Terrorists To Attack Coronation Street: Psyop 101
In an appalling case of tabloid journalism that verges on a national psyop, today’s Sun Newspaper headline story is that Al Qaeda terrorists may attack the set of widely watched soap opera Coronation Street – which airs its historic 50th anniversary show tonight on ITV.
They didn’t make it clear whether they suspect Betty is hiding explosives in her hot-pot or if Ken Barlow was with the terrorists all along, but all stars will have to undergo full body searches…passing through airport-style scanners before being frisked in security checks at the show’s studios.
What better way to get a nation ready for the scanners than to have the cast of a primetime soap happily give up their freedoms? “Well if Deirdre’s willing to get frisked I guess…”
An unnamed source for the show stated “It’s a nightmare scenario. For Corrie bosses there is the possibility of this tragic episode turning into a real-life tragedy.”
The report continues:
Greater Manchester Police confirmed they were taking the intelligence seriously. A spokesman said grimly: “This is a public, high-profile event. The risk is consistent with the UK terror threat, which is currently severe.
“ITV have taken on a private security firm and our officers will assist them.”
It’s appears Corrie bosses have fallen hook-line-and-sinker for some trumped up intel, that will reap thousands in profits for private firms and once again aid the government in peddling propaganda for their trumped up war on terror. And I’m sure they don’t mind the increased news coverage either.
I’m just surprised they haven’t employed the world’s greatest actor Bin Laden for a cameo!
