BIG BREAKING NEWS – CHRISTIAN TV CHANNEL FINED: Christian TV channel Fined – Airing Misleading and Harmful Statements about Coronavirus [#LoveWorld] 10/06
A Christian TV channel has been fined £25,000 by the UK broadcasting regulator for airing misleading and harmful statements about coronavirus, including that the rollout of 5G mobile networks caused the pandemic.
Programs aired at the height of the first wave last year on LoveWorld, which holds a UK broadcasting license and is beamed around the world, claimed there was a “global cover-up” over the technology being the cause of the health crisis.
At the time BT, which owns mobile operator EE and the Openreach subsidiary responsible for the UK’s broadband network, was facing attacks on its engineers and mobile phone masts as the false conspiracy theory was circulated.
Another report by LoveWorld Television Ministry presented the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a “cure” for Covid-19, without acknowledging that its efficacy and safety as a treatment was clinically unproven, or making it clear that it had potentially serious side-effects.
