Barrie V bbc

The BBC asked questions and made ‘claims’ Barrie responded – this is the full transcript

oh hilarious.. another flimsy BBC copycat article – previously attempted by the ASPI – soundly debunked here: https://youtu.be/9D9I3Ac6HC4
See the Prequel: https://youtu.be/CbaFcW1H_Zc
and yes the riposte is ready..

— @ChinaBeehive

Barrie – BestChinaInfo – I’m one of the ‘vloggers’ mentioned in the utterly disingenuous BBC Hit-piece. The BBC’s Kerry Allen and Sophie Williams told deliberate untruths – nay, lies that the aforementioned vloggers ‘spread CPC disinformation’: https://youtu.be/MyvBmKdFD9c?t=235 – Of course we do not! Here’s my take on the whole sorry BBC debacle: https://bestchinainfo.com/news/barrie-v-bbc-full-transcript/ It started with a previous feeble attempt by ASPI which I ridiculed here: https://youtu.be/9D9I3Ac6HC4 – the BBC hit-piece is a copycat of this flimsy rubbish – Here’s the ‘Prequel’ to the BBC’s latest bungled attempt to besmirch China and independent pro-China voices: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbaFcW1H_Zc / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCfvqtB5yvI ” Here’s another excellent takedown: BBC Twitter ASPI Raytheon in cahoots – comedy hit-piece dissected: https://youtube.com/watch?v=fHICKSqgMo4 – recommended.
And here are my actual responses to the questions and ‘claims’ the BBC put to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug_zLV9A9Ms (Videos embedded at bottom of page)

See bottom of page for Barrie’s response to the ludicrous claims by the BBC.
The response to their pre-written set-up – questions and ‘claims’ as asked, This is a pre-written hit-piece – a thinly veiled attempt to discredit Hua Chunying and China Ministry of Foreign Affairs – disguised as a smear piece on Barrie V + pro-China Vloggers https://youtu.be/Ug_zLV9A9Ms

The BBC? No I don’t trust them any further than I could kick them, which isn’t very far. I invited the typis.. stenographe.. ‘journalist’ (?) in question to a face to face online interview – – she refused.
I know full well that a hatchet job hit-piece is being written – the agenda is already set and decided –
In our email exchanges s/he has already lied to me – and denied it – twice!

Many thanks

Hi ******,

Thanks for your email.

A story on China and Youtubers in the country..

Well, I might be interested, and although I wouldn’t describe myself as a ‘youtuber’ exactly, some dialogue with you on this would be useful in the first instance, to give me a clearer picture – so I would suggest we have a tencent meeting / skype chat to discuss.

cheers

Hi Barrie,

Thanks so much for getting back to me.

As I mentioned, we’re writing a piece on foreigners who create videos for Youtube and appear in Chinese state media. I understand your video was used in a MOFA briefing recently.

I had a few questions to ask and also wanted to share some claims that have been made, that I would like to give you a right of reply to.

You claim to have worked for a newspaper in England for six years. Where and when was this?

Why do you think the Ministry of Foreign Affairs used your video in the briefing?

What has prompted you to make these videos? And is there a reason they have become more political over time?

Here are the claims that I would like to give you a right of reply to:

Your videos are coordinated to counter investigative reports by independent media outlets on topics such as the treatment of China’s Uyghur community

Your videos are part of a disinformation campaign to spread communist party rhetoric

You are paid by China to create these videos

Thanks for your reply – I’ll get back to you in more detail later today,

Hi ******,

‘I understand your video was used in a MOFA briefing recently.’

Correct, yes, at least one of my videos has been used by MFA spokespersons.

Your first question: ‘You claim to have worked for a newspaper in England for six years.’

Yes, – not a ‘claim’ – it’s fact.

As for your other questions, and the ‘claims’ you say have been made – and that you would like to give me a right of reply to:

I would be happy to answer your questions, and reply to ‘claims made’, face to face – that is to say, via a video conference / interview with yourself, and perhaps even another person that you may have contacted.

(I’m assuming you have contacted other people regarding this ‘piece’. )

This would, I believe, be beneficial to yourself as a journalist, which I assume you are,

to the BBC, and also to myself, not least in terms of ensuring my words are not taken out of context

nor paraphrased to insinuate some meaning I didn’t infer.

I look forward to your response.

Regards,

Barrie

Hi Barrie,

Thanks so much for getting back to me.

As I mentioned, we’re writing a piece on foreigners who create videos for Youtube and appear in Chinese state media.

I understand your video was used in a MOFA briefing recently.
I had a few questions to ask and also wanted to share some claims that have been made, that I would like to give you a right of reply to.

You claim to have worked for a newspaper in England for six years. Where and when was this?

Why do you think the Ministry of Foreign Affairs used your video in the briefing?

What has prompted you to make these videos? And is there a reason they have become more political over time?

Here are the claims that I would like to give you a right of reply to:

Your videos are coordinated to counter investigative reports by independent media outlets on topics such as the treatment of China’s Uyghur community

Your videos are part of a disinformation campaign to spread communist party rhetoric

You are paid by China to create these videos

Hi ******,
To begin. One item at a time:
******:
‘I understand your video was used in a MOFA (MFA) briefing recently.’
Barrie:
Correct, yes, at least one of my videos has been used by MFA spokespersons, such as Hua Chunying and Zhao Lijian.
Your first question:
******:
‘You claim to have worked for a newspaper in England for six years.’ (previously: You claim to have worked for a newspaper in England for six years. Where and when was this?)

Barrie: Correct. Yes, it’s not a ‘claim’ – it’s fact: I worked for Britain’s lagest circulation daily newspaper for six years. Where and when is not your concern. .

******:
Why do you think the Ministry of Foreign Affairs used your video in the briefing?

Barrie:
China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, via Hua Chunying used my video in the briefing, to illustrate, quite clearly, to the BBC, in person, that a person the BBC have employed, Adrian Zenz, by his own admission, when asked by the BBC to ‘find some evidence’ of ‘human rights abuses in China’s Xinjiang, had refused, stating, as displayed in my video, in his own words,
“No, I can’t, it’s too difficult, there’s too little evidence.”  
Again, in his own words, Zenz said the BBC approached him again, – this time with a ‘commission’ – meaning money, as I’m sure the BBC’s Kathy Long can confirm – and this time he agreed to ‘find something’.
Kathy Long stated: “I am a BBC producer – I produced all of the BBC programmes that used Adrian Zenz – why didn’t the MFA or any other media organization come to us to ask about our supposed relationship with Adrian Zenz – Well – nobody had to – Hua Chunying used my video to illustrate perfectly well that Adrian Zenz himself described the relationship – the BBC pay me to ‘find things’ ..”


******:
What has prompted you to make these videos?
And is there a reason they have become more political over time?


Barrie:
Nothing has ‘prompted’ me. I do what I do of my own volition and choosing – to suit my own whims. I’m not paid, prompted or coerced in any way shape or form.
I have been outspoken against what I see as hypocrisy and inequality, against human rights abuse by western governments since my mid to late teens – this is nothing new. I can prove this.  

******:
Is there a reason they have become more political over time?

Barrie:
Who says ‘they’ve become more political over time’? You, ******, or the BBC, are saying this. So you must verify on what basis you make this statement – this is what’s commonly known as ‘spin’ – it’s not a question, or at best, it is a ‘leading question’ – and inadmissible, and doesn’t warrant any response. Hhowever, I will elucidate: Proof: My videos, songs, other writings, have not become any more or less political’, for want of a better description, over any timeframe. I’ve written songs stating my views and criticizing the inhumanity of UK and US government home and foreign policy , recorded and dated, stretching back to 1987, which clearly confirm this to be true – fact. (Link to song example available upon request)

******: Here are the claims that I would like to give you a right of reply to
(Previously:
I also wanted to share some claims that have been made, that I would like to give you a right of reply to):

******: Your videos are coordinated to counter investigative reports by independent media outlets on topics such as the treatment of China’s Uyghur community

Barrie: Firstly, regarding the ‘claims that you say have been made‘. Who, exactly makes, or has made, these claims? And why is it that you – the BBC ‘would like to give’ me,or have right to give, me, by your good grace’ a ‘right to reply to’?
Unless it is you – the BBC that are making these ‘claims’?

******: Your videos are coordinated to counter investigative reports by independent media outlets on topics such as the treatment of China’s Uyghur community


Barrie:
No. They are not. To what ‘investigative reports’ by what ‘independent media outlets’ do you allude? Adrian Zenz? Radio Free Asia? Neither of these entities are independent.
The BBC are attempting to insinuate an agenda, and so it is quite clear where the agenda lies – with the BBC themselves.
You are not the first to try and allege and insinuate this ‘coordinated’ notion.
 The ASPI (Australian Strategic Policy Institute) also attempted this in an incredibly flimsy opinion piece which, again, named me personally – and again, was nothing more than an ‘opinion piece’ – with no factual evidence to prove the insinuation was anything more than just that – an insinuation.
 Similarly here you, and the BBC are attempting to insinuate a ‘coordinated effort’ of some kind, and again, as is usual with the ASPI, and the BBC, and Adrian Zenz, and Radio Free Asia – there is no substance to any of your ‘claims’, nothing more than allegation, and insinuation; nothing more than ‘claims’ by some ‘ethereal’ entity.   

******: Your videos are part of a disinformation campaign to spread communist party rhetoric.


Barrie: Again, no.
See above, another insinuation, another ethereal ‘claim’ from the ether.. laughable, baseless.

I will state, clearly, categorically, to these supposed ‘claims’: Neither you, nor the BBC, nor anyone else on this planet has one single shred of evidence to prove otherwise. This is another insinuation, another ethereal ‘claim’ from the ether.. laughable, baseless.

N.B. The Communist Party of China do not indulge in ‘rhetoric’.

Thank you for ‘giving me the right to reply’, to the laughable, baseless, insinuations of this spineless entity, whomsoever, and wherever it, he, she, or they might be slithering.

******: You are paid by China to create these videos


Barrie:
No, I am not. Neither China nor the Chinese government pay me to do what I do. The truth is, if they offered I would accept!! But once again, and to close, no, and neither you, nor the BBC, nor anyone else on this planet has one single shred of evidence to prove otherwise.

Hi Barrie, Thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately I am unable to do a video conference for a right of reply. The idea of this is to give you the opportunity to respond to some of these questions and claims.
We’d originally given you a deadline over the weekend for a response. Are you still interested in responding to this? We’d need the response in the coming days. As I said in my previous email, we’re keen to know the following: What newspaper did you work for in England and when was this?

Hi ******, Thanks for your reply . I don’t like to be pedantic, and it doesn’t matter that much, because, as agreed, I would / will respond to your questions and claims ‘in the coming days’. (As you’d agreed: ‘We’d need the response in the coming days.’ – 12:39 am) But. Prior to your email, it, that is, a ‘deadline’, or date – wasn’t mentioned, at all, except for in your last email: ” ‘I invite you to answer the questions and comment on the claims by 23.30 UK time on Thursday.’ ” and the email prior: ‘We’d originally given you a deadline over the weekend for a response. Are you still interested in responding to this? We’d need the response in the coming days.’. As I say, it is of no critical importance, other than to get facts straight, but, and so also, to be clear, utterly and absolutely clear about what has been said, and what has not been said, and by whom, or not, as the case may be, right from the outset. I enclose below, a transcript of the entirety of our email exchanges thus far (since April 17th 2021) I will now consider your questions, and the ‘claims’you say have been made.

You are paid by China to create these videos

UPDATE:
hello —— I know you saw the last email I sent. Am I correct in assuming you’re deliberately not even saying thank you to me for acceding to your request to answer your questions, in order to be able to claim that you / the BBC tried to contact me, but that I failed to reply (in time),? So you can then go ahead and write your (hit) piece on me, while simultaneously stating that you gave me the chance to reply, but I didn’t? As you’ve done with other people on similar issues.. I’d appreciate at least acknowledgment. It’s rather rude of you to not even say a polite thank you. Didn’t your parents raise you properly or something?
