Twitter Reacts – Laura Kuenssberg

Earlier today BBCs political editor Laura Kuenssberg was hissed and booed at by Labour supporters as she questioned Jeremy Corbyn on the EU referendum.

It comes after earlier this week Vice news uploaded a documentary to their YouTube channel titled Jeremy Corbyn: The Outsider. During the 30 minute long documentary Jeremy Corbyn accused the BBC of bias and described the organisation as “obsessed with trying to discredit him.

He added: “There is not one story on any election anywhere in the UK that the BBC will not spin into a problem for me. It is obsessive beyond belief. They are obsessed with trying to damage the leadership of the Labour party.”

We looked at Twitter for its views on the subject and asked Twitter users their thoughts regarding Laura Kuenssberg, the BBC and Jeremy Corbyn.

American journalist Glenn Greenwald, the man who broke the Edward Snowden news story for The Guardian also took to Twitter to discuss the events.

Notably, it was mostly other reporters and journalists who jumped to the defence of Kuenssberg whilst labeling the booing Labour supporters ‘disrespectful’.
