It isn’t working as well as the left would like. I think too many people know today just how politically corrupt the MSM are and their attempts to smear Farage are frequently counter productive.
A corrupt media is just the worse thing to happen to a nation. Those of us who know history understand the part the film industry and the mainstream media played in the rise of Adolf Hitler, one of the biggest and most murderous tyrants in modern times.
The media onslaught against Farage demonstrates the same kind of corruption. BBC affiliated Channel 4 in the UK recently ran a program called “UKIP: The first 100 days” which presented a disgustingly dishonest version of what might happen if the UKIP gained govt.
The program depicted rioting on the streets that would presumably happen if UKIP were to win the general election, mixing archive footage with imagined scenes. The show has prompted more than 700 complaints to media watchdog Ofcom since its broadcast on Monday night. There were another 250 complaints made to Channel 4.
Speaking on LBC Radio, UKIP MEP and parliamentary candidate Gerald Batten called the docudrama “a piece of bile and vitriol from our political opponents”.
“Political debate is one thing, and having a debate where people can put another point of view, or even a factual documentary about a political party. But this wasn’t that,” said Mr Batten.
Channel 4 said the show was fully in compliance with the broadcasting code and its “obligations to be fair, accurate and duly impartial”.
Nigel Farage says the feedback he has suggests the show has backfired, with many people pledging support to the party because of what they perceived as the unfairness of the attack.
The corrupt MSM’s desperate attempts to preserve the status quo are despicable. Cowardly dishonest politically partisan swine who have no regard for the orderly process of democracy.
I hope the UKIP gets up in the UK, and I hope this mainly because it will be one in the eye for the progressive UK mainstream media and their preferred equally hopeless twins Labour and The Conservatives.
