The TR.News team have now released more footage of the BBC’s reporter in exile John Sweeney. The question – is John Sweeney Blackmailing The BBC?
It was the 23rd of February 2019. The venue was Media City, the Northern headquarters of the BBC where the explosive documentary Panodrama, produced by Tommy Robinson and his team, was aired to thousands of people in attendance.
Was it just a coincidence that the BBC ignored the revelatory expose of a self-confessed pisshead by a working-class lad who is supposedly a far-right nutjob? John Sweeney had an agenda; he set out to besmirch, slander, defame and destroy Tommy Robinson by any means necessary. He did this with the aid of Panorama programme-makers, hoping he could use false, salacious allegations and then pass them off as “investigative journalism”.

Classist Fake-News Propagandists
Some journalists have said that John Sweeney attempted to put an end to the supposed “far-right” shenanigans of Tommy Robinson and company. His attempt as it were, failed spectacularly as he got exposed for the classist, racist, homophobic, anti-working class pissed up degenerate he is.
Quoting John Sweeney:
“…it was unusual to meet a white working-class male in the Newsnight green room. It was so unusual that me and one of my mates went down there to have a drink with him in the way that you would do with somebody, from the, you know a cannibal from the Amazonian, erm, from Amazonia or maybe a creature from outer space”.
John Sweeney is a truely reprehensible individual. He is a man prepared to push out falshoods as long as they serve his political, cultural and journalistic ideals, and possibly those of his bosses at the BBC. The airing of Panodrama had the BBC reeling in embarrassment. An unnamed spokesperson for the BBC said at the time:
“The BBC strongly rejects any suggestion that our journalism is ‘faked’ or biased.
Any programme we broadcast will adhere to the BBC’s strict editorial guidelines.
Some of the footage which has been released was recorded without our knowledge during this investigation, and John Sweeney made some offensive and inappropriate remarks, for which he apologises. BBC Panorama’s investigation will continue.”

The irony of a BBC spokesperson whining about footage being released without their knowledge is laughable. Does the Panorama programme-makers not use covert methods for undercover investigations for their own supposed exposes? The droning, whinging, whining dins emanating from the BBC hierarchy fall on very deaf ears. Can the BBC blame people for “tuning out” when they are found to be corrupt, riddled with paedophile cover-ups and the ability and willingness to push a fake-news narrative?
The BBC is supposed to report the news not manufacture the news!
To put it bluntly, the BBC were angered for being exposed as the political media arm of the ruling establishment. It came as no surprise that Tommy Robinsons remaining social-media platforms got dissolved, banned or restricted entirely after the damaging expose, how convenient was that?
The White Knights Of The NUJ
As Tommy Robinsons Panodrama documentary circulated online, the BBC was very much in a position of damage limitation; they needed all the help they could get. In ride the white knights of the NUJ (The National Union Of Journalists). The NUJ, the proponents of, and defenders of media establishmentarianism rushed to the rescue of their bedfellows in the BBC.
An NUJ spokesperson said they:
“Roundly condemn Tommy Robinson… and his fellow, far-right thugs who intend to intimidate staff at the corporation, particularly those working on Panorama.
BBC staff should be free to do their jobs without these threats.
Intimidation, threats and violence carried out by far-right protesters systematically targeting the media, especially photojournalists, are becoming more frequent, and we will always call out this behaviour and report criminal activity to the police.”
The “intimidation” the NUJ is referring to is that Tommy dared to confront and expose the truth of BBC corruption. Not forgetting, of course, the pissed up antics of John Sweeney who has a hard-on for manufacturing salacious news stories.
It is not hard to understand why the NUJ are so opposed to Tommy Robinson. It is not hard to understand why they are staunch defenders of those in the BBC who sought and still seek to besmirch, slander, defame and destroy him. Just take a look at how many “affiliations” they have with hostile Trades Unions and Non-Governmental Organisations.
Peter Murray, the former President of the NUJ, worked with Islamist organisations to push for an inquiry into the “Anti-Islam Press”. This is just one example of how slanted the NUJ is in terms of its leaderships ideological bias. No wonder they attack Tommy Robinson’s character rather than the substance of his reporting.
BBC Investigating Panorama?
The Daily Mail published an article on the 17th of August; it has just been updated today, the 19th of August. The article tells its readership that the BBC is investigating Panorama journalist John Sweeney after his booze-filled meeting with Tommy’s former assistant Lucy Brown. The article accurately reports that the BBC had set up an investigation of Tommy Robinson with the help of Hope Not Hate, a far-left online rag run by Nick Lowles who happens not to be a fan of Tommy.
The Daily Mail article touches on John Sweeney’s potty mouth, his attempt to collude with a former associate of Tommy’s and the amount of TV licence payers money he spent on alcohol as an “expense”. The Daily Mail confirmed that John is hiding away in Italy (possibly drowning himself in bottles of Sangiovese) while the BBC decide on any disciplinary action they may or may not take.
It is quite amusing that the revelation of John Sweeny’s “expenses paid” alcoholic binge did not go down well with the TV licence paying public. If you click HERE you will find a disgruntled member of the public who sent a freedom of information request asking for the following information:
I want all food and drink expenses data relating to Sweeney and Panorama for the last 5 years, and state what was paid by you and what was not.
This should include all receipts, card payment
data etc. so we can get a full picture of the spending.
Provide current and recent BBC policy on food and drink expenses for Sweeney and Panorama. ”
Sadly the BBC refused to provide that information because it is held for the purposes of ‘journalism, art or literature’ therefore the BBC were not “obliged” to provide that information.
What the Daily Mail article left out was the fact that John Sweeney tried to get Lucy Brown to invent fake sexual allegations against Tommy. They also left out the fact that he was actually “coaching” her in what to say. It was clear John Sweeney attempted to “beef up” his documentary of fiction and fallacy by manufacturing a serious allegation of sexual exploitation against Tommy.

What a devious little cretin John Sweeney is, no wonder he works for the biased broadcasting corporation of propagandised fake-news.
The fact that Panodrama was aired in February this year and it is only now that any reporting on the BBC investigation into John Sweeney’s attempted set up of Tommy Robinson has come about, is in and of itself, quite telling.
A whole six months later, it looks like the BBC are willing to push another narrative, some kind of justification or excuse for John Sweeney’s behaviour, some way of saving face maybe?

The Conclusion – Or Is It?
Unfortunately for the BBC and John Sweeney, we have over eight hours of recorded footage from two meetings he had with Lucy Brown. We only used a small sample of that footage in the expose documentary of Panorama. The video embedded above this article is only one piece of footage we have that we never put out into the public domain; there’s plenty more.
Regarding the video above, we will let our readers come to their own conclusions. However, some journalists have said it seems as though John Sweeney may have dirt on the BBC, which is why he has kept his job for so long? If he has had many letters asking him to resign and he has had to “get nasty” and threaten to “sue” the BBC, there could be a lot more to uncover. Given the BBC’s record of “cover ups” who knows what dirt John Sweeney may have on them?
