A Double Hammer-Blow to Europe and Ethical Journalism
It also found that the tone of coverage was more negative than that about Russian and Chinese strongmen Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. The study also looked at the quantity of coverage from and found the EU accounted for just 1.
As the referendum approached, coverage became more intense and more positive. It was indeed too late and on 23 June British voters opted to leave the EU by a slim majority after a referendum campaign that will be best remembered for the lies told by leading campaigners. However, police footage clearly showed the migrants saying they were from Iraq and Kuwait.
In both cases the newspapers published small corrections on inside pages. But by then the false stories had become ingrained in the collective consciousness of readers. It is easier for the UK media to get away with publishing untruths and half-truths about the EU because the British public knows less about it than do citizens of any other country bar Latvia. The article is typical of lazy, error- strewn British reporting about the EU. The problem is, these stories are sticky and rapidly become shorthand for Brussels bossiness.
And, as many studies have shown, rebutting dubious claims or downright lies only serves to draw attention to the untruth rather than debunk it. However, most Brits get their news from the TV, internet and social media, not newspapers. Added to this, the British press tends to over-exaggerate its importance and influence. In The Sun had over 3. Now it has less than 1. British people also expect their newspapers to be unreliable. Finally, the link between media ownership and political influence is often overblown.
Coverage of the Brexit campaign was often shrill and shallow. But the referendum was not all grim news for quality journalism. Much of the reporting in the Guardian , Times and Financial Times was balanced and even the pro-Brexit Telegraph published commentaries by Remain backers. Sky News Political Editor Faisal Islam won plaudits from the media by putting Prime Minister David Cameron and leading Leave campaigner Michael Gove on the spot in a minute primetime interview he spent a week researching and rehearsing. The referendum was also notable for the proliferation of fact-checking sites analysing claims made by politicians.
Despite its close links to the Remain campaign, the pro-EU InFacts website also did valuable work in puncturing the myths propagated by both sides. Fact-checking has become more difficult in a world in which politicians lie so brazenly. The duty of journalists in this post- truth environment is the same as it has always been — to separate lies from facts, to inform readers as honestly as possible and to aim at the closest approximation of the truth.
