All this past week the British MSM mostly — but not entirely — declined to cover the Home Office ban on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer entering the UK.
After Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll were arrested earlier today, I wanted to see how much coverage the media were giving the incident. Google News didn’t have anything in its main headlines, so I went to “World” — still nothing.
Then I searched on “London”. The top news item, with 142 articles, was the Gay Pride Parade in London. The walk to Woolwich came next, with 62 articles. Most of those, however, were about the police ban on the walk, and were published yesterday or the day before.
There were twelve reports on the arrest of the EDL leaders:
- Fox News
- The Guardian
- Channel 4
- Sky News
- News Shopper
- Digital Journal
- The Times
- The Express
It was clear from the videos that there were a lot of gentlemen from the Fourth Estate present at the moment of the arrest. It will be interesting to see how much more coverage escapes into the MSM.
