Boris Johnson is facing a tense final day on the campaign trail after a poll suggested he is no longer assured of winning a Commons majority. According to a polling method that correctly predicted the 2017 hung parliament, he will secure a 28-seat majority - but it is within the margin of error. Mr Johnson uses an interview with Political Editor Gordon Rayner to warn that tomorrow is "an absolutely critical moment in our national history", with voters facing the starkest choice since the Eighties. He said the election was "in the lap of the gods", admitting he was "genuinely worried" that tactical voting could put Jeremy Corbyn into No 10.

Monday’s split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Department’s inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBI’s handling of its 2016 investigation into Trump’s campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States. The facts of both dramas were clear to objective viewers: In the one instance, there’s conclusive and surprisingly consistent evidence that President Trump pushed Ukraine to concoct dirt on a domestic political rival to affect the 2020 presidential election, and in the other, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the FBI was proper to investigate Trump’s dealings with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign. But that set of facts is not what anyone who was watching Fox News heard. Instead, … [Read more...] about Fox News Is Now a Threat to National Security

Well for one thing the media does not seemingly capture the fact that most Islamic organisations promote religious tolerance and peace. Consider that the primary goal of seeking out the news would be presumed to be to gain an understanding of what is going on in the world. The news certainly makes the world appear a scary place (and of course it is), but it might not be as bad as the media makes out. Bad news travels fast, and ultimately sells papers (or ad clicks). I recently asked some (older) people close to me why they read the newspaper that they read. Amongst other reasons, such as competitions, they told me that the newspaper has, ‘the best stories’.
