Dear Ms. Anda,
Please find attached PDF: ** BBC: Lis Goril Anda: Request for Information: Irregular Failure to Disclose Relevant Biases and Critical Psychiatry Perspectives in "Breivik trial forces Norway to look again at insanity" **
It contains the full version of my complaint submitted to the BBC at:
Complaint/Request to BBC/Ms. Anda,
Complaint: Request for Information/Corrections:
1. Reasons for your failure to disclose your bias towards Breivik’s sanity [previous Radical Secularist post referring to him as a madman]
2. Reasons for your failure to disclose Critical Psychiatry criticism of legal definitions of ‘insanity’ as ‘Psychiatry’s takeover of the legal system with psychobabble with scientific foundations equal to horoscope charts’ (Margaret Hagen, Ph.D: Whores of the Court: The Fraud of Psychiatric Testimony)
3. Reasons for your failure to disclose Psychiatry / Psychology / DSM links to Pharmaceutical Corporations who effectively are the final arbiters as to definitions of horoscope chart ‘insanity’ (Marketing of Madness Documentary)
4. Reasons for your failure to disclose BBC’s yearly advertising income from the Pharmaceutical Industry
5. If it is true Norwegians treasure Openness and Freedom of Expression; why is there blanket Censorship of the Acquittal or Firing Squad: ‘If It Bleads, It Leads’ Media’s Population-Terrorism Connection Report? (http://bit.ly/JqLCKE)

If you are not a Pharmaceutical Public Relations Propaganda Churnalist Whore; I look forward to your response and corrections.
I am the only member of the Radical Honesty culture and religion, in South Africa. Our culture is founded on the principle of Radical Transparency.
Radical Transparency is also practiced as the foundational principle of: (1) Delancey Street Foundation; and 2) Bridgewater Associates. Truth and Reality are valued above all else. In order to live in reality, we need to know whats true, including and especially those things we would prefer not be true; so that we can decide and prepare how best to confront and resolve them. Our culture is consequently founded on logic and reason, which is the basis for our decision-making. It is by striving to be honest and transparent to ourselves and others, that we build meaningful work and relationships.
In Radical Honoursty we have no such thing as ‘insanity’, since we are aware of the fact that there is no scientific evidence for the concept Psycho-Pharmacopia refers to as ‘insanity’: ‘Mental Illness is to Pharma-Psychiatry; what Heresy was to the Inquisition’; just a new form of social control. “To admit the central role of value judgments and cultural norms [in the creation of the DSM] is to give the whole game away. The DSM has to be seen as reliable and valid, or the whole enterprise of medical psychiatry collapses.” -- Lucy Johnstone, The Users and Abusers of Psychiatry. In the Radical Honoursty culture ‘depression’ is considered to be anger without attitude, or put differently, depression is a result of suppressed anger.
Whereas generally conservatives support the rule of men, whereas liberals generally support the rule of emotion; in Radical Honoursty: Everyone is entitled to the principles of the RULE OF LAW, irrespective of the severity or temerity of their criminal act, or the alleged extremity or temerity of their ideological or religious beliefs.

 In "Flat Earth News: An Award-Winning Reporter Exposes Falsehood, Distortion and Propaganda in the Global Media", Nick Davies writes that “journalism without checking is like a body without an immune system”. He “uncovers an industry awash in corruption and bias”, where “commercial forces are the main obstacle to truth-telling journalism”. In Our media have become mass producers of distortion: An industry whose task should be to filter out falsehood has become a conduit for propaganda and second hand news, he writes:
"I commissioned research from specialists at Cardiff University, who surveyed more than 2,000 UK news stories from the four quality dailies (Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Independent) and the Daily Mail. They found two striking things. First, when they tried to trace the origins of their "facts", they discovered that only 12% of the stories were wholly composed of material researched by reporters. With 8% of the stories, they just couldn't be sure. The remaining 80%, they found, were wholly, mainly or partially constructed from second-hand material, provided by news agencies and by the public relations industry. Second, when they looked for evidence that these "facts" had been thoroughly checked, they found this was happening in only 12% of the stories."
"The implication of those two findings is truly alarming. Where once journalists were active gatherers of news, now they have generally become mere passive processors of unchecked, second-hand material, much of it contrived by PR to serve some political or commercial interest. Not journalists, but churnalists. An industry whose primary task is to filter out falsehood has become so vulnerable to manipulation that it is now involved in the mass production of falsehood, distortion and propaganda."
 “Psychology's takeover of our legal system represents not an advance into new but clearly charted areas of science but a terrifying retreat into mysticism and romanticism, a massive suspension of disbelief propelled by powerful propaganda. Thanks to the willingness of judges and juries to believe psychobabble with scientific foundations equal to horoscope charts, babble puffed about by psychological professionals with impressive credentials, what we've got now are thousands of self-styled soul doctors run amok in our courts, drunk with power, bedazzled by spectacular fees for the no-heavy-lifting job of shooting off their mouths about any psychological topic that sneaks a toe into a courtroom. The demand is great, the supply is huge, and the science behind it all is nonexistent. But the reality does not matter.” - Margaret Hagen, Ph.D: Whores of the Court: The Fraud of Psychiatric Testimony (whoresofthecourt.com).
