THE SUN’S HARRY COLE: New Era of Punctuation & Punctuality

sleeping-harry

Harry Cole – our Westminster Bureau Chief better known to readers as Neo-Guido – is off to join The Sun as their Westminster Correspondent. Craig Woodhouse becomes The Sun’s Chief Political Correspondent.

Harry joined Guido in 2008 as an intern on the back of his Tory Bear blog, where he completely ripped off Guido’s modus operandi to take on student politicians – some of whom are now in parliament. He stayed for the summer and after graduating decided not to follow a career in the law and instead become a media outlaw. Coming back in 2009 to enjoy that glorious period of MP bashing known as the Expenses Scandal. He always planned to stay for a year-or-so before getting a proper job… 

Harry’s considerable charm and panache more than compensated for his idiosyncratic early writing style, which Guido would describe as “after-dinner-speech”, this however allowed him to  branch out into writing for the Spectator. He’s also been writing for mainstream media tabloids for years – it is no small skill be able to write well received features for The Spectator and the tightly written popular journalism that has seen Guido’s Sun column contract renewed for three years – winning him fans at The Sun to such an extent that they have poached him. It is no exaggeration to say that the success of Guido over the last 6 years is in large part down to Harry. The puns, the fun, the ability to get a story – often after an inexplicably long lunch – brilliance.

Harry’s new colleagues in parliament will no doubt appreciate and welcome his strong views, as expressed to the Press Gazette, on morally bankrupt Lobby journalism. How he came to be woken up from kipping overnight on a sofa by a Permanent Secretary at 7 a.m. in the Secretary of State’s private ministerial office will always remain our secret. Yes, we are hiring

Out-of-the-Loop Chris Bryant Hasn’t a Clue

As Guido revealed in this week’s Sun on Sunday:

“The BBC has announced 1,000 jobs are to go as part of a £150 million round of cuts. These job losses would cover just £50 million of the sum, however, leaving another £100 million awaiting Aunty’s axe.

Guido hears that the BBC’s little-watched 24-hour News Channel is in the firing line, with plans afoot to shift the operation online and stop broadcasting on telly. BBC bosses are waiting until this week’s budget before a final decision.”

A story which caused a certain degree of scepticism from the impeccably dis-connected Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport:

That would be our double-sourced drivel from senior BBC sources. 48 hours later, Media Guardian confirms Guido’s Sun exclusive:

“The BBC is considering making its news channel online only following a similar cost-cutting move for its BBC3 TV channel, it has emerged.

Work had already started on assessing the impact of making the news channel online only before the government unveiled a surprise licence fee settlement on Monday… A final decision about the channel has yet to be made.”

As Guido explained, the Beeb has a £100 million spending black hole to fill. Media Guardian reports the News Channel’s overall costs are just over £100 million:

“In the last BBC annual report, it said the channel’s production costs were £26.8m, while its newsgathering costs were £21.2m. In addition, the news channel spent £48.7m on content, £8m on distribution and £9.5m on infrastructure/support in 2013/14 and taking it online only would prove cheaper for the BBC, which is looking to make savings.”

If Chris needs any further help with his brief, he knows where to come…

Your Boys Took One Helluva Beating….

Media Standards Trust Research Finds Mirror Most Partisan Newspaper

mirror-biased

The Guardian supported Media Standards Trust has released research which is remarkable. The twitterati left have been making an issue of the treatment of Ed Miliband, the reporting of his nose picking and inability to eat a bacon sandwich or exit a TV stage without tripping up particularly vexes lefties who want reporting to be about boring issues rather than character. They have been particularly bilious about The Sun’s partisanship… 

The Mirror’s partisanship has gone unremarked in the broadsheets, the way it caricatures Tories as wicked toffs intent on closing down the NHS and grinding the poor into the workhouses is reportage from a surreal alternative reality. For the left the Sun’s journalism is partisan rubbish whereas the Mirror’s journalism is “campaigning”.

The above graphic is based on 7,000 articles analysed by the Media Standards Trust’s Election Unspun project. It found that the most partisan paper was The Mirror, which was more positive about Labour than The Sun was about the Tories and conversely The Mirror was more negative about the Tories than The Sun was about the Labour party. In short, The Mirror was the most partisan paper of all…

Well, this will be interesting on Friday morning. On election night in 2010, one Ed Miliband said that the “constitutional position is clear” and “very simple”: in the event of a hung parliament “the Prime Minister gets to have the first crack”.[…] Read the rest
