    I just put the latest news story that I read about him, and it clearly showed someone that is worse, as he deliberately lies against someone because he doesn't share his political beliefs, lies from websites like this, may well effect peoples views on him.

    So basically every right-wing blogger would be my answer.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Okay, I thought you were saying that had triggered me to post the thread. I apologise for the inference.

    Still, Owen Jones' calls to action for people to kettle Theresa May, his calls for riots etc, are worse than someone giving misinformation and then correcting it. IMHO.

    I have not followed him as closely as I used to last few months, but from what I seen of him previously he was ok. I liked his interviews with various people he did for the guardian, and he always came across as pretty fair to the likes of JRM, Carswell and others who would have zero in common with him politically.



    There is much worse in the hard left than him at the moment surely?

    There should be a statue of Owen Jones on every street corner in the whole world and anyone who tries to remove said statues is a Stalinist, freedom hater and a 'you're the real racist'.

    So can see why you'd slag him off today and not the appalling Tory lick-spittle Paul Staines. i.e Guido.
    Yea someone writing an inaccurate article about him and correcting it, terrible. Totally makes Owen Jones not a complete tosser.

    He is terrible. His car crash interview concerning the Florida nightclub shootings should have ended his broadcast career.

    He is part of what Maajid Nawaz calls the 'regressive left'.

    Yeah it was a total flounce.

    IIRC he wasn't wrong to be annoyed, but to storm off the set in a tantrum was not a great way to enhance his credibility as a supposedly credible journalist/media personality/whatever he is meant to be.

    He's a bit like Russel Brand or Grecian. One of these people who pushes people away from the cause they so passionately endorse by representing it so poorly.

    Hi instantly blamed it on homophobia rather than admit it was part of Islamic fundamentalism as the nightclub was predominantly frequented by the LGBT community. As it turns out, the terrorist chose that location as he was homosexual and went there regularly and therefore knew the security and layout. Had nothing to do with a a planned attack on homosexuals.

    I liked it tbh. And I think he's a massive bell-end.
