Silence of Local News Media in England

Why were the local news media silent about the grooming gangs, when there was data demonstrating their existence from as early as the 1980s?

One thing that becomes clear from my analysis in Easy Meat, is that the for decades local journalists/editors must have heard about the Muslim grooming gangs in their area. So why were they not investigating these gangs? If they'd done this, then the national media could not have failed to notice reports in Bradford, Blackburn, Bristol, Birmingham, Leicester, Rotherham, etc.  I'm now asking local news media questions about the grooming gangs in their area. I'll update this page if/when I get responses.

The current staff at these newspapers may have only worked there for the last couple of years. But they should be asking: why was my newspaper silent? What inside knowledge did my predecessor have that we kept hidden?

Here's a question to The Sheffield Star, asking why the local media ignored what was going on for so long.

 Sheffield Star: Why Did Local News Media Ignore Grooming Gangs 1

Here's a question to a senior reporter at The Sheffield Star. I expect that even questions like this, which do not question the role of local news media in facilitating these gangs, will go unanswered.

Question To Rotherham Reporter About Number of Grooming Gangs in Rotherham

The public will have to judge for themselves: just how pivotal to the concealment of this decades-long national scandal was the universal silence of the local media? Just how complicit were they? Why have police and social workers come in for censure, when the local news media have not?

Why Muslims Kill For Islam

My new book (co-authored with Tommy Robinson) was published at the end of July 2017.  The book went straight to No.1 on Amazon, and stayed there for 4 days (that is, until the entire print-run of 5000 copies ran out).

`The Koran, Decoded

The book is now back in stock and you can buy the book here: http://www.mohammeds-koran.com/store

Or you can read the 100s of five-star reviews the book received in its first few months on sale.
