Political content. Cutting through the distraction. Focusing on what's broken: the system, the media and the economy as well as on the climate crisis.

#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..
(1/6) 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

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..
(1/6) 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.

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.
