Respect! Vox Political and Another Angry Voice Mentioned on Newsnight

August 24, 2016

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!
