"One thing I've learned over the past six months or so is how shallow, facile and ill-informed many of the supposedly well-informed major commentators are in our media.

But many Jews do worry that his past instinct, when faced with potential allies whom he deemed sound on Palestine, was to overlook whatever nastiness they might have uttered about Jews, even when that extended to Holocaust denial or the blood libel – the medieval calumny that Jews baked bread using the blood of gentile children.It's a carefully worded paragraph.

The is how "The Media" works.Yet Corbyn has a cure for this.On Thursday, Corbyn supporters hissed and booed a BBC reporter, Laura Kuenssberg, when she stood to ask Corbyn a question at speech he gave about the EU referendum.

One is the world of the media, with TV and print, and the other is the world of social media, and on social media we have an enormous presence and an enormous following.For example, an abbreviated version of my contribution in parliament after last week s Queen s speech got 2 million views on Facebook.

We are getting enormous cut-through on social media and I think sometimes the national debate is framed around the political media circle that often ignores the reality of how many people get their information.Corbyn is on Snapchat; David Cameron is not.Corbyn has made this point repeatedly since he became Labour leader, and it's interesting that he's the only major political figure in the UK who talks about the power of social media on a regular basis.

We are doing things very differently.Now consider the Vice documentary again.
