UK: Corbyn pans Jewish journalist for coverage of anti-Semitism claims

 Corbyn repeatedly said he takes antisemitism seriously.  Here's the 'behind-the-scenes' look at how seriously he takes it.

UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn takes aim at top British Jewish journalist Jonathan Freedland in a new fly-on-the-wall documentary aired Wednesday, accusing the veteran Guardian columnist of “subliminal nastiness” in his coverage of the claims of widespread anti-Semitism in the party.
Corbyn said on film that Freedland is “kind of obsessed” with him, basing his claim on a column piece in which the journalist accuses Labour of having an anti-Semitism problem.
