Petition Investigate press coverage of Covid-19 outbreak as part of any public inquiry
We feel that some of the media has not conducted itself in a way that was helpful into reducing deaths and cases of covid in the UK and we feel their role and behaviour during this time must be included in the analysis of all decisions made and of the effect it had on outcomes.
The country needed to have a combined effort of the government, opposition, NHS, armed forces, volunteers and main stream media.
We feel much of the media was detrimental to the number of lives at risk of dying by misinformation, half stories, harassment and causing confusion. An investigation into their behaviour should be included in any public inquiry to change behaviour for the future safety of the nation.
