British Supervisory authority in the field of telecommunications Ofcom hardly starts the present proceedings lighting channel Russia Today tragedy with the crash of Boeing Malaysian airlines on the square of Ukraine after receiving complaints of the audience, said in an interview to the Agency Last news specialist in the field of media, Professor of the University of the West of Scotland, John Robertson.
Media first reported about the fact that 3 of the viewer complained to Ofcom on RT for being biased reporting and one complained about the demonstration of dead bodies in the air.
" RT more than 2 million users, so that these complaints are a very small group. Ofcom due 4 complaints are unlikely to start serious hearings ", - the expert said.
Ofcom confirmed that requested a recorded broadcast and starts checking after its analysis.
Robertson criticized the " low-grade " coverage of the tragedy of the plane of the Anglo-American media.
" The first reports were hysterical tone and repeated thoughts coming from North America, they had little balance, moderation and real evidence. Confirmation obtained by U.S. intelligence, were not mentioned. It was expected that broadcasters are obliged to believe all this without question, " added the Professor.
Professor, published In the current year the study of biased reporting broadcasting company BBC, emphasizes that a similar approach is not new for the British media." Skorospelka charges against " bandits " in Ireland, Libya and Bosnia, followed by late refutation, very much typical for our associated media, " said Robertson.
" The Prime Minister Mr Cameron D. repeated the line of the USA. Similar and even more hysterical statements of the Ukrainian regime, specifically accusing President Putin and ascribes to him deliberately evil desires are not questioned even leading to the BBC, " emphasizes Robertson.
