The press report as widespread what exists only in and through the
press. Was the 'fury' over Jeremy Corbyn not singing God Save the Queen
an event which occured significantly outside the press claques and various rent-a-quote politicians? Was the Fiscal Charter debate
'overshadowed' by the Labour 'u-turn' any place other than in the
reporting of it? Now the press tells us that Seumus Milne has taken a battering, except that he's only been 'battered' by the press.
