#EverydaySexism Rife at Labour Conference

Everyday sexism is rife at Labour conference. Tom Watson waddled off yesterday after describing a bacon butty bearing babe as a “Sun model”:

A rather patronising assumption to make about Cherry Wilson, who is a journalist at the paper specialising in features:

Meanwhile, Sky News political correspondent Sophy Ridge has had her own encounter with a dinosaur:

WATCH: David Cameron Does Taylor Swift

Ever wanted to see Alex Salmond’s Freddie Mercury impression, Alistair Darling signing Rick Astley and David Cameron doing Taylor Swift? The nerds over at Sky News have produced the next best thing in their advert for the independence referendum:

“I used to think that we were forever ever…”

iBoulton

Sky are going all interactive for the new Adam Boulton evening show Sky News Tonight, launching on the first of the month:

“In a first for a major nightly news programme, Sky News Tonight will have comprehensive parallel output on social media, where users will be able to view – and engage with – a host of extra content that will follow, complement and enhance the live TV output, in real time.Viewers will be able to interact with the programme via Sky News’ social media platforms which will give them the power to engage in the discussion, contribute to the debate and even influence the agenda of the show. “

Given the number of people who sit watching TV whilst on Twitter now, it seems like a logical step. The show will also feature high profile interviews conducted from Westminster, at the far more reasonable time of seven through until nine – another reason not to stay up for Newsnight.

Islam & Co Show No Go

Adam Boulton’s replacement as Sky News pol ed is Faisal Islam, formerly the Channel 4 News Economics reporter. Faisal will not be doing a re-branded ‘Boulton & Co’ lunchtime political chat, as the name is being dropped.

Bosses were worried that the “Islam & Co” show might confuse viewers…

Faisal Islam Denies He is the New Sky News Political Editor

The line is that no offer has been made to anyone for the Sky News Political Editor job, though Media Guido understands that it is a run off between current Deputy Political Editor Joey Jones and Channel Four’s Economics Editor Faisal Islam. Islam denied this afternoon that he has been offered the job, though speculation is rife in Westminster and telly-land that he is the chosen one. As was noted earlier, betting has been suspended.

Betting Suspended on Sky News Pol Ed

Paddy Power and Ladbrokes have suspended betting on the next Sky News political editor. It makes sense that if it is an internal hire we will hear imminently. Though the complexity of an external appointment may delay the news a little longer…

UPDATE: Who wouldn’t want the glamour of the job?

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…

Dominic Cummings blasts Sir Jeremy:

“Heywood is more important than anyone in the cabinet, apart from Cameron and Osborne, and arguably more important than Osborne. He sits right next to the prime minister. He has him completely by the balls and Cameron does not do anything without Heywood’s permission.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
