Ben Riley-Smith Style of Journalism


Four puff pieces of propaganda

Telegraph 20140312 1

Today’s Telegraph carries 4 ‘articles’ by Ben Riley-Smith each of which is based on an ‘interview’ with Sir David Omand, former director of GCHQ.

I italicised ‘article’ and ‘interview’ because what the Telegraph has published are not articles but unadulterated propaganda which give no indication of having been based upon any normal form of interview.

What’s good enough for the Telegraph and Ben Riley-Smith is good enough for me!

I have interviewed myself and my next post mimics Ben Riley-Smith’s approach to journalism.
