Channel 4 is funded by advertising. And we’ve already established that I am not an employee of Channel 4.

That’s a silly use of the word propaganda. There are plenty of people in the world suffering real propaganda. I can point you to a million stories we have run that embarrass the government of the day. How could that happen if we were outlets of state propaganda?

Channel 4 is a public corporation, yes. If you think that means the government interferes in our work, I would love to see the evidence. And of course, the FactCheck team are not directly employed by Channel 4.

I don't take an overarching view of the EU. What I am denying is the veracity of most of things on that document. You don't create balance by telling lies.

I think has had a look at this. My fear with this is that it's so ridiculous that to write a blog about it would be to give it too much publicity. It's just bonkers.

We were (I think) the first people to expose the “350m for the NHS” lie, amongst other things.

Certainly not. You make an interesting point. Do you have any particular MPs in mind?
