There is often humour to be found, even in the most unlikely of places. The media are being blamed for an orchestrated witch-hunt: this isn't untypical of the online comments...

"Is this all the media have to do? Instead of journalism they practice a tirade of anti government spiel. The remoaner journalists having their day..." 

That one was directed at The Mail Online - longtime mouthpiece of the treacherous left.

Oh, and then there's this one (a broadside at The Telegraph this time)...

"I subscribed to the DT because I was sick of the MSM and other `newspapers` with their biased witchhunts of anything slightly to the right of outright Marxism.  Sadly they seem to be indulging in the very same `click bait` and poor journalism that drove me here in the first place..."

Good to see Client Journalism at its very, very best!

The Downing Street statement directly contradicts that of Durham Constabulary. Hmmm.

That's one of her tweets - she is a reporter.
You could have selected her tweet where she quoted the SNP calling for Cummings to go. She is impartial unlike the Guardian so gives both sides.
This 'fake news' or 'client journalism' label on journalism that you don't like and praise of that you do is just Trump like propaganda.
Personally I'd prefer to hear all sides of the story.

She is replying to another reporters story with anonymous quotes from sources close to No10 without any scrutiny whether they are factual or not. The journalist in question is Chair of the Parliamentary Press Gallery not some dodgy hack. The story from No10 has changed since. Your refusal to accept that client journalism exists is up to you but it’s certainly not Trumpian to ask a journalist to not simply become a spokesperson. It smacks of defending the government rather than impartiality.

No this is replying to another reporters story with anonymous quotes from sources close to No10 without any scrutiny whether they are factual or not. The story from No10 has changed since.

No. It is Trumpian 'fake news media' cries when  they report what you don't like and praise media you do. LK is going to report what no 10 sources say as its her job - she isn't saying she believes them but she has to report it as she had to also report the attacks on Cummings. If you are concerned about bias media you would attack the Guardian more often than the Beeb but you complain selectively and attack unbias media. It detracts from the debate and just appears like Trumpish propaganda. If it turns out there are inaccuracies in the Guardian report, will you condemn them as client journalist / fake news? I know you won't. 
I don't just expect the media to report my views and I prefer to hear all sides of the debate including government and opposition sources etc. Saying the Beeb or LK is a government spokesperson when they quote the government sources is typical Trumpishness. If the story from No 10 has changed since and you've seen that it is because that has been reported which is again what you want reporters to do. The inconsistency shows no 10 in a bad light not the 'fake news media'.

Fyi - from Kay Burley on Twitter also Sky News etc also reporting no 10 sources...

No 10: ‘At no stage was he (Cummings) or his family spoken to by the police about this matter, as is being reported.’ https://t.co/u44ddZYUNY

Reporters doing their jobs. What no 10 says may be wrong or what the Guardian says may be wrong but they are reporting both. Not their fault if no10 or the Guardian are wrong/lying.
