BuzzFeed says Corbyn is shunning nationals for local press Jeremy Corbyn is is offering exclusive access to regional journalists while shunning hostile national newspapers in a bid to get more positive election coverage for Labour, it has been claimed.
Recent campaign visits by the Labour leader have seen national lobby journalists sidelined in favour of local media and the broadcasting media, who are legally obliged to provide balanced coverage. Its political correspondent Jim Waterson said Labour hopes to secure coverage by meeting members of the public through walkabouts on the street and doing clips for regulated TV news bulletins and local newspapers. Jim highlighted Mr Corbyn campaign visit to Bedford on Wednesday, to which only local media outlets and burberry dress sale a Press Association journalist were invited. He cited the example of a story which appeared on the Bedfordshire on Sunday website afterwards regarding the Labour leader pledge to save a hospital in the town. By contrast, Prime Minister Theresa May was criticised earlier this week for restricting access to local journalists during a visit to their patch. Cornwall Live journalists claimed they had been banned from filming Mrs May visit to an industrial estate in Helston and that they were locked in a room to prevent them doing so. Wrote Jim: May is under attack for running a seemingly stage managed general election campaign, where she is being kept well away from members burberry shop online usa of the public in favour of surrounding herself at campaign events with favourable print news outlets. Corbyn seems to be taking a different approach: meeting members of the public through walkabouts on the street and doing clips for heavily regulated TV news bulletins and local newspapers, while purposely avoiding taking the largely hostile national print media with him. added: Bedford trip could be considered a success for Corbyn: The people of town were pictured meeting the Labour leader without a scrum of print journalists, broadcasters showed coverage of him walking down the high street and guaranteed him airtime, and local newspapers wrote burberry montreal outlet up the visit with a focus on local issues. told HTFP: team are adopting an interesting strategy, which is as much about mitigating damage which could be done by the national press as it is about actively choosing to exclusively use local papers. just look at the coverage they got a result the Bedfordshire local news story burberry sales online was about Corbyn backing a local hospital rather than responding to the national agenda. That the sort of stories his team want, rather than another row about national issues. has asked the Labour Party for a comment.
It will be interesting to see just how the local media handle this opportunity and whether they ask him the kind of tough,searching and relevant questions he clearly thinks he will be avoiding by keeping away from the political heavyweight national journalists and papers. It is a chance for local journalists and papers to shine if they grab the opportunity, press him on policies affecting their areas and aren struck in the presence of a national figure. What we don want is fluffy has cuppa with local pensioner in high street pieces It quite apparent that he is after an easier ride than the nationals would give him and expects only softer more parochial easy to answer questions from a local scribe.
