Labour leader highlights modus operandi of the Establishment by pointing out failure to ask questions about Boris Johnson abuse of power revelations
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn took Establishment media bias head-on in a ‘piece to camera’ filmed after his appearance on this morning’s Andrew Marr show.
Corbyn was questioned by Marr on a range of issues, as would be expected on a Sunday morning politics programme. But immediately after that interview, Boris Johnson’s deputy Dominic Raab appeared – and was asked nothing about this morning’s claims in a Sunday paper about Johnson’s alleged abuse of power and misuse of public funds:
The reaction of Labour’s base to the ‘head-on’ approach was overwhelmingly positive, with commenters calling for more – much more – of the same:
Establishment bias is the ‘elephant on screen’ of almost every interview by the corporate and Establishment media of Labour representatives.
Pointing it out, plainly and confidently as Corbyn did today, is absolutely the right thing to do.
