One of the key factors in Jeremy Corbyn's rise to leader of the Labour party has been his staunch opposition to all things "establishment".
Popular moves among a seemingly large section of the electorates have included denouncing the banks, refusing to sing the national anthem and arguing for a grassroots political movement, but one of the biggest targets of Corbyn's disdain has been the so-called "mainstream media".
His leadership has so far been studded with instances that highlighted his frosty relationship with the media - from cancelling interviews at the last moment to shunning national television appearances in favour of local constituency meetings and obstinately refusing to answer questions when repeatedly asked about the lack of women in leading roles in his shadow cabinet.
