Censorship of Truth telling Newspapers demanded by Left wing campaign

The demand for newspapers not afraid to print the facts is growing. A Left Wing campaign in  Britain says that those papers are popular because fear and division sells.  Apart from attention grabbing headlines, the articles are factual. The  left-wing campaign  wants those facts censored. They are  boycotting  advertisers  in an attempt to force the papers to close down.

A new campaign is targeting advertisers in a bid to shut down newspapers that report crime committed by migrants, rather than covering it up.
The Stop Funding Hate campaign is urging companies to pull advertising from the Sun, the Daily Mail and the Express, claiming that they use “fear and division to sell more papers”. The campaign’s founder, Richard Wilson, called the newspapers’ reporting of migrants “toxic”.

We  really should add the word toxic to the Whaleoil dictionary. I suggest we give it this definition:

Toxic the quality or state of being true

” The toxic article revealed how many German women were raped and sexually molested during the concert”

” He was a toxic blogger not afraid to point out that the emperor had no clothes on.”

Synonyms: veracity, truthfulness, verity, sincerity, candour, honesty, genuineness
