Sky’s Boris Bashing Teacher is Momentum Activist

18 May

Teacher Ellie Sharp appeared on Sky News over the weekend to engage in some good old Tory bashing. She repeatedly said the phrase “speaking as a teacher” and “speaking as an educator” before claiming “I don’t believe Boris Johnson has our best interests at heart.” Perhaps she would have been less misleading if she had said […]

Sky’s ‘Leading GP’ Criticising Government Tests is Another Left Wing Activist

1 May

Following today’s briefing and test success, Sky News are running a piece about claims from a “leading GP” that the at-home tests being sent out by the government may be “useless” as people might not administer them properly.  Who is Dr Gary Marlowe, a General Practitioner, who thinks he knows better than the SAGE specialists?

Ratings Are In, Peston and Piers Suck Worse Than Politicians

24 Apr

Guido has been banging on about what a shocking performance we have been getting from the prima donnas of infotainment, the presenters and pundits who are going over the top to get gotcha moments for ratings. Well the ratings are in and the public thinks they suck worse than politicians. A lot worse… According to […]

All Must Have TV Prizes

27 Feb

At the Royal Television Society awards last night Emily Maitlis and Newsnight were deservedly double award winners with Scoop of the Year and Presenter of the Year for the game changing Prince Andrew interview.

Kay’s Capital Punishment for on Camera Cock-Up

21 Jan

Justice Secretary Robert Buckland had the pleasure of being the first ministerial guest on Kay Burley’s breakfast show since James Cleverly was empty chaired by her during the election campaign. Keen to heal the rift, when Burley’s teleprompter wrongly called Buckland the ‘Shadow Justice Secretary’ she was a little overzealous in what should happen to those […]

Sky Teams Up with BuzzFeed for Overwhelmingly Left-Wing Election Night Programme

11 Dec

Sky News‘s ‘Election Social‘ programme on Thursday evening is set to be a corker. Co-organised by BuzzFeed, the show’s political balance is non-existent. Sky News’s Lewis Goodall and Roland Manthorpe will co-host with two Buzzfeed journalists… Guido understands that BuzzFeed was responsible for much of the running order, resulting in an extraordinary ideological bias. The only […]

Adam Claims Sky Views Not An Opinion Piece

10 Oct

Thus is a misrepresentation @GuidoFawkes in a long and detailed article @BethRigby examines the options of the various political factions on #Brexit. She uses the word “should” in the sense of what the rebel alliance should be doing to pursue their goals. https://t.co/vmlfS5LMXZ — Adam Boulton (@adamboultonSKY) October 9, 2019 Adam Boulton is loyally defending […]

9 Oct

Sky News’ Political Editor Beth Rigby has written an extraordinary opinion piece for Sky’s website, arguing that “Parliament can, and should, take back control” and “dispose of Mr Johnson should he refuse to sanction a Brexit extension.” Following in the tradition of other Sky correspondents…  The supposedly impartial broadcaster went on to lift tired Remain […]

Sky News Deals with Massive Leak

24 Sep

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 […]
