Chloe Hadjimatheou is a broadcast journalist at BBC current affairs[1] who has written a series of BBC documentary articles.[2]

False claims about Syria

In September 2021, the BBC admitted that a BBC Radio 4 documentary on the alleged chemical weapon Douma attack in Syria contained serious inaccuracies.

The Corporation's Executive Complaints Unit (ECU) upheld a protest from Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens following last November's broadcast of "Mayday: The Canister On The Bed." Adjudicators agreed that the programme by BBC investigative journalist Chloe Hadjimatheou failed to meet the Corporation's editorial standards for accuracy by reporting false claims.[3]

On Press TV, John Wight said the BBC has covered the Syrian conflict "not as a news organisation but as participants on the side of a medieval opposition of 7th century head-chopping fanatics." The BBC's coverage is more like that of a "propaganda outfit."[4]

John Wight: "BBC stands disgraced as a propaganda outfit"
