JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: METHODS OF NEWSPAPER PROPAGANDA – YET ONE MORE THINLY-DISGUISED ATTACK ON JEREMY CORBYN IN THE GUARDIAN   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

“Why I joined the Labour party – and why I’m thinking of leaving” is the one-sided headline for an article which in fact examines the very different views of two people.

Why is that?

Of course, more anti-Corbyn propaganda.

Kate Levey’s blubbering about dithering is typical stuff from the crowd of warmongers who support bombing in Syria.

I really think she should quit the party instead of blubbering about doing so. Her presence is not the asset she appears to believe it is.

Andrew Moore offers a sensible summary of his views, but why isn’t his view the one featured in the headline?

It is propaganda because editors well know many readers never go beyond scanning headlines on some topics, and this headline just serves to reinforce the media orchestration of an anti-Corbyn chorus.

Crappy journalism. Good propaganda made of what is ostensibly a balanced article.
