Gary Gibbon’s Scoop That Never Was

Not the best day for Sky News politcal editor wannabe Garry Gibbon. Channel 4’s news breaker extraordinaire had the riveting scoop of the day, revealing on his blog the insider details of the reforms going through Labour’s NEC. The big exclusive told us that the unions would nod it through, though Blairites are worried about the new higher nominations threshold for leadership candidates. A story which we had all read at breakfast time on LabourList. Gary noticed that too later, and quietly snuck into the piece a little addendum.

“I’ve just seen LabourList has already written this all up. But as I’d written the above, thought I’d share it anyway.”

Scoop!

          what do journalists really want to be, politicos of course, they seem to know everything but know nothing but what is fed to them, and of course they can maintain the status of journalist in case they get voted out.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”



cynic says:

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?
