The media in Britain is broken. It's time to stand together for truthful, hard-hitting journalism.
They had everything on their side. The Tory
campaign was based on a known liar feeding
spin and disinformation to a biased press. It looked like the strategy worked.
A broken political system saw peerages reportedly offered in exchange for a grubby back-room deal with the Brexit Party (as we covered in an LFF exclusive).
Meanwhile we saw journalists repeatedly echo false Tory spin – from protesters ‘punching’ ministers (untrue), to lies spread about the child having to sleep on coats in A&E.
Will you join the movement for honest, hard-hitting journalism today?
We cannot change the right-wing press: they will always stand against progressive values.
Instead, we have to build radical, truthful media.
We will not let our elections be dominated by right-wing lies.
To build a better media, we have to do this together. Every penny you put into Left Foot Forward goes into our hard-hitting journalism.
We know this country is better than this. The political system is broken. But we don’t have to just idly accept it.
Let’s change the debate, and shine a light in these dark times.
Don’t lose hope: create it.
