Green Party Media Spokesman ‘Does a Bennett’

The Green Party’s Media spokesman Martin Dobson did his best to make his leader look comparatively clued up on policy when asked about his proposed “20% cap” on media ownership on the Media Show yesterday:

Steve Hewlett: You say there should be a 20% limit on ownership. Can you help me out here? Ownership of what? Sales, readership, titles, what is it?

Martin Dobson: Well… it’s about organisations that own television stations, radio stations and newspapers for instance… So we would put a limit on the amount they can own…

SH: But the amount of what?

MD: Well… I’m not entirely sure… I mean it’s an aspiration… I guess it’s to do with listenership and readership?

Return to base Agent Dobson, the secret Green plot to make Natalie Bennett look less incompetent in interviews is going well…

Quote of the Day

Charles Moore on the aid charity’s sex scandal…

“Oxfam was the Harvey Weinstein of aid – arrogant, bullying, conspicuous in its faults, yet utterly immune until the balance of fear mysteriously changed overnight.”
