BBC Online

The US elections, specifically Trump, you’d expect to have nothing to do with our EU referendum. But the BBC still manages to insert subtle fear tactics in other unrelated stories as well. In a story about Trump included on top 10 global risks by the EIU, “He [TRUMP] is rated as riskier than Britain leaving the European”. It also includes a video which mentions our EU situation twice, one stating “And more dangerous than…. The UK leaving the EU”, and the other again making use of the word dangerous. The word dangerous is not mentioned on the EIU site, in fact EU exit is the only “risk” that is given a “low impact” but the BBC manage to attribute fear to an exit none the less. Very subtle BBC but we know what you’re doing.
