Respect! Vox Political and Another Angry Voice Mentioned on Newsnight

Congratulations to Mike over at Vox Political and the Angry Yorkshireman. Both these two gents, along with Media Diversified and Novara Media, were mentioned by Kerry-Ann Mendoza, the woman behind the pro-Corbyn blog, The Canary, when she appeared on Newsnight. Mendoza contrasted the fresh approach and perspective of these blogs and news sites, with the dullness and conformity of mainstream media political reporting. She stated that the journalists on these sites all graduated as being either six inches to the left or six inches to the right of each other. So, well done, lads!

And Mendoza herself has caused a stir. Her blog is clearly considered important enough by Private Eye and its squad of Blairites and outraged Tories to be targeted regularly for criticism by the satirical magazine. And someone on its staff is very clearly an outraged Tory, as the magazine was very scornful about the story of David Cameron inserting himself into a pig’s head when he was at Oxford. The Eye considered this an horrendous slur. It probably was, but for the rest of us, who’ve been hit hard by his wretched policies of privatisation and austerity – but only for the poor – it was highly amusing. The Eye clearly sees Mendoza and her championing of Jeremy Corbyn as a threat to the continued security of British Thatcherism that must be attacked at every opportunity. So she’s very definitely doing something right!

    The clip: Newsnight 22/08/16 Kerry-anne Mendoza

    This piece was put on YouTube by Ric B, his comment below the clip is useful:

    “Note the programme is entitled ‘Is the media biased against Jeremy Corbyn?’ Which is deceptive as there are several good studies showing it is. So to pose this as an unresolved question is to ignore the already established evidence and stall further discussion of what then to do about the bias and why it exists. This is a common tactic of corporate media to stymy discourse so it remains stalled at an eternal first question stage which benefits hegemonic forces and disadvantages change.”
