This afternoon, BBC News showed a spray-paint ‘attack’ on a posted featuring Jeremy Corbyn’s Twitter profile as part of a feature about Theresa May’s continuing Brexit incompetence.
It was clear that the broadcaster had been pre-warned that the stunt was planned – but the coverage made no mention of the fact and the voice-over treated it as if it was an overflow of remainer ‘frustration’ at the Labour leader:
The cameras just happened to be on the spot in plenty of time to film the stunt taking place – and the BBC presented it as a manifestation of remainer ‘frustration’ instead of an act by a handful of people working for a pressure group.
The BBC declined to comment.
