John McDonnell: the Media are trying to destroy us

I for one, was very impressed by John McDonnell yesterday afternoon at Beyond Austerity at Methodist Central Hall Westminster. It is unfortunate the entire meeting was not dedicated to a discussion between former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis and John McDonnell, as it would have been a far more informative and productive meeting.

We had excellent analysis, and intelligent proposals.

A breath of fresh air compared with Ed Balls or Alistair Darling.

Maybe that is why both he and Yanis Varoufakis are  being attacked in the mainstream media, to drown out what they are  saying.

Mass media has become rabid propaganda channels for the 1%, spewing a daily drip, drip, drip feed of misinformation, lies, smears and hate.

We must form our own communication channels. The media must be broken up. We cannot have people like Murdoch, Lord Rothermere, Barclay Brothers owning large chunks of the media.

Media channels that give an alternative view and help nail many of the lies.
