The media were wrong

A thread collating some notable left-wing media/commentator’s views on Jeremy Corbyn and Labour’s electoral hopes under him.

**Note**: This isn’t about gloating, it’s about questioning why even left-leaning media is dominated by those unable to imagine a serious progressive politics, and whose conventional wisdom is increasingly irrelevant, insular, unserious, and unrepresentative. Corbyn supporters have been treated as delusional, insane cultists who want to destroy the Labour party, and as spoilt, naive children who know nothing of the real world. It is not about asking for apologies, or alienating those who wish to now get behind the movement: it is about asking what lessons can be learnt from this, and how to get better representation in media.

Any contributions welcome.
