There's quite a bit of racism in British media... with the majority of the major publications being stooges of the labour party, antisemitism has always been part of their deal, and now with the Khan group and all of their subordinates in power literally everything is racist. The ultimate trump card to play ad infinitum.

As usual you have no idea what you're talking about, UK is a Tory country and it's media reflects that.

^ Ha. Last year, the UK news media subjected us to wall-to-wall coverage, for at least an entire straight week, of an irrelevant non-story about a government adviser driving his car to County Durham in violation of lockdown rules. It was barely a story at all, yet it ended up becoming a big media circus because activist journalists desperately wanted to get said adviser sacked. That is not the behaviour of a government controlled press.

To be sure, there are plenty of pro-Tory press outlets like the Telegraph and (generally) the Mail, but you'd need a narrow, blinkered vision to think the media landscape is endemically pro-Tory. Certainly the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky News are not, and neither are the Guardian, the Independent, the Daily Mirror, the Daily Record, the Herald, the Scotsman nor the Evening Standard (not that newspapers have as much influence as they did 30 years ago – though of these, the Guardian and the Mail are the most influential due to their strong online presence).

You are right that it is a 'Tory country', politically if not culturally. The 2019 election could hardly have been more decisive. Perhaps they will even win the upcoming Hartlepool by-election (fingers crossed).
