In the USA, powerful supporters of the Republican party have often influenced the Democrats into selecting the weakest candidate for the presidency so they can then beat them.

That was, after all, what the Watergate burglary was all about.

Is the Labour Party membership being cynically steered into selecting Jeremy Corbyn by these right wing scare stories in the press?

You only read the good things about Jeremy Corbyn, things that everyone would want to support anyway.

These are in favour of Corbyn, not against him.

By ignoring Andy Burnham and the others, certain newspapers are building among Labour members a huge internet support for a man who will not win an election.

Clever, isn’t it?
