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

    Nice and warm and dry where you are?

    I am going for a swim in a moment. The water is 28°.

    Of course, some may not like that…

    Agree. That is precisely what I did!

    I was concerned that the brains of those left behind would get addled. As Sir Christopher Wren almost said If you want proof, look around you.

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

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
