Whole ‘MSM’ estate castigated for falling over itself to claim ‘intolerance’ was reason for de Piero’s decision
Labour MP Gloria de Piero has attacked the ‘mainstream’ media for its misrepresentation of the reasons for her decision to step down from Labour’s front bench and not to stand at the next general election.
Ms de Piero announced her decision yesterday.
The ‘MSM’ uniformly rushed, with remarkable consistency, to claim she was standing down because of ‘intolerance’ in the Labour Party:
But this claim was entirely inaccurate – as Ms de Piero pointed out personally:
Very few of the media have yet issued a correction.
The media clearly couldn’t contain their over-eagerness to seize on an MP’s decision for personal reasons to stand down – and it resulted in wholesale fake news. Gloria de Piero didn’t say anything negative about the Labour leadership or mention antisemitism – yet many media outlets immediately claimed her departure was not only because of ‘intolerance’ ‘because of antisemitism’.
Yet again, the ‘MSM’ mislead the British public and most are not even professional enough to correct when they are found out. Well done to Gloria de Piero for correcting the record so promptly and clearly.
