The Labour party is developing policies to break up the UK’s largest media companies, according to leader Jeremy Corbyn.
In an interview in Monday’s Morning Star, Corbyn said the party also wanted to promote co-operative ownership models for the media.
“We are developing a media policy which would be about breaking up single ownership of too many sources of information, so that we have a multiplicity of sources,” he said.
“And actually promoting co-operative ownership and access, including local TV and radio stations and newspapers like the Morning Star.”
That is what he means, isn’t it? Breaking up the hulking leviathan at the centre of our media world?
