Real News About Fake News

Ah, Kuenssberg, “Journalist of the Year” or something.

As my friend Alex Nunns, the author of the definitive book on Corbyn’s rise, puts it on Facebook:

“After the Paris attacks, the BBC ran a story saying Corbyn would not allow armed police to kill terrorists in a similar situation.

“It was one of the big negative stories that really cut through and shaped how people saw Corbyn.

“It turns out that it was fake news—the BBC/Laura Kuenssberg did a job on Corbyn, taking his answer to another question and presenting it as if he was talking about Paris.”

The Orgreave Broadcasting Corporation is still at it after all these years.

  1. The lack of coverage of this is itself fake news.
