The BBC's new propaganda unit or whatever they call it - would the person in charge be the FAcT CONTROLLER?

Some wag called the Beeb's new outfit the Vilify Unit. Sounds about right. Or rather left.

I wonder whether the next generation, reared on the post-truth gospel according to Oprah and assorted lobbying groups, would regard this scene as the equivalent of those obscure bits of ‘comedy’ in Shakespeare which may have been side-splitting for his contemporaries but pass us by completely.

Sackers - ha ha, very good. Worth propagating.

dearieme - I wish I'd thought of that. Outfits like the BBC are given a hard time by online wags. They may even suspect it by now.

Macheath - I'm sure you are right, they will see it as the equivalent of obscure bits of ‘comedy’ in Shakespeare.
