What do you think of the headlines of Jeremy Corbyn? Are they fair or unjustified? Do they affect voting behaviour ultimately?

I think Corbyn has polarised everyone. There seems like there's no voice of moderation in the headlines about Corbyn, but then again I suppose a moderate headline wouldn't sell papers.

I think he's just out of his depth, for which it's hard to blame him. He's finding that sticking to your principles isn't so easy once you're in a position where you have the chance to apply them to reality.

He's easy to attack, and that type of writing makes for interesting reading.

It's time for him to go.

He had potential to become a prime minister and he even managed me to come to Labour.

But nobody in Labour likes him, the media are actually telling the truth about him. Chuka Unumma needs to replace him or a No-Nonsense Hard man MP would make Labour win 2020.

Yes, but it's mainly his own fault for being such an idealistic, naive pussy with no balls.

I agree, but nevertheless he has only just been elected leader with an overwhelming majority. If Labour MPs can't stand his leadership then the only reasonable action they can take is to refuse to take the whip. They cannot justify trying to overthrow the man behind it.

I think there are a few examples of journalists going over the top (for instance the head-bowing-angle fiasco, I mean really?) but in general I'm sorry, if you keep behaving in a ridiculous way you can't blame the media for reporting it.

Bear in mind that a good number of people agree very much with the papers' representations of Corbyn, and share their abhorrence for his politics.

Corbyn is one of few to actually appreciate the principle of not 'fighting fire with fire'. We got into this mess because we thought going to war was a good idea, and now we're trying to fix the problem by...going to war again?

God, we sure do love war don't we? George Carlin said it best; That's our new job in the world! Bombing brown people!

It'd be nice to see the same analysis done for other political leaders though just as a comparison.

Brilliant argument, you must be some kind of raging genius. How can space and time even contain your mental agility?

Some have been a bit over dramatic but he does himself no favours, saying he would not shoot terrorists during a terror attack, his comments on the IRA & muslim terror groups, wanting to give the Falklands to Argentina & then standing in Parliament saying he wants to get rid of the UK armed forces give the papers good reason to criticise him and so they should

Is Corbyn being vilified by the media? Unbelievably so. He is facing a media onslaught from across the board, focusing on the ridiculously petty, and making mountains out of molehills. We've seen him being attacking for not only being weak for weak for not enforcing his views on his parties, but also being dictatorial for enforcing his views on his party (and not even from different publications). Right now, we are seeing a massive deal being made out of the fact that his MPs might rebel (which is never made such an issue with other leaders). And I dont even want to get into when apparently respectable institutions make big deals over the goings on in the privy council.

The medias opinion of Corbyn seems completely out of touch with the publics, he one with a massive majority of labour voters, and is still heralded by many as a great and genuine leader.

Corbyn represents a desire for British politics to grow up and change. To move beyond politics being treated like a sport where policies are irrelevant, and promises mean nothing.

I would say he is the complete opposite. Instead of being an obsolutely wet fish like Cameron, Clegg, Miliband, Blair, and so on: he stands by his believes and his mandate to lead on those beliefs. He doesn't spend his time trying to be the stereotypical politician for the media circus, and he's trying his best to navigate a cesspool an showmanship of cowardice to the best of his ability.

Jeremy Corbyn being vilified by the right wing press? Next you'll be surprised that Christmas Day is on December 25th and Jeremy Clarkson likes cars.
