Iain Overton Resigns From the Bureau of Smears

The man who sent that now infamous tweet on the morning of the Newsnight McAlpine report has resigned from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Their Managing Editor Iain Overton’s name no longer appears on the BIJ website. Another stunning success for the operation that before this had revealed that Bell Pottinger broke Wikipedia’s terms of use and smeared Help for Heroes. Supporters are running for the hills…

UPDATE:

Nicely forgetting the fact that the BIJ’s Angus Stickler didn’t even show Steve Messham a picture of Lord McAlpine and that it was his misjudged and premature tweet that started this whole sorry mess.

UPDATE: TBIJ have released another statement. The word missing is ‘sorry’…
