There’s no update on the summit meeting between the Electoral Commission and police forces investigating the allegations of Tory electoral fraud – so here’s something for you to consider.
While members of the public have been clamouring for coverage, most of the mainstream news channels – papers, TV, radio – have resolutely ignored it.
But they jump when just one or two people complain about programme content.
Perhaps the answer is to write in to your favourite news purveyor with a letter marked clearly, “COMPLAINT”, and demand to know why they aren’t covering a story that is clearly of significant image to large numbers of the public.
With over 30,000 tweets [yesterday, May 3], the hashtag #ToryElectionFraud had been trending on Twitter at number 3, and [was] (at the time of writing) the sixth most tweeted-about issue.
However, with such a big political news story currently unfurling, you would have expected the media to be all over it like a rash – just as they were with the Ken Livingstone anti-Semitism saga last week.
Despite the furore that Channel 4’s investigation has created, there has been virtually no other coverage from the mainstream media of this deeply undemocratic scandal. And Twitter was rightly outraged at the lack of coverage.
