Business Boys Exclusive Bust Up

It seems there is nothing more than Robert Peston and Sky’s Mark Kleinman love in life than the word exclusive in front their story. With Sky News determined to get their business coverage up to scratch, the word is seen nearly daily around Kleinman, regardless of how interesting the story is. On the other hand Pesto has had some genuine exclusives about News International in recent months, that strangely coincide with his old mucker Will Lewis moving to the company.

Today the two came head to head, both claiming the exclusive regarding Lord Browne’s apparently imminent appointment as Chairman of commodities giant Glencore. First Kleinman dipped a toe in and said he was hearing it might happen, stressing the might aspect. A furious and humiliated Peston went ahead a confirmed the whole story moments later. About twenty minutes ago Glencore appointed Simon Murray, as its Chairman. You can read Pesto’s exclusive backtracking here. Three points to Kleinman.
