The Medialens Daves - Edwards, Cromwell... Wearing, Spart - are
pestering Monbiot again. Look, Daves, Monbiot has more important
things to do than respond to your nit picking.
Look, Dave Edwards and Dave Cromwell, Monbiot didn't reply to
your first email. Take the hint.
And, Dave Wearing, do you really think you are helping the antiwar
cause by taking up Monbiot's time in email correspondence and
then asking him to "retract" what he's said to you.
What pretentious, self-important, time-wasting bollocks you write
sometimes. You give the antiwar movement a bad name. Try doing
something useful (eg take the matter up with someone influential
who supports an attack on Iran) and get off Monbiot's back.
Monbiot on Medialens: "Rather than offering a
clear, objective analysis of why the media works the way it does,
who pulls the strings, how journalists are manipulated, knowingly
or otherwise, you appear to have decided instead to use your platform
merely to attack those who do not accept your narrow and particular
doctrine [...] As a result, you are in danger of reproducing the
very problems you criticise. You appear to me to be confronting
one form of bias and intolerance with another."
