US Presidential Response To Assault On Journalist

EDM number 1742 in 2017-19, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 23/10/2018.

That this House acknowledges the reported comments of President Trump regarding an incident where a US Congressman pleaded guilty to assaulting a reporter; deplores the increase in biased, vindictive agenda-setting reporting and other similar types of behavior which is becoming more commonplace in the UK by a small number of print and broadcast journalists; condemns unequivocally, and without reservation, physical assaults on any reporter; and calls for the robust, democratic challenge of media sources where there is bias and partisan activity earned out in the name of fair and objective journalism.

This motion has been signed by a total of 6 MPs.
