The BBC Ethics Scandal
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?
If the BBC keeps publishing their unsubstantiated stories, then isn’t it an abhorrent doing? If the BBC continues to side with the CCP without objectively checking the facts, doesn’t it show that the BBC lost its senses when it was wooed by the CCP? Perhaps the BBC’s relationship with the CCP can be called “Better Believe Communism & Collect Communist Payoff.” It is an open secret that the CCP buys off and pressures politicians and even reporters to achieve their ends. Surely the BBC knows the history of the CCP’s methods? Is it possible that the BBC has been bought off? What are the implications of this reporting only one side of the event? Does the BBC really want to be a tool of oppression?
The BBC is accountable. Yes, even in the BBC editorial guidelines accountability, fairness and impartiality are stressed, yet in this news piece where can we see the impartial reporting? Where can we see the fairness? We welcome the BBC to publish the links of our church materials and videos, so the BBC audience can have an impartial chance to discover the truth for themselves.
The mission of the Church of Almighty God is to spread the truths that the returned Christ expressed in the end time for the whole mankind. God’s words in the end time, The Word Appears in the Flesh, teaches us how to live out the likeness of a real man and satisfy God’s will. It is the greatest honor for us to share God’s word with others. It’s common knowledge that the CCP is the most evil power on earth, which is the enemy of God, and it wants to prevent God’s word from spreading to the entire mankind. That is why it persecutes and frames and hinders the Church of Almighty God. This man in the Zhaoyuan event is most definitely not a member of our Church. From his own words it is obvious he doesn’t believe in Almighty God. No one in the Church recognizes him. So what would his actions have to do with the Church of Almighty God?
The BBC has made a grossly incorrect report and we demand it to be corrected and your response published on the BBC webpage. Millions of Church members are waiting.
