Does BBC Screen Guests and Coach Them on What To Say?

Yes. I can confirm that BBC instructs guests what they can and cannot say. The way this is managed is via several pre-interviews with different producers who listen to your answers to possible questions asked on air – and then repeat your answer in the words they want you to use – saying “wouldn’t it be more impartial to say…” with implication being, here’s what we want you to say – but in your own words. If it appears you aren’t playing along they cancel the booking. If you parrot what they want you might get asked back. When we presented our own show “The Oracle with Max Keiser” on BBC World – the BBC engaged in outright censorship and propaganda. We told them to sod off and cut ties with them.
