Matt Chorley to Become MailOnline Political Editor

Guido has learned that the Sindy‘s political correspondent Matt Chorley is jumping ship to become the first Political Editor of the MailOnline. Chorley has confirmed to Guido that he will start his new job on September 10, just in time for party conference season. The Sindy gets 120,000 odd readers and the MailOnline has some 5.3 million visitors a day. Quite a step up…

    5.3 million readers a day, with the vast majority looking at the pictures and around 18 reading the politics.

    Never heard of him. Still, I look forward to all those “Fury” headlines with his face on the byline below.

      Are you posting from your lathe in a factory then? What has touching metalworking machines or visiting a factory got to to with some journo who’s a lot more successful than you’ll ever be.

    The Mail…..online? Reminds me of the Dilbert cartoon where Dilbert gives the pointy haired boss an Etch-a-sketch and tells him to turn it upside down and shake to reboot it. How do journo’s under 75 at the Mail relate to their typical readership?

    Mail Online….ah yes, that would be the gutless jobby that moderates out online comment it does not agree with or might piss off the owner.

    Only gullible mugs of like mind read it regularly.

      Actually, it’s one of the few places now where most comments are published, and unregistered readers get the opportunity to rec. or negatively rec. them. When they aren’t published, it’s usually because the site is overloaded. Many articles are unmoderated and only overload and the mods going off for breaks is the reason for non publication.

          When the nutty Norwegian shot other Norwegians, the Telegraph was full of posts defending his actions. The Telegraph is the sociopathic Nazis paper of record.

            twisted crazy naz1 extremist he may have been, but his logic was sound enough, even if psychotic and murderous. Socialist facilitators of destruction of indigenous cultures, perhaps, some may say, had it coming.

    Never believe the press says:

    So another lefty get’s a very influential job at a “conservative” publication. Mind you, backs-up what I’ve long suspected, that the Mail’s editorial staff are closet left-wingers ranting away as charactured right-wingers, so that Radio 4 can ridicule them.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
