize that the MSM’s reporting is slanted entirely to favor the cartels that run the world, and that there is the inability of these mega-companies to provide unbiased insight into real world issues, people turn instead to alternative news.

The ‘experts’ featured on BBC programs to discuss GMOs are not holding up to public scrutiny. Of more than 1000 people polled form both sides of the GMO debate, 667 of the responders said that the ‘authorities’ presented on programs like Panorama, Countryfile, and Radio 4’s Today were not so believable.

Just one of the latest BBC programs that was presented as an unbiased discussion on GMOs took a pro-GMO stance, and invited 3 experts with known ties to the development of GM technology.

As reported by
  • “Professor Jonathan Jones from the Sainsbury Laboratory owns several GM patents. He is the co-founder of several biotech companies and owns a company established to commercialize GM crops.
  • Anne Glover co-founded a biotech company before promoting GM technology in her recent role as chief scientific advisor to the EU President
  • Mark Lynas, a pro-GM advocate, is employed as part of the Cornell University’s programme to promote GMOs globally.”
