BBC

Quality journalism, namely John Humphrey’s very straightforward questions to the Director General and the Director General’s very straightforward answers, did for the thing. There was no going back after that. Poor quality journalism, namely Newsnight being too quick to pull a trigger was not acceptable in a public broadcast bastion dedicated to attention to detail.

Compare all this to the difficulties the BBC has in reporting objectively on China and its Communist Party Congress. It remains entirely unsurprising that the Chinese will control their elections and their media access with great attention to detail. They understand that even the illustrious BBC will pillory them for secrecy and send correspondents there to praise and inflate dissidents and those who would see China’s non imperialist power descend into catastrophe.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
