Dan Wootton: The activist mainstream media is now on a perpetual and personal witch hunt, which is bad for democracy

'It’s not up to the media to campaign to remove democratically elected politicians'

Have you noticed something has changed since a media witch hunt forced out our largely popular, democratically elected, Brexit-delivering Prime Minister who won office in a landslide just two years?

The MSM – especially the British Bashing Corporation, Sly News and our other laughably so-called impartial broadcasters – have become drunk on their own power.

They relish in, not reporting the issues that are REALLY facing Brits, like the cost of lockdown crisis, the war on women, and how the deranged march to Net Zero is destroying our ability to live freely.

But rather playing pathetic and petty Westminster parlour games, designed to claim yet another scalp.

With Sunak back in power, the establishment no longer wants to defenestrate the Prime Minister, but create a culture of chaos to help lead to the election of Labour under Slippery Starmer.

The creation of an activist MSM has not gone unnoticed by viewers of GB News, desperate for an alternative to that narrative.

It started with wallpaper anti-Brexit coverage, before leading to the disgraceful one-sided pro-lockdown Covid diatribe, as millions of us gave up on the Beeb and the others as an impartial news source.

But today I want to focus in specifically on their witch hunts against our leaders, even when their so-called crimes pale into insignificance compared to the real issues of the day.

First, they relentlessly came for their biggest threat Boris Johnson. Once they knew it was possible to unseat such a large figure, Liz Truss never stood a chance, even though she was backed overwhelmingly by the Conservative party.

Once they knew it was possible to unseat such a large figure, Liz Truss never stood a chance, even though she was backed overwhelmingly by the Conservative party. Next was Dominic Raab, then Gavin Williamson.

And now it’s the Tory party Chairman Nadhim Zahawi they want out.

Even though there’s an acknowledgement he likely hasn’t broken the law, that doesn’t matter, the media wants another victim to hunt down…

While our single-minded/anti-Tory journalists now seem to think that HMRC get everything right, that’s not the point.

The point is it’s not up to the media to campaign to remove democratically elected politicians, stopping them being able to do their job.

Uncover crimes and wrongdoing, absolutely.

But the activist MSM is now on a perpetual and personal witch hunt, which is bad for democracy.
