Jeremy Corbyn Speech To Labour Party Women’s Conference 2016 In Liverpool
Labour Party Conference in Liverpool, September 25, 2016
Morning Star fringe slams media bias against Corbyn
Mr Hopkins spoke at the event addressing media bias against Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership alongside freelance journalist Abi Wilkinson, Labour NEC member Rhea Wolfson, Unite chief of staff Andrew Murray and Momentum national organiser James Schneider.
Panel chairwoman Carolyn Jones said it was clear that the Establishment wanted to derail the socialist project because 80 per cent of the media is owned by five billionaires — despite the overwhelming demand for policies championed by Mr Corbyn. Ms Jones said that those who want to democratise the press were opposed by media barons the most.
Ms Wilkinson pointed out that, while she was not denying media bias against Mr Corbyn existed, some journalists found it hard to get hold of him or his press team.
She added: “Political journalists also like to be in the know so when they’re confronted with something unfamiliar, it makes them seem they are propping up the status quo.
“But Corbyn is improving — he is starting to build his contacts in the media. To achieve a Labour government, you have to see the media as a tool.”
Local press is often ignored but can be utilised by the socialist movement in Britain by sending them press releases on tailored stories relating to community issues, said Ms Wolfson.
She added that Corbyn supporters must do creative things without mainstream newspapers and news channels in the same way that union organisers on the shop floor do to mobilise the workforce.
Mr Schneider said that media opposition to Mr Corbyn had not stifled support for his policies, including renationalising railways and utilities, bringing back education maintenance allowance and building council housing.
“Alternative media is growing but still what the BBC says matters and we cannot exit that field,” he said. But he did criticise lobby journalists who “chase political gossip” rather than debate ideas. Mr Murray from Unite said that supporters of Mr Corbyn should “keep on the BBC” to push it to rebalance its coverage of Labour.

Corbyn vows to change Britain
Wednesday 28th September 2016
JEREMY CORBYN will put Labour “on notice” for a general election today, vowing to end exploitation and make immigration work for Britain.
In his address to Labour’s conference today, Mr Corbyn will pledge to reinstate the migrant impact fund to ensure deprived parts of the country do not suffer in the post-Brexit era.
He will say he is “determined” to “win power and change Britain for the better” and rebuild the trust of the population.
“But every one of us knows that we will only get there if we accept the decision of the members, end the trench warfare and work together to take on the Tories,” he will say.
“Anything else is a luxury that the millions of people who depend on Labour cannot afford.
“So I put our party on notice today. Labour is preparing for a general election in 2017, we expect all our members to support that effort, and we will be ready whenever it comes.”
His speech will be based on 10 policy pledges approved at the conference yesterday, guaranteeing strong public services, public ownership, cutting income inequality, better workers’ rights and “peace and justice at the heart of foreign policy.”
The migrant impact fund offered support to local government in areas with unexpected pressure on housing, schools and hospitals. It was introduced by Gordon Brown and scrapped shortly after the 2010 general election. Mr Corbyn said reinstating the fund would give “extra support to areas of high migration.”
The media’s coverage of Corbyn has been more akin to a dictatorship than a pluralist democracy, writes CHRIS WILLIAMSON.
