Shoddy radio interviewing. Radio4, now.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I don't know what this is, as I've tuned in halfway through, but there's some very shoddy reporting going on. A fair bit of American (Whitehouse-type) language being fired around, and a horrifyingly unquestioning pro-Israeli stance allowed to keep the upper hand, and a lot - in the style of US news pre-Iraq invasion - talk of Iran as a dangerous threat to us. Us being a sort of vague UK/US/Israel/West entity which they don't seem to have examined.

    They're presenting Iran as far more dangerous than it is, and one female interviewer has been suspiciously emotional.

    I'm going to hold back from a heavy condemnation until I've heard it in full, but having come into the discussion where I have, I'm quite unnerved by it.

    It's the Moral Maze.

  2. Not Melanie Phillips by any chance?
