Today a satirical tweet from one of our writers was taken out of context.

In January 2015 Rupert Murdoch tweeted an islamaphobic statement, which was later satirised by our writer Steve Topple. Rupert Murdoch’s tweet is as follows:

Steve Topple satirised this as follows:

Steve’s intention was to underscore the inherent racism in Rupert Murdoch’s original statement. It is unfortunate that this has now been taken out of context in an attempt to undermine Steve’s ongoing investigation into the Labour coup.

Canary Media stands against racism in all its forms. Therefore it goes without saying that we do not tolerate anti-semitism.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
