Journalism isn’t merely something wielded by powerful businessmen to protect their interests
MediaWatch is crowd-funding so we can keep on bringing you media analysis that cuts through spin and misinformation in the right-wing press.
With your help we can continue to scrutinise the media this election and beyond, and ultimately improve media practice and strengthen our democracy.
MediaWatch writer Adam Barnett said:
“During this election we’ve seen an extraordinary campaign in the conservative press to influence voters and control the political discussion.
“We live in a culture where the papers write more about politicians’ kitchens than the appalling growth of foodbanks.
“Journalism isn’t merely something wielded by powerful businessmen to protect their interests.”
