‘Western media outlets not trusted’

Western media outlets are not trusted, George Galloway says.

British Respect Party MP George Galloway has said that western media channels like the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Fox News or Sky News cannot be trusted.

While talking to a guest caller and viewer on Press TVâ„¢s weekly debate program Comment, Galloway said, Å“No one in the right mind trusts Fox News or CNN or the BBC or Sky News. No one in the right mind trusts them because they reflect the point of view of the regime that pays them, whether a person in the case of Mr. Murdoch [News Corporation CEO]or our government in the case of the state broadcasters in Western countries like the BBC”.

He also welcomed Å“millions of people around the world” for seeking alternative media that they feel is trustworthy.

This comes as Press TV and other Iranian satellite channels have been taken off the air regardless of mutual contracts and agreements in several Western countries including Britain, France, Germany and Spain.

Galloway condemned the media ban on Iranian channels and said they cannot be closed down as we are living in the 21st century now. Galloway said millions of viewers watch the news channel weekly via phone; internet and soon they will be able to watch the channel via a new satellite link.
