Media bias against Jeremy Corbyn

Post by astradt1 on Mon Sep 14, 2015 10:16 pm

First topic message reminder :

On day one of the new Labour leader's tenure, the media have been in a frenzy on how to present his moves.........

I feel that we perhaps need to have a thread to highlight the cover he is getting from all media, papers, TV both from the right and left or 'unbiased'......

To kick off:-

Presumably this is the answer to that question:-

For so long as the propaganda machine favours right-wing capitalist opportunists, simple voters will think it sensible to align themselves alongside the apparent winners. The USA seems to be about to magnify inequality and discriminate against minorities. Britain has a tendency to adopt the American model.

If that is democracy we need a new dictionary definition, perhaps confirming that might is right and that greed is good.

Labour Party’s future lies with Momentum, says Noam Chomsky

In an interview with 'The Guardian', Noam Chomsky threw his weight behind Jeremy Corbyn, claiming that Labour would be doing far better in opinion polls if it were not for the “bitter” hostility of the mainstream media. “If I were a voter in Britain, I would vote for him”, said Chomsky, who admitted that the current polling position suggested Labour was not yet gaining popular support for the policy positions that he supported.

“There are various reasons for that – partly an extremely hostile media, partly his own personal style which I happen to like but perhaps that doesn’t fit with the current mood of the electorate”, he said. “He’s quiet, reserved, serious, he’s not a performer. The Parliamentary Labour Party has been strongly opposed to him. It has been an uphill battle.” He said there were a lot of factors involved, but insisted that Labour would not be trailing the Conservatives so heavily in the polls if the media was more open to Corbyn’s agenda. “If he had a fair treatment from the media – that would make a big difference.”

“The shift in the Labour Party under Blair made it a pale image of the Conservatives which, given the nature of the policies and their very visible results, had very little appeal for good reasons.” He said Labour needed to “reconstruct itself” in the interests of working people, with concerns about human and civil rights at its core, arguing that such a programme could appeal to the majority of people.

I was just going to say that. Well not in the same words obviously. But with that customary British sympathy for the underdog, the relentless grinding down of JC in the media must surely have provoked some response in the floating voter.

All day today, 11 May 2017, certain elements of our free press have been gleefully reporting how Jeremy Corbyn's car ran over the foot of a BBC cameraman.

The BBC itself has not mentioned the matter.

It has never been more important for the voting public to assess how much value may be attached to any particle of the unending stream of "news" to which we are exposed.

Meanwhile, Theresa May intends to ride roughshod over most of us.   afraid

Bias against Corbyn

Post by oftenwrong on Sun May 28, 2017 5:26 pm

Unflagging journalists uncovered important "news" surrounding Jeremy Corbyn:

"Files found by The Sunday Times in the London Metropolitan Archives show that Corbyn lobbied the Greater London Council (GLC) in the 1980s to fund a new group called the Irish in Islington Project."

Methinks they do protest too much.

Totally vile smears - surely people everywhere can see the desperation in this type of journalistic hyperbole

The journalistic hyperbole would be hilarious if its cumulative brain-washing were not so definitively skewing public perceptions. But that's what "Freedom of the Press" entails.

Will May Be "Terrorist Sympathiser" After Link With DUP?

‘The Daily Mail’ labelled Jeremy Corbyn a "terrorist sympathiser" due to his links with Sinn Fein during The Troubles in the 1980s. And after Theresa May announced she would attempt to form a minority government with the help of the DUP, James O’Brien wondered if they would get the same treatment Corbyn did.

Speaking on his LBC show, James said: "If there is an ounce, an iota, the vaguest scintilla of integrity in that office over there on Derry Street in Kensington then these DUP MPs are about to get a hauled over the coals in a way that you can't even begin to imagine. Because if Jeremy Corbyn is a terrorist sympathiser, what the hell do you call a political party that was endorsed by the Ulster Defence Association, the Red Hand Commando. Publicly and politically endorsed by the Red Hand Commando, the Ulster Volunteer Force, the Ulster Defence Association. But ooh, Jeremy Corbyn once had a cup of tea with Gerry Adams."

It seems our' strong and stable' Prime Minister may have opened a very nasty can of worms, while simultaneously poking a hornets nest

"A week is a long time in Politics" My apologies for trotting out that old chestnut yet again, but the difference between today's "Sunday Times" and the one of a week ago is like waking up from a bad dream.

All talk of a Hard Brexit has evaporated, and "Leadership Challenge" refers to a different leader of a different party. There is even a humorous report of election-night broadcasters' scripts being quietly shredded at 10.15 p.m. last Thursday.
