Local elections: A truth pill for mainstream media liars

Watch this:

Puts BBC coverage (and that of pretty much all the mainstream news media) in perspective, doesn’t it?

Shall we have some more?

How about this:


It’s not a Labour Parliamentary majority, I know – but it is progress, while the Tories are falling back badly.

It seems everybody has chosen to forget that Labour was defending a high-watermark position on Thursday, so the likelihood of huge numbers of seats changing hands was significantly reduced.

Having said that, you know Theresa May was crowing about the Conservatives holding Wandsworth?

Well, it turns out that more people there voted Labour – it’s just that the numbers voting for individual councillors allowed the Tories to keep control:

Even then, the council would have changed hands if only 141 more people had voted Labour.

So, what can we conclude about the BBC’s (and the rest of the mainstream media’s) rubbish coverage? Tom Pride nails it, I think:

And the fact of the matter? As This Writer’s colleague in the New Left Media, Kerry-Anne Mendoza, puts it (and let’s have those projected Parliamentary figures again):

    I watched the commentary until the early hours of the morning. The spin and bias was nauseating, continuously directing and deflecting to ‘Labours anti Semitism problem’. Dawn Butler MP was on and at approx. 4.05am she completely skewered Liam Fox in regards to anti Semitism and the institutional racism of the Conservative Party. She minced no words.. They kept trying to talk over her but Dawn was having non of it, she executed her facts extremely well and let it out that the leaders office hadn’t just ignored the anti Semitism report as they wee implying but instead it was the previous general secretary who had failed to impose the way forward from the report to deal with anti Semitism, she even went as far to say that the leaders office sent the previous general secretary 3 letters in regards to failing to introduce it. Boom !! We need more of Dawn Butlers !

    That peculiar ‘ostrich gait’ that a lot of torys are displaying lately might be symptomatic of something more profound and disturbing than the after-effects of a recent ‘three-line-whip’!
