The mainstream media, unsurprisingly, is less than thrilled about Jeremy Corbyn’s plans to democratise, and improve the transparency of… the mainstream media.
One of the tactics used yesterday to try to disparage Corbyn’s plan – which he announced today during his “Alternative Mactaggart Lecture” at the Edinburgh TV festival – went something like this:
“Ha, he says he wants to improve transparency but he won’t even let us take a camera in!“.
It was fake news. They got a camera in. And so far they appear not to be showing the speech. Presumably they’re not too interested in telling viewers that one party leader has a plan to improve the accountability of the mainstream media to viewers and readers.
So, since the MSM won’t show you it, here it is in full:
It’s a radical and innovative plan to make the media genuinely serve the people they’re supposed to: you and me. Judging by the reaction of the Establishment media today, they’re very unhappy about it, unsurprisingly.
Enjoy – and share widely.
