BBC Pulls All Reporters From Russia After Moscow Criminalizes "Disinformation"


Following earlier news that Russia will criminalize "disinformation" about military in crackdown on "fake information", not that different from the wholesale "canceling" and deplatforming of any western media outlets that do not parrot the official narrative, moments ago the BBC announced that it would "temporarily suspend the work of all BBC News journalists and their support staff within the Russian Federation" while the news agency assesses the full implications of this unwelcome development.

Those dastardly Russians! Only a Commie would call anything they disagree with "misinformation" or "disinformation"! We Americans have the First Amendment and the Constitution and guns and apple pie!… Well, we USED to. Ironically, of course, the BBS *is* a government disinformation outlet, but we hope the multiple ironies here are not lost on you.
