Matthew Wright Show discusses Saving Syria’s Children

Kudos to broadcaster Matthew Wright for putting his head well and truly above the parapet and inviting Keith Allen and I onto his talkRADIO show on Friday 3 May to discuss our plans to make a documentary about Saving Syria’s Children.

You can listen to the interview at this link.

The interview began with a discussion of Ofcom’s 2015 finding against RT’s Truthseeker programme Media ‘Staged’ Syria Chem Attack. As noted at the time by OffGuardian:

The most significant point here is that OfCom has specifically not cleared the BBC of suspicion of wrongdoing, and is not claiming to have done so.

Although I managed to rattle through most of the main points I wanted to make, I kicked myself for failing to mention the links between the Panorama crew, al-Qaeda and ISIS linked jihadists Ahrar al-Sham and ISIS itself.

My fellow guest, journalist and author Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, was evidently unimpressed with proceedings. I’d ask her to reserve judgement until she’s looked at the footage in question and engaged with the evidence set out on my blog.

Still, Matthew was clear that this is a topic he wishes to return to, hopefully once we’ve met our fundraising target. So please keep sharing the campaign!

  1. Why don’t ”we” just save Syria? Oh too late, well there’s a thing.
    Why would a man of your age suggest trusting the media? particularly a medium controlled by the most powerful and long running dictatorship ever conceived.
