EXCLUSIVE: The #VicarGate Story – Part 2
The final weekend of November was one of the most surreal and amazing experiences in all my time on Social media, my first big news story!
In this podcast, I tell the whole #Vicargate story, from my perspective, which is something I wish I had been able to do from the start, but there is the argument that if I covered this story in the same way I covered everything else, noone would have seen it and it would never have trended at number 1 in the UK (on Twitter).
This is the story of the weekend when Stevie Smith, one of the lowest ranking Journalists, or “Investigative Podcasters” in the UK Exposed “BBC Newsnight’s” use of Actors, living metaphors and passive lies, to warp the perceptions of the UK into doing what our Government and “impartial” national broadcaster wants us to do!
Welcome back to the #ABZ Podcast for part 2 of this epic tale!
In Part 2, we look at the latter part of the #VicarGate investigation, and my thoughts of how the story broke, including…
- The Hashtag #VicarGate
- Trending in the UK
- The BBC’s Responses to myself and other Journalists
- The BBC Doubling down on the lies
- Who was Darren?
- I look at BBC Bias and how they attempted to use their platform to dominate the situation.
- I look at how the BBC Newsnight team manage to make this much bigger than it every should be.
- Comments from Lynn and Darren on the story.
At the end of this show, I also talk about my views on how this story broke and gained traction, as this all happened so fast that I never had the chance to get a story ready to record, or profit from it in any way, it all happened in a flash! (I am still blown away!)
If you would like to see the research / Evidence on this topic, please head to my Twitter @StevieCABZ . Most for the evidence is spread over many Twitter threads. I will endevour to bring them all together into one web page as soon as I can. ) but remember, the #VicarGate hashtag is brimming with news stories on this, and more evidence discovered by the Independant. (I wish i had resources like them!)

Let me know what YOU thought of the Vicargate story, by heading to Twitter and using the #VicarGate hashtag.
I have so many people to thank, for helping me with the research I think that I managed to personally thank every person who helped via twitter, but If I missed you out, and to all the Journalists, activists and LORDS, who took this story and made this go viral, THANK YOU!
This, as I said, is my first big story, so the fact that people took it, and made it a true sensation very humbling.
I have been researching and analysing media Bias and lies for a long time now. I Am currently a mature student, and completely self-funded which makes this kind of investive journalism quite hard.
