We never get to see the context behind the one liners, we never get to see the q&a sessions or any real interaction between candidates & public.
All I know is why a bunch of often rather dull and inarticulate panellists think Corrbyn is Satan incarnate. What seems to have passed the rather out of touch teams who put this rather stilted coverage together is that in this age of social media, the whole picture is available and anyone who is interested is able to see the whole story.
Whereas 20 years ago, we had a very controlled input of news, and the Murdoch press could act as kingmakers.
Things have moved on and now it is essay to see the whole picture. Facebook and Twitter allow us to share the whole picture. Of course there is the misinformation, the Trolls and the bogus stories, but these are easy to spot and as people get more savvy with social media these become more absurd and less relevant.
It is pretty clear that unless the traditional news channels recognise the way we process information has changed they will become ever less relevant. In the modern world, to be a trusted news source, you have to be honest. Sadly it appears that we are not getting the service we deserve.
