Telegraph Exodus Continues

The Telegraph digital revolution is going well then. Their social media expert and resident internetz person James Manning has jumped ship to the Sun. Manning was previously best known for his sterling work as Boris Backer, ruining Team Ken’s day again and again during the 2012 mayoral election. So much for that ‘Digital First’ strategy…

      You don’t need to subscribe to it – just use a “Private Window” in Firefox (I think they’re called “Incognito windows” in Chrome), and the web browser will clear out the cache when you’ve finished viewing and you start afresh next time. The ‘technology’ behind the Telegraph’s subscription is pretty lame.

      The obvious flaw in this is.. the Telegraph website is, as you say, drivel and getting worse by the day. I have to admit to not bothering with it at all now, even though it’s free.

    “Their social media expert”

    If I were going to reduce a company’s headcount, that’s the sort of job title I’d put the cross-hairs on first.

    Who fucking cares? Honestly.

    This blog is obsessed with media. Not much gossip or scandal or anying of interest to those outside the bubble.

    This blog is now an establishment bore.

    I will collect my refund and fuck off.

      Media Guido is one of those strange things that defy nature. By rights, it should have been stillborn, at the very least dropping dead after a month or two. But it LIVES!

      It shoudn’t. It’s shit. But it will.. not.. die!

      Mwa-ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaa!

      ‘Media Guido’ is ‘obsessed with media’?

      Spooky. Maybe Freddie and Scooby Doo should fucking investigate?

    “The Telegraph digital revolution is going well then”

    Certainly staff are responding well in complement to the genius that has seen most interactive blogs have headlines posing questions of readers but then closing to comments… for various ‘reasons’.

    Only Lord Tebbit seems capable of penning an argument and then being polite and dedicated enough to defend it without ejecting toys from the pram.

    Apparently he learned the hard way that “Social Editor” meant something completely different at the Bellylaugh.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
