Steve Bannon was “dumped like a dog” by President Trump. Steve Bannon was ditched like a bad potato by his corporate backers. Steve Bannon was excommunicated like a heathen slug by the US alt-right.

You know who isn’t above Steve Bannon, though?

The British fucking media.

Big round of applause, guys.

You’ve done it.

You’ve found a way of sinking even further into the shit.

Fuck me

Disgraced, far-right shithead Steve Bannon was interviewed by disgraced, former newspaper editor Piers Morgan. And you know why?

BECAUSE JOURNALISM.

Most people probably wouldn’t have interviewed Bannon. Not because he was behind the Muslim ban, or because of his involvement with Cambridge Analytica, or because he’s a disgusting bigot in oh-so-many ways. Most people would have avoided him because he looks like the health warning on a cigarette packet.

Not our media, though.

They know the atrocious things he’s done, and they knew his career was over. Rather than allowing it to stay dead, however, they jammed some neck bolts on, hooked up the lightning machine, and Frankensteined the bastard.

BUT WHY?

What do they think the point of the media is? Because it’s not supposed to be a platform for random, horrible pricks to spew their horseshit unbound. That’s what bus stations are for.

Impartiality

No one’s saying you shouldn’t give space to different points of view. But thinking some people are worth less than others isn’t just a point of view; thinking Western society needs to be replaced by the Galactic Empire isn’t just a point of view; and thinking disgraced, would-be fascists deserve a second chance isn’t just a point of view.

These ideas you’re laundering for the far right have a real impact on the world. The fact you still don’t understand that is why things are only getting worse.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
