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.
