Media 70: The Times exposed – again: “ignore the media spin and read beyond headlines!”

In April, a Murdoch Press attack on Jeremy Corbyn was wrongfooted and once more The Times latest Corbyn strike has been clearly refuted.

The Times offered a fragment of truth: “Len McCluskey said that Mr Corbyn and John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, were “not egomaniacs” and would not try to “cling on” at the head of the party” – admirable – woven into a web of insinuations, carefully selected quotes and wishful thinking.

Unite’s McCluskey offered a full rebuttal and reaffirmed support for Jeremy Corbyn on Twitter:

len-m“Jeremy Corbyn continues to have my full support, he’s a genuine, decent man fighting for a fairer Britain – media headlines distort facts!

“As well as my full support Jeremy Corbyn has support of our elected executive who actually make decisions for Unite. As we said this morning ignore the media spin and read beyond headlines!”

His reward: the ‘failed plotters’ are hoping to unseat him and replace him by a more amenable general secretary.
