Media Fund Article in Press Gazette
“To have a prominent BBC journalist and presenter like Nick Robinson attack the independent media, I don’t think it’s acceptable and I think he owes us an apology.”
Barlow said: “The political commentators who consistently have got everything wrong for four years still have their jobs and in fact are being paid more than ever.
“But no-one has asked why they are getting things wrong, no-one is saying maybe it’s because they come from a particular background.”
He added: “Someone has to pay for the media, for what you see, read and listen to. If it isn’t you, it’s someone else – and they don’t always have your interests at heart.”
