Why does Jeremy Corbyn STILL face constant attacks – with LIES – in the media?

One has to admire the resilience of the man.

More than two years after he retired from the leadership of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn is still bombarded with unsupported attacks on his character and behaviour.

We all know, now, that claims of rampant anti-Semitism within Labour during his leadership were lies. Accusations were confected for political reasons and were false.

Similarly, claims that he was a supporter of terrorist organisations like the IRA and Hamas were also lies; he is a pacifist and would never approve of the use of violence to achieve political ends.

But still the accusations fly – today, from client journalists like Olivia Utley of the Torygraph and a comedian called Matt Forde, on the BBC’s Politics Live.

Sadly, little attempt was made to balance their nonsense with factual evidence.

Anti-Semitism in the Labour Party was reduced during Mr Corbyn’s time as leader – and that was from a level lower than the national average or any other UK political party.

The investigation of the party by the Equality and Human Rights Commission was requested for political reasons and eventually reported that the party was not institutionally anti-Semitic.

Forde’s attacks on Bell Ribeiro-Addy, referring to the investigation, were misleading. I think he must have known this and question why he behaved in that manner. It surprises me that nobody at the BBC thought to question it in any way.

Perhaps This Writer can redress the balance here, with something the BBC broadcast a while ago:

It seems there’s at least one broadcaster there who still knows what a fact is.
