The BBC seems to relish acting as St. George towards poor George Soros, with Mr Soros in the role of cruelly-used Princess and "the hard-right" as the nasty Dragon.
This weekend they are riding out, lances aloft, with a BBC News website article headlined Why is billionaire George Soros a bogeyman for the hard right? and an accompanying BBC Two programme tomorrow night titled Conspiracy Files: The Billionaire Global Mastermind?
The blurb for the latter runs as follows:
How billionaire George Soros has become a bogeyman around the world. Are allegations of secret Soros plots to overthrow governments and flood countries with migrants simply a product of anti-Semitism?
A taster clip for the programme - seen here - makes the programme's likely 'take' very clear. Its line will be that Mr Soros's accusers are "conspiracy theorists", that their "conspiracies theories" are underpinned by antisemitism, and that such "conspiracy theories" have "deadly consequences".
The website article by the BBC's Mike Rudin is chockablock with defenders of Mr Soros and lays out the case against his accusers with single-minded purpose.
Wonder if George Soros will be tuning in?
