Delegitimising the British left – Owen Jones – Medium
There is a massive disconnect between where the media is and the political reality of the country. Rather than attempting to bridge that gap, the media is doubling down, and treating the left as barbarians at the gate who have to be kept out at all costs. So-called ‘centrist’ commentators who represent almost no substantial body of public opinion are back to treating the left with derision and contempt.

Our very British fake news industry | Richard Seymour on Patreon
Increasingly, with the rise of the platforms, this old school smear machine is losing ground. It is a product of Cold War era print monopolies and the relationships with states and para-state operators developed in that time. This isn't the basis for triumphalism. As the story of dark money, Cambridge Analytica, Breitbart, and the role of sock puppets and trolls involved in online propaganda demonstrates, a new rightist machinery is gradually emerging. It is less powerful for now, but also nastier and less restrained. And since it may be losing a wider cultural battle over the long term, it is apt to become rather desperate.

Still, we are where we are. These smears might have worked once. They might have finished off political careers. Now the only careers that look weaker as a result are on the front-bench. In other words, the moral panic about 'fake news' has come at a time of unique crisis -- of both profitability and authority -- for the fake news industry. That's what the discourse is concealing.
