Newsnight Episode Mentioning Vox Political, Plus Comment by YouTube Poster

The other day I congratulated Mike over at Vox Political, the Angry Yorkshireman and a couple of other bloggers for being mentioned on Newsnight by Kerry-Anne Mendoza, the woman behind The Canary blog. She contrasted their fresh, radical political perspective with the dull consensus of the established media. Michelle, one of the great commenters on this blog, found it posted on YouTube, along with the appropriate comment by the poster. She wrote:

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.”

    Great you reposted the Newsnight link, Kerry Ann (scriptonite) of The Canary was brilliant, while a couple of the other guests were practicing their diversionary tactics. 😊
