Video: John Pilger On Paris, ISIS And Media Propaganda

John Pilger

Award winning journalist and author, John Pilger talks to Afshin Rattansi about how Washington, London and Paris gave birth to ISIS-Daesh.

“Western media constantly beats the drums of war, while western governments continue the support for Islamic terror they started in Afghanistan in the 1980s”

Going Underground also examines the media’s role in spreading disinformation ahead of a vote in Parliament for UK bombing of Syria.

Afshin looks at the Autumn Statement and why in a time of high alert we are cutting the police force and buying drones.

Also we look at which companies are benefitting from the budget.

Plus Afshin is joined once again by former MP and broadcaster, Lembit Opik, to look at the week’s news from a cyber sinking feeling over Trident to budget boosts for the BBC.
