I went to a media briefing last night run by Expose the BNP about how journalists should report the BNP in the General Election.
One of the speakers was Dominic Carman, a journalist who has interviewed BNP leader Nick Griffin and is standing against him in Barking for the Liberal Democrats. Carman said that Griffin privately hates the media but believes the Sun, Mail and Daily Express are the BNPs "best recruiting sergeants."
I am a bit sceptical about this. I think the Sun has come out strongly against the BNP and Griffin in its leader and comment columns but its hard to argue with what Carman said when you see the front pages of the Mail and Express today.
