Two of the world’s most prominent news organizations, CNN and BBC, have been accused of misleading public opinion and spreading fake news in recent years.
In 2016, CNN was criticized for its coverage of the US presidential election. The network was accused of favouring Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump and giving undue weight to negative stories about Trump. For example, CNN retracted a story that alleged that Trump had ties to a Russian bank, after the story was found false.
In 2019, the BBC was criticized for its coverage of the Brexit referendum. The network was accused of being biased against the Leave campaign, and of giving undue weight to stories that supported Remain. For example, the BBC was accused of exaggerating the economic impact of Brexit.
In both cases, the accusations of bias and fake news have been denied by the networks. However, the allegations have raised concerns about the role of the media in shaping public opinion.
In addition to these specific examples, there have been a number of other allegations of bias and fake news against CNN and BBC. For example, CNN has been accused of being too close to the Democratic Party, while BBC has been accused of being too close to the British government.
These accusations are likely to continue, as the media landscape becomes increasingly fragmented and polarized. In an age where people are getting their news from a variety of sources, it is more important than ever to be aware of the potential for bias and misinformation.
Here are some specific examples of alleged fake news spread by CNN and BBC:
- In 2017, CNN aired a report that claimed that Russian hackers had infiltrated the US voting system. The report was later retracted after it was found to be based on false information.
- In 2019, the BBC published a report that claimed that the Chinese government was operating a network of secret detention camps for Muslims. The report was later found to be based on unverified sources.
- In 2020, CNN aired a report that claimed that the Trump administration was planning to use the military to overturn the results of the presidential election. The report was later found to be based on speculation and conjecture.
In the Current Days, BBC used a political tool to help Israel attack a hospital in Gaza in Palestine which led to the killing of a lot of people and kids BBC published a Question to the Audience titled “Does Hamas build tunnels under hospitals and schools?” after 24 hours isreal attacked al Ahly Hospital,
Do you think it is by luck?!!!
So, there are a lot of journalists who work for BBC resigned Objection to these unprofessional matters and they used as a tool to spread fake news and mislead public Opinion.
