Saying of the day 15th June 2021

"Two very different mobs attacked free journalism this week. Both contemptible, each in their way a threat to our free press and democracy.

The first was the physical mob who harassed BBC journalist Nicholas Watt

The second, those who tried to stop firms advertising with GBNEWS

The physical mob and the virtual one represent two aspects of the same disease - a wish to suppress sources of unwelcome news or differing opinions.

It is unacceptable wherever it comes from."

(Saying of the day rather than quote of the day as it comes from me.)
