"The BBC isn’t exposing disinformation. It's peddling it" writes Jonathan Cook; he's 100% correct.
"Why the BBC is launching its Verify service is all too clear. Trust in the establishment media, and the BBC in particular, has hit an all-time low. That itself poses a threat to the broadcaster’s Reithian [*] purpose: to impress a national consensus on the public mind that serves the British state."
[*] Lord Reith, founder of the BBC: 'They [the government] know they can trust us not to be really impartial.' (C. Stuart, ed., 'The Reith Diaries', 1975) [Media Lens Twitter LINK]
