- "Something else which revealed the truth of the way the political world now operates, and which again did not get nearly the media attention it deserves, was Matt Kennard’s stunning revelation of the way The Guardian has been taken over by the security services.

In 2006, while a student journalist, Matt Kennard accused then Leeds University lecturer Frank Ellis of racism and was interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme. During this period, Kennard wrote for the Leeds Student magazine.
