Defend Qatar, Defend al-Jazeera

By   /  June 26, 2017  /  Keith Locke, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  6 Comments

At some point people are going to admit this 2month old story about a Labour intern slave scandal was just a distraction from Bill & Todd

By   /  June 24, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  30 Comments

Whale Oil confounded by history

By   /  June 23, 2017  /  Leslie Bravery, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  57 Comments

By   /  June 18, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  13 Comments

Panel is Matt McCarten who announces he’s starting a new Campaign For Change movement, Jennifer Curtin and Fran O’Sullivan. Lockwood Smith is on bewildered by the UK election result.
