Pointing the finger: Ken Loach accused The Guardian of undermining the Labour Party’s leadership – so The Guardian changed the meaning of his letter.

Draw your own conclusions from this.

It seems I, Daniel Blake director Ken Loach was more incensed even than This Writer at The Guardian‘s continued support for that wing of the Labour Party that lays claim to the word “moderate” while pursuing policies that can only be described as strongly right-wing, in the context of the party and its history.

His letter, in response to the story I mentioned in this article, is below:

From what he says in his tweet, it seems The Guardian chose to censor – I don’t have to be as diplomatic as Mr Loach – the most damning lines in the letter.

This action changes the tone of the entire letter – from one that criticises the newspaper to an attack on the right-wing Labour MPs it has been supporting.

‘Doctoring’ quotations is one of the cardinal sins of journalism – even more so, when the meaning of an entire letter is changed.
