  9. Brexit and the new hostility to participatory democracy
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The reaction to Brexit illustrates the desperate need for the Left to return to first principles. For, as the result broke on social media, a remarkable number of progressives directed their anger not at anti-immigrant demagogues and opportunist politicians but against the voters themselves and the very idea of a referendum in which they might express their will. It's merely the most recent illustration of a growing estrangement from democracy, not only on the mainstream Right but also on the Left.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Jeremy Corbyn today launched a review into the Labour party's supposed "anti-semitism crisis" -- in fact, a crisis entirely confected by a toxic mix of the right, Israel supporters and the media.

    First Published: 2014
    A recent article in FAIR reviewed the findings of its latest study on the quality of political “debate” being aired on the mainstream networks.

Well, it appears we’ve learned nothing.

    In an era of permanent war, economic meltdown and climate ‘weirding’, we need all the champions of truth and justice that we can find. But where are they?

    The Inquisition of Climate Science is the first book to comprehensively take on the climate science denial movement and the deniers themselves, exposing their lack of credentials, their extensive industry funding, and their failure to provide any alternative theory to explain the observed evidence of warming. Lawrence Powell's book clearly reveals that the evidence of global warming is real and that an industry of denial has deceived the American public, putting them and their grandchildren at risk.

    Former Guardian and Observer Journalist Jonathan Cook Responds

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Most ambitious journalists start out on a daily local newspaper owned by one of a handful of large media groups. There one quickly feels all sorts of institutional constraints on one's reporting. As a young journalist, if you know no better, you simply come to accept that journalism is done in a certain kind of way, that certain stories are suitable and others unsuitable.
  53. Intellectual Cleansing: Part 3
    Resource Type: Article

  56. Jonathan Cook - Response to Intellectual Cleansing Part 1 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    However grateful we should be to the tiny minority of dissident writers, their relegation to the margins of the commentary pages of Britain's 'leftwing' media serves a useful purpose for corporate interests. It helps define the 'character' of the British media as provocative, pluralistic and free-thinking - when in truth they are anything but. It is a vital component in maintaining the fiction that a professional media is a diverse media.

  60. Killing Granny with the Laziness Bias
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    While it is often the case that the majority of Americans do see the light "about the need for healthcare reform, a new energy policy or affordable, high-quality day care." The dominant journalistic practices, especially in broadcast and cable news, dim the light in favor of noise. Far-right Republicans understand, almost instinctively, this preference for noise. And they appreciate "and know how to cultivate" the greatest bias in electronic journalism right now: the laziness bias. The laziness bias means you feature sensation over substance, provocative sound bites over investigative reporting, misinformation over fact.
  61. The Left-Wing Media Fallacy
    Jeremy Bowen, The BBC, And Other National Treasures

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The issue is not complex, not esoteric: in a world dominated by corporate power we rely on media corporations for news about that world. Future generations will surely be aghast that so few people today are able to perceive the perfectly obvious problem, the very clear source of mass control, that this implies.

  85. Oscar Hangover Special: Why "Spotlight" Is a Terrible Film
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    I am astonished (though I suppose I shouldn't be) that, across the past few months, ever since Spotlight hit theatres, otherwise serious left-of-centre people have peppered their party conversation with effusions that the film reflects a heroic journalism, the kind we all need more of. I was in Boston in the Spring of 2002 reporting on the priest scandal, and because I know some of what is untrue, I don't believe the personal injury lawyers or the Boston Globe's "Spotlight" team or the Catholic "faithful" who became harpies outside Boston churches, carrying signs with images of Satan.
  86. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - July 2, 2016
    Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn, and Contempt for Democracy

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Brexit, the British vote to leave the European Union, has thrown the political elites into turmoil and confusion. The referendum was supposed to be a safe political manoeuvre, a way to produce an appearance of democratic legitimacy for the profoundly undemocratic structures of the EU. The gambit turned out to be a spectacular miscalculation, as millions of people turned out to express their opposition to a state of affairs that is leaving the majority worse off while enriching a small minority. This issue of Other Voices looks at the Brexit referendum, elite loathing for democracy, and the related attempt to get rid of Labour's leftwing leader, Jeremy Corbyn.
