#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia | I think we all get why off shore oligarch billionaires who own the press hate Corbyn but why are the “independent” TV news biased?
This Thread on that blatant bias, first Jeremy himself calls it out..
#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia | The bias against Corbyn has led to the distortion of truth on an industrial scale. Here @OwenJones84 calls out just one example much to the BBC presenter’s annoyance
#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia | The BBC, strangely for the “impartial” public broadcaster is the most biased. Listen to this clip on how the BBC describe Corbyn to its World Service audience as being in the “pro Soviet Union camp”
#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia |
The most shocking thing about the BBC bias against Corbyn is how pervasive it is. It’s not just the slanted editorialising but even the captions they use..
#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia |
The biased captioning was particularly noticeable and blatant during the weekly #PMQs broadcast. They now seem to have stopped doing this after complaints but keep checking.
#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia | This micro level bias against Corbyn hit the headlines after it’s use on Newsnight. It exposed how far back that programme’s bias as Corbyn goes back.
#BrokenMedia | #PoliticalBias | #BroadcastMedia | This Thread used examples from the BBC. They are the most blatant and frequent violator in terms of bias against Corbyn. But they’re NOT alone, Sky, ITV do similar just not on the same scale. So, always watch out for bias!

#BBCBias off the scale on #bbcbreakfast
The segment was about 4 minutes, the clip below is a short edit of a propaganda piece. No fact checking or asking for evidence by the presenter who clearly has her own agenda given this soft interview.
More details on this THREAD..
Bias highlights (1)
- Progress described as a “Labour think tank”. They’re NOT. They organise in Labour, have contributed to candidate slates in internal elections etc. And crucially have been vehemently against Corbyn from day one. No reference to this or questioning of motives
Bias highlights (2)
Progress person allowed to say:
- Labour has taken no action on anti semitism (this is patently false, why not questioned the way #VictoriaLIVE did?
- Bullying widespread through Labour. No asking for what basis or evidence there is for saying this.

Stop taking the bait!
That's my message to all comrades on the Left. Stop taking the bait from provocation posts from Blairites and hard core extreme zionists. Us engaging with these posts is exactly what they want.
This THREAD on why and what to do instead..
These posts some by minor personalities are distractions. They don't cut through to the wider public. These posts are not designed to persuade anyone but to bait. They're aim is to stoke up their own bubble and to get a reaction from their opponents, us.
By reacting, we do two things that help them, not us:
1) their message gets amplified to a bigger audience and 2) they get a negative reaction which allows them to portray themselves as victims.

Chuka Umunna is the media's go to person when they want a Labour comment on many things especially Brexit, even though he's not a front bencher and doesn't support Labour Brexit position. For fairness the media should be truthful about his history as covered on the Thread below:
The core question about Chuka Umunna: Is he principled or just an opportunist? Take a people's vote, i.e. another referendum on #Brexit. He's championing one now but only a short while ago he was dead against one.
The core question about Chuka Umunna: Is he principled or just an opportunist? For instance a people's vote, another referendum on #Brexit. He's pushing for one now but only a short while ago not only was he against it, he voted against a vote!
