Could there have been a better example of exactly what Jeremy Corbyn meant, than what actually happened after his speech yesterday (June 2)?

The Canary sums it up very well:

On 2nd June Jeremy Corbyn gave a speech on the upcoming EU referendum. Following the Labour leader making his case for staying in the EU, he was questioned by the media. One of the journalists asked why Corbyn has remained largely ‘silent’ in the Brexit debate so far. He answered:

“It’s partly down to the media and how they report.”

Corbyn’s supposedly muted involvement in the Remain campaign was also a focus of Question Time that same day. An audience member asked:

“With his half hearted support for Remain is Jeremy Corbyn secretly hinting to the British people that we should leave?”

Panelist Owen Jones countered this assertion, and drew his aim firmly at the media:

“He did a speech today and the only thing the press spoke about that speech and its contents was the fact people heckled at it when a BBC reporter spoke, rather than talking about what he said.”
