Leveson: Told Huffington Post Not Up To “Complex Journalism”

Media guru Claire Enders slagged off the Dead Tree Press for their digital efforts in her evidence to Leveson yesterday, telling Brian that the Guardian and the Mail had failed to find a solution to the new wave of digital media. Her harshest criticism, however, was reserved for Guido’s online friends at the Huffington Post:

The Huffington Post is an interesting phenomenon but in terms of being able to really employ journalists to do very complex work – I mean, the Trafigura investigation, the Wikileaks, the MPs’ expenses scandal, the phone hacking story – these are not enterprises  that have been taken forward by any enterprise but print enterprises.

When Enders had finished her diatribe Leveson quipped: “all sounds rather depressing actually“. Does HuffPo do complex journalism? HuffPo hasn’t hired people with a reputation for getting stories

    We need to keep a trail of disciplinary hearings, not simply delete them.

    Consider this your final warning

    The Guardian might not have found it’s feet digitally, but the Mail definitely has. Biggest media online presence in the world – just about.

UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn:

“I think Mail online comments are a telling indication of public opinion.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
