Our newspapers influence us.  They are mainly owned by billionaires with Conservative, tax-avoiding, corporate and Brexit-backing views.   Repeated continually over time, with small variations, they heavily influence and bias our views and decisions. 

Her Majesty´s Leader of the Opposition, the current leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, is the most smeared politician in history.  He is misrepresented over 75% of the time in the press, resulting in him being actively delegitimized in a systematic manner.  Similarly with Greta Thunberg, the young and courageous environmental campaigner, a billionaire CEO is quoted as saying she is “demoralizing for young people”.

The Labour movement and environmentalists, both of which campaign for the interests of the majority of the population, have been misrepresented and under- represented in the media for many years.   The commentators and presenters also repeat the same distortions.  We become accustomed to being fed propaganda instead of fact.

If you believe we need honesty and balance in our society to ensure we read and listen to the truth, sign this petition to ensure it is discussed in parliament – at least it will be a start.
