All the News That Fits, We Print

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:

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.

    • I did, Nick, before I saw your comment here, and was pleasantly surprised by the number of comments (2,054 as of 1130hrs this day, Sunday) and by the general tone which, although invariably prefixed by “I do not agree with/am not a member of/do not like the EDL etc., etc.” were non the less, by a large majority percentile, an expression of how appalled the public at large are by this State sponsored curtailment of an essential British freedom – the right to peacefully walk the public thoroughfares of this land without let or hindrance.

      It is said that “The mills of the Gods grind slowly, but they grind exceeding fine.” and I suspect that this is what may be happening here.

  1. David Cameron exiled in Pakistan, while Tommy Robinson (EDL) video trends in the U.K. – interesting times.
