BBC puts up bogus evidence to support Corbyn ‘coup’

The Canary has been doing good work. Here, it rips apart the claims that Jeremy Corbyn and his aides deliberately sabotaged Labour’s ‘Remain’ campaign in the EU referendum.

Apparently these claims were made by the BBC’s Tory-supporting political editor, Laura Kuenssberg, and are based on nothing more but cherry-picked quotes from leaked emails, taken out of context.

This is what passes as journalism in the great British public service broadcaster these days.

On 26 June the BBC published a ‘scoop‘ about Jeremy Corbyn. The expose, by that titan of objectivity Laura Kuenssberg, details leaked emails from the Labour party. Supposedly, they prove that Corbyn’s office attempted to “sabotage” the party’s Remain campaign in the EU referendum.

In reality, the emails prove nothing of the sort. But the BBC’s choice to publish them proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the organisation is hell bent on sabotaging Corbyn. And consequently, determined to vandalise the democratic will of everyone who voted him in.

And this is what we call our ‘public service’ broadcaster.

The emails themselves are not sent from Corbyn’s office and are not published in the BBC article. The broadcaster merely handpicks a few select quotes from them, and allows Kuenssberg to let rip in her analysis of the cache. Essentially the sparse selection of leaked emails – that we never see – takes aim at two particular targets.

    Alan Johnson – someone with a much closer connection to Labour’s working-class base than Corbyn will ever have – spilt the beans last night at the PLP about the way he was undermined. The Canary, as I always say, is for the birds.

    People need to realise that it’s impossible for the Establishment propaganda-wing BBC to be impartial and unbiased. It has a shameful history of fabricating and manipulating the ‘News’ to support the War Industry, Israel, etc. But its main enemy has always been left-wingers like Jeremy Corbyn i.e. the biggest threat to the unfair, unjust status quo i.e. the Establishment.

    Either totally lazy jounalist not checking her sources professionally or very biased professional who has no place in independant media….either way she needs showing the exit door promptly as not being up to the job and as a fee payer I object to paying any licence fee to an overpaid puppet muppet.

    Could Mr. Corbyn sue Laura Kuennsberg for this? Emails belong to the person who writes them and their content should not be passed on without permission. Be wonderful if she has finally stepped over the mark in her determined effort to use our BBC funding to block and mock the socialist voice.

      So journalists shouldn’t report on leaked information for fear of being sued? What a powerful message that would send about freedom of the press in the highly unlikely event that Corbyn were to assume power!

        The issue here is whether the report is fair and balanced.
        If it isn’t, then Ms Kuennsberg has indeed put herself in a very actionable position.

        Please do not attribute words or ideas to people that they have not used. Your claim that Ros Curwood is saying journalists should not report on leaked information for fear of being sued is a misrepresentation of what she wrote – as you no doubt knew when you were writing it.
