Another serious blunder for Sonia Poulton and 'The People's Voice' - They interview Robert Green, but refuse to interview the Hollie Greig Hoax Team

Post by Tony Bennett on 17.12.13 19:46

On the Madeleine McCann case, The People's Voice (TPV) committed a monumental blunder by giving air time to the self-important fraud, Stephen D. Birch, who falsely claims that a machine of his has detected Madeleine McCann's body buried just below the surface of the driveway of Robert Murat's house in Praia da Luz.

If it were possible to 'top' that for sheer stupidity, they have now done so by interviewing ANOTHER self-important fraud and serial liar, Robert Green.

As exposed elsewhere on this forum, the claims of mother Anne Greig, made as she was having a mental breakdown in 2000, supported by Green and also by another impostor, Belinda McKenzie - that Hollie Greig was serially abused for 14 years by a group of up to 31 Scottish paedphiles - have been exposed as a hoax.

The hard work of exposing this hoax was done by Jon Stevenson, of the Hollie Greig Hoax group, and Maggie Shaw, who have worked together in conjunction with other genuine truth-seekers and two of the victims of this cruel hoax - Sylvia Major and Wyn Dragon-Smith. These two ladies were once family friends of Anne Greig and her family - until Anne Greig in her bitterness and rage against her ex-husband turned on him and invented the claims that he was part of a Scottish establishment paedophile ring, and had abused Hollie for 14 years. Anne Greig was living with her husband and Hollie for nearly all this time - and there is no medical evicence that Hollie was ever sexually abused.

Here is Jon Stevenson in a recording issued today (17 December 2013) explaining why it is that Sonia Poulton and TPV have offered and run an interview with proven liar Robert Green - yet failed to offer a platform to a dedicated group of people who have worked long and  hard to bring the truth about this hoax to the people:

http://www.theholliegreigcoverup.net/blog/index.php

One of the victims of the lies of Anne Greig and Robert Green, Sylvia Major, is a member of CMOMM, as is her supporter, Maggie Shaw.

If TPV had any shred of reputation for telling the truth left, this sequence of events has destroyed it...

...at least until TPV allow people like Jon Stevenson, Maggie Shaw and Sylvia Major from 'Hollie Greig Hoax' ro tell the truth.

It's also about time that David icke admitted he's got his facts terribly wrong on this case.


It only remains for me to point out that anyone being interviewed by this crazy TV station, which purports to be telling the truth to the people - but clearly is not - is risking their own reputation

I share your concern at the risk to the reputations of unsuspecting folk who appear on what I term 'skype tv' as it is not accessible on any of the numerous channels that are available on my television.  

When and if TPV's viewing figures are published I doubt they'll exceed double digits but, given that the 'programmes' are posted on youtube, presumably for posterity, those who seek to establish their crediblility on any subject through this particular medium may well find they've done themselves a great disservice and turned themselves into figures of fun in the process.  

It irks me to say this, but unless and until TPV is able to secure appearances by those who are widely regarded as being specialists in their respective fields, or who are able to discourse in a convincing manner, their mission statement is open to the type of ridicule that David Icke is no stranger to.

A link to a topic earlier this year in which one of the people accused of being an abuser joined to discuss the matter. One of Anne Mackie's supporters also joined - how like a McCann troll he was!

As for Robert Green being interviewed on TPV, I can only hope that the other side of the story will be aired later.

REPLY:  Thank you NFWTD for posting the reference to the earlier debate here on this controversial subject.

Sometimes it is necessary to air 'both sides' of a story, or an argument.

For example:

Would Britain be better or worse off out of the European Union?

Should cannabis be legalised?

Should we go for nuclear power, coal and gas, or wind and tidal power? Or a mixture?

And so on.

But the Hollie Greig story is different
.

Either she was sexually abused for 14 years by 31 paedophiles, most of them in the Scottish legal establishment - or she wasn't.

Either Anne Greig is telling the truth - or she is lying.

Any media outlet or journalist, just like us here on this forum, wants the truth.

If People's Voice TV wanted credibility, they would have:

1. Researched Stephen Birch and the Madeleine McCann case properly, realised he was an out-and-out fraud, and never agreed to give his bogus claims a second's exposure,

AND

2. They would have carefully weighed the (false) claims of Anne Greig, Robert Green and Hollie Demands Justice against the research carried out by the Hollie Greig Hoax (HGH) group - and would have had Jon Stevenson, Sylvia Major and Maggie Shaw from HGH on their programme, not Robert Green.

In these two instances at least, People's Voice TV has chosen - largely through ignorance I would suggest - to pump out a sereis of lies and falsehoods to their viewers.

What good is that?

What do you suggest Tony? That they close down and just not bother?

You are of course entitled to your opinion, but I cannot understand the reasoning behind your anger towards this new news channel? If we are to avoid an Orwellian future, aren't we better to encourage news agencies in their endeavors to get the stories out to us? I may be misinterpreting you, but I feel your attitude towards TPV is one of censorship. I may have said this before in previous discussions, but a busy news station, and one this small, simply does not have the resources to check out their guests to the extent that you demand. I doubt even the BBC or Sky do, it is simply not practical. While the Maddie case is important to you - to them, it is just another item on the schedule.

As to the guests they have on there, we must remember that they are catering for many and varied interests - stuff you do not see on Mainstream television. Obviously you will not agree with everything and everyone Tony, but such is life. You may not like Stephen Birch for example, but there are others who do, or others who may simply be interested in what he has to say. To deny him and them, that right is censorship.

There are many aspects to the case of missing Madeleine McCann, and until the full story emerges, we are all speculating, there is no definitive answer, as yet. Many of us have different theories and we often don't agree with each other, but none of us have the right to say our theory is the only one, and others must be dismissed.

Yes, I agree that the right to freedom of speech is paramount.

I do hope though that the Hollie hoax group will try to get their views heard too.

Hopefully TPV will correct their bias and do what they`ve promised and give ALL the people a voice.
 
They are supposed to be correcting the imbalance of the MSM and supposedly correcting the MSM`s biases.  But if they are going to highlight contraversial issues, they must give rights of reply so `the people` can make up their own minds.
 
And to Tony - you don`t believe Robert Green or Anne Greig - but some people do.  You don`t believe David Ike, but some people do.  You don`t believe Stephen Birch, but some people do.  You don`t believe the Smiths but some people do. You are expecting everyone to believe you are the only one that`s right.

Poulton is a journalist  of some twenty years standing.

If she doesn't know the basic method of presenting different points of view now she will never learn.

It 's pointless to gush over one interviewee and possibly at some point in time interview another with an opposing point of view on that topic.
By that time the audience will have long forgotten the first point of view.

The idea is to interview people with different views on the same subject at the same time and the task of the interviewer is to manage the debate, having thoroughly read up on the subject themselves  and prepared some questions.

If  the Stop the Myths had not posted the transcript we would still not know the content of one much vaunted interview as to date there is no youtube video of that one it appears. Why some are uploaded and others not is incompetence imo. A seven minute 'all about ME'  by Poulton is however available.

Beats me why Icke et al did not just use a youtube channel, announce a weekly release of each interview and film the interview using someone who's got some idea of presenting different points of view.
The Skype looks primitive and amateurish. It would be cheaper to hire a studio and make the thing look professional.

HideHo has tirelessly and for no pay at all - quite the opposite - created and posted clear and referenced videos on the internet, views of which run in the millions. Now that, to my mind is using freedom of speech in an effective way.

I'm all for freedom of speech but the 'it's all about me' Poulton effort doesn't even come close. The Holly Greig affair shows the PTV up for what it is, a channel with an agenda,  in other words it doesn't contain what it says on the packet.

Her interviewees so far have been on various radio shows, some have had plenty of column inches on their pet theory, others have been able  to talk about themselves on these channels. So how is it earth shattering to have this Skype TV?

Seems to me that the OP and the title are a misrepresentation of the facts.

Reading through the link to the 'Hollie Greig Hoax Team', it seems that somebody reported TPV to Ofcom, resulting in that they couldn't cover it any further for the time being.  The hoax team requested to interview Sonia Poulton so they could put in on *their* website.  This is not Sonia Poulton refusing to interview the hoax team on TPV.  According to the blog, Sonia Poulton "finds our approach hostile and aggressive".  If that's the case, then I'm not surprised that she refuses to be interviewed by them.

So, to summarise: not a refusal to interview the hoax team on TPV, but a refusal to *be interviewed by* the hoax team - at least that is my reading of the hoax team blog.

Many thanks.

That Hollie Grieg campaign was extremely well orchestrated. I first became aware of it when I saw "Google Hollie Grieg" emblazoned in huge letters of red paint on a dual carriageway bridge hundreds of miles from Scotland. Quite some lengths to go to in pursuance of a hoax crime!

I am very wary of this PVTV. My instinct is not to trust it I'm afraid. We desperately need a message sent to the MSM that swathes of the populace are disenchanted with biased reporting. This is not the response that has the gravitas required for the job and will prove counter-productive in the end when the mockery sets in.

The one and only glimpse I had of this Sonia Poulton in action left me distinctly underwhelmed. She stumbled over her words and proceeded to tug on her front teeth, admonishing herself to: "Get your teeth in Sonia".

I would suggest she gets her teeth into something resembling serious journalism instead of randomly issuing invites to all-comers with no thought to balancing viewpoints.

Re the sign painted on a bridge, it's certainly not the only time that a hoax has gained legs and a lot of supporters!

I was certainly seething with rage myself at the injustice of it all when I first heard about this case but, once I became aware of the facts, I realised that nothing that Anne Greig says can be substantiated.

P.S. In my opinion, having encountered Stephen Birch both here and on Facebook, I don't think there can be any doubt that he is mentally unbalanced.

In fact that's not the point at issue.  PTV. Should have gathered information from both sides of the case before they ever broadcast anything. That's called preparation.  All we've had so far is acouple of talking heads.

So far all I've seen and heard is thoroughly unprofessional imo.
It looks as if anyone requesting airtime for their particular  purpose is getting it -  surely it's rather strange, these haphazard  set of interviews. I see no purpose in these at all, perhaps if I  contact PTV I can get an interview on my chosen subject. I have a feeling I might be expected to give a donation as the need for money was highlighted by Icke.

So whether they've been reported to Ofcom or not, the bolded bit above is ridiculous. This seasoned journalist has come over all frightened by these nasty hostile hoax people. Diddums.  splat

Actually, I've read the twitter conversation linked by aquila, and I stand corrected. Sonia Poulton does appear to have refused to interview them on 13th December, before this Ofcom stuff. So it's down to her, and the title isn't wrong.

Thanks aquila  big grin

So what do you think of PVT so far whatliesbehindthesofa?

Do you think that it is a fair representation of truth and facts?

I appreciate you are bothered about the title of the thread possibly being misleading - but there are lots of misleading things I've seen so far regarding PVT (not least something to suggest Martin Grime would ever enter into negotiations with anyone). The choice of presenter is a bit of a surprise (for me anyway). The introduction to this new 'news channel' (I've yet to see any news) is weird...and the ramblings of Sonia Poulton don't make sense to me.

For anyone who hasn't seen Sonia Poulton's stuff re PVT please look it up on YouTube - you won't find Cristobell's interview on there - apparently the new bloke who started last Monday has still yet to post it up.

I still don't understand whether I have to subscribe to it and pay a quid or whether it's a Skype thing or a YouTube thing.

I`m surprised SP finds the HGHT hostile and aggressive when she can spar with Katie Hopkins very competently.

She seems a fair minded person so perhaps she will take time to absorb the content of their website and also watch the video with Wyn and Sylvia - that`s what convinced me.  And if you`re reading this Sonia there is a very informative thread here :-

I did - and i reported them to Advot - but Ofcom have received further complaints from others also.
 
But lets bring you guys some facts.
 
1. We contacted SP before her interview with Robert Green and gave her a short synopsis of the story containing facts and evidence as well as the link to our website. We sent this information using her website contact form (which is also where her phone number can be found). I contacted Sonia via twitter to ask if she had received it. She claimed she had not because she was "locked out" of her website.
 
2. Sonia gave us another email address at TPV so we used that one and sent her the same email.
 
3. At no point did Sonia say we could have a right of reply until we asked for it - again on twitter to which she agreed.
 
4. Then we received an email from her stating that "some sore loser" reported the Hollie Greig coverage to Ofcom so blah blah balh see it here for yourselves here
 
5. The we sent a couple of emails and a number of pertinent questions and facts via twitter to Sonia, including a request to interview her so she could keep her word and give us a right of reply.

Initially we heard nothing and Sonia blocked the HGH twitter account. I used my twitter account to send further questions and facts of the case and i called her mobile number and asked her for an interview. She was very upset and said she found my approach "hostile and aggressive" and that all she wanted was people to be interviewed and slammed the phone down - a fact that she is blissfully unaware off.
 
Our emails were extremely cordial and i am of course willing to make them public. The twitter questions and facts were strong and questioning, and why not after we had been blocked and ignored.
 
I believe that is the real problem.
 
Sonia was called out - publicly - and she didn't like it. Her integrity was questioned and it remains so - as is the integrity of the station itself.
 
Most individuals perform one action when put on the spot and have have to answer difficult questions and perhaps admit they were wrong - they attack - and that is what Sonia has done.
 
Although i have to say that whilst i do not believe Sonia performed anywhere enough research on this story (she even got the CICA payment wrong fgs) i think she has been used by David Icke and i genuinely feel sorry for her. She seems to have her heart in the right place but this aint mainstream - its a lot harder than that!
 
We never believed we would have a right of reply because David Icke is complicit - how is he going to let one of his own give us that when for years he has been ignoring us and refusing to engage in a dialogue let alone promoting the story of Hollie Greig himself?
 
If TPV is a station that will allow anyone on without checking the veracity of information being broadcast, and simply taking peoples word at face value - that what is it worth?
 
In my view it's simply another alternative media station exploiting the people for donations, using sensationalised stories to provoke and emotional response in doing so.
 
Exploitation financially and emotionally.
 
When these guys are supposed to be on our side - i think that's worse than all the corrupt politicians, bankers and corporations put together.
 
Peace.

Re: Another serious blunder for Sonia Poulton and 'The People's Voice' - They interview Robert Green, but refuse to interview the Hollie Greig Hoax Team
