Our response to allegations against The Canary, 3 July 2016

Nancy W Mendoza

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:

Start your day with The Canary News Digest

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.
