Investigation shows bots used in effort to smear Jeremy Corbyn — Asa Winstanley on Loud and Clear

I spoke to Brain Becker for his Loud & Clear show on Radio Sputnik about my investigation into a network of fake “Labour” anti-Semitic Twitter sockpuppet accounts that were fuelling the “crisis”.

I said: “With Joan Ryan’s known links to Israeli embassy agents, including Shai Masot, the Israeli embassy spy … questions have to be asked … what is she doing with that data? … Is she sending it back to Israel?”

My appearance in Al Jazeera’s film, The Lobby

 

I appeared in Al Jazeera’s four-part undercover documentary The Lobby, which aired in January. I was in parts one and two, which you can view above (the videos should skip straight to my contributions). All four parts can be viewed here.

The film led to the forced resignations of Israeli embassy officer Shai Masot and civil servant Maria Strizzolo.

Click here to read the article I wrote mentioned in the film, which had exposed Jewish Labour Movement director Ella Rose’s former role as an Israeli embassy officer. It was the article which led for her to express the wish for me to “die in a hole,” as seen in part two above.
