I can only speak for myself as a long time, Liberal supporter but so far I think that Nick Clegg has done a good job serving the interests of both the country and the Liberal Democrat party, admittedly I don't currently get involved in Lib Dem party politics other than holding a membership card and volunteering during elections.
Therefore when I read and listen to the media whipping up, dissent stories, like Charles Kennedy's non-existent defection to Labour, and then wringing out additional negativity its difficult to not to form the opinion that Britain's journalists would not accept reality if it bit them on the bum, take this typical tosh from the Telegraph and Stephen Pollard referring to the Charles Kennedy "Story" "…. it doesn't matter if it's true or not. Because underneath the details of which whip Mr Kennedy chooses to take in the House of Commons lie some fundamental truths about the Lib Dems." Mr Pollard dismisses the truth, and I'm sure there are plenty of journalist like him, who just ignore facts and write what they were going too, anyway, side stepping, he suggests that Lib Dems natural home is alongside Labour, again I speak for myself and would like to point out I've no wish to be associated with the sanctimonious sleaze bags, crooks and chancers that make up the Labours upper echelons.
The press seem united against the coalitions efforts to rectify damaged done by Labours insane mismanagement of the economy, and it seems that journalists have for there own reasons zeroed in against Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems in a clearly biased way, journalists naturally have bills to pay like all the rest of us so its no surprise they write what please their masters, and since most of the press is owned by those who favour conservatives its no wonder they're not gunning for Cameron, equally the state sector journalists those employed by the BBC have a strong empathy for those also in the state sector, whose years of preferential treatment might just be about to end, so its a no brainer that they have a vested interest in attacking the Lib Dems.
It seems to me that few of Britains journalist will ever let truth and the public interest get in the way of their own agenda.
