Murdoch's Empire latest attack on Corbyn is vilest yet.



It seems that Sky Mews is intent on becoming like its  US equivalent Fox news a vile right wing propaganda machine attacking everything that does not fit into their world view

Take this article by  Jon Craig Chief Political Correspondent on a report by Sky News claiming  that Mr. Corbyn, Jeremy Corbyn was under fire and this time those venting anger included Labour M.P.s. following the alleged reported killing of Jihadi John, where Mr Corbyn  in a statement said

 "It appears Mohammed Emwazi has been held to account for his callous and brutal crimes. However, it would have been far better for us all if he had been held to account in a court of law."

His statement which I for one agree with was issued well before the terrible terror attacks on Paris late Friday and early Saturday morning.



According to Sky News,

His critics are now calling him "Jihadi Jez". That’s because Jeremy Corbyn said it would have been better to put Mohammed Emwazi on trial instead of killing him.
The backlash against the Labour leader’s comments has ranged from fury to ridicule. And that’s just among Labour MPs and party supporters. But is the criticism fair?
In his statement, Mr Corbyn said: "It appears Mohammed Emwazi has been held to account for his callous and brutal crimes. However, it would have been far better for us all if he had been held to account in a court of law."
At least he was being consistent. In 2011, he suggested it was a "tragedy" that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had been "assassinated" rather than being brought before the courts. That comment was bitterly attacked, too.
But on Emwazi, Mr Corbyn went further, adding: "These events only underline the necessity of accelerating international efforts, under the auspices of the UN, to bring an end to the Syrian conflict as part of a comprehensive regional settlement.
No name are given of Labour critics so they could anybody. I honestly don't think any MP would be so stupid.


For those of us on the Progressive Left  who doubt Mr Corbyn election wil make a difference to Labour's  long to the shift to the right  and will still look towards Plaid, SNP,and the Greens it is still disturbing that Mr Corbyn is being trated to such a vile attack.

If this is going tp me the standard of Murdoch's media  from his Newspapers as well as Sky News then the very democracy of a balanced and fair 5th estate is terrifying .

We cannot expect out Media to be neutral but we can expect it to be fair.

Murdoch  has a tendency to back whichever Party he believes  will win an election in the UK which explains his sometimes support for the SNP but it is likely that his empire in the UK will soon become like its US counterpart just a very nasty mouthpiece for the extreme right  vilifying any thing that is contrary to their own view'

There is a Petition by Change .org  demanding  Sky News remove this disgusting tasteless headline instantly, followed by an apology for the frivolous and disgraceful use of the term jihadi in this way.

You may have been fighting the Labour Party all of your life but sign it now. We can't allow this sort of smear to continue.
