Sky News Political Editor: Down to the Final Three

MediaGuido understands that the final interviews for the Sky News political editor gig will be held tomorrow. Millbank bosses have narrowed it down to the final three, with one of the candidates still in the running describing the process so far as “attritional” and “rigorous, rigorous, rigorous”. Sky sources confirm if they go in-house we can expect an announcement imminently, if they choose an outside candidate we will have to wait. Stay tuned…

      Are you in the running Fawkesy, if not why not or may I say it even a presenter on your own political show, the ability to think on your feet is a prime requirement and possibily the ability to weedle the facts out of obfuscating politicos cutting through the waffle, as such presenters are nearing retirement theres your chance, go for it!

      I’d like Joey Jones to get it too.
      I won’t bother watching if it goes to a
      biased BBC type.

    “final interviews for the Sky News political editor”
    Q1 of 1: Would you be able to pursue the editorial line and keep a straight face, when an interview exposes an obvious and illogical contradiction of reality? Well in that case, welcome to the rabid ideology of institutionalized partisan hypocrisy then.
