Protesters threw green paint at the Telegraph’s offices in Victoria, and unveiled banners reading: “Tell the truth”.
It said it had taken the action because it believed the outlets did not cover the climate crisis sufficiently.
Tom Masters, an activist with the group from Bristol, said: “Extinction Rebellion demands that people tell the truth about the climate emergency.
“This shouldn’t be too much to ask of a national newspaper that exerts significant influence over its readership and over the British government.”
Press & #IPCCReport @Telegraph called it "nothing but confected hysteria” & @DailyMailUK accused the authors of using “hysterical language” @TheSun gave it less than half a column on page 2 #denial
