”Our mission is to inform, connect and empower people around the world.” These are mighty words from BBC Media Action, a charitable offshoot of the BBC funded to £29.5m in 2012 - most of it from the British Government, EU, US State Department, UN and Dutch government.

Recommendations for a more effective policy and regulation that supports integrity, ethical standards and freedom of the press.

Last night's Channel 4 Dispatches "documentary" was a classic example of a multi-purpose psychological operation, designed to minimise any urges we may have towards activism, while at the same time softening us up to yet more social profiling and the idea of energy austerity.
