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…

The ‘Most Hated Man on Fleet Street’

The news that Chris ‘rat boy’ Evans has been promoted to acting editor of the weekly Telegraph has gone down like a cup of cold sick over at Buckingham Palace Road. “Everyone hates Chris Evans,” says one hack. Others complain of his unrivalled ability to work out what people’s weaknesses are and to ruthlessly exploit them. “The most hated man on Fleet Street” comes up too,“horrifically rude”. He’s known to be “the biggest bastard at the Telegraph.” Which is impressive, given the competition.

You’re Either In Front of Guido…

The Telegraph, Mirror, Indy, et all finally played catch up this morning. So what did the fearless seekers of truth over at the Guardian make of yesterday’s latest nudge down the global rankings for press freedom? Poor Rusbridger pet James Ball, who is off to the States to be their new investigations editor after colleagues claim he was approached by another organisation then used that as promotion leverage, did not have a good day. Is this is the level of investigative journalism we can expect from the Guardian in the future?

He went on to claim it was a diary story at best. Perhaps he should be taking over from Hugh Muir instead.

Indeed it was snarky slow claps all round at Kings Place:

But then again if the story’s not handed to you on a plate by Edward Snowden or Julian Assange, why bother leaving the office? Come back Glenn Greenwald, all is forgiven.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
