Whatever you think of UKIP and indeed, to a degree, whatever you think of Brexit, no one can honestly deny the role that UKIP have played in bringing the country this far. So, you would think on what is the most decisive day for Brexit that the mainstream media would at least give the Party a look-in? WRONG!
A Tweet sent from the official UKIP account reveals that all the major networks have conspired to silence the Party:
BBC : We’ll get back to you.
Sky: We’ll get back to you.
ITV: We’ll get back to you.
The most important day in the Brexit process so far, and UKIP is under a media blackout.

Yet again we can see how totally uncommitted to being objective the mainstream media actually is. It (allegedly) has a duty to provide a spread of views but lets be honest it doesn’t even pretend to try to do that anymore……
