This is the documentary that the Hoaxteaders have been banging on about for days. I’ve put a question mark in the post title, as I may be wrong. Perhaps this is a World-changing exposé of child abuse worthy of a Pulitzer, rather than a load of unsubstantiated sensationalist bollocks. I’d value your feedback:
I’m not denying the existence of paedophiles in high places but it’s amateur crap like this parading as serious journalism that actually risks deterring people from taking the issue seriously.
Let’s start with the questioning style:
“It still hurts, doesn’t it.”
“When you were 6, a family member took you to other paedophiles, didn’t they.”
…Sooo, no putting words into the mouths of the interviewees there, then!
Moreover, what evidence is actually presented in this documentary other than the ‘testimonies’ of these random ‘victims’? Not a single document or piece of video evidence, no witness testimonies, no police records, no data, no sources, no media clips or press articles, no consulting with experts…
And is there a reason we should take these so-called victims’ claims on face value and believe everything they say without question or robust analysis? I’m not necessarily saying they’re lying but when the makers of an award-winning news show on a mainstream TV channel swallow everything they say (at times manipulating them into saying what they want to hear), and regurgitate it all as categorical fact, for consumption by millions, then something has gone horribly wrong.
This is tabloid journalism of the shoddiest kind. It’s essentially an hour of idle gossip and tittle-tattle that would be more worthy of hysterical lying charlatans like Bill Baloney and Ben Fellows. Gullible paranoid loons like Charlotte “Jacqui Farmer” Ward and her creepy troll collective will inevitably swallow this crap wholesale – in fact, they’d already done so before it had even aired (!) – but intelligent, rational people should, I feel, approach this so-called documentary with extreme caution.
Or is it just me?
