Sky News Deals with Massive Leak

Westminster was dealing with a massive leak this afternoon. Not that of Geoffrey Cox’s legal advice to the PM, but the weather hammered down harder than a supreme court judge’s gavel (yes Guido knows UK judges don’t use gavels but the metaphor worked well). 

Watch above as Kay Burley deals with a massive drip, and Guido’s not talking about Lewis Goodall…

McCluskey’s Car Crash Attempt To Bully Media at Labour Conference

Yesterday evening, the Unite General Secretary flat out denied a Jon Lansman quote put to him by Sky’s Beth Rigby.

“Jon Lansman never said that. Stop telling lies. You should be ashamed of yourself. You should be ashamed of yourself. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

But Jon Lansan did say exactly what Rigby quoted.

McCluskey’s actions look like a clear attempt to discredit and gaslight journalists asking legitimate questions. Sadly for Len, this tactic doesn’t work so well when what you say is so easily disprovable, no matter how many times you say it…

The furious heckling of Beth Rigby just doing her job adds to an overtly-anti-media Labour Party conference, with Corbyn yelling at the media and Dawn Buttler lying about the ‘MSM’ not covering certain stories (that they have). And Labour like to claim they’re any different to Donald Trump…

Jon Craig’s Sweary Sarcasm

In response to Len McCluskey’s statement of the blindingly obvious that the next general election will be about who the country trusts, Sky News‘ Jon Craig was caught demonstrating some top-tier sarcasm in response. Even on a Sunday evening, you can’t get anything past MediaGuido…

Did Kay Burley Vote in the Referendum?

In a confrontation with Brexit Hero Lucy Harris MEP yesterday, Sky News’ Kay Burley claimed “I didn’t vote” in the EU referendum.

However, a quick scroll back to Kay’s tweets on the day of the referendum suggests otherwise, having Tweeted ‘#ivoted’ seven times that day.

She even implied she battled through the torrential downpour to get there. Kay signed off the interview by pointing to a report that said Sky News is the most trusted in the country. Guido finds that hard to believe

Sky News ‘Focus Group’ Stuffed Full of Remain Activists

Fresh from sensationally revealing that Conservative Party adverts “were highly partisan”, Sky News Technology Correspondent Rowland Manthorpe has compiled a report on young people and political adverts. Strangely the only two people interviewed in Manthorpe’s ‘focus group’ are political activists for the Second Referendum campaign…

  • Matilda Allan (titled by Sky as “Teenager”) set up an organisation called “New Generation for a People’s Vote”.
  • Athian Akec (titled by Sky as “Student”) is an anti-Brexit ‘Our Future Our Choice’ activist and (naturally) a Member of the Youth Parliament.

The other two members of Sky’s ‘focus group’ were cut out of the report. Presumably what they had to say didn’t fit the narrative…

UPDATE: Guido has seen Whatsapp messages from Our Future Our Choice coordinating their spokespeople for the so-called ‘focus group’.

Another Sky Correspondent Goes Rogue

Just a day after Sky News Correspondent Ashish Joshi made the extraordinary claim on live TV that “Nigel Farage clearly likes Prince Harry in Nazi uniforms”, another Sky correspondent has been giving their highly partisan views a rather too public airing. This time it’s Sky Sports News correspondent Kaveh Solhekol, who tweeted:

Solhekol has now deleted the tweet. Sky in danger of starting to look like Channel 4 News at this rate…
