A Brit entrepreneur creates compelling news feeds from outside the MSM, marking a dramatic change – for the good – in our news sources.
At the time of writing, this has had 140,000 views. I’d cavil that the message misses other important American contributions – its unlikely that there would ever be color TV in a UK that struggle post WW2 without Marshall Aid and never got the transistor from Bell Labs. But it’s a splendid counter to the BBC distortions many Brits take as gospel.
The outfit that produced it is a very Brit innovation. 18 Doughty Street combines a conservative think tank with a well written on-line daily (now added to the DU blogroll) and produces its own videos:
18 Doughty Street is a five storey terraced house in Bloomsbury…
The state-of-the art television studio, which houses seven cameras, is in a self-contained, secure suite that houses two sets – one that is primarily used for Up Front and the main set that is used for the bulk of our programming.
The ground floor also houses two offices, comprising ten work stations. This is the editorial and creative hub of 18 Doughty Street. It is in this room that editorial decisions are made, guests are booked, articles written and our campaign agenda refined.
18 Doughty Street has similar creativity and smarts to Vigil, the private Brit organization that works to disrupt and expose terrorist activity. With people and institutions such as these, it’s very likely the UK will remain the freest, least corrupt large economy in the world.
