In a world full of corporate news channels pumping out government-approved messages and narratives that rarely synchronise with eyewitness reports, with everyone from major media to the man next-door on Twitter pushing their agenda-based opinion on every subject, many of us crave a source of solid research and analysis to help make sense of it all. Fortunately, there are a number of people and institutions that have proven their reliability and resilience over time. Of the ones I’ve come to know, one of my favourites is Richard D. Hall’s RichPlanet TV.
Richard has produced 255 episodes reaching back to 2008 on a wide range of subjects that are difficult if not impossible to get a straight story on from conventional journalism. His work on the Madeleine McCann story is phenomenal but I’ve chosen to highlight his episode on the Jill Dando murder which is probably the most clearcut case of assassination and cover-up by the establishment in recent times.
There’s much to be learned about the real world we inhabit beyond the Truman Show charade presented to us on our TV screens and newsprint. RichPlanet TV is there to help us navigate the minefield of confusion and disinformation. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful as much as I do.
