BBC Turned From Public Broadcaster Into Bill Gates-Funded Propaganda Machine and… a Crank/Troll-Feeding Machine

Posted in Deception at 2:06 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

BBC: we’re only useful for weather forecasts and football scores. The rest is noise, not news (distracting from information). Pouring gasoline for misinformation to reach broader audiences and online abuse to intensify.

BBC Icke

BBC on Rowling

Playing along also with Social Control Media ‘cancel culture’. In her own words, this is what happened:

Rowling explains Social Control Media

Summary: BBC was supposed to give taxpayers their money’s worth, but instead it’s killing articles about corruption (without explaining the reason) and feeds all sorts of cranks (giving them a platform) or gossip (Social Control Media “tweets” or “likes”)

[Humour] Only Drug Dealers and Proprietary Software Vendors… (Call You a ‘User’)

Posted in Bill Gates, GNU/Linux, Microsoft, Windows at 1:05 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

“It’s easier for our software to compete with Linux when there’s piracy than when there’s not.”

Bill Gates (real quote)

Worst pirate three panes: All our users are pirates... But you see?... GNU/Linux doesn't call people 'pirates' and 'users' like a drug dealer

Summary: While Microsoft is busy calling ordinary folks ‘pirates’ and ‘users’ (drug lords use that term to refer to their clients, whom they unjustly control by coercive means) GNU/Linux is more than happy to give everything away and share the software

To Better Understand Why Microsoft is Laying Off Staff (and Stopped Hiring Any) Check the Charts Net Applications and Other Microsoft Spinners Distract From

Recent: No, GNU/Linux Isn’t at 3% and Windows Isn’t at Over 90%, Either

A Microsoft fall

Android vs Microsoft

Summary: At the back end and the front end (server side/client side alike) Microsoft continues its trajectory towards irrelevance — an objectively simple fact that it likes to deny (while its friends at Net Applications carry on pretending that Windows somehow commands about 90% of the market)

TROLLS like Microsoft Lunduke tell us that "Linux sucks" (when it does not; the evidence is not on their side) and actively belittle its importance (same for Android). The headlines are “Is Linux Marketshare Rising? (Spoiler: It’s Actually Dropping)” and “Study: Android Users Are The Most Unhappy” (just clickbait). But as always, in this age of PR and spin, one must work a little harder to find/unearth what these people try to distract from. So we’ve taken screenshots of surveyors the corporate media doesn’t pay attention to (not convenient when measured properly, as opposed to selectively).

“So we’ve taken screenshots of surveyors the corporate media doesn’t pay attention to (not convenient when measured properly, as opposed to selectively).”To be perfectly frank, it doesn’t take a genius to see what we’re dealing with here. For a little while Lunduke seemed like he was supporting GNU/Linux, but watch his output as of late (annotated below, many are just reprints of old articles of his). We noted it getting worse in recent months and discussed it internally:

Lunduke FUD

Microsoft romantics? Indeed. Mind you, dear reader, much of what’s in between the Microsoft stuff (always positive stuff!) is just old stuff of his, archived in his personal site, along with comics and topic-less podcasts. Yes, pretty much aimless. No wonder his channel lost following and suddenly he’s back to provocation and trolling. Gets him more hits:

Notice how that one anti-Linux video netted him more views (77k) than 2 months of his videos’ views combined:

Lunduke's troll video

The economics of trolling/lying are well understood. We leave below Microsoft’s own words… (when you lack market share you focus on ‘mindshare’ instead — the mere illusion of importance)

“Mind Control: To control mental output you have to control mental input. Take control of the channels by which developers receive information, then they can only think about the things you tell them. Thus, you control mindshare!”
