Unbiased Reporting?

In the past it was considered that the Daily Telegraph had a reputation for good, honest journalism, however like much of our media today it would seem this is not the case.

Today the Daily Telegraph carries on its front page an article detailing the problems local authorities have in disposing of recyclable waste. It is reported that more than 200,000 tons of recyclable waste is being sent to landfill or to incinerator plants. This 'small' problem is due to the current state of the financial markets and the lower prices being obtained.

For the full story see the article on EU Referendum.

The point about this article is that this whole problem of waste disposal can be laid at the door of the European Union and their waste directives. However nowhere in the article is this fact made known.

Come on DT, we get sufficient half-truths, lies and obfuscation from our politicians - without you joining in!
