Andy McDonald hit out at Radio 4 host Justin Webb for "playing a part" in Labour's downfall. The MP for Middlesborough said the broadcaster should have "a look in the mirror" if they believe they were impartial in their election coverage. Justin Webb asked about voters dislike of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as he said it “didn’t come from the media” and it was on the doorsteps.
Speaking on Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr McDonald said: “Don’t get me started on the media, Justin. I’m very worried about our public service broadcaster.
“This is very serious because when you come to a position like this with criticism of the BBC you turn me down.”
