Meet Aaron Bastani, a notorious Twitter troll who runs ‘Novara Media’, an eccentric pro-Corbyn website which claims to be “new media for a different politics“. Bastani attacked the journalists who were spat at during Tory conference, and has moved on to trolling a number of female journalists on Twitter, calling the Sindy’s Jane Merrick a “fatuous muppet”:
When he isn’t trolling female journalists, Bastani is raising money for a vacuous campaign to try and get Nick Robinson and Michael Crick sacked:
A campaign which Corbynite MP Clive Lewis is backing:
Does Lewis know he has given money to an internet crackpot? Or do Team Corbyn really think they should be pressuring news organisations to fire their staff?
@MediaGuido All the more odd given that Clive Lewis is a former TV reporter and presumably an NUJ member
