Council of Europe issues media freedom alert over UK government blacklisting of investigative journalists

The UK government has been formally warned for threatening press freedom after it blacklisted a group of investigative journalists and denied them access to information.

The Council of Europe issued the Level 2 "media freedom alert" after Ministry of Defence press officers refused to deal with Declassified UK, a website focusing on foreign and defence policy stories.

The intervention by the Council ironically comes as Boris Johnson and his ministers condemned environmental activists as a threat to press freedom for blockading printing plants in protest at newspapers' climate coverage.

Maybe the Tories apart from defence don't want investigative journalists poking about Covid 19 contracts not put out to tender that end up in friends ,supporters family hands ..... ????
