Op-ed: Monday a #FakeNews or is that non-news story has flooded mainstream and social media.
It centres around, surprise surprise, Jeremy Corbyn. Look for negative fake news and you are bound to find Mr Corbyn features.
Who really knows why?
It could be because those that "have" and some, fear a Corbyn government becoming reality or it could be that such stories get eyeballs on them and so generate revenue or it could be that many mainstream media owners have their feet firmly placed in Tory politics or it could be other reasons but it is certainly not their quest for the truth.
So thanks to Rachael Williams on Facebook who opted Monday to share a reminder of what Mr Corbyn stands for; his ten main pledges and those of his parliamentary supporters:
We will put conflict resolution and human rights at the heart of foreign policy, commit to working through the United Nations, end support for aggressive wars of intervention and back effective action to alleviate the refugee crisis. British foreign policy has long failed to be either truly independent or internationally co-operative, making the country less safe and reducing our diplomatic and moral authority. We will build human rights and social justice into trade policy, honour our international treaty obligations on nuclear disarmament and encourage others to do the same.
How many times has that been shared by the mainstream media?
My guess is never.
Corbyn published his tax return ahead of this week's budget. He is trying to push for Tory Chancellor Philip Hammond to do the same. Instead the mainstream media and some on social media, including the right-wing of the Labour Party namely the regressive group Progress, prefer Monday to accuse Corbyn of not paying his full tax liability.
They have ended up with egg on their fat chins as it turns out Corbyn's tax bill was paid in full.
There are even claims he did not take a pay rise and it is that which led to the confusion.
Some were so keen to chew over his tax return they did a half ass job or was it they chose to find fault.
One thing this blogger knows is the country needs a Labour government enacting those ten pledges and more and it needs it soon.
Will there be a public apology for the tax fake news story?
Probably not but either way many voters will already have been duped once again.
