The ‘MSM’ have launched another ridiculous smear-campaign against Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party, this time claiming that the ‘Class War‘ member who harassed Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg and his children yesterday has close Labour links.
As so often, the fake news began with the right-wing Fawkes site, before being swallowed whole by the mainstream media and regurgitated as if fact.
Fawkes reported the initial harassment with a sideways attempt to link the incident to Corbyn by commenting snidely, “kinder, gentler politics“. But clearly this wasn’t blatant enough, so in a follow-up article it was more direct, claiming perpetrator Ian Bone
has considerable links to Corbyn’s Labour Party.
This was amplified by the Murdoch S*n, which linked Bone to Corbyn by claiming Bone is a ‘pal’ of the Labour leader’s brother.
Undeterred by the prospect of imbibing something vomited up by those two rags, mainstream media are now echoing the idea that Corbyn is somehow tainted by association.
But – again as usual – it’s bollocks. Bone is no ally of Corbyn, on the contrary he hates him – and has made that clear in multiple occasions:
It took all of thirty seconds to check – but that’s clearly more trouble than the ‘MSM’ is willing to go to for any semblance of accuracy in its reporting.
Moves are afoot in Parliament to try to curtail the effectiveness of social media in exposing the main source of fake news and abuse – the mainstream media. It’s not hard to understand why and shows how important the ‘new left media’ are to our democracy.
