When BBC News finally covered the violent assault against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn this morning, it broadcast a short segment about an ‘egging’ – rather than the punch that struck Corbyn in the head, described by eyewitness Diane Abbot: “He punched Jeremy very hard“.
The BBC broadcast the segment with no sound.
The SKWAWKBOX has added subtitles to the video to represent the kind of commentary that would have accompanied the coverage – if the national broadcaster genuinely represented the nation and was concerned for balanced, honest reporting:
The BBC broadcast with sound included half an hour later – and need barely have bothered. Their coverage persisted in trivialising the incident as an ‘egging’ – and did not even mention the fact that the assailant had been charged with ‘assault by beating’.
The Establishment media must really fear the exposure of the consequences of their smear campaigns against Corbyn – and the results of any sympathetic portrayal of the Labour leader.
Or even an honest one.
