Amazing interview. If only all multi billionaires would be so altruistic. If they can manage to eradicate polio (and its looking good) what an amazing thing that would be.

Another interview with Bill Gates on the topic of Polio eradication from the BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-21207601

 

Seems he is also to give the 2013 BBC Richard Dimbleby Lecture on the topic (broadcast Tuesday 29 January on BBC One at 22:35 GMT).

Thankfully, we have the alternative media with another side to this story, otherwise people might believe this propaganda put out by the BBC, which is getting less and less believable as people wake up. This has been highlighed recently by the BBC's handling of the Jimmy Savile child abuse situation which happened right under their noses for decades.

Thanks for thinking of us!

To garner attention for the issues it cares about, the foundation has invested millions in training programs for journalists. It funds research on the most effective ways to craft media messages. Gates-backed think tanks turn out media fact sheets and newspaper opinion pieces. Magazines and scientific journals get Gates money to publish research and articles. Experts coached in Gates-funded programs write columns that appear in media outlets from The New York Times to The Huffington Post, while digital portals blur the line between journalism and spin.
