The ‘hissing’ row reveals the real reason Corbyn’s message on ‘Brexit’ isn’t getting through

Eloquent example: Jeremy Corbyn speaking in favour of remaining in the EU on June 2. But the press chose to report that one of their own number was hissed when she asked a question.

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.”

    The hissing only lasted a second or two!! (Didn’t hear much booing either).

    The media are always more interested in BAD news, and the “bad” news at present is the NASTY in fighting within the Tory Party. re EU. So the media ARE GUILTY OF MAKING THE eu DEBATE NONSENSICAL, and turning people off. We should have been hearing for all the parties both sides, in a constructive manner, instead of this terrible mud slinging and missleading statisics, and POSSIBLE future senarios. We need to consentrate on the POSITIVE side of things.

    Where have all the real reporters gone ie those not dancing to the tune of their millionaire puppet masters. Catch 22…. write a serious truthful piece and you end up on the dole Q…….feels like the Elite are as bad as the communists regimes if the press and media are so impotent

    Is the problem really the media or is it the behaviour of Corbyn supporters who appear to be obsessed with how they are perceived by the media, to the extent that they are more interested in discussing this than the most important debate the people of Britain have had in my (40+) lifetime?

      Corbyn’s supporters really aren’t interested in discussing this; the right-wing media reporters are – because it diverts attention away from what you describe as the most important debate the people of Britain have had in your lifetime.
      It proves Corbyn is right about media portrayals of him.
