La BBC: Ministry of truth

Quand les faits ne sont pas comme vous les voulez, pas de panique. Comme le Ministry of Truth vous n'avez qu'à les changer.

C'est cette pratique qu'a utilisé la BBC avec le discour d'Obama.
Comme le discour n'avait pas assez de «punch» à leur goût sur les questions d'environnement, voici ce qu'ils ont fait dire à M. Obama:

We will restore science to its rightful place, [and] roll back the spectre of a warming planet. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories.
Voici le lien sur l'émission en question:  Obama's first 100 days: Environment
Vous pouvez entendre M. Obama prononcant ces paroles dès le début de l'émission.

Mais voila. Le problème est que tout ceci n'est qu'un montage audio. Voici ce qu'a dit exactement M. Obama dans son discour:

[Paragraphe 16]
For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act - not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do.

[Paragraphe 22]
We are the keepers of this legacy. Guided by these principles once more, we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort - even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people, and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we will work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the spectre of a warming planet. We will not apologise for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.

Pas tout à fait pareil non ?
