children and fools cannot lie

'People doing drugs is really bad' (BBC News, Sunday, 5 October 2008)
In time, things turned even nastier. Bricks were thrown through their windows and they suffered an attempted break-in.

Chinese government propaganda against Falun Gong uses basically the same techniques. "Little girl meets family practising that evil religion, and before long, bricks are thrown through the windows." QED: Falun Gong is really bad. After all, who wouldn't believe a little girl?

Different issues, same stupid rhetoric. Thank you, BBC, for treating us like adults. By the way, how many journalists from the former Fernsehen der DDR did you recruit after 1989?
